An EV charger is what you are going to use as a charge point to charge your electric vehicles. Both electric cars and hybrid vehicles make use of an EV charger to maintain a fully charge battery.
At its most basic function, a car charger pulls a current to charge your car directly from either a 240v outlet in your home or it is hardwired directly to your home grid, delivering the compatible voltage of electricity to your electric vehicle. And just like most other devices, you charge your electric car by simply putting the plug directly into your wall socket to charge.
Electric car charging is fast becoming the new normal as a way of life and will soon be the standard when owning an electric car. Therefore, understanding the different levels of electric vehicle charging is an important point.
There is a difference between each charging level, and the rule of thumb is that; the higher the power output, the faster your electric car is going to charge. Now let’s talk about the range of charge options that are available to you.
A level 1 charger is the slowest charger available today and takes roughly 24hrs to fully charge a 60kWh battery. A level 1 charger ranges between 2.6kW and 3.6kW, depending on whether you are using a 3-pin plug socket, producing the higher 3.6kW or not. With the 3-pin plug socket, you are adding about 8 miles of driving distance per hour.
A level 2 charger can either be tethered or untethered, and its maximum power is dictated by the circuit. Level 2 does cover a possible wider power range of your house, catering for single-phase up to 7.4kW and for 3-phase power up to 11kW. However, to achieve these speeds at home, you are going to need a smart home charger, which we can install.
Using AC (Alternating Current), the maximum energy level for your level 2 is going to be 22kW. While using DC (Direct Current), your level 2 power can reach up to 43kW.
Level 3 is mainly found in public charging point areas because they need to be directly connected to the grid, which allows for more rapid charging. Unfortunately, the power supply in your home is not enough to support a level 3 charging point. Level 3 chargers are most commonly found at charging hubs, some car parks and other motorway services.
A tethered EV charger is an all-in-one home charger installation that has the cable wired into it. It is a simple and effective charging solution. Charging is easy and you simply have to pull the cable out of the charging point and plug it into your electric car.
Untethered charging cables are just that, cables. They are mobile and easy to carry around with you. Yes, there is an extra step when it comes time to charge your vehicle’s battery, but EV drivers do not seem to mind the extra plug. Not all electric car charging cables are the same, so be sure that you find the right connection or carry a second, alternate cable with you just in case. It may make things a little more convenient.
When thinking about your purchase of an electric car, you have to begin to consider that a home charging solution is an essential one. Sadly the UK government grant for the installation of a charging unit has expired for renters and homeowners, so to better understand the costs involved, keep reading.
Unfortunately, the costs of installing a home car charging station are not one fixed price, and depending on exactly what you are looking for, your installation overheads when you purchase are going to vary.
Now, typically for a standard 7kW home rapid charger, you are going to look at paying around £500 – £1,000 for a standard installation while paying roughly the same for the charger itself.
A more advanced installation option, along with the appropriate charging unit and cable, one that makes use of the intelligent octopus app, for example, may range between £1,000 – £1,800. With this kind of smart charging installation, you can easily optimise your charging. The intelligent octopus app is able to save you money, charging your electric car during the greenest hours using your wi-fi. Now that is smart charging.
