Don't worry! Here are some answers to the most frequently asked EV charging questions.
Let's get to it...
1. How do you charge your electric car?
There are three main methods to charge an electric car:
1. A 3-pin plug charger
3-pin plug charging is the method of charging an electric vehicle using a 3-pin household outlet. You will need either a Type 1 or 2 to 3-pin charging cables. This is the slowest and most dangerous way to charge an electric car. The 3-pin plug should only be used for emergency situations or other disposable purposes.
2. Charger for your home
The standard rating is 7kW. However, if you have 3-phase power and are willing to pay more, a 22kW home charge will be possible. With a dedicated charger on your property, charging can be done quickly and easily - three times faster than a 3-pin socket! Dedicated home chargers have smart features that will improve your EV charging experience, including solar compatibility, charging schedules, and lockout capabilities.

3. Public charging piles
Public chargers are available in most supermarkets, car parks, and motorway stations. They can charge your electric car. You can choose between fast chargers that are rated at 7kW or 22kW or standard chargers that charge at 50kW.
Although some public chargers can be used for free and are great for quick charging, they don't offer the convenience of being able to charge your EV while you are away from home. You can also damage your electric vehicle by using fast chargers too often. So, it's better to save money on fast charging when you travel long distances.
2. Is there any government grant to pay for home EV chargers
OZEV's Electric Vehicle Homecharge program offers a grant of PS350 for single homeowners to install an electric vehicle charger. This is for detached, semi-detached, and townhouses as well as bungalows. There is a new version to the EV Home Charging program - subsidized EV chargers for apartment owners or those who live in rental properties. PS350 is still an affordable option for renters or owners of rental properties.
If you're a homeowner with one family, you won't have any funds. Our EV chargers are available with financing so that you can spread out the cost.
