Find A Suitable Electric Plan

The biggest drawback of owning an electric car is the increase in your electric bills. To get the most out of your charger, shop around for electric companies that offer a TOU (time-of-use) plan to residents. These plans have fluctuating costs for electricity depending on if it’s a peak hour or an off-peak hour of electricity use. With a TOU plan, you can take advantage of charging your car when the cost of electricity is at its lowest.

Know Your Needs

When buying an at-home EV charger, it’s important to know how fast of a charger you need, as the price increases the more Amp’s the charger uses. If you do a lot of driving for a living, then a faster charger will be worth the higher price. But if you primarily leave your house for work and errands during the day, then a charger that fills your car up throughout the night will be more affordable and still fit your needs.

Get An Extension Cord

Don’t limit yourself with a short charger. Whether you’re at home or on the road, an extension cable can be a welcome convenience when you need to reach a plug-in in a hard-to-reach spot. Primecom’s20-foot extension cord is sure to give you the extra length you need.

Use A Y Adapter

If your NEMA outlet is already occupied by a dryer or stove and you don’t want to have to keep unplugging the appliance to use the EV charger, consider getting aY splitter adapter. One end plugs into the NEMA outlet and the appliance and charger can both be plugged into the other end, making life with an EV charger even easier.
