Tips for a well-planned, safe BYD EV Charger installation at home

Before booking your BYD charger installation, there are a few choices to make regarding design, location, and installer.

As experienced BYD charger installers, we’ve put together this guide of key considerations to help you make those decisions. Getting advice from a licensed, qualified, and experienced installer can make the process smoother.

Read on.

Choosing your BYD Charger

Consider your specific BYD model and charging needs when selecting your charger. Our highly knowledgeable team can help you choose an EV charger that’s compatible with your BYD, has the features you need and is suitable for your installation location.   

Selecting your BYD Charger

Factors to consider include:

  • Charging speed: How quickly do you need your BYD to charge?
  • Cable length: Check the options and ensure the cable will comfortably reach your car’s charging port.
  • Accessories: Do you need a cable organiser or other charger accessories?

Not sure which charger to use for your vehicle? Contact us and we can help provide a recommendation for your vehicle and electrical system.

Multiple EV’s in the family or business fleet?

If you have more than one EV, consider installing multiple charger units for simultaneous charging.

Location and positioning

Where you install your BYD charger matters! Consider these factors when choosing a location:

  • Your lifestyle and usage: Where do you typically park your BYD? How often do you charge? Do you prefer overnight charging or quick top-ups?
  • Charge port location: Remember your BYD’s charging port location when choosing your installation spot.
  • Outside factors: Think about other vehicles needing access, potential hazards (like garage doors), and protection from the elements.

Your electricity supply

BYD-compatible chargers are adaptable to most power supplies. Your installer will assess your home setup and advise you on:

  • Circuit breakers: Choose a breaker that aligns with your vehicle’s onboard charger.
  • Solar integration: If you have solar power, ask your installer about seamless integration of your solar system with your BYD charger.
