Beny AC EV Charger Test: The Ideal Charger for Electric Vehicles?

Home Beny AC EV Charger Test: The Ideal Charger for Electric Vehicles?

Installing an EV charger at home offers significant benefits, enabling users to easily recharge their electric vehicles overnight and enjoy a worry-free journey the next day. However, with a plethora of options on the market, choosing the right EV charger can be challenging. In this article, we’ll delve into the test results to understand why the Beny AC EV charger has earned an impressive 9 out of 10 rating and why it is your ultimate choice.



Product: Beny BCP series AC EV charger

Place: Chamonix, France

The Beny BCP series AC EV chargers provide three power options: single-phase 7 kW and three-phase 11 kW and 22 kW, catering to various needs. Compared to three-phase ones, the installation of single-phase charger is simpler. While the difference between 7 kW and 11 kW is minimal, the 22 kW charging rate is substantial, requiring only 2 hours to charge half of an 80 kWh large battery.

The average power of the European household grid fluctuates between 6 and 12 kVA. Assuming a household grid power of 9 kVA, the likelihood of tripping increases significantly when high-power appliances such as ovens (3k to 4kW) start, let alone adding a 7 or 11 kW charger. “In such cases, Beny’s intelligent DLB (Dynamic Load Balancing) function plays a crucial role”, the tester states. The DLB box, comprising an LED display (showing current), current clamp, and Ethernet cable, allows maximum current adjustment (in amps) via +/- on the box. During the test, the maximum current is set to be 45A. When the oven is turned on, the DLB box displays 45A, but the car charges only at 25A. After turning off the oven, the charging current returns to 32A, demonstrating the effective monitoring and real-time adjustment of the DLB function.

Regarding the intelligent management, he explains, “Beny uses its self-developed Z-BOX application, connecting to the charger via WiFi or Bluetooth.” Although the tested product requires being on the same network as the app for real-time interaction, users can opt for other models compatible with the OCPP protocol to achieve remote interaction. “The app provides real-time information, including energy consumption, voltage, power, temperature, and historical data. We can also set different charging modes, disable functions like emergency stop buttons to prevent misuse, and even define the maximum consumption per month,” he adds.

In addition to these essential features, the Beny EV charger boasts innovative design, and diverse colors, seamlessly integrating into home environments. Equipped with small LED indicator light displaying whether the charger is connected, charging, and working correctly, it also comes with a charging cable (6m in the test version). With an IP65 rating and a working temperature range of -25°C to 55°C, it can be installed outdoors, even in extreme conditions. The test takes place in Chamonix, France, where the charger operates flawlessly despite low nighttime temperatures in an unheated garage. It’s worth mentioning that the installation of the Beny EV charger is straightforward with all the necessary hardware, including a wall bracket, manuals, DLB box, and an Ethernet cable.

The tester conducts tests on various mainstream car models from Tesla, MG, Mercedes, among others, without encountering any issues. “Beny charger offers the best quality, price, and cost-effectiveness on the market”, he says, “Unlike other products, it not only provides DLB functionality and a charging cable but also comes with a smart mobile application.” After several weeks of testing, the Beny AC EV charger performs exceptionally well, earning a remarkable rating of 9 out of 10.

In conclusion, the Beny BCP series chargers are characterized by innovative design, easy installation, included charging cable, resistance to harsh weather conditions. Together with its DLB functionality, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, and excellent value for investment, this charger comes your optimal choice.
