Charging Your Vehicle
Imagine never stopping at a gas station again, and instead, have an unlimited supply of fuel available at home or wherever you normally park. For many electric car drivers, this is a reality. All-electric cars never need gas, and for short trips, plug-in hybrids might use no gas.
Electric car charging is simple, cost-effective and convenient, particularly when you are plugged in at home—filling up your car even while you’re asleep. How long it takes to charge depends on the charging equipment and the size of the car’s battery and its available charging capacity.
Although electric car drivers primarily charge at home, workplace and public chargers are increasingly available in communities nationwide.
There are three convenient ways to charge your electric car.
I can charge at home any time I want, and it is quiet and drives beautifully!
It’s so quiet and quick. I wake up everyday with a full charge, ready to go.
No need to gas up weekly! After work I just come home and plug my car in.

You can charge your electric car using standard 120 volt(V) home outlets (Level 1), 208-240V outlets like those used by your dryer (Level 2), or dedicated 480V public fast chargers (DC Fast Charging). The time it takes to charge using each of these three options depends on your drive and the size of the battery. Charging speed is also determined by the size of the vehicle’s on-board charger and the power lever of the charging equipment.
Level 1 charging uses a standard 120-volt plug. Today, new electric cars come with portable charging equipment to allow you to plug in to any 120-volt outlet. Typically, the average daily commute of 40 miles can be easily replenished overnight with a Level 1 charger.
In most cases Level 2 charging requires charging equipment to be purchased and installed. The typical Level 2 charger can replenish the same 40 mile average daily commute in less than 2 hours.
DC Fast Charging
DC fast chargers can provide 10 to 20 miles of range per minute.
DC Fast Charging is for public charging stations only and not for home use.
Most fully electric cars are equipped for DC Fast Charging today, but always be aware of your car’s charging connector before you try to plug in. You will either have a Tesla connector that can be used at a Tesla Supercharger, an SAE Combo connector or a Chademo connector.

Level 1 and Level 2 Charging Options
Level 1: Electric cars come standard with a 120-volt Level 1 portable charger. Yes, these chargers can be plugged into a simple household outlet, and don’t require any special installation. Pretty cool, right?
Level 2: Drivers can also pursue a higher-powered Level 2 unit for sale and installation in their home. Shop Level 2 chargers and learn about incentives using our Home Charging Advisor. Learn more about home charging with our FAQs.
Tesla’s electric cars come with a plug-in 120/240-volt Level 1/2 charger. These require a 240-volt outlet, which most owners need to have professionally installed.
In general, most electric car drivers want the assurance and convenience of a quicker charge and eventually install the 240-volt, Level 2 charging ability in their home.

If charging at home is not an option or if you need to “top off” during the day for an extra errand, workplace charging is another convenient location to charge your car. Many employers are installing charging for their employees, so check with your company to see if this is an option for you.
If your employer has not implemented workplace charging yet, you can advocate that workplace charging is a good move. You can also provide them resources to help them consider the benefits.
Never fear! There are so many great charging station locators and mobile apps that help you find public charging stations when and where you need it. You can now expect public charging stations in public parking lots at the mall, the grocery store, movie theaters, community centers, arenas, hotels and airports.
Many are free or are offered at affordable prices, usually much less than the cost of gasoline.
You can search by charging speed and even by the station location you are interested, if it is available or currently in use.
Be sure to check with the car manufacturer and electric car driving manual for charging options that are right for your electric car. You may also need a subscription to charge with some of these networks, so plan ahead and do your research before going on that long road trip.
If you are a city or county looking to install public chargers in your area, check out the permitting video and resources to learn more about how you can increase charging in your area.

It’s also important to ensure that there are no exposed wires, as these could cause a shock hazard. Additionally, when installing a charging station in a public area, ensure that it conforms to all applicable safety standards and any relevant local regulations.
Make sure to consult a certified electrician if you are in any doubt regarding the technical aspects of setting up the charger. Additionally, be mindful of where the cable is placed when plugging it into the car’s 12v socket or other connector – remember that it is not recommended to put strain on cords over extended periods of time. Having a quality extension cable also helps make movement around your vehicle more convenient. Take care with charging cables and ensure they do not become entangled around wheel arches, exhaust pipes or brake cables which could result in damage or injury.
Monitor Energy Consumption
One of the best ways to get the most out of your electric vehicle charger is to monitor your energy consumption while charging. Knowing exactly how much power you’re using will help you ensure that you are getting the most cost-effective charge! Additionally, monitoring your energy consumption can help you maximize the longevity of your battery and protect your electric vehicle from overcharging or undercharging.
Many electric vehicle chargers come with a built-in monitoring system that allows you to keep track of your charging progress, set limits for particular charge rates, and even receive alerts when something is going wrong. This makes it easy to stay on top of your energy consumption and make sure it’s staying within your safety margins. For those without an in-built monitoring system, there are many affordable options on the market that allow you to check on your charge remotely via an app on your mobile device. Additionally, these devices often come with additional features such as notifications when certain energy thresholds have been passed and data logging so you can track charging trends over time.
With the help of a portable charging monitor, electric vehicle owners can establish an easy and safe way to charge their vehicle’s battery no matter where they are. Aside from constantly being able to check up on your battery’s status, these devices come packed with many other useful features such as timers, safety protections, and even remote control settings so you can start/stop charging remotely. So if you want to be sure that your vehicle is getting the safest and most efficient charge possible while you’re on the go, a portable charger monitor is a great investment.
Not only can these monitors help you get the most out of each charge, they can also help you track your energy usage and identify potential issues that may be causing a spike in your electricity bill. Portable charger monitors come equipped with a variety of functions such as real-time monitoring and data collection which allow you to review your electric vehicle’s charging history and make informed decisions on how much energy they should be using.

EV chargers are popping up all over the place, so be proactive and search for a list of available green electricity providers ahead of time. This way, you won’t find yourself running out of juice in the middle of nowhere!
Portable EV chargers are a great way to ensure that you have backups in case you can’t find charging stations along your route. They are highly convenient and much lighter than traditional EV chargers; all the more reason to invest in one! When selecting a portable EV charger, it is important to pay attention to the output voltage and amps. This will tell you how quickly the charger will get your car back up and running. Chargers with higher volts (110V) take longer to charge but have a lower risk of overloading the electrical system. If speed is what you’re after, look for a charger with higher amps (30Amp).
It is also essential to check earlier in the week that the charge you need is available at the place you plan on visiting. This will give you enough time to adjust your route if needed, or plan alternative arrangements. While portable chargers are a fantastic option for fresh-air trips, it can be difficult to predict precisely when and where you’ll need to charge up next, so you should come prepared with plenty of planned recharging stations just to be safe.
According to car experts, the key to using portable chargers successfully while travelling is preparation. Before leaving home, make sure you’ve packed your charger in an easily accessible place and that you know how to use it properly. Check the length of charging time and capacity of your device by checking their data sheets. When on the go, keep a full bird’s eye view of all recharging stations nearby, so you know what other charging options are available if your portable recharge doesn’t last as long as expected.

Q. Would this product/item/cable work as an extension cable?
A. No. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards don’t allow for extension cables on EV Cables.The IEC standard is clear on the matter; “A cord extension set or second cable assembly shall not be used in addition to the cable assembly for the connection of the EV to EVSE.”. Therefore any EV extension cable will sit outside of the standards and may affect your vehicle warranty in the event of a claim. details and options here:https://evcables.co.uk/pages/ev-extension-cable
Q. Why is one of the pins further back on my plug?
A. This is part of the standard. It is a safety feature on the plugs/cable so when it is unplugged the power disconnects first.
Charging Cable Checklist
Before buying your EV cable, make sure you’ve selected the right cable for your electric
vehicle with our checklist:
Confirm the charging cable is compatible with your electric vehicle (EV). Use our car model search to find the correct cable for your vehicle, or check if your vehicle is listed in the ‘Car Checker’ tab. Want to double check? Simply speak to our team.
Check it’s the right length for your needs. For example, if you’re using a public charging station, we recommend a length of 5 metres because it’s not always possible to park on the nearest side of the charging station. If you’re using the cable with a wall charger at home or work, simply measure the length needed to reach the vehicle socket.
Don’t have your electric vehicle yet? Check with the manufacturer, dealer or seller to confirm if it already comes with a charging cable.
This cable can’t be used to adapt or extend an existing charging cable. If a charging cable is already connected to a charging point, it can’t be daisy-chained together to extend the length. It can only be used with the open socket of a charging point.
This EV charging cable is compatible with AC charging stations usually found in supermarkets, retail parks, on the street and wall chargers, typically installed outside a home or office. It’s not a DC fast charging cable (also known as CCS and CHAdeMO), so you don’t need to buy a cable to use fast charging stations as they’re already connected to the charging station.
Still unsure? Simply get in touch and we’ll make sure you buy right first time.
