People always  ask 

“Are all Electric Car Chargers the same”?

Electric Car Charger Installation Company Able Electric state – 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

Domestic Electric Car Charging 

Electric car charging Installation company Tamworth serving Birmingham advise-When charging your EV electric car at home, you have two choices. You can one plug it into a standard UK three-pin socket, or two get a special home fast-charging point installed.

You may choose option one as it’s easy and convenient, but it’s also the slowest option. Charging using a 3 pin plug can take many hours, depending on the size of the battery. Meanwhile, if you go for option two a home fast-charging point, then you have to arrange to have it installed, but you get much faster charging times as a result. 

Given that circa 80% of all car charging happens at home, it’s probably worth having the fast-charging point installed – assuming, of course, you have a garage or a driveway on which it can be positioned. 

You will also be able to obtain a government OLEV grant towards the cost. This grant is available to anyone who owns or uses an eligible electric or plug-in car, including company car drivers. A full list of eligible cars can be found here. Bear in mind that fast-charging points can only be installed by an approved contractor like Able Electrical

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.

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:

Battery size all You Need to Know

Battery size 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,
