Yes, all electric car subscriptions come with a slow (trickle) charger that can be connected to a general-purpose outlet, or household power point.
Charging your car with these chargers can be slow but they can safely charge the battery all day, or night without damaging it. Most feature automatic cycles that turn off the charger when the battery is at its optimum capacity.
It’s also important to note that charging times vary greatly, depending on the size of your car’s battery, the level of charge remaining, the temperature and the maximum rate of charge the battery can accept.
Generally speaking, however, the following rough timings apply when charging.
Wall socket (2.4kW) = 24+ hours
Home wall box (3-11kW) = 7-12 hours
Public AC charging (7-22kW) = 4-7 hours
Public DC fast/rapid charging (25-150kW) = 1-2 hours
Public DC ultra rapid/high-powered charging (150-350kW) = 20 - 60 minutes
