Frequently asked questions about EV home charging

A 7kW Pod Point Solo 3 smart charger costs from £999 to install. In some cases, the price of the Pod Point Solo 3 smart charger may be less than this, due to subsidised pricing agreed with vehicle manufacturers.

Tethered charge points have a long cable and are available with either a Type 1 or Type 2 connector:

  • Most new EVs come with a Type 2 connector, but it's worth checking before getting a tethered charge point
  • A socketed charge point is a charging station with no cable
  • Socketed charge points can charge any electric car with a fast charging cable

This depends on the size of your car battery and the speed of the charging point. With a 7kW charging point, it takes just under eight hours to fully charge an electric car with a 60kWh battery.

Kilowatt (kW) refers to the power rating of a home charge point. It's the maximum amount of power that can be drawn from the socket at any time. A 7kW home charger will charge your car three times faster than a three-pin plug.

In the UK, 3-7kW chargers are the most recommended popular choice. Some homes have a single-phase (AC) electricity supply and can support the additional 7kW load. Homes with a three-phase (AC) supply can use a more powerful charger of up to 22kW.  You always need to check with the installer that your fuse board has enough spare capacity to support the additional load of a home charging station.
