EV Car Charger Installations
The installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure is a critical step in the adoption of electric vehicles, as a whole. An EV can absolutely be plugged into a regular mains socket, but should only be done temporarily, due to differentiation of voltage suitability. The easiest way to mount an EV charger is through a ‘wall box’ which can be installed on an existing wall, and connected to the pre-existing wiring. It is also possible to mount the EV charger on a post, this allows for greater freedom of placement.

EV Car Charger Installations FAQ
How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle at home?
The length of time it takes to charge your EV depends on its battery, and the EV charger speed. On average it will take a 40kWh battery about four and a half hours to fully charge, and a 77kWh battery just under nine hours to charge.
What is preconditioning?
While the EV is plugged into your home, it can warm up the interior of your EV, which eradicates the need to use further energy when the vehicle is operational.
What work is required on my home to install an EV charger?
A cable runs through an isolator switch, and from that switch, the cable routes directly into your fuse board and from there, your charger should be live. We will have to drill maybe two small holes in your wall, which will be neatly utilised to connect your EV charging point.
