What are the benefits of using a charge point instead of a regular 3-pin plug?

  • Safer Charging -‘Mode 3’ charging allows your electric vehicle to communicate with the charge point, instructing it to turn off the power when your car is fully charged.
  • Faster Charging – charge point will allow you to charge your vehicle significantly faster. For example, a Nissan Leaf will take up 12 hours to recharge its battery using a standard household socket. A Leaf with a standard 3.3kW on-board charger will take approximately 8 hours using a home charge point. A Leaf with the 6.6kW upgraded on-board charger will take just 4 hours to achieve a 100% charge.
