Get a Wallbox Charger

Untethered: No attached charging lead. More hassle every time you want to plugin, but allows you to swap out the lead - such as from Type 1 to Type 2. Some consider it future-proofing.

Tethered: The charging unit has a power lead attached to it. It’s convenient as it means you can just pull up and plug in, as opposed to retrieving your car’s charging lead from the boot.

Are all electric car chargers the same?

These are two different kinds of connectors for charging an electric car at home (there are more for public charging). And several different speed (power) options.

Starting with the connector, your electric car will be able to take either a Type 1 or Type 2 connector. The difference is the shape of the plug, it does not affect the rate at which it can charge your car.

In recent years, cars with a type 2 charging socket are much more common. Make sure you know which type of connector your car is compatible with before ordering your wallbox. Seek confirmation from Electric car charger installation cost Newport.

What wattage wall charger should I buy?

This is maybe the most essential piece. There is no single power alternative. Your average decision is up to 7.4kW for a common UK home.

To get a good deal on the charger, you could pick a lower power rate, (for example, 3.6kW). In spite of the fact that it will take more time to charge your vehicle.

It is conceivable to have a significantly quicker charger, up to 22kW. If your vehicle is fit for accepting a charge this way (and many are not) it will chop down charging rates once more.

The main issue is that speedier charging rates require a three-stage connection, which you might not have in your home. Seek electric car charging point installer Newport.

Can you speed up charging? What's the difference between a single phase and a three-phase supply

Your electricity is supplied through either:
- a single phase network that, simply put, has one live wire
- or a three-phase network that has three live wires. You can connect to all three for a faster power supply.

Fortunately, most of the UK is served by a three-phase network.

The terrible news is that most UK abodes are appended to just one of those three live wires. So indeed, most homes have a solitary stage association, in spite of it being a three-stage arrange.

Most homes have a single-phase connection, in spite of it being a three-phase network.

How to check if you have a three-phase connection?

According to UK Power Networks (the organisation that maintains our electricity networks), the way to check your own connection is to look at your fuse box.

- One 100 amp fuse means you have a single-phase connection
- Three such fuses means a three-phase connection.

Electric Car Charging Point Installer Newport

As the three-phase network is broad over the UK, it opens up the probability of updating your single-phase connection to a three-phase connection. Consider Smart home charging points Newport too.

In the event that you need a higher rate of power, see whether it's possible to update by talking to your power provider.
