Tested for strict requirements
GARO Entity is approved for temperatures between -40°C and +40°C. What’s more, in climate testing it actually exceeds the standard’s requirements, meaning that it can also be exposed to even higher temperatures. Quite simply, a wallbox for the extremes, hot or cold.

A charging cable that’s always in the right place
GARO Entity Compact always comes with a fixed cable. So, you need not use the cable that came with your car. Imagine not having to worry about putting a cable covered in ice and snow in the boot? Instead, you can be sure that the cable stays where it is all day. What’s more, you need not buy a spare cable and you’ll never forget it at home because it’s always in the same place in your car.
Depending on where your wallbox is installed in your home, you should choose the right cable length, as our fixed cable comes in both five and eight-metre lengths.

Frequently asked questions wallbox at home

There are many reasons why you must charge your electric or hybrid car in a wallbox and not in a wall socket. Here are some of the reasons:
- Unlike wall sockets, GARO’s wallboxes are also compatible with load balancing, which means that the charging output adapts to the electricity consumption of other devices without the risk of tripping the main fuse.
- A wallbox is both safer and more secure. A wall socket is not designed for the heavy and sustained loads that occur during electric vehicle charging. Using a standard wall socket can trip fuses, and, in a worst-case scenario, can result in overheating and a fire risk.
- Sweden’s National Electrical Safety Board advises against the regular use of a standard wall socket for charging.
- Using a wallbox charges your car faster.
The fact that you add load balancing when you buy your wallbox is important since it can help you ensure that the total load does not exceed what your home can cope with when you charge your car. It is an important safety aspect and ensures that your house, electrical system and car work together in a safe way. How load balancing works:
You come home from work and connect your car to the wallbox, which puts a load on your home’s electricity consumption. A short time later, you start preparing dinner and turn on the cooker. As the evening air starts to cool, the heat pump also starts. The load balancing system immediately detects any increase in electricity use. GARO Entity Balance then adapts to the greater load by lowering the charging output or fully switches off charging output during that time. Once the household demand decreases, the charging output restarts or is increased again without tripping the main fuse.
No, according to Swedish electrical installation regulations, wallboxes must be installed by a certified electrician. Find your nearest electrician or retailer here.
If your wallbox does not work, contact the electrician responsible for the installation.
