You probably have some questions
These are the questions we often hear when people first find out about Charge Fairy. If you want to ask us anything else, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do you charge my car?
We've built a unique mobile charging solution that fits into any electric van. Currently we use Nissan ENV200s.
The charger is a rapid DC charger, like the ones you find on motorway service stations. But instead of the charger getting its power directly from the National Grid, we pair it with a large battery. Like the battery in your car, but bigger.
What if you can’t park your van behind or in front of my car?
We like to park as close as possible to your car. Ideally, that's just in front or behind, but sometimes that's not possible. Fortunately, we've built our mobile charger with a 15M cable so we can park up to 3 cars away and still charge you.
Worst case though, we might have to double park for a few minutes to get close enough. If you live on a narrow road, we make sure we visit at times where that's likely to cause the least disruption.
Why are you more expensive than the rapid chargers at a petrol station or motorway services?
If you compare our weekly subscription to the price you might pay at a public charger, we are a little more expensive. However, with Charge Fairy you don't need to schedule charging into your regular routine or worry about finding an available, working charge point.
Is your driver able to open or drive my car?
Our drivers are routed to your car when it needs charging. As they get close, they are able to trigger the car's lights to flash to help them find it at night. When they're close enough to charge your car, they can unlock its charge port.
No other access or functionality is available to our drivers.
How much charge do I get each week?
Our subscriptions include a 50kWh per week fair-usage limit. This is typically enough for between 120 and 200 of driving, more than most UK cars travel in a week.
Over time, we will offer more packages, at different prices, for drivers with different charging needs.
