An Electric Vehicle Charger, also known as an EV charger, is a device that allows you to charge your electric vehicle at home, providing a convenient and efficient way to recharge your vehicle. With an EV charger at home, you can plug into your car whenever convenient, negating reliance on often-unreliable public charging points. Having an EV charger at home can also save you money, as charging your vehicle at home is usually cheaper than public charging stations, allowing you to maximise the cost savings and efficiency of owning an electric car.
If you own an electric vehicle or plan to buy one, having an EV charger at home is highly recommended. While some electric cars come with a portable charger to plug into a regular electrical outlet, an EV charger offers several advantages:
EV chargers provide faster charging speeds compared to a standard household electrical outlet. This means you can charge your electric vehicle more quickly, allowing more convenience and flexibility.
EV chargers are designed to provide safe and efficient charging for your electric vehicle’s battery. They have built-in safety features, such as temperature monitoring and automatic shut-off, ensuring optimal performance and reducing the risk of overcharging.
An EV charger is tailored to work with your specific electric vehicle and its charging requirements. With different charging levels and connector types available, you can find an EV charger that suits your needs and offers compatibility with various electric vehicle models.
A few different types of EV chargers are available, allowing you to choose the one that best fits your charging needs and budget. The most common types include:
Rapid chargers, also known as DC fast chargers, provide the fastest charging speeds. These chargers can charge your electric vehicle up to 80% in a short amount of time, making them ideal for long-distance travel or when you need a quick charge on the go.
Fast chargers, also known as Level 2 chargers, offer a faster charging speed than a standard electrical outlet. These chargers are typically installed at your home or workplace and provide a convenient way to charge your electric vehicle overnight or during the day.
EV chargers can come in either a tethered or untethered configuration. Tethered chargers have a built-in cable permanently attached to the charging unit, while untethered chargers require you to use your own charging cable. The choice between tethered and untethered depends on your preference and convenience.
We offer a variety of EV chargers from top brands such as SolaX, GivEnergy, and Zappi. SolaX provides a range of charging stations that are efficient and reliable, ensuring a fast and safe charging experience.
GivEnergy chargers are known for their innovative features, including smart charging capabilities and compatibility with renewable energy sources. Zappi chargers are designed with sustainability in mind, offering intelligent charging options that prioritise the use of excess solar power.
With these brands, we provide a wide selection of EV chargers to suit different preferences and requirements.
Having an EV charger installed at your home offers numerous benefits:
With an EV charger at home, you can conveniently charge your electric vehicle overnight or whenever convenient—no more trips to public charging stations or queuing for an available charger.
Charging your electric vehicle at home using an EV charger is generally more cost-effective than relying solely on public charging stations. Take advantage of lower electricity rates during off-peak hours to save on your charging costs.
By pairing your EV charger with a solar power system, you can power your electric vehicle using clean and renewable energy. Maximise the use of solar power and reduce your carbon footprint.

At Prime Time Solar, we offer affordable and competitive pricing on all our EV chargers, and our experts can assist you in selecting a charger that fits your budget and charging needs.
The time it takes to charge an electric vehicle depends on the power level of the charger, the battery size of the car, and the state of charge. Rapid chargers can charge up to 80% in less than 30 minutes, while fast chargers may take a few hours. It’s important to note that charging time may also depend on the electric vehicle’s specifications.
EV chargers come with different charging connectors, so ensuring the charger is compatible with your electric vehicle’s specifications is important. However, some universal chargers can work with different brands of electric cars.
Yes, charging an electric vehicle requires a dedicated electrical circuit to handle the power output. A professional electrician can assess your home’s electrical system and determine the optimal placement for the EV charger and the necessary electrical requirements.
EV chargers are designed to be low-maintenance and come with manufacturer warranties. However, it’s important to ensure that the charger is kept clean and free of debris and that the electrical connections are safe and secure.

Thank you everyone at Prime Time Solar for such excellent and very knowledgeable service throughout the whole process of the Solar Panels, from the quote to commissioning the system on installation. I have never received such service like this from any company before, well done and keep up the good work.
The installation was completed within a day and the App setup for us on our phone and time was taken to explain everything to us about the system. very reassuring.
After installation I received an email with a link to their website portal this enabled me to download all the relevant paperwork, from this I was able to sign up to an energy company to sell my excess solar power, shop around as prices vary from 2p kWh to 15p kWh.
I can highly recommend this company to anyone considering having solar panels installed. It’s not very often I say this but I am impressed with this company.
Having had some poor experiences with other companies I was lucky to find Prime Time Solar. Special thanks to Nathan and Conor. Thanks again everyone.
Very professional and reliable service was provided to me with all the work completed in high quality. Peter was flexible in creating PV/ Solar panel unit, meeting to our needs and specifications, the price was competitive as well.
Connor, did a brilliant work in completing the installation. I highly recommend their service with no hesitation. I wish them all the very best.

The team were great to speak to and gave honest advise. The quote was accurate and I didn't have any unprecedented costs. The team were as tidy as possible on the day and were prompt with their timekeeping and communicated throughout the process.
It was a competitive quotation and the work was completed satisfactorily. The reason I gave them a 5star review is that they were the only company (out of 7 quotations) that listened to what I wanted and provided me with as near a match as possible.
The whole installation process was completed and signed off with some very helpful guys doing the work. It turned out that I had room for one more solar panel than was originally planned for and they had no problem in accommodating the change of order.
Also, I raised a slight problem (as I saw it) with two of the panels and their fixings, but I did a bit of DIY and fixed that without any hassle making the changes, or from the engineer- who had the option of objecting, but didn't - and congratulated me on the DIY fix.
I like employing people who listen to common-sense alternatives and don't put obstacles in the way of changing things for the better. I would definitely recommend the solar panel section of this company. I cannot comment on the boiler side, except to say that all contacts were initially made through them, and I found them to be both friendly and helpful.
