With an increasing number of electric vehicles on the road, charging points are becoming a must-have for commercial buildings, petrol stations, car parks and new-build housing developments.

As experts in EV charging, we provide three main types of EV charge points available to home and business owners. These are categorised into rapid, fast, and slow chargers and represent the power output and charging speeds available to charge an EV.


Up to 3kW, slow chargers are most frequently installed at residential addresses where vehicles are likely to be parked overnight, taking on average of 6-12 hours to charge a pure-EV.


Fast chargers can achieve a fully charged electric vehicle in 3-4 hours, including those with a charging power from 7kW to 22kW. Fast chargers are usually installed in supermarkets or leisure centres and in places where vehicles are parked for an hour or more. You’ll need to remember your cable and often need to download an app to ‘pay as you go’ for the charge.


The fastest way to charge an EV, rapid chargers are often found in motorway services – they supply high power DC or AC current and can recharge a vehicle to 80% in under an hour. The cable is often tethered to the charging unit.
