With the deepening of the concept of environmental protection, most families may own an electric car. You love driving your electric vehicle, but probably do not like having to search for or waiting at a public charging station. You’ve probably want to install an EV charger at home but aren’t completely sure what all the benefits would be. For a homeowner, the value of an EV charger installation and having the freedom to charge at home increases daily!
According to reports, an estimated 80% of EV drivers charge their vehicles at home, often overnight. People who install electric vehicle charging stations at home are used to charging their cars at night, just like they charge their phones. You don’t need a car (or phone) while you’re sleeping, so you can take advantage of your downtime and know you’ll be fully prepared in the morning. Plus, opting to have an EV charging station in your home saves you the time of going to a public charging station and waiting—sometimes hours—while an EV has more than enough range to meet your needs.
No installation of Zencar EV charger is required, just an intuitive pairing process. Plug and charge, wherever you are, just with a household socket.
Charging at home saving your cost.
When gas prices averaged $3.50 a gallon, driving an EV was already cheaper per mile than running on gas. However, to keep costs down, most people install an EV charging station at home and use it overnight when electricity rates are lower. In contrast, those who use public charging stations typically use more expensive electricity during the day.
With Delay start timer, Zencar EV charger make you benefit from off-peak rates of electricity.

In addition to recovering their electricity bills, public charging station owners, like all businesses, factor their overhead into their prices.. These costs include rent or mortgage payments, ev charging station costs, maintenance and profits. Even free public charging stations at malls, restaurants, and other venues take time, and you’ll likely spend money inside.
Sites with Level 3 DC fast charging stations charge an additional fee for their use. Part of this is cost based, as these chargers cost much more than Level 2 chargers. Level 3 EV charging station installations often require property upgrades to facilitate their 400-V to 900-V DC connections. Plus, you’ll pay extra to be able to charge your car in about 30 minutes. Level 3 charging costs approximately 25% to 40% more than Level 2 charging.
Zencar EV charger make it charge fast at home.
Home charge point
3.6kW – Slow
Home charge point
7.4kW – Fast (Recommended)
Home charge point
up to 22kW – Fast
All Level 2 chargers use 240V, but charging speed will differ based on a charger’s amperage, or electrical current. Your need for speed will vary based on your EV’s range, your commute and driving style: a car with less range, a long commute or always driving at top speed may mean you could benefit from a faster charge at home. Most EVs can take in about 32 amps, adding around 25 miles of Range Per Hour of charging, so a 32-amp charging station is a good choice for many vehicles.
The time it takes to charge an electric car can be as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. This depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the EV charger.
A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW EV charger.
22kw is about three times faster than the standard wall mounted EV chargers, which are rated at 7kW. In other words, a typical home charge point can provide up to 30 miles of range per hour whereas 22kW can offer up to 90 miles of range per hour.
Most drivers top up charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full.
The bigger your car’s battery and the slower the charging point, the longer it takes to charge from empty to full.
Zencar EV charger make charging process clear.
Every version of Zencar EV charger is LCD screen, showing the real-time charging data.
12 Protection make you enjoy safe charging at home.
6mA RCD module detects DC currents flowing in an AC system. For example , in electric vehicle charging station,DC currents flowing in an AC system may cause a Type A RCD to be blinded. This RCD module can be used to detect any DC currents level above 6mA and its output can be used to operate a relay or contactor to disconnect the AC supply and prevent blinding of the upstream A type RCD.
According to standard GB/T 187487.1, the leakage protector of the charger should use type B or type A,in addition to the AC leakage protection, but also to pulase DC protection.
The biggest difference between type B and type A is that type B increase the protection of DC leakage. The biggest harm of DC leakage does not lie in the human body, but in potential failure of the original leakage protection devices.
Circuit Board Temp Sensor
The temperature sensor is used to monitor the temperature of the charger to ensure the safety and reliability. Zencar EV charger will be equipped with a temperature sensor in PCB. When it detects that the temperature of the charger is greater than 70°C, the charger will automatically reduce the current. When the temperature is higher than 85°C, the charger will automatically stop charging. When the temperature drops to 75°C, it will automatically resume charging.
Some manufacturers use cheap temperature sensors in order to save costs and lower prices, even make charger without temperature sensors, then charger cannot accurately monitor the temperature, which may cause the charger to overheat, thus affecting the safety and security.
At present, some countries mandate that the charger must have a grounding protection function, to prevent electric shock accidents caused by the internal insulation of the charger being damaged and the shell charged. The charging power of the electric vehicle itself is very high, if there is no ground wire, it is easy to cause a short circuit or electric shock.
When Zencar EV charger cannot detect the ground wire, the fault light of charger will flash automatically, there will be an error code on the screen, and it will not be able to work normally. General sockets do not have a ground wire, so there is a high probability that EV charger will not be able to work. So without a ground wire, it really can’t be charged? In fact, it is not impossible! Our charger can manually turn off the ground protection function, so that the charger can be working normally with socket with no ground wire. Please consult our sales staff for the specific method. However, in order to ensure safe electricity use, we do not recommend turning off the ground protection function.
