Customize your own brand of ev charger

Custom ev chargers are not as complicated as you think, as long as you find a professional and suitable factory

Why Choose Electric Vehicle Charger ODM Service?

Most newbies in the EV field will favor ODM because it is more convenient, faster and less expensive to invest. This is understandable, but consider that while sales are growing, so are the number of businesses. If the product is not exclusive, then when the company’s influence expands to a certain scale, it will intersect with other companies, and everyone is selling the same product, which will not only lead to a large loss of customers, but also form a vicious price competition, but also has an impact on the ingenuity of the company, thereby delaying the company’s development.

But ODM does not cause such a problem.

Because each customer has different customization needs for a product, the product is unique in the EV market, so companies can develop their marketing and sales strategies more proactively without worrying about product homogeneity.
The overall design and performance of all products are tailored for customers, which is more in line with the aesthetics and usage habits of the sales area, and is more easily accepted by the local market.
It can be combined with the strategic planning of the enterprise to improve the brand influence of the enterprise
ODM is a strategy suitable for the development of the company, it can enable the enterprise to better compete in the market and expand its influence

Customized cycle and cost estimation of EV Charger

The electric vehicle charger industry is booming, and new businesses and homes are being built all the time. As a result, there is a growing demand for customized EV charger solutions that can meet the specific needs of each customer. However, the development of custom EV charger solutions can be expensive and time-consuming. To ensure the best value for your money, it is important to understand the charging station customization process and its impact on project costs.

The following is our estimation of time and cost based on our previous experience in customizing charging piles. This is just a reference to help those companies who have never customized charging piles provide a reference for relevant information before making a decision, so that they can make clearer planning. The specific cycle and cost data in the project are subject to the actual project

Custom cycle: 6-8 weeks
Customization fee: 20,000-50,000/USD

Precautions for custom ev charger

The power of the ev charger

If you plan to develop an EV charger, it’s important to first determine the power output you need. Electric vehicle chargers are available in single-phase and three-phase types

The output power of the single-phase charging pile is generally 3.6kw-7.2kw, mainly used in the European and North American markets
The output power of the three-phase charging pile is generally 11kw-22kw, mainly used in the European market
Some customers think it’s better to use a charger with a wide range of power outputs, but that’s not the case. Different power outputs require different product designs, configurations and protection settings. This directly affects your cost budget and therefore the price competitiveness of your product when it goes to market. So before doing anything else, you need to identify your target market and then determine the power output range based on the needs of that market.

What is Level 1, 2, 3 charging?

Display section of EV Charger
The status display panel of the charging pile is the most conspicuous part of the charging pile. EChargingTech suggests that for the overall design of an EV charger, we should start by identifying the display method.

If you are taking the simple route, you can choose the indicator belt
If you take the scientific and technological route, you can choose a color display
If going the high-end route, a touchscreen display is an option
Different display methods directly determine the design ideas and overall style of electric vehicle chargers. For displays, it’s not just a matter of choosing any size. A well-designed ratio will directly determine the visual comfort of the evcharger, just like Apple’s repeated attempts at iPhone screen ratios. So, when choosing an EV charger, be sure to pay attention to the display and its size. A good EV charger should have a sleek design with a well-proportioned display for easy viewing.

Usage scenarios of EV Charger

Home EV Charger and commercial EV Charger have different markets and customer groups, and have completely different usage habits and frequencies. Home EV chargers are typically installed in garages and are used less frequently than commercial chargers. Therefore, the design of home chargers should be more user-friendly, easy to install and operate. For commercial chargers, the design is completely different since they are always installed in public places. The appearance of the charger should be stylish and modern to match the environment of the mall or restaurant.

Therefore, when customizing, the design of many plates will be different to ensure that the product can be more suitable for the use scene

Exterior Humanized, in line with personal usage habits Stylish and modern to match the public use scene
Install Easy to install The installation is firm, and non-professional tools cannot be disassembled
Waterproofing IP66 IP67
Material Better display of product texture More robust
Function Plug and play, easy to operate, can view history Billable, limited use
Components High precision of components Component stability
Connection method WiFi, Bluetooth WiFi、SIM、Card
Security protection mechanism Household standard Commercial standard

Not only the design differences in the table, but also the home EV Charger and the commercial EV Charger will have big differences in the customization cycle, certification acquisition cycle, customization budget, market launch time, manual design, etc. Therefore, in the formal customization Before, be sure to determine the usage scenario of the charging pile

Note: It is generally not recommended for customers to customize an EV Charger for both home and commercial use

Mode selection of EV CHARGER

According to the different charging methods, EV Charger is divided into two types. The structure of these two modes, the installation methods are different

Socket only with type2, mainly used in Europe

With cable+plug, mainly used in North America and Europe

If your target market is in North America, then Mode C is your best choice
If your target market is in Europe, then you can choose Mode A or Mode C according to the specific country and market
If you think your target market needs both Mode A and Mode C, then when customizing, you need to design products that are compatible with both modes


Certifications required for EV Charger

Different countries and markets have different certification requirements for products.
Different product certifications have different design requirements for products
For example, a product designed to CE standards has different components and material selections than a product designed to TUV standards. This can have a significant impact on the design process as well as product cost. When designing an EV charger, it is important to consider the certification requirements of the target market to ensure compliance. Otherwise, the project may be delayed or even cancelled.

CE is the most basic certification for product quality in the European Union. Without CE, it is impossible to enter the European region for sales, and the cost is relatively cheap.

TUV EU high-standard product certification, its test standard is higher than CE, with higher market recognition, higher cost

UL is a high-standard certification in North America and is recognized as one of the safest certifications in the world. It is a guarantee of quality for consumers, but the cost is very high.

ROHS is the EU area, which is the certification of products meeting environmental protection requirements. It mainly detects six types of harmful substances in products.

Before customizing the charging pile, be sure to clarify where your target market is, so as to determine the certification that needs to be done. The lack of necessary certifications will not only get goods into trouble at customs, but also affect sales plans. Doing unnecessary certification not only wastes unnecessary energy and cost, but also does not help sales. If you’re not very sure about certifications, we can advise you on that, a clear understanding of your target market and the certifications required will help ensure that your evcharger business is smooth sailing.
