Electric Car Charger Installation Birmingham
People always ask
“Are all Electric Car Chargers the same”?
The simple straightforward answer is no. Electric car chargers vary this is why it is essential to contact an independent car charger installer for advice. People with solar panels will be best suited to a charger that can take the power directly from their solar panels. That is of course if they are not at work and they can charge in the day. Companies who want data and to charge drivers the cost of charging will need a smart charger. Those companies who just intend the charger to be of use for the MD and staff might not want to charge the electricity usage. They would be happy with a dumb charger. Other companies may want banks of chargers. The list goes on call 0121 2850136 for advice
Able Electric Birmingham state – Although they are not yet mainstream there are quite a few benefits that come with driving your Electric vehicle (EV), but as we speak to drivers about EVs every day we do understand that many people still have concerns about making the switch from petrol or diesel. Even with well-established car brands such as Mini and Vauxhall now entering the market alongside electric car innovators Tesla.
According to the motoring research organisation, the RAC Foundation, around one in five job adverts requires the applicant to be able to drive. With more than 15 million people regularly driving to work in England and Wales, and light vans accounting for more than 50 billion vehicle miles each year, there are plenty of people who rely on their car or van for work.
So it’s not surprising that one of the biggest issues on people’s minds usually revolves around how long it takes to charge an electric car. If you are on the road a lot or using your car or van for work you might think that charging times mean electric just isn’t for you. But you may be surprised to learn that charging up might not take anywhere near as long as you think.
Electric cars are available in a variety of battery sizes to suit different driving needs. In terms of charging; the bigger the battery in your car, the longer it’s going to take to fully charge. The current Nissan LEAF has a 40kWh battery, whereas the Jaguar I-Pace has a larger 90kWh battery, and as a result, the I-Pace will take longer to charge to its full capacity as it has a bigger battery to fill.
How fast can you charge an electric car?
Put simply the time it will take to charge will depend on the size of your car’s battery and the speed of the charger you’re it plugging into. Illustrated in this image, using the Nissan LEAF and a home charger as an example:
There are public and home charging options available to suit your regular commute as well as those occasional long-distance trips. If you knew that you could put more than 30 miles into your car battery in just 10 minutes, (or 70 miles in 10 minutes if you have a Tesla hooked up to a supercharger), would that change your opinion on whether an electric vehicle is suitable for your job or busy life?
Although public rapid charging can be utilised on longer journeys, the majority of EV drivers will find that for their day to day driving it’s enough to plug in overnight at home, so your car charges while you’re sleeping. Car charging is just like plugging in your mobile phone, but the plug is a bit bigger, and the car isn’t on your bedside table!
Growing Demand for Electric Car Charging Points across Birmingham and the West Midlands
Able Electric EV Car Charger Installation Birmingham advise – Full electric and plug-in hybrid cars are growing in popularity and now come in all shapes and sizes, from two-seater city cars to 4×4 off-roaders. Electric vehicle (EV) technology has developed greatly since the milk float, and as performance and range increases, purchasing an electric vehicle is becoming a very real option for many people.
One of the main benefits of electric vehicles is their environmental credentials. Unlike petrol or diesel cars, electric cars don’t emit any of the gases that contribute to global warming, making them a great choice for anyone who cares about their carbon footprint. As one of 13 members of the Zero Emission Vehicle Alliance, the UK has pledged to make all passenger vehicles sold “zero-emissions” by 2050.
