Choose the Right Electric Car Charging Station for Your Needs
When it comes to electric car charging stations for your home, you have many options available. These stations come in various shapes and sizes, and your main consideration will be the voltage for your in-home charging station. Opting for higher voltage will result in a faster charging time for your car, but it may also cost more to install. Ultimately, the decision is up to you, and our team of skilled technicians will guide you in choosing the best option for your needs.
Level 1 EV Charging Station – 120v
A standard Level 1 charger that comes with every EV can easily be plugged into a wall outlet at home. If you do not commute much or you work from home, this option is optimal for overnight charging and low-mileage daily driving.
You can choose between a J1772 or a Tesla connector that comes with your vehicle. This option is ideal for plug-in hybrid vehicles due to their smaller batteries, allowing you to get up to five miles of range per hour.
Level 2 EV Charging Station – 240v
This level of charging station is commonly found in public areas. They offer an average of 25 miles of range per hour and can be either hardwired or plugged into an existing 240-volt outlet, such as a dryer plug. They are best for quick charging, providing a full charge from empty overnight in eight to ten hours. If you are a frequent driver, you will appreciate the convenient charging process.
Level 3 EV Charging Station – DC Fast Charger
Direct current charging (DC) is the fastest EV charging method. Depending on the car and charging equipment, it can provide up to 250 miles of range per hour. With the ability to charge up to 80% in just 20 to 30 minutes, this option is ideal for longer-distance driving, road trips, or quick recharges. Non-Tesla chargers typically use a CCS/SAE Combo connector, while Tesla DC fast chargers are designed exclusively for Tesla vehicles.
