Question About add-in battery chargers for EVīs

I wonder if somebody has developed an add-in, on board, travelling, battery charger to extend the range of EVīs.

I also wonder if they are based in reciprocating engines, or in turbine engines, that are more able to burn anything and offer cleaner, less maintenance, and lighter solutions.

during last World War, Phillips had made a Sterling engine based generator. very very quiet and also could burn anytype liquid fuel. Have not seen any recent efficient generators. However a few months ago , Toyota Global had posted that hybrid systems vehicles were used to provide standby utility power with modification of their 3 Kw hybrid systems! I am hoping they can provide this mod to the PRIUS as an aftermarket modification.

What about battery swapping? Won't swapping be a better way than looking out for charging stations?

This infographic says that battery swapping will be seen in future Tesla vehicles https://www.autoloansolutions.ca/ele...re-the-future/.

Will we be able to see it in any upcoming models?
