Hardwired Chargers vs Plug-in Chargers


Our EV Charger installations are designed to give you the best option for charging your electric vehicle and staying future proofed. We offer hardwired charger installations as opposed to plug-in chargers. Read on to discover the difference between these two charging options.

Hardwired Chargers

Directly connected to your home’s electrical system, these chargers provide faster charging times and a dedicated charging station.


Faster charging speeds.

A more permanent solution that can increase property value.


Requires professional installation.

Less flexibility for relocation.

Plug-in Chargers

Plug in chargers come with the vehicle, and offer flexibility, allowing homeowners to use existing electrical outlets. Ideal for those who may relocate or prefer a non-permanent installation.



Easier installation.


Generally slower charging speeds compared to hardwired options.

The choice between plug-in and hardwired largely depends on your charging speed requirement, flexibility needs, and long-term plans.

Hardwired EV charger installations may take a few hours, depending on the complexity of the setup.

Currently, our focus is on residential installations. However, we are exploring commercial options. If you are interested in a commercial EV charger install, please get in touch for more information.

Ideally, yes. It’s much better to buy an EV charger with RCD installed already, regardless of whether your switchboard also has an RCD.
