Today, recharging the electric car at home is a must for many people who have chosen to buy an electric car. Charging stations for electric cars, i.e. a charging pump that can be conveniently installed in the private home, are used to perform this task.
Let’s take a look at the private car charging station, how it works and how much it costs.
Is it possible to recharge the electric car at home?
DazeTechnology’s advice is to recharge the electric car at home by installing a charging station in the car garage or garage where it will be stationary for several hours. The advantage of recharging at home is the possibility of partial recharging without damaging the efficiency of the batteries.
Should I change the meter or increase the power of the system?
Charging the electric car at home does not require changing the meter or increasing the power of the system. It is also possible to use the meter limited to 3kW with adjustable current charging stations or to charge at night. Only if electricity consumption needs are greater will an increase in meter power be necessary.
There is also no need to contact the network operator, as no permission or authorization is needed. Recharging your car at home at low cost makes electric cars a very convenient solution, especially if you use self-generated electricity from your photovoltaic system.
How long does a full charge take?
The charging speed depends on the charging power and the charging station and battery charger of the electric car. Those who have a 7.4 kW charging post and a 3.7 kW car charger will have 3.7 kW charging power.
Full charging at 7.4 kW takes 2 to 3 hours, charging at 3.7 kW even up to 6 hours. As in the case of conventional cars, one rarely does a full recharge and prefers intermediate recharges of 1-2 hours a day called bottle-feeding.
How long does electric car charging last
To date, bacteria are not scrapped, which is why it is difficult to say how long electric car batteries last, although it is estimated that there are 1000 to 1500 charging cycles for a total range of 300 km per charge with a lifetime of 300,000 to 400,000 kilometres.
Not only that. Today, most manufacturers grant a battery warranty of eight years and 160,000 kilometres for the best-selling electric cars in the third quarter of 2020.
Within this period or distance, the battery must not lose more than 25 per cent of its charge capacity. And this answers the question concerning ecology. The higher resource consumption for the production of electric cars compared to conventional combustion cars is already compensated for after 20,000 to 40,000 kilometres.
DazeTechnology in this context, it stands as a benchmark for private car charging and since 2016 its mission is to make everyday electric car charging convenient, simple and intelligent.
The company is the first in the world to have conceived and developed an automatic conductive charging system: DazePlug. While this product is still undergoing development, DazeTechnology offers a range of products and services for private electric vehicle charging and, to a lesser extent, public charging applications.
For classic charging, DazeTechnology has developed DazeBox, a smart wallbox focused on design and user-friendliness. All DazeTechnology charging systems are Made in Italy and share the same sophisticated design.
