Home charging station
Home charging stations for your car
Electric vehicles are already an integral part of the automotive world, with many people using electric vehicles in their daily commute. However, although electric vehicles are becoming more popular, the number of public charging stations is still not that great, so having an electric charging station at home is a must.
In Ukraine, more than 90% of electric vehicle owners charge their electric vehicles at home. This is convenient because you do not have to spend time on the road to the charging station. When you get home, leave your EV connected to the network until the morning. A fully charged battery usually lasts 2-3 days. Electric cars can be charged at home from a regular Euro socket, but this process takes a long time.
Another option is a three-phase socket, which can be installed in a country house or office. Charging from a three-phase outlet is much faster. This makes charging easier, but it also saves you money as you can use cheap electricity rates at night. You can charge at night with AC power (which is safer for electric vehicles).
Home charging stations are devices that will reduce the time it takes to charge an electric car battery compared to charging directly from a wall outlet. For example, it can take up to 20 hours to charge a fully discharged car from a conventional outlet, but this can be reduced to 8-10 hours with a dedicated home charging station. Therefore, we suggest buying one of the charging stations shown above. Each one is small and easy to use.
Where to place the charging station
Home charging stations for electric vehicles are suitable for installation in garages, parking lots, and private homes.
The decision to install a charging station in your home should consider several characteristics, such as plug length, compatible outlets, and charging speed.
However, to avoid additional work, it is necessary to take into account the following nuances for the joint installation of an electric charging station for the home:
- The ability of the electrical system to cope with additional energy consumption;
- Careful consideration of the organization of the location of the charging station for the electric vehicle;
- The required capacity of the station;
- Necessary electric charger kit to be able to charge electric vehicles with different charging sockets and charging types;
- and other nuances.
Why you should buy a home charging station for electric vehicles
This section will focus on the benefits of home electric vehicle charging stations over conventional three-phase AC outlets.
The main advantage for the owner of such a station is reducing the car battery charging time. In addition, having such a system in your home means you can avoid traveling "into the city" looking for public charging points.
Charge your car at your convenience. For example, the price of electricity at night is lower than during the day. Therefore, you can leave your car charged overnight. To do this, select a system with a delayed start function. The battery will start charging at the time you selected.
If your home electric car charger has a built-in meter, you will be able to calculate your vehicle maintenance costs with a high degree of accuracy.
