Charger Types

How fast will it charge

In a domestic setting you will generally have a choice of two charge rate options:

16A (3.6kW) Approx 8 hour charge*
32A (7.2kW) Approx 4 hour charge*

To future proof your home, a 32A charger is recommended and will in no way harm your 3.3kW vehicle as the car will only charge at a rate that is mutually agreed upon by the car and the charger.

*Dependent on vehicle type.

Universal Mennekes IEC62196-2

A Type 2 Socket will give you flexibility going forward as this is a universal chargerpoint that will work with all past, present and future Electric Vehicles.
A Type 2 connector is also known as a Mennekes connector or IEC62196-2.

A Type 2 connector looks to become the European standard for all vehicles manufactured within Europe.
Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Renault, Tesla, Volvo & VW are the current crop of EV Manufacturers.

It is commonly believed that all Electric Vehicles sold within Europe will eventually have a Type 2 connector.

If choosing this option, you may need to purchase a separate Mode 3 Charge Cable to use with the chargepoint. don’t assume that this is an extra cost in addition to a tethered charger as this is the same cable you will need to be able to charge at other level 2 public chargers such as supermarkets, car parks, work, etc.

US / Far Eastern J1772

A Type 1 Tethered chargepoint is a perfect solution for an owner of a non European manufactured Electric Vehicle.

GM / Vauxhall, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Kia, Toyota as well as some earlier vehicles.

Many customers will choose a Tethered option for convenience as they then do not need to remove and replace a separate charge cable from the vehicle every time they want to charge. However others have suggested that they look more cluttered when not in use.

Customer Reviews

After the purchase of a Mistsubishi Outlander PHEV, I contacted ChargedEV to install a second external 32A-ready EV chargepoint on my garage.

They replied immediately with a very comprehensive and intelligent list of questions about the installation, including a request for various pictures.

This ensured that when he subsequently came to install the product, there were no unpleasant surprises.

Their communication was excellent and when the installer was running late on the installation day he called to let me know.

The fitting was done quickly and efficiently, using high quality components, and has worked flawlessly ever since.

I would have no hesitation in recommending ChargedEV to other EV drivers, and indeed already have!

I contacted ChargedEV to install an electric car charging station just after ordering my new Nissan Leaf.

Although the car wasn’t due for a few weeks, they managed to install my charger the very next weekend, within 3 days of our first phone call.

The installation was fast and smooth and everything was explained to me by Mark.

I was entirely satisfied and would recommend their services to anyone, in fact I have recommended them to several new EV drivers already.

I recently bought a Peugeot Ion electric car and decided to get two Charge Points fitted at both parent’s houses so that I would then have no worries with range of the car and enables me to travel further. This is proving to be a great success. It’s already saved me nearly £500 in petrol in just 4 months!

ChargedEV installed both units quickly and efficiently we are delighted with the charge points and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone using an electric car, the installation went without a hitch and could not have been easier.

ChargedEV just installed a 32A charger for our BMW i3 on an outbuilding (on the recommendation of my brother). I feel it’s worth giving Mark a glowing review of my own, because he does stand out from other installers I’ve met. Without any oversight he did a lovely tidy installation, positioning everything neatly and routing the cables intelligently (to avoid damaging our mouse-sealed outbuilding). He also had the experience and acumen to know that we could have the charger on the outbuilding and not via an ugly armoured cable snaking around our cottage. Thanks Mark and ChargedEV… highly recommended!
