7kw Chargers

Electric Vehicle Chargers start off at 3Kw, these are generally the cheapest option. This is available from other providers, but not something we offer – we believe the marginal utility lost in comparison with the cost difference isn’t worthwhile. And we only want to install worthwhile, lasting kit for our valued customers!


10kw Chargers

Electric Vehicle Chargers start off at 3Kw, these are generally the cheapest option. This is available from other providers, but not something we offer – we believe the marginal utility lost in comparison with the cost difference isn’t worthwhile.

Tethered or Untethered?

Ultimately the main difference is the charging cable itself. Tethered chargers have a fixed cable which cannot be removed; Untethered chargers have a detachable cable. The majority of EV buyers will opt for tethered, they’re the most common, and they do have some benefits compared to Untethered, though also a few drawbacks.

Tethered is most probably the most convenient of the two as it doesn’t need much effort when charging your car – similar to the way you’d fill your petrol/diesel car up. The charging cable is also included in the cost of the unit. One drawback to note is Tethered chargers offer one of two connectors – Type 1 qnd Type 2. Type 2 is most recently the standard type of connection, with Type 1 tending to serve older EV’s.

  • Tethered cable cost is included in overall price of unit
  • More convenient as you just have to uncoil the attached cable and plug into your vehicle
  • The cable is permanently attached, less likely to be stolen than untethered
  • You’re limited to the length of cable supplied by the manufacturer, thus if you require extra length it’ll come at an extra cost.
  • Restricted to either Type 1 or Type 2 connectors.

  • 7.4kW untethered home EV charger
  • Wi-Fi enabled to connect with the ivie Charge app
  • Schedule charging that suits your lifestyle
  • Charge when it’s cheapest or greenest 
  • Use the Boost function to charge now
  • Fully installed
  • Includes a complete care package, featuring a 5-year warranty and surge protection as standard

So, what’s the process?

Firstly, once you’ve booked your free consultation and survey by one of our fully-qualified electrical engineers, we’ll usually be out to you within a few days. At this point, we’ll run through the feasibility (on running cables, installing the unit) in certain areas around your property, then run-through the options of chargers available. Our range goes from 7kWH to 44kWH for residential installations. There are some considerations to take into account, such as local ‘grid’ availability – ie. does your property have a switchboard that’s up to scratch, and are the incoming electricity lines able to handle the EV unit.

Provided they have all the information you need, the engineer will then email or present a proposal for you, including dates of availability, costings, and options such as extra features on the unit.

After this, if you wish to proceed, an engineer will be out to you within 7 working days to install the charger.
Once installed, you have a complimentary 3 year warranty and many trouble-free, environmentally friendly miles ahead of you.

FAQs

FAQ’s

If you have any questions, please find our frequently asked questions below.

Are your range compatible with Solar Panels?

Yes! Most of our range are fully-compatible with solar systems. There are a few ways we can do this. Some of our units essentially divert excess generation into an electric vehicle, doing it this way (certainly in 2023) is far more efficient than sending it back to the grid for not a lot of money. The other option is to send the excess back to a battery system to store the energy – this then ultimately charges your EV when you need it.

How long does it take to charge my EV?

It depends on the battery size in your car and the power of your charge point. Typically plug-in hybrids (e.g. Golf GTE, Prius) charge at a rate of 3.7kW, fully charging within 3 hours. Fully electric cars (e.g. Tesla) can charge at 7.4kW on a single phase supply but have a much bigger battery, a 75kWh Tesla Model S would take 10 hours to fully charge. A 3.7kW charge charges at a rate of approximately 12mph, a 7.4kW charge would charge at a rate of approximately 24mph.

Can EV chargers blow my fuseboard?

No, we will always carefully check your existing electrics to ensure that you don’t blow your main fuse. In some instances we may suggest you install a 3.7kW charger rather than 7.4kW. Usually this is not an issue.

What are the benefits of EV chargers at my house?

Driving an electric vehicle benefits the Earth, and charging that vehicle at home benefits YOU with:

  • Convenience
  • Control
  • Cost Savings
  • EV battery protection
  • Increased home value
What are the similarities and differences between Level 1 and Level 2 EV charging?

EV charging with either Level 1 or Level 2 involves feeding alternating current (AC) to the vehicle’s on-board charger which converts the AC power to direct current (DC) to charge the battery. Both chargers also use an SAE J1772 connector which is compatible with all non-Tesla electric vehicles in the United States (Tesla models come with an adaptor upon purchase). The key difference between Level 1 and Level 2 EV charging is charging rate. Level 1 EV charging cables use a standard 120V household outlet which only yields 3 to 5 miles of range per hour. On the other hand, Level 2 EV charging units require a 240V connection and yield 15 to 30 miles of range per hour. Level 2 chargers can also offer smart EV charging features.

What is the best time for EV charging at home?

The best time to charge an EV at home is during off-peak hours when energy rates are the cheapest. You can contact your energy provider to confirm, but off-peak hours are typically from midnight to morning. Utilize smart EV charging features or check your manual to determine how to schedule your charge.

Are there any EV charging best practices I should follow at home?

Yes! One key tip for EV charging at home is to try to maintain your EV battery between 25% and 75%. Also, remember there are many factors that affect charging speed such as charging rate of the vehicle, battery size, battery fullness, and environmental elements such as temperature.

What differentiates one at-home EV charging station from another?

Features that differentiate EV charging stations from one another include:

  • Power
  • Design (size, weight & aesthetic)
  • Smart EV charging capability
  • Mounting
  • Cable length & management
  • Wall plug
  • Outdoor installation
  • Certifications
  • Warranty
