Best Home EV Charger
To properly choose the best home EV charger station you must first choose the power output you need. Assuming your current is 110 volts (which is the case for most Americans), and you just plug you car in to your garage’s plug without any upgrades, it will be charging at 3-5 miles per hour. That means an overnight may not be enough for some people who drive a lot daily. Most people find a Level 2 charger to be the best type.
Best Home EV Charger Brand
There are so many brands to choose from and it can be overwhelming. For example, Bosh, Instavolt, Tesla, ChargePoint, EVBox, Siemens, etc. Although they are Level 2 chargers, some have more Amps then other and will charge quicker. They will vary in their own price and also the labor.
Level 1 EV Charger
A Level 1 EV charger uses a standard 110-120 volt current (the most common for household outlets). You just plug the special extension cord you got with your car to an outlet in your garage. Just be sure that the outlet you are using is GFCI safe. This type takes exceptionally long to charge as it charges at a range 3-5 miles per hour.
Level 2 EV Charger
Level 2 EV charger is installed on a 240-volt electrical system. That allows the car battery to charge at a range of 25 miles per hour. That translates into a much faster battery charging time. There are other factors to consider such as the Amps of the EV charger, and the size of the car’s battery.
Installing 240v Outlet for Electric Car
This type of charging requires installing a 240 volts outlet with a dedicated circuit. In this case, look for an experienced electrician like ourselves. When is all up and running you may be charging your car anywhere from in 3-12 hours (depending on the Amps and the car’s battery).
Level 3 EV Charger
Level 3 EV Charger is the fastest station available in the market. You may have used it at dedicated public stations or at the shopping mall for example. In 20-30 minutes it can charge 80% of a car’s battery by storing the DC power in the battery. This is available for commercial only.
