Electric Vehicle Charging Safety Tips

Are you thinking of buying an electric vehicle (EV)?

Here are some precautions you may take to reduce the danger of electric shock and fire while charging electric vehicles:

Have a licensed electrician install the following before purchasing an electric vehicle:

  • a fresh, exclusive circuit for your Electric Vehicle charging apparatus. It may not be possible to use electric vehicle supply equipment with older home wiring.
  • Devices that support Level II charging (if that is your preferred way).

Charging Electric Vehicle:

  • Pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions when charging your car. If you require further information, speak with your nearby dealer.
  • Invest in a charging gadget that has been approved by a reputable testing facility in your country.
  • Connect Level I Electric Vehicle chargers directly to an outlet made to accommodate the charging device's amperage. Never use an extension cord or multiplug adaptor.
  • Along with the charging unit, install a residual current device. If a malfunction is found, it will shut off the power to help avoid a fire.
  • When not in use, keep all parts of charging devices away from kids.
  • Follow the manufacturer's maintenance recommendations while caring for the components of your charging station. A possible shock danger may be indicated by signs of excessive wear. Never use an electric vehicle charger that is clearly damaged.
  • To prevent water from accessing the Electric Vehicle charging station outlet, cover it. For information on whether it is safe to charge your Electric Vehicle in damp weather, consult the manufacturer's instructions.
As long as you use approved equipment, charging an Electric Vehicle is secure. By using these suggestions, you can reduce your risk of suffering an electric shock or a related fire.
