What factors contribute to charging times?

Battery capacity
The larger the capacity of the battery, the longer it will take to charge. This also applies to the level of depletion of the battery (e.g. an empty battery will take longer to fully charge than a half-full battery).
State of Charge
It is recommended to keep your EV battery charging status between 20-80% full. When charging outside of this range, it is known to cause charging to slow down.
Rate of the EV vs Rate of chargepoint
Maximum charge rate of the EV compared to the Maximum rate of the ChargePoint: The interplay between the maximum charge rate that an EV is able to consume and the maximum output a ChargePoint can supply is crucial in understanding charging times. If your EV has a maximum charge rate of 7kw and you are using a 22kw ChargePoint, your EV will not charge any faster than 7kw. Equally if your vehicle is able to consume a charge rate of 11kw, however you are using a 7kw ChargePoint your EV will charge at 7kw.
External Temperature
When charging an EV it has been found that colder external temperatures make the charging process slightly longer, as electricity flow is reduced. This consequence is more apparent through the use of Rapid chargers. However due to the generally warm Australian climate this isn’t an issue we are greatly affected by.

Why should I purchase a home charging unit if I can readily use the public DC Fast chargers and Ultra-fast chargers?

  • Battery care

    EV Powerhouse does not recommend DC Fast chargers and Ultra-fast chargers as a primary method of charging your EV as research has shown that the use of these chargers in the long run negatively impacts the longevity and durability of the EV battery. EV Powerhouse does however indorse home charging units as safe and reliable to use, as a permanent and primary method of charging your EV.

  • Cost

    The costs associated with using these chargers (based on time or kw usage) although usually reasonable for a one-time charge, will eventually overtime add up and prove to be quite expensive.

  • Convenience

    An at home, personal use EV charging unit is no doubt the most convenient way to charge an EV. It gives clients the freedom to choose when they charge and how long they charge for, all in the comfort of their own home.

TCL (Trickle Charge Lead): These leads are primarily supplied with the vehicle at the time of sale. They are mainly used in PHEV Hybrid (Electric/Petrol) run vehicles and are not designed nor are they capable of fully charging the battery overnight.
