The benefits of a home charger

Charge more efficiently. Charging with the Mode 2 cable and a regular socket limits charging to 10A and 2,3 kW. This is far below the full charging capacity of new EVs. A charging station has a dedicated circuit of 16A or more. This allows you to take better advantage of the charging capacity of your vehicle.

Charging stations come with a mounted cable or an outlet for separate Mode 3 cables, which are available in several dimensions. With a 16A circuit, you can choose a Mode 3 cable that provides a charging effect of up to 22 kW. A dedicated circuit also makes charging times far more reliable.
