Extending your range?

I’ve seen a few people post ideas in the FFE forums about how to pull a generator behind your EV to give you that extra bit of range. It is an interesting thought…enough of one that someone actually designed a thing: I give you the EP Tender (here is their main website).

I don’t think this guy will work for my beloved Focus Electric because he taps into the vehicle between the charger and the battery (since most EVs don’t allow charging while driving). It basically turns your EV into a PHEV with a cute little trailer. Even more fascinating is the simple solution to backing up (watch the video).
