Domestic Charging Cable - A charging cable will often be made available for you to plug your EV into a standard three-pin wall socket and this is typically referred to as ‘trickle charging'.

Home Charging Station - A wall-mounted charge station is installed at your home, providing a much faster charge vs a normal ‘trickle charge’ wall socket.

Public Charge Point - These allow you to charge your vehicle much faster, delivering as much as 80% in just 30 minutes.
