Electric Vehicle Charger FAQ

What is an EV Charger, and How Does it Work?

An EV charger, or an electric vehicle charger, is a power supply used to recharge electric vehicles. They convert the alternating current (AC) from your power source to the direct current (DC) needed to charge the batteries.

The charging process is managed by an in-built charger within your EV, which controls the amount of electricity drawn. 

This ensures your battery is charged optimally, preventing damage and preserving its lifespan.

Learn more in our guide to what an EV charger is.

Are All EV Chargers the Same?

The short answer is no. Different chargers have varying power outputs, which can significantly affect how quickly your EV gets charged.

There are mainly three levels of EV charging available, each with its own set of capabilities.

  • Level 1 chargers are the most basic charging option and come standard with most EVs. They can be used with a standard 120-volt household outlet, making them quite convenient. They are sometimes referred to as slow chargers and have speeds of up to 6kW AC. They're easy to set up but offer about 4 to 6 miles of range per hour of charging.
  • Level 2 chargers require a 240-volt outlet, similar to what you’d use for a heavy-duty appliance like a dryer. These are faster than Level 1 chargers and charge at speeds between 7kW to 22kW. Level 2 chargers or fast chargers are often found in public charging stations or can be installed at home. They can provide about 20 to 40 miles of range per hour. All of our EV chargers are level 2 chargers at 7.4kW.
  • Level 3 chargers, also known as DC fast chargers, provide rapid charging speeds, capable of getting your battery from 0 to 80 per cent in roughly 30 minutes. They can provide several hundred miles of range in that time and are most commonly found in public charging networks.

Apart from the charging level, the type of connector your EV uses can also differ. 

Most EVs feature either a Type 1 or Type 2 connector, but it’s not one-size-fits-all. 

Some advanced EV chargers come equipped with smart technology, allowing for features like remote monitoring and scheduled charging. 

All of our EV chargers have full smart functionality, provide 7.4kw of output, and use Type 2 sockets with auto lock. 

You can learn more about EV charger types by following the link to read our guide.

Can I Install an EV Charger at Home?

Yes, you can install an EV charging point at home. 

However, you’ll need off-road parking and an easily accessible place to install it, like your driveway or garage.

You’ll need a qualified electrician to install your EV charger to ensure it's done safely and meets the relevant regulations.

Can You Have Two EV Chargers at Home?

Yes, you can install two EV chargers at home.

However, multiple EV chargers will pull a lot of power and can reduce the charging speed of each.

How Fast Are EV Chargers?

The speed at which an EV charger can charge your vehicle depends on the type of charger you get. 

A 150kW rapid charging station can take 30 minutes to charge a 60kWh battery. 

22Kw can take 3 hours, and 7kW can take 8 hours.

How Long Does an EV Charger Last?

On average, a well-maintained EV charger can last between 5 to 10 years, depending on several factors, including usage and exposure to elements. 

Regular usage and exposure to harsh weather conditions may increase wear and tear.

To increase your EV charger lifespan, we recommend:

  • Regular Inspections: Check for any physical damage or wear and tear.
  • Software Updates: Keep the charger's software up-to-date.
  • Cleanliness: Keep the charging port and cable clean to ensure a good connection.

What’s the EV Charger Grant?

You might be able to save money on EV chargers through the EV Charger Grant.

 The EV Charger Grant, formerly known as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), is a government initiative designed to support the adoption of electric vehicles. 

Through this scheme, you can receive funding towards the installation of a home charging point.

To qualify, you must:

  • Own, lease, or have ordered a qualifying electric vehicle
  • Have off-street parking
  • Install an OLEV-approved charge point
  • Use an OLEV-approved installer

The grant can cover up to 75% of the total installation cost, capped at £350. 

This is a significant incentive that can make the transition to an electric vehicle more achievable on your budget.

What’s a Tethered EV Charger?

Many of our electric vehicle chargers are tethered. But what does this mean?

A tethered EV charger is an EV charger that comes with a built-in cable to connect directly to your car. 

Unlike an untethered charger, which requires you to provide your own charging cable, a tethered charger offers convenience through its fixed cable, so you always have the right connector on hand.

The main benefits of a tethered EV charger are:

  • Ease of use: There’s no need to unpack and pack a separate cable every time you charge.
  • Speed: These chargers often support faster charging speeds, getting your EV back on the road quickly.
  • Security: The fixed cable means there's one less piece of kit that could be lost or stolen.

However, it’s important to remember that tethered chargers are vehicle-specific. 

In other words, the cable's connector must match your EV’s charging port. 

Our EV chargers all have type 2 connectors, so keep this in mind when buying.

Learn more in our guide to tethered vs untethered EV chargers.

What Size Cable for Electric Car Charger UK?

Typically, the size of the cable depends on the charging current and the distance from your electricity meter to the EV charger.

The standard size for a domestic EV charger is a 6mm² Twin and Earth cable, suitable for most home installations and capable of handling up to 32 Amps of current, equating to a 7kW charger.
