If you own an electric vehicle, then probably one of your biggest concerns is its charging. How can I charge it at home? When I'm out and the battery dies, where I charge it up? How can I find the public charging points? These questions can overwhelm you, but in reality, it is not that difficult at all. With a 220 Volt EV Charger, you can plug your car at home and charge it up. Once you know it, you realize how simple and convenient it is to recharge your car instead of driving to a service station.
Research conducted has shown that 90-95% of electric vehicle owners charge at home. They do it either from the domestic power socket or using a specialist car charging point.
There is nothing wrong with charging from a domestic power socket if you have borrowed it from a friend or when staying at a hotel. Generally, most homes have 220-240 volts, so you can easily charge your car from a domestic power socket. The total time it takes will be around 6 to 9 hours, and it depends on which car you drive.
No matter if you charge your car at work or charge it at home overnight, a 6 to 9-hour charge is ideal. All you have to do is plug it in and leave the car for recharging and in the morning all ready to use it.
Most electric vehicle manufacturers recommend that you should avoid using a domestic power socket for daily charging. It is because there is a constant high AMP drain, and constant charging from a power socket can result in overheating. There have been cases reported of the sockets burned with overheating because of regular use.
Moreover, for regular charging at home, it is suggested that an electric vehicle charging point is installed at your home. These can be installed outside the house by professional electricians swiftly. The connection they provide is waterproof and can work at a higher ampage. This, in turn, reduces the amount of time it takes to charge your car.
Further, you can charge your car at home at 220-240 volts, which is typically 16 amps or 32 amps. A 16 amp charging point will get an electric car charge from flat to full in 6 hours. On the other hand, a 32 amp charging point can charge an EV from flat to full in 3½ hours.
Before you purchase an electric charging station, you need to know where you are going to park your car. You need to find the ideal location to install this piece of equipment. Once you find the location, then measure the distance between the charging port of the car and the wall where you will hang the EVSE. Usually, cables run from about 15 to 25 feet. Further, you need to make sure that your cord can easily reach where it needs to go. Also, think about its length for a second plug-in car either in our driveway or garage.
Our professional installers will assess the entire location. They might need to run just a few feet of conduit or dozens of feet. PrimecomTech offers a complete EV Charging system installation & integration.>
