What are the charger differences?

Level 1

Level 1

Charging a vehicle at “Level 1” means plugging in to a standard 120 volt outlet. All drivers can charge their EV at Level 1 and this requires no extra equipment or installation. On average, a full charging time is about 40-50 hours – but vary by model. Consult the automaker’s website for more information.

Level 2

Level 2

Charging a vehicle at “Level 2” means plugging into a 240 volt outlet. Home owners may decide to install a charging station – also known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) – in their home. This requires professional installation and an outlet type commonly utilized by home appliances like refrigerators and dryers. There are also many Level 2 chargers across the United States in public areas. On average, full charging time varies from 4 to 10 hours, but times vary by model. Consult the automaker’s website for more information.

DC Fast Charge

DC Fast Charge

Charging your vehicle using a CHAdeMO, SAE Combo plug or a Tesla Supercharger allows drivers to plug into “DC Fast Charge” networks where they are available. These types of chargers provide about 80 percent of a vehicle’s potential battery power in about 15 minutes. Again, times vary by model. Consult your manufacturer for more details.

Wireless Charging

Wireless Charging

Some of the latest models of plug-in vehicles have wireless charging capabilities that use “inductive charging” – allowing drivers to charge without plugging in. While this is a newer service under development, many manufacturers are beginning to focus on this convenience.
