Director will ban electric car owners from using these plugs

A charging operator wants to ban electric car owners from charging their electric cars via ordinary sockets. However, the proposal faces fierce criticism.

The company Zaptec, which sells charging solutions for electric cars, wants to ban private individuals from using ordinary sockets to charge electric cars.

In a debate article that Göteborgs-Posten has published, Axel Philipson, the director of the company's Swedish department, writes that it is connected to the fire hazard.

In fact, such a ban is "absolutely essential", writes Axel Philipson. The Swedish safety authorities also recommend that electric car owners let the current flow through charging boxes and into the cars.

But a ban is an insane thing to propose, believes a Swedish professor. In any case, it has no connection with reality.

– It is completely insane, it is not factual. It is clear that this is a way to sell charging boxes. It is peasant capture at a high level, says Mats Leijon, who is professor of electricity theory at Uppsala University, to Vibilagare .

According to Leijon, there is nothing to prevent charging an electric car from an ordinary socket, as long as the installation behind it is in order.

But charging via a regular socket can actually be a problem. In the USA, for example, Audi has had to recall almost 100,000 electric cars. But it is now more to do with the owners being irresponsible than anything else. Read more about it here .
