Charge-Up, founded by Varun Goenka in 2019 is one of India’s leading battery exchanging networks. Charge-up provides a simple battery service. The batteries that they provide can both be used for two-wheelers and three-wheelers. The batteries are obtained by the company on lease from manufacturers and delivered as a service through dealer locations.
Creating the biggest distribution system for electric and 2&3 wheelers is the main objective. The company assists in joining their service without any extra costs for e-rickshaw drivers. Drivers who subscribed to a daily battery rental plan are permitted by Charge-up to go to the swapping station more than two times a day for exchanging the discharged batteries with fully-charged ones.
The course of exchanging batteries takes just 2 minutes and the Lithium-ion batteries are 30 kg less in weight in comparison to the traditional ones. The company has helped the drivers to raise their range and profits through this practice.
