What are the differences between home and professional chargers?

Electric vehicle batteries run on direct current (DC).

Professional electric vehicle chargers charge with DC current while home installations with AC and this because the cost would be too high and not only for the installation. So home chargers need more charging time in order to convert AC to DC.

How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?

There are several parameters that play a role in the time it takes an electric vehicle to charge.

First, whether the vehicle will be charged via the OBC (On-board charger) and the battery capacity of the electric vehicle play a role. Also, the faster we charge a battery, the more damage we do to it.

In short, we reduce its life time. This is why many electric vehicle manufacturers recommend charging times that increase gradually to maintain the original estimated battery life.

It is possible that the integrated software in the battery brain of the electric vehicle does not let you spend the last 10% of the battery at the beginning of use.

What types of plugs are there for the electric car charger?

In Greece, the Type 2 plug is valid, which has a circular shape consisting of a total of seven contacts. The specific contacts contain all the electrical phases (L1, L2, L3), the neutralization (N) and grounding (PE) conductors, as well as two contacts (PP, CP) through which communication between the station and the car is achieved.

All types of sockets:
• Type 1 - Single-phase connector (based on SAE J1772/2009 standard), widely applied in North American and Asian markets.

• Type 2 - Single-phase or Three-phase connector (based on the VDE-AR-E 2623-2-2 standard) covering the European market as well as South American countries.

• Type 3 - Single-phase or Three-phase connector similar to Type 2, which comes with protective safety shutters.

• Type 4 - Connectors used for ultra-fast DC charging and depending on the origin of the electric vehicle, there is the CHAdeMO plug or CCS (Combined Charging System).
