Our definition of Home Charging is for Electrical Car such as PHEV and BEV, where the charging is focused on personal use and not open for public and commercialisation. So lets say if someone named Kray decided to purchase a new BMW 330E, which is also the best selling Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) in the market nowaday. Kray is going to need a charger to charge his Electrical Car, for a PHEV, he could only charge with maximum 3.5kw Type 2 Charger, so even giving Kray a charger up to 7kw or 11kw, Kray will not be able to enjoy that much higher charging power. Plus, a slow charging could extend and protect the battery lifespan of Kray’ beloved PHEV.
Kray just need 2.5hours per day to fully charge his BMW, and after that it will cover a mileage of 50-100km, in considered with the electric cost of only RM0.3 for household bill, and 3.5kw is only 1 ringgit, then 2.5 hour is equivalent to RM2.5 for a mileage of 50km of mileage is a very very good bargain for Kray, saving his cost on petrol tremendously.
Another reason to use Powered by RISE home charging, is that we come with the apps to monitor and tell the user how much electricity had been used on a daily and monthly basis, so users could monitor and examine the efficiency. Powered by RISE EV Charger can cover and charge all types of PHEV and even including BEV.
In another scenario, let’s say now Kray is getting richer and decided to buy a BEV, which is a Porsche Taycan. Taycan has a bigger battery bank and will need a faster charging bank. If Kray already has the model of current Home Charger that uses for his BMW PHEV, the same charger could also be used to charge his Taycan. An overnight charge with the same charger will be enough to full charge the Taycan as well. But if Kray decided for higher charging capacity, Kray could always purchase from Powered by RISE the 7kw, 11kw or 22kw Home Charger. That could hasten the charging process. But Kray should always understand that DC and Fast Charging is available, but it’s a lifeline and emergency use only, because every BEV rider knows that using fast charge will damage the battery lifespan, and BEV battery is “extremely expensive”. So most of the time, except when Kray is on a long journey or outside a petrol station, he will always choose to charge with Slow Charging. Home charging is the key priority to Kray.
Battery degradation appears to be strongly correlated with the use of DC chargers for vehicles in seasonal or hot climates. Compared to EVs that don’t use fast charging at all, vehicles that primarily do use it show a battery deterioration by nearly 0.1%.
So three takeaway is :
- We should limit the use of commercial fast chargers and juice up with Level 2 when available
- We should recharge our EV before it gets totally empty
- And we shouldn’t overcharge
Upgradeable to become commercial charging
That means, Powered by RISE Home Charger is actually suitable to use in many spots, including office and factory parking areas, or even open car parks. Another interesting fact about Powered by RISE, if Kray decided that he wish to provide his charger for other people to charge as well, and he could earn the extra revenue, Powered by RISE provide the services of upgrade the charger to link with Powered by RISE platform and apps. So every charger that fulfils the requirement, even the charger that is not coming from Powered by RISE, could be used to earn extra revenue. It’s like everyone could own a mini small petrol station with a price that is less than RM5,000.
In our next venture, we are even developing the first stainless steel home charger, that is vandal proof, hardcore and sustain to all kind of weather. Stay tuned to our next update.
