Frequently Asked Questions About EV Chargers
If you have a Solar PV system installed, alongside a solar-compatible EV charger, you can 100% Charge your EV with your PV!
So how does a solar EV charger work? Well, Solar Compatible EV Chargers such as the Zappi, can be integrated into your Solar PV system, so that when there is surplus green energy, your Electric Vehicle can charge from it. Effectively giving your free green miles and a great return on your green investment. The myenergi Zappi is considered the world’s first solar EV charger.
A Smart EV Charger is simply a charging point that can be connected to the internet. When you plug your EV into a Smart Charger you are essentially sharing data, that allows you to optimise your car charging.
Smart Charging means that you can communicate with your electric vehicle and charging operator remotely. This allows you to update your firmware, choose when you want to charge, utilise time of use and economy tariffs, and renewable energy sources. By having your Electric Vehicle charging connected to the internet you are in control of how much you are drawing from the National Grid and when. All at the touch of your phone.
To find out more about the different features of an EV charger read our Guide to EV Chargers.
EV charging can be categorised into three different levels. Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. These levels represent the charging speed of an EV charger, where Level 1 is the slowest and Level 3 is the fastest. Each level has designated connector types that are designed for managing AC or DC charging.
Most EVs and EV chargers in the UK are compatible. This is because most available EVs will either have a Type 1 inlet socket (120-volt AC) or a Type 2 inlet Socket (240-volt AC). These two types of plugs support AC (Alternating Current) charging and corresponds to Level 1 and Level 2 Charging. However, it is Direct Current (DC) or fast charging which is not as compatible. DC fast charging/Level 3 would require a plug specific to the Car brand.
Almost all modern EVs and home charging points have the same Type 2 inlet. Type 2 connectors (7-pin connectors) are currently industry standard, and can be found on public chargers also.
Most UK homes have a single-phase AC supply, which means the maximum rate at which you can charge your Electric Vehicle is at 7kWh. This is why 7kWh EV Chargers are the most common option for domestic home charging.
If you are lucky enough to have an AC three-phase supply, you can install a 22kWH EV Charger and benefit from faster charging speeds. Where a 7kWh faster charger would take around 8 hours on average to fully charge a car, a 22kWh EV Charger would take only 3-4 hours. 22kW chargers are most commonly used in commercial spaces, or modern developments. It is worth noting that not all EVs can charge at these high rates on AC.
