EV home charging

Charging at home explained

There are two different ways to recharge your electric vehicle at home - one, is by using a standard wall socket and the second is with a residential EV charging station. When you connect your EV to a normal 3-pin socket in your house to charge up, loading is slower, so fully charging even a 40 kW battery can take almost 17 hours This can be more than enough when spending some time at a remote location during a weekend away. However, by far the most convenient and fast solution is to install a home charger. The time it takes to fully charge is based on the level, or speed, of charging and how full the battery is when you start. So, what’s the best charging solution for your living situation?
