Emergency EV Charging

NW Fuel Drain are proud to bring you ‘Energized’ a mobile fast charging service for your Electric vehicle 24/7.

If you have run out of charge mid journey or find yourself at a location with no charging facilities we can assist day or night.

Utilising our existing fleet of wrong fuel removal vans we have been able to fit in a powerful generator and 7kw charger which can quickly provide sufficient charge to reach the nearest charging station.

Energized giving your EV a boost?

Energized provide a mobile fast charging service for your Electric Vehicle across the North West & North Wales 24/7. If you have run out of charge mid-journey, or find yourself at a location with no charging facilities, we can assist day or night.

We carry type 2 charging leads and converters to connect to type 1 sockets this enables us to connect to all Electric vehicle’s currently in the UK, and a 30-minute charge will normally be sufficient to reach the nearest charging station, dependant on the type of EV you have.

Whilst on scene our technicians will check and advise as to where the nearest charging station is and ensure sufficient charge is given to reach that destination.

Problems with EVs

What happens when an electric car runs out of battery charge?

Flattening your electric car’s battery is something to avoid if possible. The inconvenience it causes will be major – and it may affect the long-term health of the battery.

With an electric car, there will be no friendly good Samaritan with a can of volts to pour into your tank. Or indeed to give you a quick jump-start. The likelihood is your EV will need to be loaded onto a trailer and towed to a charging point.

You’ll then have another long wait before the batteries have charged sufficiently to continue your journey.

How likely are EVs to run out of charge?

The chance of being left stranded should be slim. The battery gauge will give you plenty of warning, and your satellite navigation or Zap Map will point you to the nearest charging point when you need it.

The majority of electric cars also have an inbuilt de-powering system. If the electronics detect you are close to running flat, the power available to drive the car will be decreased and the speed limited. This should give you the best possible chance of reaching a charging point.

Can I tow an electric car?

You can’t tow an EV in the old-fashioned sense, with a rope or bar behind another vehicle. This is because of how the electric motors are connected to the wheels, including the absence of a neutral gear.

You need to refer to the specific instructions for each car. Most need to be loaded onto a flatbed trailer, but some can be towed on a ‘dolly’ where the front wheels are raised and the rears remain on the road.

We hope we might play a part in helping motorists overcome range anxiety, by knowing help is at hand in an emergency 24/7
