What to consider when installing a home EV charger

Make sure you’re charged up and ready to go with a home EV charger best-suited to your e-mobility needs.

  • Tick
    Socket type

    Check the cable has the right socket for your EV. This will commonly be a Type-2 connection but may be a Type-1 for pre 2020 EVs.

  • Tick
    Installation location and cable length

    Think about what your normal parking habits are. Your charger should be conveniently located to accommodate how you park. Make sure you generally park close enough to the proposed location of the charger for the cable to reach the front, middle and rear of the vehicle on both sides. If you’re unsure, we recommend you measure your chosen cable length from your preferred charger location, prior to installation.

  • Tick
    Power output

    Before purchasing an EV charger, it's important to match its output with your vehicle's onboard inverter capability, which sets the upper limit for how fast your EV can charge. Make sure you're happy with this limit and that it will provide enough charge for your day-to-day needs.

  • Tick
    EV charger ‘smarts’

    Do you want to be able to charge from your surplus solar, or connect with a home battery? Do you want to be able to integrate with third-party apps, or charge with cheap grid power via a Time-of-Use tariff? Make sure your new EV charger has all the smart capabilities you want.

  • Tick
    Consider the future
    Have you considered whether you may own more than one EV in the future? If this is a possibility, a three-phase installation or upgrade may be the best solution to put in place now.
