ABOUT DERRY COUNTY
Located in Northern Ireland, County Derry is also known as County Londonderry. The name given to this northwestern county was a source of contention for many years. In general, “Londonderry” is found on the majority of official British documents and is popular with Unionists. On the other hand, “Derry” is more frequently used by Irish or Nationalists.
The biggest city in this county is Derry which is second in size to the largest town in Northern Ireland. Derry is known for its pristine old city walls that are a part of the city’s history and is situated on the banks of the River Foyle. The one-mile city wall is regarded as one of the finest examples of a walled city in Europe.
Aside from the Derry City Walls, County Derry is known for Portstewart Strand, Seamus Heaney Country, Mussenden Temple, and Museum of Free Derry. Tourists visiting County Derry should check out the city’s walls, which date back to the past, and the buildings in one of Ireland’s oldest continuously inhabited cities. The picturesque Sperrin Mountains and the beautiful Lough Neagh are also worth visiting.

How long does it take to charge my electric car?
There are many factors that’ll have an impact on your power consumption and time to charge.
How long it takes to charge your electric car really depends on the type of charging station and your car model. Driving style, traffic speed and road conditions all have an impact on power consumption.
What does it cost to charge my electric car?
The average electricity fee at night is about €0,095 per kWh in Ireland at night (consumer rate). Let’s say your electric car has an empty battery and approximately 40 kWh capacity. Depending on your driving style, your car should be able to reach approximately 280 to 320 km on a single charge. Charging your electric car would cost a total of 40 x 0.095 = €3.80. This means that the power consumption per 100 kilometres is just around €1,24-1,28.
Can I charge my car on any charger?
Yes and no. Just like regular electricity outlets, charging stations may have different outlets and connectors depending on the country where you’re charging and your car brand’s origin. Luckily, to make things less complicated, car manufacturers and most countries have now reduced the options to just 2 types of outlets and connectors. From the car’s side, a Type 1 socket is common for Japanese and American vehicles, and a Type 2 socket is common for European vehicles. Note: all Tesla models have a specific type of socket in the US, whereas in Europe, all Tesla models are equipped with a Type 2 socket. From the charging station’s side, all chargers in both Europe and the US are equipped with a Type 2 socket. A charging station with a fixed cable is an exception; in this case, you would always have to check if the attached cable fits into your car’s socket.
How much maintenance does a car charger need?
Very little. Despite being an advanced technology, electric cars are remarkably simple to maintain. The same is true for EV charging stations. If installed properly and built modularly, every piece can be easily replaced. Charging stations with online connectivity also enable remote diagnostics and repair, so you won’t be left stranded in the rare event of charger malfunction
Can electric car chargers be charged in the rain?
Yes, of course. Electric vehicles can definitely be charged in the rain as proper covering shields and protective layers are applied to the charging plugs and charging stations. That prevents any kind of sparks, current loss, water mixing or short circuit.
