Despite leading in solar energy generation, Australia lags in electric vehicle (EV) adoption, with EVs making up less than 5% of all vehicles on the road, significantly lower than the global average. The scarcity of public charging stations, totaling just over 3,000 by the end of 2023, exacerbates “range anxiety” among Australian drivers.

Innovative Solution by Industry Expert
Joel Wille, a seasoned electrician and solar panel installation business owner with 15 years in Australia’s sustainable industry, recognized the urgent need for more accessible EV charging options. EJerry, Australia’s first portable EV charger, emerged from his vision to mitigate range anxiety by providing a convenient, on-the-go charging solution.

EJerry: The Portable Power Solution
Designed as the electric vehicle’s answer to the traditional jerry can, EJerry is a compact, lightweight (under 18kg) portable charger with a significant energy capacity of 2218Wh. It boasts ten output ports for charging EVs and powering various devices, making it ideal for a wide range of users, from remote workers to outdoor enthusiasts.

Extending Range and Versatility
EJerry can extend an EV’s range by an additional 20 kilometers with a full charge, or alternatively recharge a laptop 26 times, a smartphone 133 times, or run a fridge for 13 hours. Its high output capabilities and versatility make it an essential tool not just for EV owners, but also for small businesses, construction sites, and off-grid living.

Solar Charging Compatibility
Understanding the importance of sustainable power, Joel integrated solar charging compatibility into EJerry. A foldable, portable solar panel accessory can recharge EJerry in just five hours, offering an eco-friendly and cost-effective charging option.

A Step Towards Greener Future
