An EV Charger is basically a smart power supply to safely charge vehicle batteries and provide control and monitoring at the same time.
Depending on the Charger Power Rating and the Electric Vehicle Battery, the time it takes to fully charge a vehicle battery can vary from between 10 minutes to overnight, and everything in between.
Typically EV Chargers are installed either on a suitable wall, a free standing pedestal, or mobile or floor mounted.
Depending on your preference, EV Chargers come with either inbuilt cables or just with a socket, whereby the consumer has their own cable.
Every EV Charger draws AC power from the grid, however, the vehicle battery can only store DC power. This means an AC to DC conversion needs to take place to charge the vehicle battery.
Where the conversion takes place is the difference between AC and DC EV Chargers.
AC EV Chargers supply AC into the vehicle and the AC to DC conversion is handled by the on-board
charger of your vehicle.
The onboard charger power rating of most vehicles is currently limited to either 7kW or 11kW and therefore this limits the time it takes to charge the battery.
A DC EV Charger performs the AC to DC conversion within the charger itself and bypasses the onboard vehicle charger and charges the battery directly.
This means DC EV Chargers can supply larger currents and can therefore charge batteries from as little as 10 minutes.
Smart chargers can be programmed to charge vehicles only when the sun is shining, and when solar power is being generated.
In which case your vehicle is charged by 100% renewable energy. This means, zero emissions and effectively a “free battery charge or tank”.
Smart chargers also come with Mobile Apps which allow you to start and stop charging
remotely, program automatic charging times, see the charging rate, record historic charging
data, and much more.
