Electric vehicles are becoming more popular, but one of the main worries that potential buyers have is "range anxiety" - the fear of running out of battery power before reaching their destination. Josh Aviv, CEO of SparkCharge, is addressing this issue with his startup. SparkCharge is a portable battery charging unit that can be delivered to a car's location, allowing for an extra 100 miles of driving range in under two hours. SparkCharge has raised a substantial amount of money from investors and has forged partnerships with major brands. Subscription packages range from $5 to $30 per month and charging rates are between $0.51 and $0.69 per kWh. The service is already available in 121 U.S. cities, and Aviv plans to expand to more locations in 2023. SparkCharge is projected to generate $10 million in revenue this year.
