Electric and plug-in hybridbilejere have to think about before putting the car nødlader cable into the wall outlet. Improper use of the so-called ’mormorlader’ can end up extremely dangerous. It shows the test, FDM has made of the ways in which many use the car nødlader on.
It writes the FDM in a press release.
According to the FDM, it is especially for to get rid of paying 10-15.000 kr. for a properly installed ladeboks, that many electric and plug-in hybridbilejere instead chooses to leave with the car nødlader cable. But it can be both stupid and dangerous, warns the FDM, which stresses that it can potentially mean that your house breaks a fire.
the Reason for the great danger is the many amps, as nødladerne lets with, and which far exceeds the 6 amperes as a standard wall outlet can afford to be burdened with.

FDM at the same time stresses that it is not unusual to see a socket or the cable reel is connected, if the cable can't reach between the car and the house. But it should also stay away from, for it is illegal and only makes charging more dangerous.
FDM's testing showed that the load meant that the wires quickly reached a temperature of around 70 degrees, and they melt at 80-90 degrees. When charging with a nødlader cable with 16 amps, it took just 15 minutes before the cable inside the wall reached 108 degrees. Then cut off the FDM experiment.
- most of The electrical installations in the houses and cottages are not sized to withdraw the power that is needed to charge an electric car or plugin hybrid. If you still use nødladeren in many hours, can be developed much heat can do damage to the house's electrical installation, " said Tom Westersø Larsen, technician in the FDM.
- The few know what is on the other side of the outlet inside the wall. If there are thin wires, they are with high amperage fast heating, and so it can easily go completely wrong and end up with a fire in the house as a result of improper use of nødlader cable, he says.
Some choose to use mormorkablet to save money, while others are in doubt as to what they can and cannot do. FDM get daily inquiries about the charging of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Also on social media, FDM seen several examples of illegal and irresponsible lademuligheder.
- You should consider nødladeren as a spare tire in the car. It should really just be there and only be used if there are no other options, and only if, the design of the electrical installation, in which the drawn power from the, is calculated for electricity and hybridbilsopladning, says Tom Westersø Larsen.
you drive an electric or plugin-hybrid car, recommend FDM to invest in a properly installed ladeboks or, as a minimum, get an electrical installation with ground fault circuit interrupter type B. it meets The legal requirements in all types of nødladere.
