Given the limitations of the ordinary 3-pin socket, installing a dedicated 16A or 32A home charging point for your electric vehicle is the best option. It can be installed in your garage or on a convenient outside wall.

A proper EV charging point will charge your battery more quickly and more safely than a domestic socket. You can also quickly top up your car’s battery, while you nip home for lunch, giving you extra range without a full charge.

A 16A charge point will charge your battery at 3 to 3.6 kW, whereas a 32A charger will deliver about 7 kW of power, so the 32A charger will be twice as quick to charge the car.
