The electric car industry is booming across the world, and Australia is no exception. This isn’t a surprise – after all, swapping to an electric car is a very easy way to both save money on fuel and reduce your carbon footprint. However, along with your electric car you also need an electric car charger.

When you buy an electric vehicle, it will come with a standard 10A 240V charging cable that you can plug into any power point in your garage or carport. However, these types of cables don’t have the fastest charging rates; it could take 24 hours or more to fully charge your vehicle. To get overnight charging, you’ll need to upgrade to a dedicated charging station.

The requirements for an electric car charger vary depending on whether you need one for your home or if you are setting up a charging station at a car park or service centre. For a home charger you really just need one that can charge overnight, and it is best to get one designed specifically for your vehicle. In a commercial setting you will need to be able to offer fast charging, and will need a general rather than brand specific electric car charger.
