There’s a huge gap in EV charging availability in urban areas. Power Hero’s products are designed to provide fast overnight EV charging to 100M Americans living in apartments and detached homes with multiple EVs. 

People do not want to charge electric vehicles like they pump gasoline. They want to plug their cars in at home or at work, much like the way they charge their phones.

With six patents and more pending, proven prototypes, an experienced executive team, and Board with several exits including a unicorn, Power Hero aims to change the way we deliver charging to a rapidly growing EV market.

key highlights

  • Founders and Board members withover ten exits including a unicorn, has proven IPO, M&A and CEO track records.
  • Pilot agreements in place with the California cities of La Verne, Seal Beach and Buena Park - which opens access to 270,000 apartment buildings and 6M renter occupied units in the State of California.
  • Partnership with Verizon for product development and sales.
  • 6 total patents granted or approved covering connected charging stations, personal 120V/240V chargers, mobile station charging and cloud-based charging networks.
  • 2 patents granted and prototypes developed for Cameo - connecting any EV charger to the cloud via 4G.
  • Patent approved for PowerPac - bringing meaningful overnight 120V/240V charging solutions to 100M Americans in apartments and condos.
  • The global electric vehicle market was valued at $163.01 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $823.75 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 18.2% from 2021 to 2030.
  • EV Charger market is projected to grow 10-fold by 2030 with companies currently trading at 30X Revenue.
"Power Pac allows for easy installation of meaningful, overnight charging at older buildings and multi-unit residences, creates easy charging for employees, and can be ideal for installation at public structures."
– Arthur C. Brown
Mayor of Buena Park, California


People don’t like to wait in line. They prefer to charge their EVs at home or at work, but lack of power capacity or wiring restrictions renders that an impossibility for over 100 million Americans and millions more detached homes with multiple EVs. 

Moreover, finding reliable daily parking near a charging station is challenging and reserving it is almost impossible, leading to significant range anxiety for those looking to buy an EV.

We don’t need to line up at more public electricity pumps - we need more intelligent solutions that help EV owners access the electricity all around us.


Power Hero’s Patented Solutions allow for easy installation and networking of EV chargers anywhere there is existing power.

  • PowerPac(™) is a powerful overnight solution for apartment residents. It attaches to any regular plug or circuit and banks power while the driver is away - delivering up to 100 miles of range per day.
  • Cameo(™) attaches to any standard Level-2 charger and networks it to the cloud so it can be found, reserved, and transacted. This allows drivers to more reliably reserve charging time and turns any charger into a potential revenue source.
  • mPower(™) is a mobile charging station that brings power where it is needed - for a driver in need, seasonal events, or even emergency response.


Finally, a powerful overnight solution for apartment or condo living. PowerPac takes 120V power in and stores it while you are gone. When you return, PowerPac dishes that power back to you at 240V speed, then reverts to regular 120V charging.

Unlike competitors, PowerPac is designed so it can be dropped onto any existing 120V circuit - no expensive rewiring to buildings and parking garages.

*Artist rendition. PowerPac™ prototypes are currently in the design phase.*

Makes any non-networked 240V Level 2 charger a connected and reservable charging station — easy for anyone to find. Cameo is ideal for government agencies wishing to manage all their un-connected chargers on a single network. We believe Cameo has the potential to open up millions of private home and business chargers to the public.

*Prototype completed. Demonstrating to potential pilot partners.*

Today, over 100M Americans live in apartments, condos, and multi-unit rental homes. Many of these are younger americans and the most enthusiastic segment of the market when it comes to EV. Millions also live in detached homes with multiple EVs which may only have power circuitry for one EV.

According to Canary Media, 80% of EV charging is done at home.

The U.S. electric vehicle market is projected to grow from $28.24 billion in 2021 to $137.43 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 25.4% in forecast period, 2021-2028

Major US cities have extremely aggressive goals for new EV purchases over the next 5 to 10 years (Fortune Business Insights).

EV market share for new vehicles is likely to reach 40% by 2030, at which point the total number of EVs in operation could reach 28.3 million, according to S&P Global Mobility forecasts.

As EV car sales skyrocket, the market for EV charging is also predicted to continue growing at a fast pace. Currently, there are established competitors for EV charging, however we have identified an unmet market need. Our competitive advantage is our IP and our products fit a niche that may enable the transition to clean transportation in urban areas, with the potential to deliver convenient and affordable EV charging anywhere.

What is the use case for PowerPac™?
PowerPac is designed for EV drivers who live in urban areas with no flexibility to install Level 2 charging. These Level 2 chargers deliver about 20 miles of range per hour and are perfect to top your car off every night.

Unfortunately, they require heavier wiring and voltage requirements that involve expensive installations. It’s very unlikely landlords may spend that kind of money on people renting in multi-unit residences, like apartment buildings. However, PowerPac is designed to work on existing standard 120V circuits accessible just about anywhere there is power.

120V plugs charge EVs very slowly – delivering about 4 miles of range per hour. But PowerPac is being designed to amplify the effect by storing power for up to 12 hours while you go to work. Then delivering that charge back to your car like a level 2 charger when you return. PowerPac is being designed to allow urban dwellers a way to bank up to 100 miles of range every night.
How do you envision an apartment dweller buying and installing a PowerPac™?
Our vision:

The driver may need to connect Power Hero with their landlord, where our customer service team may coordinate approval for the installation. Power Hero incentivizes landlords with a revenue stream that covers power costs plus some additional monthly income. We also intend to establish local incentives from municipalities and power companies to further incentivize landlords.

PowerPac can be purchased or rented directly from Power Hero. Power Hero may also distribute to auto dealerships that can easily finance PowerPacs with the purchase of a vehicle. PowerPac may be delivered and installed by one of our certified local partners.
What is the use case for Cameo™?
S&P Global Mobility estimates there are 37,250 Level 3 Chargers. These are networked, expensive and deliver electricity very fast. But there are 126,500 Level 2 chargers in much greater abundance capable of delivering significant charge levels. However, very few of these are networked. Even networked solutions are dispersed among several apps and are difficult for EV drivers to manage, particularly in an emergency.

Cameo allows any unnetworked charger to be easily networked so it can be located, reserved, and provisioned for specific people or public transactions. We believe this provides an opportunity to accelerate two significant events in the market.

1) The growth of P2P charging networks. More and more people sharing chargers, including both private individuals and businesses. Cameo allows anyone to network any charger for easy remote management.

 2) Geographically centralized EV charging networks. Until now, connectivity hasn’t been a meaningful tool to make charging more accessible. No one wants to run ethernet to all these level 2 chargers. But Cameo now finally allows for instant networking of any charger. We believe this could enable cities, states, and counties to make thousands of chargers public instantly. These entities are primary targets for Cameo.
Why is Cameo™ needed if there are listing apps for EV chargers?
Listing apps lack the key element of charger availability and reservation. They don’t give you real-time information and let you know if the charger is in use or not, and they cannot be reserved. That is especially key for smaller, more dispersed chargers designed to be used while you park and do other things.

This, we hope, may become the norm someday, and the world is full of smaller chargers that allow you to top off everywhere you park. Cameo is a key piece to network these chargers, enable reservations, and provision transactions. Once a true marketplace is established, private enterprise can step up to outpace expensive government infrastructure projects.
Why do apartment dwellers need overnight charging when there are lots of public charging stations? 
EV charging is not like filling your car with gas. Even the fastest chargers take 20-30 minutes to fully charge a vehicle- longer if you have to wait behind another car. This is not a fun weekly event. People want to manage their cars like their cell phones. Go to bed, then wake up topped off with enough power to get through their day. Apartment dwellers do not have that luxury: Access to charging is holding back the most enthusiastic segment of the market. We believe PowerPac™ has the potential to break this market free.
As a Power Hero investor, shouldn't I worry about your competition? 
S&P Global Mobility says registration data shows that there are 1.9 million EVs on US roads — 0.7% of the 281 million vehicles in operations — as of October 31, 2022. 

By 2030, it's forecasted that there may be over 25M EVs, still nowhere close to replacing all the gas-powered cars on the road. This market is poised for high growth over the next 20 years. Even in a competitive market, all participants benefit at high growth rates. Additionally, Power Hero addresses significant unmet needs in this market with robust patent protections.
Why are you only raising $600k? Won't you need more money?
We do not want to dilute our shareholders needlessly. $600K is enough to pilot our Cameo and prototype our PowerPac. At that point, we believe we can raise more funds at higher valuations for commercial rollout.

In addition, we have had a good engineering relationship with Arrow Electronics, a multi-billion-dollar global contract manufacturing company who are desirous of manufacturing our Cameo and extending credit to us. Such credit may reduce the need for equity capital.
What makes Power Hero unique? 
Power Hero is deploying innovative, patented technology in one of the fastest-growing global markets. A market fueled by user demand and significant government investments all over the globe.

Power Hero is a low-cost and smart solution with the potential to deploy thousands of public chargers without significant infrastructure expenses. Besides having the confidence of Arrow Electronics, we are also working with Verizon Wireless, and as such, we have demonstrated business credibility to large, sophisticated enterprise partners.

Besides value creation, seasoned management at the helm ensures that we can steer Power Hero through any storms that may arise, and the ability to secure such strategic collaborations such as Verizon, which may well be a rescue avenue.
What is Power Hero's exit strategy? 
We believe our bank of patents is very attractive both commercially and strategically. PowerPac™ taps a very large and enthusiastic urban market for EV chargers. A place most charger companies have to work through developers for more expensive installations. Cameo strategically creates a large central network that can force the hand of competitors to connect to your cloud to survive. Power Hero’s mPower™ mobile charging stations are patented, paving the way for someone to own this inevitably large market.

In the case of a potential acquisition, which is not guaranteed, we believe the acquirer is getting both compelling market products and strategic patents that can hamstring competitors. We complement many products and services oriented to EV and travel.

Suitors potentially range from the hospitality, travel, auto, surveillance, energy, and even the advertising and electronics industries. Consider also the fact that most auto manufacturers are committed to growing their EV business, and none, other than Tesla, has its own network of charging stations. We believe this makes Power Hero an attractive alternative – especially leveraging PowerPac to gain an upper hand on the underserved market of apartment dwellers.

    We’ve been traveling up and down California talking to stakeholders from different cities.

    Some of the best feedback we get is about how PowerPac will allow people to draw power off-peak when costs are lower. PowerPac evenly banks power throughout the day and can be remotely managed to load up off-peak. If every EV driver hits the grid at 220V and 40 amps at 5:30 PM, that puts massive pressure on the grid. PowerPac will be a big help to utilities managing power demand to a growing base of EV drivers.

    Also, solutions like mPower and PowerPac can be set up as demand-response and virtual power plant solutions. Giving utilities the ability to manage and avoid capacity outages. The utilities pay for this in terms of both readiness and actual usage – providing another revenue stream and a better return on investment.

    We love this kind of feedback! Please provide feedback when you invest and let us know where YOU think we can make the biggest impact.
