CAR CHARGERS 

Car Charger installation has grown rapidly in the past few years, and lots have manufacturers have been investing in Research and Development to bring out the best Car Charger. 

The need for Electric Vehicle Chargers will only increase to the lead up of the UK banning the sale of Petrol & Diesel cars by 2035

The regulations overseeing Car Charger installations changed very quickly early on to ensure that end users were fully protected against the risk of electric shock. The regulations and technology has been stable for some time now to rest assured that investing in a car charger you wont have to update it in 6 months time. 

Initially the use of Earth Spikes were mandatory which brings its own risks of hitting other services in the ground which cannot be seen, with this in mind manufacturers worked hard to bring out Car Chargers that have safety features built in eliminating the need for Earth Spikes. 

There are many Makes and Models of Car Chargers on the market depending on your taste, budget and use. Some Car Chargers come in Single of Three Phase giving you a maximum of 22KW. Other have features like whole home monitoring, or Solar integration where the Car Charger can charge your vehicle solely from the Sun, allowing you to travel on pure Green energy!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHARGE AN ELECTRIC CAR/ VEHICLE?

The time it takes to charge an electric vehicle is dependant on quite a few factors, like: 

- Battery temperature

- Current charge

- Battery size

- Size of charging cable

- Size of Charger 

- Vehicle charge settings 

But you don't want to know all that, so let's take a Tesla Model Y as an example. This has a battery capacity of 75 kWh. Lets assume the battery is flat, we shall compare the different chargers and speed it takes to charge: 

Granny Charger (Socket outlet) - 36 Hours or 8 miles per hour

3.6kW Charger - 22 Hours or 13 miles per hour

7.2kW Charger - 12 Hours or 25 miles per hour 

22kW - 8 Hours or 40 miles per hour
