What are EV Chargers?

EVs, or electric vehicles, are becoming more and more popular. And as the demand for EVs grows, so does the demand for chargers, also often referred to as charging stations.

EVSE, or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment, are devices that transfer electrical energy to an EV battery, thereby charging the vehicle.

The energy entering the battery is AC, but the charger converts it to DC, which is optimal for electric vehicles. There are 3 main types of EV chargers: level 1 (slow), level 2 (fast), and level 3 (ultra-fast).

Different Types of EV Chargers

There are three standard charging levels for electric vehicles: slow, fast, and ultra-fast.

Level 1 charging uses a 2.4 to 3.7kW plug, the kind you use for most household appliances. This is the slowest way to charge an EV, taking 5 to 24 hours to fully charge a battery, ranging from 10 to 20km per charging hour.

Level 2 charging uses a 7kW plug, similar to what you might use for car parks or shopping centres. Level 2 chargers can fully charge a 24 kWh battery in 2 to 5 hours, or 40 to 100km per hour.

Level 3 charging, also known as DC fast charging, uses 11 to 22kW and can charge a battery in as little as 30 minutes, or 50 to 130km per hour.

It's worth noting that level 3 chargers are usually found on highways, regional roads, and key routes.

Choosing the Right EV Installation

The installation of your new EVSE charger will be handled by a trained and certified electrician from TPS. The charging station should ideally be no more than 3m away from the connection port on your vehicle.

It is becoming increasingly common to use 3-phase power in homes and, if the installation point has access to one, we would recommend making it available for your property.

Alternatively, you'll need a 10-15Amp single-phase connection to be compatible with electric vehicles. Our electric vehicle chargers include configurable outputs that allow them to work on both single- and three-phase connections.

Dynamic Load Management

With dynamic load management, the charging station, or a group of charging stations, uses an external meter that is usually placed in the main distribution board on the property. The charger keeps track of how much electricity is used in the rest of the property and can therefore adjust how much electricity is used for EV charging at any given moment. At the same time, you can use the capacity you have in the property more efficiently, so that the car charges as quickly as possible - without the main fuse tripping.

EV Charging FAQ:

What does EV charging mean?

EVs, or electric vehicles, unlike traditional petrol-powered vehicles, require electrical charging to function. EV charging is the use of specialised equipment to charge an EV from an electrical power point. Charging stations are often installed at home, work, or on motorways.

Is charging EV free?

No, charging EV vehicles isn’t free. You will need to purchase the installation and the overall process. The equipment is available for purchase, and the chargers come with different features. The accessories make it easy to operate and also to maintain the equipment.

What are the 3 Types of EV Charging?

There are 3 different types of chargers that are differentiated by the speed at which they can charge. They range from over night top-up charging (type 1), to a full charge in about 5 hours (type 2) to a full charge in 25-30 minutes (type 3).

What is the Difference Between Level 1 and Level 2 Charging Stations?

Level 1 charging stations use 10 or 15Amp AC power, similar to what you have in your home. They require a dedicated circuit and can take up to 24 hours to fully charge a vehicle. Level 1 charging stations are best for overnight charging at home or at a location where you’ll be parked for several hours.

Level 2 charging stations use 7.4kW single-phase or 22kW 3-phase power and can charge an EV much faster. In fact, most Level 2 EV chargers can fully charge a car in 5 hours. These charging stations are often found at public charging stations or workplaces.
