Points to consider when choosing an EV Charger

With the market rapidly expanding, it can be hard to know where to start when choosing the right charger for your EV. Here’s a few points to consider when picking your charger.

1. Budget

It is important to have a budget in mind before looking at any chargers. The price of a charger can range anywhere between £400 and £2500 and that’s without the cost of installation. However there are incentives to consider when setting your budget, such as the OLEV grant. Having a clear budget in mind will help you to narrow down your search.

2. Size

Electric Car Chargers come in all shapes and sizes. It is important to measure where you will want to install the charger to make sure that you have enough room. There’s nothing worse then buying something to then find out it doesn’t fit.

3. Connection Type

There are two types of connections for Electric Cars, Type 1 and Type 2. Its is very important you know which type of connection your car has. It is also important to know whether you want a tethered charger or a socket charger. A tethered charger has the cable connected whereas a socket charger is just a socket and you will need to provide the charging cable.

Hopefully these points will help you to decide which charger is right for you. You can view our range of chargers and accessories here: https://megaev.co.uk/shop/ or if you still feel that you need a bit more advice, don’t hesitate to call us and we can help find your ideal charger.
