One of the many benefits of driving an EV is that you can charge it from the comfort of your own home and wake up with a full tank. Here’s what you need to know.
Portable three-pin charging cable:
Most electric cars come with a portable charger that, like any other electricals, can be plugged into a standard power outlet. These chargers should have a built-in control and safety system (ICCPD). It’s bad business to use a charger that doesn’t have an ICCPD.
If you have a space in your garage or around the house where a wall-mounted charging station can be installed, this is a perfect way to charge your electric car much faster than using a conventional socket.
The price of a wall charger will range from $1,300 to $3,000. (excluding installation).
