The Ultimate Guide to Home EV Charger Installations in Brisbane
Welcome to Queensland Solar & Lighting, where we’re passionate about driving the EV revolution in Brisbane! As electric vehicles become increasingly popular, understanding your home charging options is essential. Let me guide you through the ins and outs of EV charging at home, especially with more and more people buying solar systems with batteries for their homes and business.
Understanding Your Home EV Charging Options
The Basics of EV Charging at Home
Portable Charging Cables: A Flexible Option
Firstly, let’s talk about portable charging cables. These cables, usually included with your EV, offer a convenient but slower charging method. They’re perfect for those times when you need a quick top-up or find yourself in a pinch without access to a faster charging option.
- Charging Speed: Around 8-10 km of range per hour.
- Ease of Use: Just plug into any standard 240-volt outlet.
- Portability: Easy to carry and use anywhere.
Wall-Mounted Chargers: The Efficient Choice
For daily charging, a wall-mounted home charger is your best bet. These chargers, installed on a dedicated circuit, provide a much quicker charge than portable cables, making them ideal for overnight charging or quick top-ups between trips.
Why Opt for Wall-Mounted Chargers?
- Speed: Charges 3-4 times faster than portable cables.
- Convenience: Perfect for overnight charging.
- Cost-Effective: Can utilize off-peak electricity rates.
