Slow chargers are rated at anything below 3.6kW. These include a standard UK three pin plug that can be plugged into the households plug sockets and also Type 1 and Type 2 designated charging points.  These will typically take between 6 – 12 hours to fully charge a battery.

Most home chargers are in this power range, between 3.6 kW and 7kW. These just use Type 1 or Type 2 cables that you will need to plug into an installed charging station. The average mile range per 30 mins of charging using these chargers is around 12 miles per 30 mins.

Fast chargers are rated at power outputs between 7kW – 22kW, these are more commonly found at workplaces that have charging stations but can be installed for domestic use as well. Using these a full battery can be charged in 3 – 7 hours of charging depending on the power output of the charger and the size of the battery.

Rapid chargers are the fastest chargers available and can charge the car’s battery to 80% charge within 40minutes or less. These chargers run at 43kW+. These are often found on motorway service stations, petrol stations, shopping centres and some supermarkets. These will usually be tethered and some you won’t need to bring your own charging cable as they will have them pre-connected to the charging station, so just pick it up and plug it in to start.

These are when you plug your electric car into your house’s electrical network using a standard plug into a socket in your house, these have a maximum amperage of 13 amps. The maximum power output using a standard plug and socket for your electric car is 3kW. These chargers will take a long time to charge your car’s battery to the maximum, and generally a car will go 5 miles for every 30mins of charging using them. One thing to consider when using this is that they should only be used as a last resort as they are not designed to withstand the loads that come with charging these vehicles in the long term and so should not be used until necessary.
