Earth Electrical installed a total of 12 EV charging units in domestic premises this week.
4 X Rolec EVHS2020 home smart socketed (universal socket ‘will charge all cars’)
8 x Rolec EVHS2140 home smart tethered (has a 5 meter lead hard wired in unit)
Tethered (tethered lead 5 meters standard)If you go for a tethered type charger (cable attached to the unit):
Advantage: Just uncoil and plug in.
Disadvantage: Not all electric and hybrid cars have the same plugs or sockets. Type 2 is the most common on cars. Type 1 the type relates to, Mitsubishi Outlanders, Nissan Leafs before 2018, Kia souls before 2018, the newer nissan and kia models use Type 2.
Socket type (does not come with public charging lead)If you go for the socket type charger:
Advantages: looks better on wall, all electric and hybrid cars can use
Disadvantages: getting lead from boot each time you charge, when its rained (putting wet lead in boot). It does not come with a lead (known as a public charging lead).
