Posted by Harrison Thomas on 6th Jul 2023

We had such a great time at the Installer Show last week! It was a fantastic opportunity for us to connect with people who are curious about embracing electric vehicles and discovering the world of sustainable transportation.

During the event, we noticed a recurring theme: many people had lingering doubts and questions regarding charging their EVs at home. We are passionate about sustainable practices and transportation, which is why we provide affordable and efficient charging solutions, and so we want to set the record straight and address these concerns head-on.

We’ll unravel the answers behind a few popular questions that were asked at the Installer Show, leaving you with accurate information about EV home chargers - let's dive in!

Question #1: "Is buying an EV home charger complicated and expensive?"

Fact: At evec, we pride ourselves in providing the market's most affordable charger. Our extensive network of evec-approved installers guarantees a hassle-free installation process. Also, our committed customer service team is always available to offer support and address any inquiries you may have at any time.

Question #2: "Does charging an EV at home take forever?"

Fact: Charging an EV at home is not a time-consuming process whatsoever. Modern EV home chargers can charge your vehicle at an impressive pace. Our VEC01 charger , for example, is specifically designed to provide efficient and speedy charging for EVs. With an output of 7.4kW, it delivers a high level of power to your vehicle's battery, significantly reducing charging times. With the average EV having a battery size of 40kWh, you could charge your car from 0-100% in just 6 hours.

Question #3: "Is charging at home expensive?"

EVs that are charged at home can take advantage of lower electricity demand overnight and enjoy more affordable rates. This allows you to take advantage of off-peak electricity prices while ensuring that your vehicle is ready for your daily commute or any other driving needs.

Question #4: "Are EV home chargers compatible with all EV models?"

Fact: We were often asked if home chargers are only compatible with specific EV models or brands. Actually, most EV home chargers are designed to be compatible with a wide range of EVs, regardless of the manufacturer or model.

When choosing an EV home charger, it's important to keep a few things in mind to make the process simple and easy. At evec, we make it effortless for you by offering a range of chargers that work with both type 1 and type 2 EV models.
