☐ A portable charger
☐ A heavy duty, outdoors extension cable (50ft +)
If you are going to be away from cities and charging infrastructure, say you are going camping, it is recommended to have your own charger. Most camp grounds will have power outlets for RVs, but they may not have the charging adapter for your car. So bring yours.
There are lot of these chargers out there. How do you select one?
- Make sure it works with your EV’s charging (duh!)
- I would look for something that can deliver at least 32 Amps
- And can be plugged into NEMA 14-50 outlets (most common in USA)
I have a Jekayla Level 2 32 Amp Portable Charger. Works well. I like the display so I can see the current status and current draw.
Here are few you might want to consider:
And, this is important, before you leave, test the charger at home!
