uk EV smart charging regulations

EV home charging stations, also known as Level 2 chargers, are the most common type of EV chargers at home and are often used in residential settings. These chargers are compatible with a wide range of electric vehicles, making them a versatile option for EV owners. Level 2 EV charging, like the CITA EV Smart 7 and 22, is sufficient if you plan on staying at the charging location for at least one or two hours, such as overnight at home.

These chargers can provide up to 25 miles of range per hour of charging, making them a preferred choice for most EV owners as they significantly reduce the time required to recharge their vehicle. However, it's essential to install a wall box that increases the power coming out of the wall socket to use a Level 2 EV charger at home. CITA EV has a list of certified installers across the country who can help you with the installation process. This installation is typically done by a qualified electrician and can provide a convenient and efficient charging solution for most electric vehicles.
