Note: Even though RCD protection can help keep you safe from electric shocks, it's still crucial to be mindful. Make it a habit to have your wiring checked regularly to make sure you, your family, and your home are safe. And if you come across any issues with your wiring or appliances, stop using them immediately and get in touch with a qualified electrician right away.

Using everyday electrical appliances like dishwashers or microwaves often feels like a routine task, not something particularly dangerous that requires extensive protection. This is because most of these appliances are designed with their own safety features and are additionally monitored via miniature circuit breakers and/or a RCD. Additional measures to protect against fault currents are also required for EV charging stations. One reason for it is that electric cars are always on the move, facing different weather, road conditions and stresses that regular household devices don't.
To play it safe, consider opting for a wallbox charger like our go-e Charger Gemini or Gemini flex, equipped with protective features like DC and AC detection. Furthermore, installing a Residual Current Device (RCD) type A is an essential step to ensure electrical safety.
