Home Charging Solutions
Many homeowners find that their car’s portable EV charger, which plugs into a conventional three-pin power outlet, is often too slow. An increasing number of EV owners demand the ability to charge their vehicle more quickly. They may use most of the energy in their EV every day, which can take longer to recharge than overnight, or they simply don’t want to be caught off guard with a low battery when they need to get somewhere quickly.
The good news is that there are methods for charging your electric car at home that will allow you to securely charge your car’s battery in less time. All you need is someone with the knowledge and abilities to examine your home’s electrical system, discuss your EV charging requirements, offer appropriate options, and install the one you choose. These options are often more affordable than may be expected.
Commercial Charging Solutions
The benefits of installing commercial electric vehicle charging stations are being recognized by an increasing number of New Zealand enterprises. Some companies are converting their fleets to electric vehicles, while others are using clever user-pays charging stations to increase staff retention and attract new consumers.
Most electric vehicle owners have a portable slow charger that came with their vehicle. It normally comes with a conventional 3-pin plug and a maximum power output of 2.4 kilowatts (2.4kW). A ‘back-up AC charger’ or a ‘Mode 2 charger’ is what this is known as. Depending on how low the battery was to begin with and the battery’s overall capacity or size, it can take anywhere from 6 to 24 hours to fully charge the car’s battery.
We recommend specialized Mode 3 AC charging stations for commercial usage. These normally have a power rating of 7.4kW (single phase) or 22kW (three phase). A ‘rapid AC EV charger’ is what they’re called. Most households have a single-phase connection to the street, although commercial buildings and apartment complexes usually have three phase electric vehicle charging.
