About

DRIVE AND CHARGE T-SHIRT
DRIVE AND CHARGE T-SHIRT

This is an idea to change the way electric cars are charged. Currently electric cars are limited by the amount of miles per charge. This invention would change that by offering the ability to drive without the need to stop and recharge. After deciding that my next car would be an electric car, I started thinking of ways to drive and charge my own vehicle when I get one. After8 months I finally created a template of what I called the Electric Car Drive and Charge system. A system that can fit any electric Vehicle.

How it works. 

A device with its own power source powers up and generate enough voltage to out match the output of the battery voltage going to the inverter this allows the battery to be charged while driving similar to how gas cars charges and maintains its Battery. Similar concept just a different approach.

The Unit will be enclosed with all components inside. with the press of a button the device will power on. At the motor sucks power from the battery enclosed the generator will generate current then, gets converted to DC which then gets connected to the Car battery. We will basically put more voltage to the battery than its using to charge it up while it works. 

For example if you are using 100v at a light Drive and charge will be sending 500v or more depending on what the battery can take. If you are driving and your are using 300v drive and charge will be sending 500v so we are always above what you're using. 

We are also looking to add sensors where we can adjust how many volts gets pumped in the battery, for example if you are at 60mph and you are using 500v the system would pump for example 700v to 800v to top what the usage voltage is. 

Another idea we are contemplating is connecting the system directly to the Vehicle Inverter so instead of using the power from the battery we are using the current from Drive and Charge. 

The most important thing is the Idea is ready to be manufactured, once manufactured its a matter of test to get it working, we can generate the current guaranteed its just getting the car and see where it would work best.


Donations would go towards
1. purchasing parts required to make this device 
2. design and create a mold for the housing of the device
3. manufacture the housing
4. manufacture the custom parts necessary to complete the design
5. perform a real world test of the device
6. protection of the idea

Risks and challenges

challenges includes
a) tapping in the electrical system and allow the car to charge while its moving. This is no big deal

b) installation when the system is ready. We have to decide to sell the product with do it yourself instructions or we do installations. This is important but not a road block.
