Why of all things this charging station
for the e-car at home?
What we are often asked
Charging station or earthed socket for the e-car?
With the wallbox you charge more safely
At first you might ask yourself: isn't a household socket enough for regular charging of my electric or hybrid vehicle? Well, the normal socket is not recommended. We are not writing this now out of opportunistic motives. The ADAC also argues that normal sockets are not suitable for long charging under high load. In fact, they are only designed for a continuous load of up to 10 amps and can charge at a maximum of 2.3 kW.
In the worst case, overheating and a cable fire can occur, which not only costs a lot of money, but also a lot of nerves. You can be as safe as possible with a wallbox that has been professionally installed by a qualified electrician and meets the highest quality and safety standards.
This does not mean that it is not possible to charge the electric car or hybrid vehicle at a three-phase socket (red CEE plug, 400 V, max. 32 A) or at a household socket (safety plug, 230 V, 10 A). However, it is important that the charging cable has certain communication and protection functions. The so-called cable with ICCB (In-Cable-Control-Box).
With the wallbox you charge faster
Thanks to the high charging power of 11 kW, which is achieved thanks to a three-phase connection, you can charge your electric or hybrid vehicle much faster with a charging station than at the household socket. This gives you flexibility in everyday life and you can always be sure that you will get to your destination without any problems. We are often asked whether 11 kW or 22 kW wallboxes are better. We can assure you: The 11 kW is perfectly sufficient, because hardly any electric car can charge AC with 22 kW. Our expert Christian explains more about this here.
With the wallbox you charge more efficiently
Charging via a permanently connected wallbox is more efficient and energy-saving than via plug-in charging sets. With a commonly occurring contact resistance of 0.1 Ω at a socket, a charging current of 10 A at the socket results in a power loss of up to 10 W. This is more than a TV set needs in standby mode. This is more than a TV set requires in standby mode. Charging via the permanently connected charging station therefore protects the environment and your wallet.
Frequently asked questions
No, this is not allowed. We ask you to contact a qualified electrician for the installation. This person is then also liable for the professional installation and reports this to the network operator.
