Electric car charging cable
Electric cars draw their energy from large batteries with accumulators. These must be regularly charged at a charging station so that the electric vehicle can reach its full range. There are public charging stations similar to gas stations, semi-public charging stations in parking garages, for example, or private charging stations in the garage at home. Since charging times are relatively long and the public network is currently still poorly developed, most electric car users have a private charging station. There are several points to consider when making a purchase decision. The output power (described in kW, W or kilo-,watt) measures the charging power. Basically, the higher the power, the faster the charging. However, it must first be checked whether the available power grid can also provide the power. The connection type provides information about compatibility with the domestic socket. Among the best-selling brands are solutions from Swiss manufacturers Juice Technologies and Green Motion. When installing charging stations, it is advisable to clarify the situation in advance with the property owners and an electrical expert.
