We supply the best quality, European manufactured, reliable, value-for-money, safe, correctly certified, EV Charging products available. Once you understand your vehicles charging needs, then there are several key areas that will influence your decision on which EV Charger is the best solution for your situation.
Electric vehicles are charged up from either an AC or DC supply. Think AC for slow and steady charging at home or work, and DC for Public Fast Charging. Your electric vehicle will have a limitation (or ceiling) for how much AC or DC that it can charge from. If unsure, check out yours on the 'EVs in Australia' page.
Electrical Regulations dictate that an EV Charging Stations must be an individual dedicated circuit, that is protected by a Circuit Breaker and RCD Type B (or RCD Type A if the Charging Station has internal DC protection). For Residential installations, we can either guide your preferred electrician, or recommend one. Budget for approx. $850, per charger.
Ideally, your Charging Station needs to be able to communicate with a backend support, and be able to receive regular firmware updates. For this, it is great to be able have access, at the proposed Charging Station location to a good 4G and/or Wi-Fi signal. For those that enjoy cool Apps, we use both 'Network Cell Info Lite' and 'WiFiman' to measure strength.
Your choice of Lead vs Socket, for Residential, is all around the convenience and safety of a tethered lead. Will it get in the way, will it cause a hazard, is the unit being installed inside or outside? Then, what length do you require to reach your EV Charging Port?
Do you currently have solar, and have the ability to maximise charging your EV from it during the day? Would you like to control and schedule your Charging Sessions via an App? Do you have an older house? Is Main Circuit Breaker single phase, and rated at either 50 or 63 Amps? If your answer is 'Yes" to any of the above, then you need this feature.
