Qmerit Makes Home EV Charging Easy!

Overnight off-peak home charging in most cases can provide all the charge you need, helping to remove any range anxiety.

You can charge using a regular domestic three-pin socket, but a dedicated home EV charger is a much better – and faster – option.

Dedicated EV home chargers typically deliver around 7kW of power. In contrast, most vehicle manufacturers limit the current drawn from a standard domestic 3 pin socket to 10A or less, which equates to a maximum of 2.3kW.

A 7kW home charger therefore delivers approximately three times as much power and is approximately three times as fast as using a domestic socket, in addition, comes with built in safety features as standard.

An estimated 80 percent of electric car charging takes place at home.

Saying goodbye to petrol stations is a key benefit of EV ownership, but you could also minimise the number of times you visit a public charging station. Simply arrive home in your EV, plug it in and wake up to a fully charged battery in the morning.

Using a home charger is the cheapest, most convenient and safest way to charge an Electric Vehicle (EV), which is why it’s the default choice for many electric car owners.

Below are five things you need to know about EV charging.

1

Main types of home chargepoints?

There are 2 main types of charge-points, tethered or untethered, also known as socketed or unsocketed.  A tethered charge point comes as standard with a 5m cable, most manufacturers offer a 6m/7m or 10m option.  Untethered charge points have a universal socket allowing use of you own cable.

2

How much does it cost?

Charging at home is far the lowest cost option, how low will depend on your electricity tariff.  All dedicated EVCP’s come smart functionality enabled as standard, meaning they will automatically default to off-peak charging.

3

Can I use me home 3 pin plug socket?

Whilst it’s possible to use a domestic 3 pin plug socket, it’s definitely not recommended, this method lacks the standard safety features of a dedicated charge-point and is up to 3 times slower.

4

What are the built-in safety measures?

Dedicated home charge-point come with DC Leakage protection, appropriate RCD protection, suitable earth solution and over/under voltage protection, to ensure safe, reliable operation.

5

How long does it take?

A dedicated home charge-point can supply up to 25/30 miles of range per hour, charging safely overnight it will ensure your vehicle’s ready when you need it.

Tethered or Untethered EV Chargers

With an estimated 80% of electric vehicle charging taking place at home, it’s important to make sure you choose the right charger for you and your vehicle. The main difference between tethered and untethered EV chargers is the charging cable.

Tethered (TYPE 2) 

Most electric car owners choose to buy tethered chargers, and they’re the most common type of home EV charger that you’ll see. 

A tethered home charger for an EV has a cable attached for you to plug into the car. 

Tethered EV chargers are convenient as you simply uncoil the attached cable and plug it into your vehicle. 


Untethered (Universal) 

Untethered charge points also known as socketed, are universal allowing for use of your own cables.

Great when you have a requirement for type 2 and type 1 charging, or if you simply prefer the neater look to the install with out coiled cable.
