Think about how much electricity surrounds you. Power lines, lights, signs, outlets — imagine how far you’d have to travel to get away from electricity completely.

But if power is all around us, why is it so difficult to find charging for electric vehicles (EVs)?

This question is what sparked one company to wonder, “Why are we reinventing the gas station model for EVs? If power is everywhere, all we need are more intelligent solutions to share it.”

That company was Power Hero. And it’s committed to creating a smarter EV charging grid.

Much like their smartphones, EV owners want to plug in their car at night and wake up to a full charge. But personal EV wall chargers are a luxury, and only practical for single-family home owners. For the 100 million Americans living in apartments and urban areas, installing these chargers is expensive and inconvenient.

Meanwhile, public charging is extremely flawed. For one thing, it’s hard to find charging stations. For another, many are damaged, incompatible, or unclear with respect to pricing.

Power Hero’s innovative, patented technology intends to create a world where anyone can get up to 100 miles of charging range overnight on an existing 120V circuit. And this technology can be found in the company’s solution, PowerPac.

PowerPac is a home charging station designed for any apartment or condo dweller. It takes 120v power in and stores it while the driver is away. When they return, PowerPac provides that power back to the driver at 240v speed, then reverts to regular 120v charging.

Additionally, Power Hero has created Cameo, a device that makes any “non-networked” charger a connected, reservable charging station. This is ideal for government agencies seeking to aggregate all charging onto a single network. And it enables those who have chargers installed at their home or business to open access up to the public, creating revenue opportunities.

Power Hero earns revenue through direct hardware sales and leases, but also offers subscriptions to businesses and retailers.

Power Hero has created prototypes of its PowerPac and Cameo, and received four patents for its technology. The EV market is projected to surpass $450 billion in 2023 and reach $846 billion by 2027.
