What is a Home EV Charger?  

EVSE chargers supply electrical energy to your electric vehicles. There are three levels of electric vehicle charging devices.

Which type of EVSE charger should I get?

It depends on your driving habits. Many EV owners get by with plugging in their cars for an overnight charge.  If you frequently need to recharge your EV at around midday, having a Level 2 charger installed is a smart investment.  It will also increase the value of your home.

Level 1

“Level 1” charging is just plugging in to a standard electrical outlet. Level 1 charging can be convenient for home use, but charges very slowly, offering about 5 miles of Range Per Hour (RPH). Level 1 is most useful when a vehicle will be parked for several hours.

Level 2

These stations can add 12 to 25 RPH, depending on the type of EV and its charger. Level 2 charging stations are ideal for times when you’ll be parked for at least an hour.  It provides enough juice to get around town and works up to six times faster than Level 1 charging.  Most plug-in hybrids charge at Level 1 or 2.

DC Fast

On long trips or when you’re pressed for time, DC fast charging can deliver 100 RPH or more, charging some EVs to 80 percent in 20-30 minutes. DC fast charging stations have various power levels. In general, higher power levels charge EVs faster.  The charging speed of your station may also depend on the type of charging port your EV has.
