Slow Electric Vehicle Chargers

slow electric vehicle chargersslow electric vehicle chargersSlow electric vehicle chargers are the most common method of charging electric vehicles using a standard single-phase 13 Amp three-pin plug (BS 1363) and draws 3 kW of power – with a full charge typically taking 6 to 8 hours. The vast majority of public accessible on-street chargers currently use this charger type, but more advanced alternatives are being developed (see below).

Nearly all electric models can be slow charged with each vehicles being supplied with a charging cable with the appropriate connectors – in this case with a standard three-pin plug or Blue Commando connector (IEC 60309) at the charging point end, and either a Commando unit or the more modern gun shaped SAE J1772 socket for connection to the vehicle.
