Types of Electric Vehicle Charging Point

There are 3 main types of EV Charging Point. Rapid, Fast and Slow.

Rapid or SuperChargers are mainly found at Services stations (motorways) and other public locations where superfast charging is necessary during a journey. A typical example has Telsa Super Chargers which can charge the vehicle up to 80% in just 20 minutes.

Fast Chargers come standard for home charging and workplace charging, they can be installed at homes, businesses and other public locations to enable users to charge their vehicles within only a few hours, depending on the vehicle and rating of the charging point. The most common fast charger we install is rated at 7kW which will charge most vehicles from 0-100% within 6-8 hours.

Slow chargers (or trickle chargers) are just only for emergency charging and can take 12 hours or more to charge the vehicle, they tend to be designed to charge form a normal 13A plug socket and are often not designed to be used day in and day out as it can cause overloads to the sockets it’s connected too.

Different EV Charging Plugs/Connectors are Available?

There are two main types of plug that are commonly used: Type 1 & Type 2.
Type 2 plugs are the ones most commonly used and believed to be the best option, but also the type of plug you use depends on which vehicle you have.
Both types of plugs can charge up to 32 amps but the type 2 plugs also allow 3 phase charging if your installation has this option. This enables faster-charging results in some situations.
