Charging EV at home, how long does it take?

Electric vehicles charging levels and range

Home chargers come in different power levels, typically measured in kilowatts (kW). The higher the power level, the faster your EV will charge. Consider your daily driving habits and how much time you can dedicate to charging. Higher power levels may require special electrical infrastructure, so make sure your home can support it.

As a general guideline, it might take around 4 to 8 hours to fully charge an EV with a moderate-sized battery (around 60-70 kWh). However, this can vary widely depending on various factors like EV battery size, EV charging speed, EV battery state (partially filled or empty make a difference), quality and condition of the charging station, as well as the wiring in your home.

What are Level 1, 2, and 3 charging? Which one do I need?

Chargers, based on the EV charging type, present varying charging levels, indicating the rate of power delivered to the vehicle. While all EV chargers provide the same electricity, they may offer different rates or levels, with higher levels resulting in faster charging times.

To categorize these charging types, we have Level 1, 2, and 3 chargers:

  1. Level 1 EV Charger Type: This option is typically sufficient for individuals who infrequently drive their electric vehicles over short distances, such as less than 40 km per day. It has the same plugging as regular power point at home. It takes an overnight to charge a vehicle and suits those who can afford extended charging periods between drives.

  2. Level 2 EV Charger Type: Ideal for drivers who regularly use their electric vehicles, covering around 40 km a day, and can conveniently recharge at night at home. Level 2 chargers charge much fast than level 1 chargers. Unlike level 1 charger, it needs a plug or socket to charge. 

  3. Level 3 EV Charger Type – DC Fast Charging: Suited for individuals with frequent daily electric vehicle usage, exceeding 40 km, who prefer swift recharging at public charging stations. The cost differences a lot from level 1 and level 2 chargers which range from AUD$400-AUD$1800.

What type of charging plugs do I need for my home EV charger?

The type of charging plug you need for your home EV charger depends on the electric vehicle you own. There are several charging standards used globally, and different vehicles may use different connectors. The two main types of charging connectors are:

  1. Type 1 (J1772): Commonly used in North America and some parts of Asia. It is a slower-charging connector primarily used for Level 1 and Level 2 charging.

  2. Type 2 (IEC 62196-2 / Mennekes): Widely used in Europe and becoming more common in other regions. It supports both slow and fast charging.

  3. CHAdeMO: Primarily used by Japanese and some other Asian automakers.

  4. CCS (Combined Charging System): Commonly used in North America and Europe. It combines the AC charging (Type 1 or Type 2) with additional DC pins for fast charging.

What is OCPP? Do I need it for my EV charger?

OCPP stands for Open Charge Point Protocol. It is a communication protocol standard that enables interoperability between electric vehicle (EV) charging stations (charge points) and central management systems (CMS) or network operators.

OCPP enables remote monitoring and control of charging stations. This means that network operators or station owners can remotely start and stop charging sessions, check the status of stations, perform diagnostics, and update software without needing to be physically present at each station. OCPP support is most important in scenarios where you need advanced management, monitoring, billing, and interoperability features for your EV charging infrastructure. 

For personal home charging, OCPP facilitates the increasing demand of smart charging. EV charger owners can plan the charging time and hence avoid peak hour charging. For residential owner who has energy solution like solar panel and PV inverter, smart charging can further optimize energy consumption costs by controlling the charging sessions.
