South Korea-based Humax has entered the EV charging market in the UK for the first time with its 7.4kW home charger.

Known for its digital TV recorders and smart home devices, the business is now extending its smart EV charging solutions into Europe with an initial launch in the UK, backed by a customer support infrastructure.

The Ecord 7.4kW home charger is designed for easy installation and use at residential properties, either wall-mounted or on a pedestal.

It comes with a 4m or 7m Type 2 cable and can be controlled manually using RFID technology or by the Humax Ecord app.

Installation and support will be provided by a dedicated partner – to be announced later this month – which will provide a survey, installation and post-installation support service to Humax customers across the UK.

The Ecord is also solar compatible, allowing excess solar energy from home PV systems to charge the owner’s vehicle.

It comes with a pre-set feature for charging outside peak hours – 8am to 11am, 4pm to 10pm weekdays – enabling owners to support the grid while benefitting from lower energy rates.

Jeff Kim, president of Humax, said, “Humax is recognised for its manufacturing heritage, its reliability and strong customer service across a wide range of sectors from TV devices to mobility solutions.

“The Ecord 7.4kW Home Charger is the first model in our EV charging series, confirming our commitment to sustainability and the smart home ecosystem.

“The EV charger range will be supported by a dedicated team of Humax customer service professionals, with a smooth installation process and outstanding post-purchase care assured by our trusted service partner.”
