Charging your EV at Home

How much does it cost to charge an Electric Vehicle at home?

This depends on your current electricity plan unit rates and the size of the battery. Using the Nissan Leaf (40kWh battery) with a driving range of 270km as an example. If you have a standard 24 hour electricity meter it will cost about €12 to charge from 20-100%. If you have a smart electricity meter, it will cost as little as €5.50 when using the Electric Ireland Night Boost plan. Costs are estimated and based on prices as of 1st October 2022.

How long does it take to charge an Electric Vehicle at home?

This depends on size of the battery in your car and the current level of battery. The Sync EV Home Charger at speeds up to 7.4kW. The below examples assume you are charging your battery from 20% to 100%.

Nissan Leaf (40kWh battery): 4 hours 35 minutes

Kia Niro EV (64kWh battery: 7 hours 20 minutes

Volkswagen ID4 (77kWh battery): 8 hours 50 minutes

Why choose a Home Charger over standard 3 pin plug?

Dedicated Home Charger is a faster, smarter and safer way of charging your EV at home. The Sync EV home charger included in this offer will charge up 3 times faster than a standard 3 pin plug. Speed of charging becomes an important consideration when we want to maximise lower electricity rates during certain times overnight. Home Chargers are specifically designed to handle EV charging electrical loads and all installs must meet strict Electrical Regulations as set by Safe Electric.

Why does my maximum range change after fully charging at home?

Your EV onboard computer continuously calculates your driving range based on the below:

  • Weather: Range will reduce during colder weather and increase during warmer months
  • Driving style: As with other vehicles, the smoother and slower you drive the more efficient the car becomes i.e. increases range.
  • Driving speed: Driving at motorway speeds will use more battery than driving same distance at lower speeds.
EV Preconditioning

Preconditioning is a clever feature in many new EVs on sale today. While the EV is plugged to your home (whether it is charging or not), it can warm up the interior of your EV using mains electricity. This then means that once you begin driving your EV, you will not waste battery on heating the car. This is especially useful in colder Winter months.
