Our goal: Expansion of the private charging infrastructure in the greater Wolfsburg area

Our promise: We will install your wallbox promptly and at a fair price!

Electric mobility is booming - despite all the prophe­cies of doom. The sales figures for e-vehicles are rising steadily, and more and more new models are coming onto the market. However, the charging infra­st­ruc­ture cannot keep up. Especially in the public space of city centres, it is still a challenge to find a suitable charging point. CUBOS is working to sustainably improve the private charging infra­st­ruc­ture in the greater Wolfsburg area - in our region, the focus is of course on the instal­la­tion of the three ID.Charger.

  • Do you own an electric car or have you ordered one?
  • You live in a detached house or a semi-detached house?
  • And you are looking for a wallbox?

Then CUBOS is your perfect partner within a radius of approx. 100 kilome­tres around Wolfsburg.

As part of the ES-Tec group of companies, we are very close to Volkswagen’s forward-thinking innova­tions. As those respon­sible for compon­ents, we play our part in how we will be on the road tomorrow and in the future. And through coope­ra­tion agree­ments with regional energy suppliers, with car dealer­s­hips of various brands and with selected wallbox manufac­tu­rers, CUBOS offers you a unique service.

Single-phase, three-phase, direct current, alternating current - a brief overview

A short detour into the world of plugs before we talk about charging and charging performance.

Ein Typ-2-Stecker – mittler­weile Standard in Europa.

The most common standard for electric cars in Europe is the Type 2 plug or Mennekes plug. It is flattened on the top and has five “thick” and two “thin” contacts. It is an alter­na­ting current connector.

In standard use, a cable with type 2 plugs is used for single-phase or three-phase AC charging between 3 and 22kW.

Less common and, at least for Europe, consi­dered to be a discon­ti­nued model, is the Type 1 plug. It is round, has a hook on the top and has three “thick” and two “thin” contacts. It is also an alter­na­ting current connector.

In standard use, a cable with Type 1 plugs is used for single-phase AC charging up to a maximum of 7.4kW. The grid operators do not like to see this form of charging and call this “skew charging”.

The CCS plug - Combined Charging System - corre­sponds “at the top” to the shape of the Mennekes plug, but only the two “thin” and one “thick” contact are pronounced. In addition, however, there are two further contacts below the Type 2 connector that accept the direct current.

Most CCS charging stations currently allow 50kW direct current, but values above 150kW are possible.

The CHAdeMO plug is the DC counter­part to the Type 1 plug and is also consi­dered a dying exotic in Europe. It is a thick round plug with two solid contacts and two control lines.

A fast CHAdeMo pole enables DC charging with 50kW charging power.

This is the plug you have in your home. It does not really play a role for electric cars, but in the case of a hybrid vehicle, which only has a fairly small battery, charging via Schuko can be resorted to - but only if the socket is well protected.

As a rule, a “charging brick” is installed in the charging cable between the car and the socket; the charging power is 2.3 to max. 3.2 kW.

You may know the small CEE plug (blue) from camping or from smaller boats as a so-called shore power connec­tion. It is actually just a different design of the Schuko plug.

Its “big brother” is red, has five contacts and is often called a three-phase or power connec­tion. You often find it in indus­trial buildings, sometimes also in the workshop at home.

At the “big red one”, 22kW are possible with a 32-ampere fuse, and at 16 amperes, 11kW are possible. CEE “blue” is limited to 3.7kW.

Tesla uses a modifi­ca­tion of the Type 2 plug. As a super-charger, the plug can be addressed by both direct current and alter­na­ting current - but the corre­spon­ding charging stations are reserved for the Tesla brand.

Current Super­char­gers along the motorways provide up to 150kW direct current. 

What we do for you:

Car salesmen sell cars. Energy providers supply electri­city. Internet retailers offer all kinds of wallboxes for sale - and your electri­cian is fully booked and only interested in new large orders. Who will advise you compre­hen­si­vely now and then install a wallbox for you promptly so that you can also use all the advan­tages of your electric or hybrid vehicle? We at CUBOS are happy to offer our services within a radius of around 100 km around Wolfsburg.

We are certified electri­cians. We are car crazy. We have a wide variety of e-cars in our pool - from the Tesla Model X to the e-up!, e-Golf, ID.3, Renault ZOE, Mitsu­bishi Leaf and Nissan i-MiEV to exotics like the mia, we have already moved and charged almost everything.

We don’t sell you a pig in a poke, but inform and advise you with the next few years in mind. A modern house connec­tion in a detached house can easily cope with a 22kW wallbox. The best-selling electric car in Germany, the Renault ZOE, has been charging for years without any problems thanks to a so-called chameleon charger via precisely this 22kW alter­na­ting current - and the vast majority of wallboxes available on the market today are designed for “only” 11kW. Do you see this as promising for the future?

That’s exactly what we should talk about. Free of charge and without obliga­tion. Make an appoint­ment today for a site inspec­tion at your home.

  • Advice on choosing a wallbox
    Which system is best suited to your current vehicle? With which system are you also well equipped for the future? Even if your current vehicle can “only” take 11kW AC charging, you should find out about a 22kW instal­la­tion with us.
  • Measu­re­ment and connec­tion planning
    During a free inspec­tion at your home, we determine and calculate the best position for the wallbox, create a parts list of all the required compon­ents up to the house distri­bu­tion and determine the best possible cable routing.
  • Prompt imple­men­ta­tion
    If you decide to work with CUBOS after receiving our non-binding offer, we will install your wallbox within a few weeks, provided your energy supplier does not raise any objec­tions and the hardware is available.
  • Appli­ca­tion service
    Depending on the charging capacity, your wallbox “only” needs to be regis­tered with the energy supplier or even approved by them. But we’ll take care of that - as well as any relevant appli­ca­tions for funding from the federal, state and local authorities.
