Home charging posts
We offer a complete range of EV charging for homes and businesses. In particular, the wall-mounted charging models offer a solution in situations where standing charging points take up too much space. Suspended charging stations also offer the option of neatly concealing them, so that they are not an inconvenience when not in use.
Different Types of EV Charger Plugs
Type 1 plug
The Type 1 plug hasn't made a fast entry in the Netherlands, since this is a 100V plug and is mainly used in North America and Japan. Charging an electric car with the Yazaki plug is possible, but charging is much slower. This is caused by the fact that one of the three available phases is used with the Type 1 plug. This type of plug is found on cars such as the Opel Ampera, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
Type 2 plug
The type 2 plug was designated by the European Commission as the standard for charging electric cars. The advantage of the Mennekes plug is that it is possible to use both 1-phase (power from the socket at home) and can be charged with 3-phase (power current). The Mennekes plug is found on car brands such as Tesla, Volvo V60 and BMW i3.
What should I pay attention to when buying?
Can I charge my car at any charging station?
You can charge your electric car at any electric car charging station depending on the plugs available for use. You should know you car's charger type before doing this. You can usually get by with a combo plug.
Do you have a car with a type 1 connection? Then you can purchase an adapter plug so that you can still charge it anywhere.
How long does it take to charge my car?
That depends on the maximum charging capacity of your car and the capacity of the charging station or your meter box. You can easily calculate the approximate duration yourself with this simple calculation:
Vehicles Battery Size (kWh) / Charging Power (kW) = Time to Charge
For this, you take the power of the battery in your car, say 65 kWh, and that of your wall box, say 22 kW, then it takes about 3 hours before the battery is fully charged. The condition is that your car and meter box can charge 22 kW
What about charging my car with my own solar energy?
When you have your own solar panels, it becomes considerably more interesting to charge your car with your own wallbox. The green energy then goes directly into your car, without the intervention of the electricity grid. In this way, you are much closer to self-sufficient living.
