Ubitricity MobileCharging system is a simple, cheap to install and easy to use system for charging of the electric cars, that are becoming more and more popular. Since air pollution and climate changes are attracting more and more attention, electric vehicles are a solution. However, the challenge for the authorities is to meet the demand for public stations to charge the batteries of these vehicles.
Ubitricity, SmartCable, SimpleSocket
The Ubitricity MobileCharging system provides the opportunity to build public charging stations in places where electric vehicles usually park, during day and night. A key component of the system is SmartCable with an integrated meter of consumed electricity.
SmartCable is a unique solution and contains all the technology needed for communication, measurement and charging. By this way, the charging station is reduced and can be integrated even in the smallest street poles.
SimpleSocket can be installed in existing street lighting, creating the necessary infrastructure for charging electric vehicles in the heart of the inhabited areas, without the need for additional devices and with minimal installation.

Due to lower costs, multiple charging points can be installed. The charging points on the street are recommended for every electric vehicle driver.
Reduced delivery time:
SimpleSocket does not require any permission to equip street banners. This reduces the planning and delivery time of new charging stations.
Each resident individually selects a contract for their SmartCable device, and an electricity provider of their choice. In this way, users of electric vehicles carry their electricity tariff with them wherever they go.
