This is a home-use charging unit for plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) and electric vehicles (EVs).
There are two types of home-use charging units available. The wall-mounted type is suitable for garage use, or if the parking space is adjacent to the house. The pole-mounted type is suitable if the parking space is away from the house.
Like the public-use charging stand, the home-use charging unit is equipped with a charging cable. This eliminates the trouble to set the cable when the vehicle is charged.
The on-board charger converts household AC voltage into DC voltage to charge the high-voltage batteries of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). It accepts a wide range of voltages. This allows it to be used not only in Japan but throughout the world.
