What is an EV charger and how does it work?

An EV charger is a device that supplies electricity to charge electric vehicles (EVs). It connects to the vehicle’s charging port and transfers power to the EV’s battery. This charging process allows EV owners to replenish their vehicle’s battery and extend its driving range.

What types of EV chargers are available in the UK?

There are three main types of EV chargers commonly found in the UK:

•     Slow chargers (AC): These are typically rated at 3-6 kW and are suitable for overnight charging at home. Slow chargers are a basic option when you need some extra miles.

•     Fast chargers (AC/DC): These chargers range from 7-22 kW and can charge an EV in as little as a few hours. 7kW chargers are the most suitable for home charging.

•     Rapid chargers (DC): Rapid chargers can provide a high-powered charge of 50 kW or more, enabling quick charging in as little as 30 minutes.

How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?

The charging time for an EV depends on several factors, including the charger’s power rating, the vehicle’s battery capacity, and the charging speed supported by the EV. As a general guideline, slow chargers may take 6-12 hours, while fast chargers can provide a full charge in 3-6 hours. Rapid chargers offer fast charging options that can reach 80% charge in 30 minutes or less.

Can I install an EV charger at my home?

Yes, you can install an EV charger at your home. It’s recommended to consult a qualified electrician or EV charging specialist such as Deltic Solutions who can assess your electrical system and provide guidance on the charger’s installation, capacity, and any necessary upgrades.

Are there public EV charging stations in the UK?

Yes, the UK has an increasing number of public EV charging stations across the country. These can be found in various locations such as shopping centres, car parks, and roadside service areas. Public charging stations often offer different charging speeds, and some require payment or membership.

How much does it cost to charge an electric vehicle?

The cost of charging an electric vehicle depends on factors like your electricity tariff, charging speed, and vehicle efficiency. It’s advisable to check with your energy provider for specific rates and tariffs related to EV charging. In some cases, public charging stations may have their own pricing structure.
