Types Of EVSE Chargers
Level 1 Chargers
A Level 1 EVSE Charger is a charger that usually comes standard with the purchase of your electrical vehicle and will plug into a standard 120v outlet in your home. This type of charging may be suitable at first, but this can be a painfully slow process if your in need to be on the go quickly. According to the US Department of Transportation, level 1 charging can take 40-50 hours to charge a BEV (Battery-powered Electric Vehicle) to 80% from empty. Who Has Time For That??
Level 2 Charger
A Level 2 EVSE Charger is a more efficient and advanced solution for charging your EV. The installation of a level 2 charger will require a dedicated 240v circuit installed in your home or business and will need to be installed by a licensed electrician for proper installation and electrical inspection of the current electrical system being tied into. According to the US Department of Transportation, Level 2 chargers can charge a BEV to 80% from empty in 4-10 hours. Having you on the road about 5 to10 times faster than a level 1.
Level 3 Chargers
A Level 3 charger is the fastest charging capabilities. While level 3 charging stations may sound like the way to go for your home unfortunately homes will not be equipped with the electrical requirements of the level 3 chargers. Level 3 chargers or (DC fast chargers) use DC power sent directly to the vehicle bypassing the vehicles onboard AC to DC converter allowing for about a 3-20 mile range per minute of charging. These types of chargers are mainly used for public charging stations.
