Safety is an important reason for choosing to charge with a charging station. If a socket outlet is old, not properly grounded, or installed incorrectly, this can cause problems. Both in the home and to the car.
High power is required for charging a car. A socket may deliver a maximum of 9.6A. Almost all electric cars and plug-in hybrids require more current.
In addition, the charging time is an important factor. The car can be charged faster with a charging station.
Finally, a charging station is better for the battery. When half of the total charging time has elapsed, the battery is charged to 80%. The last 20% is loaded more slowly. This ensures that the battery has a longer life. This process is also known as "trickle charging" or "drip charging".
