Top Frequently Asked Questions

Charging speed depends greatly on the vehicle’s battery design. However, the average charging speed with DC chargers:

  • 60kW=300-400 km/hr
  • 90kW=500-600km/hr
  • 120kW=650-800km/hr
  • 150kW=850-1000km/hr

EVs can draw up only a certain kW. It depends on the car itself, most of the cars available today are only drawing up to 11kW but the EV chargers we have can be up to 22kW for future purposes.

AC charging utilises the on-board AC to DC power converter that is connected to your EV battery to charge your car. AC EV chargers require an adapter connection to a distribution board in order to charge your car

  • Available in single-phase and 3-phase charging
  • More cost-effective solutions

DC Charging performs AC to DC power conversion outside of the EV.

  • Units are much larger due to housing a much larger AC-DC power converter than the converter in your car
  • Greater charging range and capacity (20kWh-150kWh)
  • Charging times are much faster than AC charging
  • DC Charging leads connect directly to your battery
  • A Tethered charger has a permanently attached charging cable. Whereas a Universal charger will require a detached charging cable (sold separately).
  • A tethered charger has a fixed-length cable of 6 meters. The length of this cable can not be adjusted.


The main difference between 7kW and 22kW is the charging speeds and how many lines of power are routed to each.

7kW is our single phase charger. It charges slower than 22kW but most homes will require this charger due to the power available through the switchboard. 

22kW is our three phase charger. Three phase chargers have the capability to charge at a faster rate than the single phase, however installing in the home is not available to everyone as this requires existing three-phase power setup. The design of the vehicle will determine how much power can be drawn from the charger regardless of how fast the AC charger is.

Charging speed depends greatly on the vehicle’s battery design as every car model charges at a different rate. However, the average charging speed with  AC chargers are:

7kW = 40 – 50 km/hr

22kW = 120 – 140km/hr

The Ocular LTE is our standard home charger for people who are looking for a simple charging solution at home. In comparison, the LTE Plus features a Bluetooth app, giving you control over your charging sessions through remote Bluetooth connectivity (within 30m). The app also allows you to schedule your charging times, and track & monitor energy usage per session, with the ability to export data and view a historical list of charging sessions. You can also monitor your energy use with your home charger in real-time via the app as well as review your energy trends and determine a charging schedule that aligns with off-peak periods or solar.
