Should I charge my EV to 100%?

There is no need to charge to 100%, unless you need to rely on the entire driving range of the vehicle. Staying between 20% and 80% battery capacity will leave you with plenty of driving miles and be gentle on the battery.

Yes. Wallbox Chargers are compatible with every EV available in the market from passenger cars right up to heavy trucks.

Let us know what model EV you have and we’ll know which plug type you need on your charger.

 

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

The time it takes to charge will varies. It depends on the size of the battery, how it’s being charged (e.g., from a normal socket or using a dedicated AC charger) and whether you have any other appliances on at the same time.

Generally speaking, a mid-size EV (with a 60kWh battery) will takes around 23 hours to charge from 20% to 80% from a normal 8amp socket, and 6 hours using a 7.4 kW smart EV charger.

 

What is Smart Charging?

Smart charging is term that is often thrown around with lots of meaning, but the key functionality with smart charging is control.

  • Ability to set up scheduled charging
  • Give you the option to charge multiple EVs at the same house
  • Control so that all EV charging is done in a way that ensures you don't overload your house or the grid.

Once set up, a smart charger will do all of the above without any of your time being taken up. All you have to do is plug in and the charger will do the rest.
