In comparision to many competitors, the company prioritized long-term R&D capability.
Their product line includes a portable charger, an AC charger, a DC charger, and a cloud platform for smart charging services. EN+ was recognized as the “annual most valuable investment worth new star enterprise in optical energy storage and charging industry.” The award fully validated EN+ Tech’s strategic deployment in the charging station field, as well as its achievements in product innovation and marketing collaboration in the previous year.
Following the example of Pod Point in the UK, EN Plus aims to be the preferred choice of Electric Vehicle chargers and Europe. We are proud to integrate EN Plus products into our global supply chain structure. As a result, wholesale purchasers benefit from a paticularly low DC fast charger price, as our EV quick chargers come directly from the factory.
DC Fast Chargers Explained
DC fast chargers convert AC to DC power within the device. Thus, onboard car battery chargers do not need to convert incoming power. This way, a DC fast charger bypasses the on-board charger by feeding DC power directly to the battery. As a result, DC chargers allow for a faster charging speed.
Fast or rapid chargers are the preferred choice for commercial providers because they offer 60-200 miles of range in 20-30 minutes. In most European countries, it has become a legal requirement for all major gas stations and motorway services to provide quick charging stations for long distance drivers.
DC Fast Charger Cost
DC fast charging costs can vary greatly, depending on the vehicle and electricity tariff. When calculating the cost of electric vehicle charging, one needs to think in kilowatt hours (kWh) as opposed to litres. A kWh is a standard measure of energy used by energy suppliers and refers to a person using 1,000 watts of electricity for one hour. So, first and foremost, local electricity prices should be the main factor when determining the cost of DC fast charging.
DC Charge Point Installation Cost
DC fast chargers are usually the largest and most sophisticated EV charging devices. Therefore, it is generally more expensive to install and operate than EV home chargers.
The total cost of having a fast EV charger installed ranges from €28,000 (£23,800) to €140,000 (£119,000). However, the exact costs vary from place to place and mostly depend on the size of the installation. Furthermore, businesses in most European countries can get government grants. Schemes like the OZEV grant in the UK reduce the installation cost by up to 75%.

Using DC Fast Charger at Home
A 150 kw DC fast charger can fully charge an EV with average battery size in less than 30 minutes. However, it usually isn’t worth using fast charging at home every day. Alternatively, we recommend to make use of slower AC charging at night with a home charging point. Conversely, it is better to use rapid charging only when on the road at a public charge point or car park.
Furthermore, the increased electricity flow puts extra strain on electric car batteries. Generally, excessive charging will reduce EV battery lifespan.
INFO: For charging speeds of 11kW or more, your home must have a three-phase power supply. However, most homes in the UK are only equipped with single-phase power, which is they can’t use three-phase chargers. You can apply for a three-phase upgrade through your grid operator, but this is very expensive, costing between £3,000 and £15,000.
With companies being incentivised to reduce their CO2 emissions, workplace charging can go a long way to helping companies transition to 100% renewable electricity. In addition, workplace EV charging provides a convenient way to refuel during the day. Thus, it offers a good alternative to a public charging or commercial electric car charger for employees.
Workplaces with an on-site car charging point can help increase interest, understanding and acceptance of electric vehicles in their companies. Retail businesses can also attract more potential customers this way. For example, many fast food restaurants offer free charging for EV drivers who order food and drink.
In spite of low product prices, DC fast charger installation cost can be quite high depending on project size. Our globally branched supply network eiminates any unnecessary costs and directly connects with approved installer services on-site throughout Europe.
Our DC fast charger solutions can achieve signifcant reductions in service cost. Furthermore, we will take care of application processes for eligible DC fast charger grants.
DC Fast Chargers FAQ
What Is the Difference Between a ‘Rapid’, a ‘Fast’ and a ‘Ultra Rapid’ Charger?
These classifications refer to charger output in kW. Devices from 7-22 kW are classified as fast chargers while rapid chargers have 50 kW upwards. High-capacity chargers, the fastest type of EV charger have an output of 150 kW upwards and can charge EVs in as few as 10 minutes.
How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car?
While it only takes a few minutes to fill up petrol, the time it takes an electric car to go from flat to full charge is much longer. However, it can also be more convenient. Usually, electric cars are charged when the car is not in use, e.g. overnight at home, as with a mobile phone, or during the day while at work. The way we charge or need to charge will also change – with petrol, most people drive until the fuel gauge shows a low level and we fill up the tank again.
This behaviour stems from the inconvenience of having to visit a petrol station. With electric cars and the ability to charge them at home, people may charge the battery every day when it is needed instead of waiting until it is empty – similar to a mobile phone. Another factor that can affect how often you need to charge your electric car or van is temperature.
Lithium-ion batteries are more powerful in warm weather, so the range of your electric car may be slightly reduced in the cold winter months. So how long it takes to charge an electric car depends on the following factors:
- EV battery size
- Mileage between charges
- Charging behaviour
- Power rating of the charger
What is the EVHS Grant?
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme ( EVHS ) is a UK government grant that provides a 75% contribution to the cost of a charging unit and installation cost combined. It allows works customers to choose an EVHS installer to install their chargepoint. After checking that the customer and charging unit qualify for the grant, the installer that they applies on the customer’s behalf.
