Domestic home and Commercial EV Charging Points

Domestic EV Charging Points

Most homes across the UK are on a single phase electricity supply average of 80 to 100 Amps.

What is single phase?

Single phase is simply one live cable supply to the property.

Can a car be charged from a standard three pin plug socket?

YES, but there is a downside to using this method. The upside is you are not paying out for bespoke wall mounted EV car charging point. Most car dealerships offer you an EV car charging point if you are buying a new electric car most dealerships will offer to install a home charging point. Check what grants are available at the time of the changing from a fossil fuel driven car or van to an electric one.

Downside of Single Phase

Be advised that charging an electric automobile with a regular three-pin outlet will result in higher costs and a longer charging time. Using a three-pin plug, a single-phase EV car charge could take longer than 20 to 24 hours.

Purchasing a wall-mounted EV car charging station is encouraged. One way to lower the cost of charging an electric car or van is to invest in a high-quality single-phase automobile charging point that can be mounted on a wall or a post. When compared to a typical three-pin connector, the average charging time from a high-quality car charging point that has been fitted appropriately can be halved.

Depending on the make and model, an 8-to-12-hour charge might take an average of that long. Installing a high-quality EV car charging station is generally advised since it will save you money in the long run.

Commercial EV Charging Points

Fast charging EV car outlets with three phases. Fast charging EV outlets are primarily found in gas stations, supermarkets, retail centres, and hotels—basically, any location where there is a higher demand for electricity than in typical households.

Additionally, some larger homes and farms will have three phase supplies. Three live wires leading to the property provide a much greater Amp supply with a three-phase supply, enabling the installation of an EV point those charges quickly. Since it’s quicker, charging for this will also be less expensive.

Depending on the make and model, charging an EV car at a rapid EV charging station should take between 30 and 2 hours to finish.

To lower the cost of charging overnight, it is sense to consider moving to a renewable energy source that might provide an off-peak rate. A kWh typically costs between 16 and 17p. The off-peck tariff may bring this down to just 6-7p.

What is ZAPPI?

Introduction in Smarter Charging

There are various ways that you can charge an electric car. The most popular way is to charge at home, where you can do it at your own pace and still have a comfortable charge during the times you are not using the car. Of course, having solar or wind power makes electric charging much more cost-effective. You are unable to control how much of your own electrical production is used while using standard chargers. And in that regard, the intelligent ZAPPI charger excels. By applying as much of its own use and removing as little as possible from the grid, the ZAPPI charges in an eco-friendly and greener manner. You will be driving more affordably and cleanly in this method.

You can now determine how quickly your car needs to be recharged, and you can maximise the amount of electricity you produce yourself with the ZAPPI charger. There are three distinct programmes to select from.

  1.  Fully charged in ECO + mode (without accessing the net), which pauses charging if internal production is simply too low (for example in clouds). You can determine the minimum percentage of green loading.
  2. Using the ECO mode, which loads in smart mode while consuming the least amount of internal energy. The grid is replenished as soon as the individual production falls too low. Don’t ever load less than 1.4 kW.
  3. Quick charging at full power, just like you would with any other charger. In addition, if internal output is insufficient, there is also the option of being refuelled by the grid. The maximum capacity is 7kW; however, this varies based on the type of connection (16A or 32A) and your car.

ZAPPI is also a real smart charger, on several fronts:
