At the heart of ZipCharge Go is a lithium-ion battery housed in an aluminum frame and recycled plastic housing. The gadget is equipped with a pair of wheels and a retractable handle. It is assumed that the owner will charge the portable energy storage device from a household outlet, and later use it to charge an electric vehicle parked on the street.

The capacity of the ZipCharge Go is 8 kWh. A portable battery will be able to fully give all the energy to an electric vehicle in 50-55 minutes. It can be stored at home or in the trunk of a car.

Thanks to the built-in sim-card, the user can always monitor the charge level and other parameters of the device through a special application.

ZipCharge Go was developed by two UK engineers with backgrounds at McLaren, Jaguar and Lotus. The serial version of the device will appear in 2022 at a price of 500-1000 euros, depending on the amount of government benefits in a particular region. Power bank will also be available by subscription.
