EV home charge point options

Home » EV home charge point options

For home electric charge points there are 2 mainstream charging technologies either Mode 2 or Mode 3 charging. Put simply Mode 2 charging is a dedicated circuit with a 13amp socket whereas Mode 3 uses a dedicated Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE).

Mode 2

Dedicated circut installed to a dedicated socket
Maximum of 10amp supply
Typical vehicle full charge 24 hours
Use car manufacturers in-cable control box (ICCB)

Mode 3

Dedicated supply to a EVSE
Chargers 16amp – 32amps (3.2Kw – 7.2kW)
Typical vehicle full charge 8 hours
Cable tethered or removable charging cable to EVSE

The bigger your car’s battery and the slower the charging point (number of amps ), the longer it takes to charge from empty to full. Charge your electric car at home as often you need to in line with manufacturers guidelines. Even regard it as charging a mobile phone, fully charging overnight and topping up in the day if necessary
