JTM Power Ltd. announces their EV Rescue 5kW - Portable Charging Station for Electric Vehicles (EV) 

EV Rescue 5kW is a stand-alone portable Electric Vehicle charger which charges an electric car independent of the electricity supply network. This means that an electric car can be powered up by the EV Rescue with 20km of range in half an hour to enable the driver to get to the nearest public charge point or to the motorist's own home charge point. It is ideal in an emergency situation to bring energy to the road side or in any location where there is no grid connection and it is also very advantageous that it can be brought to the car rather than being towed away by a recovery truck to a nearby charging station.

EV Rescue is a world first in mobile charging for electric vehicles, which was developed by JTM Power at their Rathnew, Co Wicklow facility. JTM is one of the first Irish companies to become involved in Electric Vehicle product development, taking advantage of Ireland' leadership role in the early adoption of electric cars. Ireland is an ideal test bed for electric transport and as a result companies like JTM and international firms are developing and trialling their products here. ESB ecars, responsible for the roll out of charge points, gave technical advice to JTM in the early stages of product development and is one of the first customers of EV Rescue.

"The EV Rescue is the culmination of years of R&D investment by our company", explains James Tracey, Managing Director, JTM Power Ltd. He goes on to say that "We have over 10 year's experience in high density power from our traditional business, professional jumpstarters. We studied the Electric Vehicle market and Ireland's proactive ecar programme and decided to diversify into this emerging market. We now have plans for developing an exciting range of mobile charging products.
