Why Home Charger?

01. Efficient

It charges more quickly than a standard socket.

02. Safety

Prolonged charging may result in socket overheating; it’s advisable to choose certified chargers instead.

03. Cost Efficient

Charging your electric vehicle at home is more cost-effective compared to public charging. In Malaysia, the highest tariff rate is RM0.571/kWh, for instance, a full charge for a BYD extended range would cost RM34.53.

04. Convenient

Convenience at its finest: Arrive home, plug in, and your car is always ready whenever you need it.

05. Fast Charging

Fast charging more than 3X a month increases the battery degradation by 0.1% compared to drivers who abstain from fast charging entirely.

Which EV charger should I get?

Power Delivery:
Make sure your EV charger can provide at least 32 Amps of power, which translates to roughly 7.7 kW for single-phase charging or 22 kW for three-phase charging. We recommend this capacity because technology is advancing rapidly. Even if your current EV can’t fully utilize it, preparing now can save you from needing to replace your charger in the future.

Socket Type or Hardwired:
EV chargers come in two options: Socket Type and hardwired Plug Type. Socket Type chargers don’t have a built-in charging cable, allowing you to easily connect different plug types like Type 2 or Type 1 (common in Malaysia and the US), or Tesla’s unique plug type. You can also swap out the charging cable if needed.

On the other hand, Plug Type chargers have a fixed charging cable. If you need to use a different plug type, you’ll need a charging plug adapter.

Cable Length
EV chargers offer cables ranging from 12 to 25 feet in length. Choose a charging cable that can reach your car’s charging port from wherever you park. It’s best to go for a cable that’s at least 20 feet long.

Smart or Dumb
Smart EV chargers come with mobile apps that let you review charging sessions, monitor real-time charging progress, start or stop charging, set charging schedules, and even control the charger remotely. Dumb chargers, on the other hand, focus on the basic task of charging your EV, which is sufficient for most EV owners. They automatically stop when your battery is full.

Can my home handle 32A?

When considering the installation of an EV charger in your home, there’s no need to be concerned about voltage amperage. The majority of Malaysian households can support 32A, and some can even handle up to 60A. When you utilize our service, we will carefully select the appropriate charger for your home based on a thorough assessment of your power setup.

Additionally, it’s essential to keep in mind that if you are using a portable EV charger, Malaysian outlets are rated at 13A. Therefore, it is imperative to acquire a portable EV charger with a 13A rating.

Does my house have a single phase or 3-phase power supply?

You can easily determine using 1 of the methods listed below:

Method 1: Typically, this information is indicated on the power company’s meter. For instance, on the right-hand meter box, you’ll find the labels “3-phase-4-wire” and “380V, 3x220V,” indicating a three-phase power supply. Meanwhile, the left-hand meter displays “220V,” signifying a single-phase meter.

Method 2: You can directly inquire with your electricity provider (TNB).

Method 3: Examine your electrical switchboard. In the image on the left, you’ll notice a single switch (single-pole switch), whereas the image on the right features three switches (3-pole switch).

Alternatively, you can take a photograph and send it to us, and we can provide you with the answer.

Is my EV compatible with RExharge’s chargers?

They work with all types of electric vehicles.

Various countries use distinct Plug Types, such as Type 1 and Type 2. However, rest assured, if you inform us about your car model, we’ll provide guidance.

If you’re purchasing a used car that has been directly imported to Malaysia from another country, please share the export country and the specific electric vehicle model with us. We’ll choose the appropriate plug type for your needs.

Are the EV chargers designed to withstand outdoor weather conditions?
