Why have an electric car charging point at your Croydon home?
Having a home electric car charging point is convenient. It saves needing to find a public EV charger or needing to use one of the ones at work. You don’t actually need a charging point at home, you can charge from a standard 13 amp wall socket, however, this is really slow. Generally, you will need 24 hours to fully charge your electric car, depending on the battery capacity. If you want to charge your car overnight, a dedicated charging point is essential.
Having a dedicated car charging point is also potentially safer. Charging from a socket means that there will be a lead trailing on the floor between the socket and your car. This is a trip hazard. It can lead to the plug being ripped out of the socket, damaging the cable, plug and socket at the same time.
The plug is captive in the charging point socket, so it will not be ripped out if someone does catch it with their foot or some other object like a chair. As an experienced car charging point installer, we will site your charging point in the place that minimises the chance of anyone tripping over the lead.
What car charging installation is best?
This is largely down to personal preference and budget. The larger the car charging point rating, the faster your car will charge. The charger can be tethered or untethered, in other words, with a built-in cable specific to your vehicle or not. Untethered means you use the charging cable that comes with the car. They both have their advantages and disadvantages – some people prefer the smaller size of an untethered charger, whilst others prefer to leave the charging lead in the boot, just pick up the lead when you get home and plug it into the car.
