Why Use A Dedicated Home EV Charging Station?

When you opt for a weatherproof dedicated home smart EV charger point as opposed to a three-pin plug, you can charge your vehicle much faster and use it on a long-term basis. These chargers are much safer to use thanks to the in-built protection features and have been designed specifically for this function, unlike generic 3-pin plugs


What Are The Benefits Of A Dedicated Home EV Charging Station?

We strongly recommend having a dedicated home EV charging point installed by an OZEV-approved installer, as opposed to using a 3-pin plug, because:
•    It charges your car faster.
•    It has built-in safety features to make domestic EV charging safer.
•    It is suitable for long term use (it is not advised to use 3-pin charging in the long term).
•    It is weatherproof and purpose-built for long term EV charging at home.


How Do You Charge An Electric Car At Home?

In order to charge an electric car at home, you can either have a dedicated EV charging point installed where your electric car is usually parked or charge the vehicle using a standard 3-pin plug as you would with any domestic appliance.


How Long Does It Take To Charge An Electric Car At Home?

How long it takes to charge an electric car depends largely on:
•    The size of the battery.
•    The speed of the charger.


Charging using a 3-pin plug (as you would for most electric appliances at home) is much slower than having a dedicated home EV charger. Dedicated chargers also vary in terms of kilowatts and will as a result charge at different speeds.

Charging an electric car at home is very similar to charging a mobile phone, with most owners finding that doing a full charge overnight is enough to cover journeys during the day. However, day charging may be needed as and when.
You should always check the individual manuals and guides for your own vehicle and charger to understand the charge time of your battery, vehicle and charger combination.
