You can charge your vehicle at home at a range of speeds depending on the power source and output of the charger. Starting from the lowest output, these typically include: Three-pin plug (2.3kW) = very slow home charge point (7.4kW) = fast home charge point (up to 22kW) = fast
A 22kW charger is the fastest charger you can get for the home, but to achieve this the charge point will need to be three-phase compatible and use what’s called a three-phase electricity supply. In addition, the car itself will need to be able to accept 22kW. To charge a vehicle at 11kW or higher (such as 22kW), your property will need to have a three-phase electricity supply. Most residential properties in the UK operate on a single-phase supply and therefore cannot make use of a three-phase 22kW charger.
