What if the battery of an electric vehicle runs out when you are out of town, and there is no ev charging station nearby? There are not the same number of ev charging stations like gas stations or lpg stations, so if you are in a situation of no gas, it will be difficult to solve. Carrying a battery in a vehicle might be useful, but not every driver is going to use a second battery.
So the idea is to charge electric vehicles' batteries with a drone from far distance.
Inserting the drivers location and ev information into an application brings the closest drone remotly to driver. When drone lands, the drivers put out a charging gun from the ev charge drone and charge their vehicle.
