Date:2023/12/26 1:13:03

Electric vehicles are an increasingly popular choice for families, so installing charging posts at home to facilitate charging is also common and a phenomenon. However, choosing a suitable charging cable is crucial to the normal operation and safe charging of home charging posts. How to provide a suitable charging cable for home charging pile to ensure the charging effect and safety is something that charging equipment manufacturers should focus on.


First and foremost, choosing the proper cable type is crucial. Common types of home charging post cables include direct current fast charging cables (DC) and alternating current charging cables (AC). DC fast charging cables are suitable for rapid charging, with faster charging speeds for long trips or situations where fast charging is required. AC charging cables are suitable for everyday home charging, with slower but more stable charging speeds.


Next, consider the power and current carrying capacity of the cable. Different home chargers have different power outputs, so you need to choose cables that can withstand the corresponding power and current. Make sure the cable you choose can meet the maximum power output requirements of the home charging pile to avoid overloading or damaging the cable.


In addition, the length of the cable also needs to be considered. According to the installation location of the charging post and the parking location of the electric vehicle, choosing the right length of cable can facilitate charging and avoid the inconvenience caused by cable pulling or excessive length. It is recommended to choose a slightly longer cable to cope with different parking positions.


Finally, choose a cable that meets safety standards. Ensure that the cables you buy have passed relevant certifications and tests and meet national or regional safety standards. Choose cables with features such as waterproof, high temperature and abrasion resistance to improve service life and safety.
