Are there different types of EV charging point?

There are three main types of EV charging point: rapid, fast and slow. They pretty much do exactly what they say on the tin.

Rapid or super chargers are mainly found at motorway services and other public locations where super-fast charging is necessary during a journey. A typical example is Tesla Super Charger, which takes just 20  minutes to charge the vehicle up to 80%.

Fast chargers are the standard for home and workplace charging and enable people to charge their vehicles within a few hours, depending on the vehicle and rating of the charging point. The most common fast charger we install is rated at 7kW, which will charge most vehicles from 0-100% within 6-12 hours.

Slow chargers (or trickle chargers) are generally only for emergency charging and can take 12-24 hours or more to charge the vehicle. They usually use a normal 13A plug socket and are not intended to be used day in and day out because they may overload the sockets in your house.

What sort of plugs/connectors do I need?

There are two main kinds of plug: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 2 are most common and all new vehicles come with Type 2 as standard. The type of plug you need is determined by the type of vehicle you have and both types can charge up to 32A, but the Type 2 plug also allows for three-phase charging if your installation has this option. This enables faster charging in some situations.
