Dedicated EV charging points at home mean much faster charging than a normal 3-pin plug – usually about 2-3 times quicker. This is important for two main reasons:
- Your car will be ready for when you next need to use it – to fully charge a standard EV battery on a 3-pin plug can take on average 10-12 hours, whereas with an EV Charger it can take 4-5 hours.
- With our smart chargers, if you have a two-rate meter, you can set your home charger to charge overnight when your home energy rate is cheapest. However, with Home & Smart EV, you don’t need a special meter to take advantage of cheap overnight charging, simply sign up to any one of our home tariffs once you have brought your home charger from us and you can benefit from charging your EV with 8,000 miles for only £80.
