Ready to charge faster, smarter, cleaner?
It’s important to understand the three different types of EV charging levels (Level 1, 2 and 3), their associated charge rates and the typical use cases of each when considering electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).
A Level 1 charger is simply charging from a standard 120V household outlet, which only provides about 4 to 5 miles of range per hour.
Level 2 chargers, which essentially take in a voltage supply over 200 volts, and will charge a typical EV at a rate between 12 to 60 miles of range per hour, depending on how much power the charger can supply, and how much power the EV can accept.
DC Fast Chargers
DC fast charging uses direct current (DC), which is different than the alternating current (AC) that is available in homes and most commercial buildings.
You can charge some EV plug-in vehicles to 80 percent in a charge time of 20-30 minutes.
