This selection of Rolec EV (electric vehicle) charge points is not part of the OLEV (Office for Low Emission Vehicles) scheme. The OLEV scheme allows installers to claim up to 75% off the cost of the parts and installation on behalf of the end user. The Rolec OLEV registered versions are available here but are intended for OLEV installers.
The OLEVE scheme is a subsidised deal that the UK government is offering to help to kick-start the EV charging revolution.
These particular products are not OLEV registered and are aimed at users who don't meet the OLEV criteria or don't want to claim the 75% grant.
Rolec EV WallPod charge points offer an affordable solution for electric vehicle charging. The WallPod EV chargers are available in tethered or socketed versions and in 16A (3.6KW) or 32A (7.2KW) versions.
The modern looking and cost effective design has helped Rolec EV chargers become the go-to brand for the UK marketplace. Rolec have been the fastest manufacturer to react to this emerging market, and they're manufactured and designed right here in the UK.
The main difference between the output ratings is based on charging speeds, with the 3.6KW version charging in approximately 8 hours, which is recommended mainly for overnight charges. Compared with the 7.2KW version that charges around 90% of the battery in 3-4 hours.
The tethered versions come with a 5M cable and type 2 male connector fitted on the end. The non tethered versions come with a type 2 female socket and require additional cable sets (also known as cord sets) which are often supplied with the EV vehicle. Their are pros and cons to each version. The socket version allows you to insert different cable sets such as type 1 or type 2 which can make it a more universal charge point especially for commercial premises where more people will use it. Were as the tethered version is physically connected, like a petrol pump, so you're never going to lose the cable set or risk getting it taken.
These Rolec EV charges have the industry standard type 2 socket, with type 1 versions available on request. The worlds leading car manufacturers have adopted the type 2 connection system over type 1 and type 3 versions. Type 2 has won the battle and has been selected by the European Commission as the dedicated connector type for EV charging points and vehicle's.
These wall mounted EV charging stations are ideal for the family home or for light commercial use. For commercial use their are slightly different guidelines, the commercial scheme is called the WCS (workplace charge scheme).
