Investing in an electric vehicle is a smart move. Whether you’re wanting to beat the rising fuel costs, do your bit towards sustainability, or make the most of the Government’s long-awaited tax cuts on EVs, there’s never been a better time to make the switch to electric.
And with an electric vehicle comes the bonus of being able to skip the servo queues and charge up at home!
Every EV owner needs a solid, reliable home charging station. That’s why so many Australians choose Plusrite for all of their home charging needs. Here, we’ll take a look at the high quality home electric chargers at Plusrite and determine which model is best suited to your needs.
What to look for in a home electric charger
But first, let’s discuss what you should be looking forward in your EV home charging station. It’s not as simple as picking one that looks the best, has the longest cord, or even has the right connection to your car; while these are important, there are other factors to look out for as well.
Choosing the right power output of your EV home charger is super important, as this influences the speed at which your car battery recharges. On a Tesla Model S, for example, a 7kW charger can recharge from empty to full in 11-15 hours. A 22kW charger can achieve a full charge on the same vehicle in less than 6 hours.
Outdoor and indoor use appropriate
Also make sure your EV charger is suitable for the environment you intend to install it in, i.e. indoor or outdoor. Aim for a waterproof rating of IP65 – this means that the charger is water resistant, protecting it from rain and hail.
Dynamic Load Balancing
DLB (Dynamic Load Balancing) is available in home (1 Phase) or industrial (3 Phase) settings. When using your EV charger with either appliances or machinery at the same time, DLB ensures the power supply cannot be overloaded by balancing the demand on the power supply.
Models of Home Electric Chargers
Plusrite offers single-phase and three-phase EV home charger models as detailed below:
|7.4kW (maximum power), AC240 single-phase AC EV charger.
