The Local _ Life in Sweden _ Charging an electric car from a block heater plug?

Posted by: jb_otr 28.May.2019, 06:12 PM

We’re moving north soon, to Umeå.

I’ve been intrigued in getting an EV (electric car), but our living arrangements will prevent us from being able to install a dedicated high voltage charging station at home.

However, I know that car parks all over Sweden have plugs for standard domestic voltage block heaters. Our apartment will come with a parking space with electricity. So does anyone have any experience of plugging an EV into this plugs for slow overnight trickle charging?
