No driving experience and pleasure is possible without charging up your electric car. Charging BMW i electric car battery is no problem with BMW i charger installed at your home.
Of course, BMW i car can be charged with the standard charging cable at a conventional household 240-volt socket. But if you want maximum convenience and fast charging, BMW EVs owners have an option to install the BMW i Wallbox, a charging box developed specifically for home use. It can be mounted on the wall of any house and garage.
What is BMW i Wallbox
BMW i Wallbox is the charging device for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, developed to increase EV charging performance and reduce the charging time. With the wall box, charging your BMW i electric car becomes FAST, EASY, and SAFE. The BMW i Wallbox saves you about 4 hours of charging time and protects from technical risks that may be caused by car charging from a conventional socket.
Obviously, charging electric car at a domestic socket and having it plugged in DAILY for about 8-10 hours can’t be compared to charging a notebook or smartphone. The charging power of the electric car is huge, hence, energy flows needed to charge the car increase the leads temperature, thereby increasing the risk of cable melting or even burning. BMW i wall box prevents electrical system overloading by reducing the charging rate when there are energy consumption peaks at your household.
