7.4kW EV Home Charge

7.4kW is the common single phase charger for at home use. The 32A (7.4kW) is similar to a ring main or electric shower. Suitable for most home electricity supplies because the 7.4kW will use a 32A circuit. No modifications are usually required to the incoming 100A supply for the EV home slow-charger.

This slow charging is best for preserving battery longevity and ideal for an overnight charge. A typical 7.4kW charge is 9 hours, but this will all depend on the battery capacity and how much charge it needs. The Optimus smart charger won't overcharge or waste electricity while charging the car batteries. It has an internal computer control to optimally charge the batteries. With the alexa integration and dedicated app means you can monitor the charging progress from the comfort of your home.
