Portable Type 2 (240Vac) Mobile Petrol Genset

I'm excited by this!

"Blink's new mobile charger is a free-standing EV charging station that supports 40-amp, 240-volt AC charging, and provides up to 9.6kW"

Should not be hard to adapt to powering ebike chargers, RC Hobby charging in the field, House banks for campers / RVs / liveaboard boats, off-grid cabins.

Kind of gives full-EVs the flexibility of a Hybrid, ease range anxiety for the occasional long journey.

I just hope it is more like the little, very quiet Honda gennies, rather than the noisy construction site ones.

Wonder whether its 240V output is US or Euro style, but with good "universal world input" mains chargers, that should not matter.

Perfectly sized to get a 1200+Ah LFP bank @12V fully charged in well under 2hours

or a 48V propulsion / hybrid bank going @180A

That's about the same weight as my Onan 8kw diesel genset which puts out 112/240 AC. I don't see the plus here as it has got to cost over 5 grand for a gas 240 volt genset.
