Why do you need a charger at home?
Your standard household socket can provide 2.3kW of power. When the maximum power of the socket is used for a long period of time, heating of the cables accrues, which can even cause a fire.
Given that you will charge the car quite often and for long periods of time, it is advisable to avoid all existing risks as much as possible and to invest in a safe charging system with a suitable, tested and certified charging device and possibly a dynamic load balancing system.
It only remains to mention that charging one electric car will, as a minimum, consume energy equivalent to the parallel operation of 4-5 microwave ovens.
Up to 10x faster charging
Considering that with the household socket you can provide 2.3kW of charging power for your car, we can increase the available power up to 22kW with a small wall charger.
The specifics of your car must be taken into account, as most cars are currently capable of charging with 3.7 kW or 7.4 kW. It depends on the capacity of the on-board charger built into each electric car, which also determines the maximum AC charging capacity of your car.
There is 4 electric car on-board charger capacities:
- 3.7 kW charging = 1 phase, 16A
- 7.4 kW charging = 1 phase, 32A
- 11 kW charging = 3 phases, 16A
- 22 kW charging = 3 phases, 32A
