We are registered EV charger installers
In Ireland, electric car sales have been growing steadily over the last few years. This is the result of a combination of things, such as an increase in public concern over the environment. Furthermore, the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has had little to no effect on the sales of electric cars here in Ireland. In contrast, a recent article published in The Irish Times suggests that following the pandemic, sales of electric cars here in Ireland may well rise at an even quicker rate than prior to the pandemic.
The increased popularity of electric cars has brought with it a number of new problems which Irish car owners must now face. Over the course of this blog, we plan on answering some of these common questions.
Can you charge your electric car at home?
- Yes, you can. In fact, charging your electric car at home is an extremely easy process. However, charging your electric car using a regular plug will typically be quite inconvenient. While they will charge your electric car, standard household plug sockets are not designed to provide high levels of power for such an extended length of time. Thankfully, here at Custom Wired Electrical, we can expertly install elegant, high-performance electric car chargers, specifically designed for your home. To learn more, simply click here.
How much does it cost to install an electric car charger at home?
- As with most products or services, the costs involved with installing an electric car charger at home can vary. However, the long-term cost benefits of owning and driving an electric vehicle hugely outweigh the initial costs of installing an electric vehicle charger at your home.

Should I charge my electric car every night?
We would recommend against charging your electric vehicle every night. In some cases, charging your car battery too frequently can often shorten the lifespan of your battery. As well as this, more often than not you will simply not need to charge your battery for that long since you probably won’t be driving for that long!
How long does it take to charge an electric car?
Again, the answer to this question varies from vehicle to vehicle. The good news however is that improvements in rapid charging technology mean that the days of waiting hours upon hours for your vehicle to charge are long gone. Despite this good news, the time it takes for your vehicle to charge will depend upon a number of factors such as the size of your car battery, and the power of the charging station you are using.
