The service from Power365 was amazing! From my initial query on their website all the way through to the installation of my new EV charger, I was extremely impressed.

Can I Charge My Car At Home?
You can buy a home charging point as this offers the best solution for charging your electric vehicle at home. It offers a faster and safer solution to charging your battery and offers the flexibility of charging your car battery overnight. You can use a standard 3-pin plug with an EVSE cable (electric vehicle supply equipment) to charge your car but this is not recommended as a permanent solution, this should be only used when no other option is available.
How Long Does It Take To Charge An Electric Car?
This all depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point. Charging can take anywhere between 30-minutes and 12-hours. A typical electric car with a 60kWh battery would take 8-hours to fully charge the car’s battery from empty to full when using a 7kWh charging point. The majority of electric car drivers never charge their battery from empty. They normally top up the batteries' power regularly which would speed up the charging process. This would mean hooking up the battery through the day when parked at work or a shopping centre or charging your car overnight. The majority of electric cars can be charged within 35-minutes with a 50kWh charging point to provide a range of up to 100-miles. As you can see, the bigger the battery and the slower the charging point is that you are using. The longer it will take to charge your car’s battery.
Driving Your Electric Vehicle
How Much Does A Journey In An EV Typically Cost?
This varies depending on the vehicle you drive, but in simple terms, the size of the battery (kWh) x electricity cost of your supplier (pence per kilowatt-hour) = cost to charge an electric car from empty to full.
How Far Can An EV Go On A Single Charge?
This varies and really depends on the vehicle you’re driving, how you drive it and the conditions you’re driving it in – just like a petrol or diesel vehicle. The distance a single charge can cover is increasing with every new model, as battery technology improves. Today, most electric cars will have a range of over 200 miles. Tesla models can go well over 300 miles on a single charge. There are many new electric cars in the automotive market in the UK, every year a new car brand will launch a brand new model or an updated model. Car manufacturers are constantly working on solving the issue of battery range. In the current electric car market, there are the following cars that are ranked by the longest range. Tesla Model S - 375-miles Tesla Model 3 - 348-miles Tesla Model X - 315-miles Jaguar I-Pace - 292-miles Kia eNiro - 282-miles Mercedes EQ C - 280-miles Hyundai Kona EV-279-miles Audi e-Tron - 249-miles Nissan LEAF e+ - 239-miles BMW i3 - 193-miles Renault Zoe - 186-miles Hyundai Ioniq - 174-miles
