EV Charger FAQ’s

Welcome to our EV Charger FAQ’s page, your ultimate resource for all things related to electric vehicle charging! Whether you’re a new EV owner, considering making the switch, or simply curious about the technology, this FAQ page is designed to provide answers to the most common questions about EV chargers. From understanding different charger types and installation requirements to maximizing charging efficiency and managing costs, we’ve got you covered.

Not sure about EV Charger types?

EV chargers come in several types, including Level 1 (120-volt AC), Level 2 (240-volt AC), and DC fast chargers. Level 1 chargers are typically used with standard household outlets and provide the slowest charging speed, while Level 2 chargers offer faster charging and are commonly installed in homes and public charging stations. DC fast chargers provide the fastest charging speeds and are often found along highways and in commercial settings. We are certified installers for many of the leading brands such as Myenergi, GivEnergy, Ohme and Rolec. Our team of experts will discuss your needs and help you decide which charger is the right one for you.

How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?

Charging time varies depending on factors such as the vehicle’s battery capacity, charger type, and charging rate. Level 1 chargers can take several hours to fully charge a vehicle, while Level 2 chargers can charge most EVs overnight. DC fast chargers can provide a significant charge in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the vehicle.

What is the cost of charging an electric vehicle?

The cost of charging an electric vehicle depends on factors such as electricity rates, charger type, charging speed, and vehicle efficiency. In general, charging an EV at home is typically cheaper than a fuel vehicle. Also if you have solar PV you can use your self generated electricity to power your vehicle!
