Frequently asked questions

What if I want to travel far one day, will Plugzio be sufficient?


The size of your battery determines your range, not the speed of your charger.

If your phone runs out of battery in the middle of the day, you don't run out and buy a faster charger at home, at best you would consider a battery pack.

Your battery size determines your range, speed of the charger becomes irrelevant when you consider the fact that your vehicle is parked for at least 22 hours a day.

Next time someone tries to play scare tactics on you by say "It's takes 16 hours to charge on an outlet, you should have a faster charger" simply remind them that they don't have to sit in the car while it's parking/charging for 20+ hours a day!

Besides, everynight you only have to recharge what you have used during the day, not the entire battery as falsely advertised everywhere.




Why not support 240V Level 2 charging?


Vehicles on average are parked for 22 hours a day (95% of their lifetime). This simple fact makes shared high-power charging solutions (Level 2 charging), which are dominating the industry, not only overkill but also a costly strategy.

Plugzio increases the value of your property by allowing you to provide EV Charging to private parking spaces instead of having to offer an inconvenient shared charger.

With Plugzio you can call your parking EV-ready at about 1/5 of the cost and 5x the scalability.

Contact us if you have a specific use case for a 240V Universal product, we may be working on one!




How safe is my charging cable if I want to bring my own?


Every electric vehicle comes with their own free charger that can be plugged into a regular outlet.


If you are worried about safety of user's cables, it's good to know that an electric vehicle charger automatically gets locked to the vehicle as you lock the doors, so the charging unit is as safe as anything else around and inside your vehicle.

If you want to be extra safe, you can purchase a $10 lockable cover to easily install on your Plugzio unit so you can 'double' lock your cable into the charger.

Here is a sample cover: https://www.amazon.com/ENERLITES-Extra-Duty-Weatherproof-Receptacle-IUC1V-D/dp/B07P349BRF/ref=sr_1_19

If anyone plans to steal a charging cable, the high-power charging cables have a much higher resale value than any low power charger (that the drivers have). If you think high power charging cables are attached and inherently difficult to steal, you haven't yet seen a thief with a bolt cutter.




What are the warranty and service terms?


1 year warranty is default with every product. Extended warranty can be purchased at around $50 per year.

As part of our services, we send you a brand-new replacement product in the extreme rare case that there are any issues with Plugzio that the customer support team can't quickly resolve remotely. This allows us to improve our products while eliminating any service cost and/or downtime for you.




How easy is it to install Plugzio?


Plugzio can be installed by any electrician without additional training, if an electrician can change a light bulb, they can handle Plugzio.
