Reasons to Invest

Faster Charging

EV chargers are always quicker and safer than using a 3-pin plug.

For example, the Tesla Y – the best selling electric car in the UK in 2022 – takes 36 hours to fully charge on a 3-pin plug, but only 12 hours on a 7.4 kW charger.

3x faster

The speed of an EV charger is determined by its power output measured in kilowatts (kW). The most common charger is 7.4 kW.

EVs also have a maximum charging rate between 7 kW and 22 kW. However only a few models can charge at a 22 kW rate, with most limited to 11 kW or less.

Fast Faster Charging

To charge above 7.4 kW you can get 22 kW chargers, but these require a 3-phase supply to work.

Many business premises have a 3-phase supply, but it is unusual for homes.

Rapid Charging

EVs can be charged even faster at so-called “rapid” rates of 50 kW or higher. But these are DC charging rates rather than AC.

The National Grid is only AC.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, all EV chargers we install have a mobile app to manage and configure the charger.

Most EV chargers are compatible with any electric vehicle regardless of make or model.

All new EVs since 2014 and most older models use the Type 2 connection. If your car does use the Type 1 connector a converter/adapter can be bought.
