Electric Vehicle Unit Home Installation

Charging from a standard plug at home takes longer and is not considered safe. Estimates reveal that on average over 80% of all charging activities are carried out at home. It is imperative to have a electrical vehicle charging unit installed at home for convenience and safety.

Most electric car manufacturers recommend that you do not use a standard 13 amp socket for charging your electric car at home for safety reasons. For example, your electric vehicle is equivalent to charging an electric oven, which is a much larger electric load in comparison to your toaster, which can be charged in any standard plug in your house.

Charging at Work

As the sales of Electric Cars is increasing, the installation of Electric Vehicle Charging units at work are increasing too. On average, daily commutes to work are under twenty miles, therefore the idea of purchasing an electric car is becoming more cost effective to a business’s work force. Get the convenience of arriving at work, connecting your vehicle to a unit to charge for the day, then drive home fully charged!

Installation of an Electric Vehicle Charging unit is generally straightforward, and can be used by all staff which is a very cost effective solution for the business and staff combined.

Type 2 – Other vehicles come with IEC62196-2 connector.


Domestically, there is mainly a choice of two models :

Type 1 – 16amp

Type 2 – 32amp
