I blame Greta
The occasional overnight use, yes, Long term, no.We have had the car a week now and used the 3 pin plug charger and not had a issue, charging over night this is enough for us don't think we will invest in a dedicated charger as we only have the car on lease for 2 years. Thoughts please !!!!
This is definitely the way to do it (if you don’t want an EV charge point), dedicated radial circuit off the Consumer Unit, preferably Type B RCD on that circuit, and EV rated socket.I charge my A250e from a dedicated outdoor 230v EV rated 3 pin socket. It's run on an individual radial circuit from my garage consumer unit, through a 32A relay and timer box.
Doing the charger free at the momentWelcome to the forum!
It's 5.5hrs to go from 10-100% on a typical wall socket, so charging overnight would be no issue.
If it's worth investing is a personal choice for a phev i'd say! If you'd prefer a dedicated charger, being able to charge in less time or might have another electric car, then a wallbox is worth it.
You can get the BP Chargemaster wallbox (7kw) through Mercedes at a lower price, but there's other options on the market too.
Infinitely better than a standard domestic 13A socket, this one won’t burst into flames or melt, and has that all important local Type A RCBO fitted (Type B is preferable).Does anyone have any feedback or experience with an external 3pun plug charging pod such as this one below.
