Keeping the driver in mind.
We build our electric vehicle charging stations around the driver. With our fully lit, 24/7 security forecourt canopy design to protect your session from the weather, and our reliable and easy-to-use charging points, we make the EV experience as easy and as safe as possible.
By 2030, all new production cars will be fully electric, working towards the government’s universal net zero objectives.
The Giga Power 7kW EV charging model for charging throughout the day, ideal for the workplace or an all day car parking, as an example.
The Giga Power 22kW tethered EV charger is perfect for shorter stays, where the driver will charge in 1-2 hours, perfect for shops and leisure.
The Giga Power 22kW to 43kW EV charger is most used at public charging stations, where drivers need to charge as fast as possible to move on.
How long does it take to charge an electric car?
The amount of time it takes to charge an electric car depends on the type of charger used, the capacity of its battery, and the car model. Generally speaking, plugging into a standard 3 pin plug socket (known as a Level 1 charger) a car will take anything up to 12 hours to charge.
This is okay if a driver wants to charge overnight at home, but not suitable for any day time scenarios. Most electric vehicle manufacturers recommend charging a car to 80%. Charging between 80% and 100% takes longer, as the car will preserve its battery life by drawing power slower between these levels.
How long does a 7kW charger take to charge an electric car?
It depends on the type of charger and the car’s battery size. Generally, it can take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours to charge an electric car up to 80%.
How long does a 22kW charger take to charge an electric car?
Again, it will depend on the type of charger used and the car’s battery. But a 22kW charger would typically take around 2 to 4 hours to charge an electric car to 80%.
How long does a 43kW charger take to charge an electric car?
Some cars won’t be able to draw as much as 43kW, but those that do, it will take 30 to 60 minutes to charge a battery to 80%.
