Electric vehicle home charging points can vary in charge time due to their power output, as well as the size of your EV’s battery. Generally, compared to public charge points, electric car charging at home is slower because the chargers aren’t as powerful. Most EV owners charge their vehicles overnight, so they have a full battery the next day.
Typically, the average electric car runs with a 60kWh battery – so, a 7kW charging point would take around 8 hours to fully charge your vehicle. However, a public charge point could generate as much as 50kW, charging your vehicle in minutes. So, even if you’re on the road for a long time you won’t be making overnight pitstops.
