Types of EV Charging Stations
There are three levels of EV charging stations: Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. These units are unbeatable. You can compare the top EV charging units to avoid regret later.
- Level 1 Electric Vehicle Charging Station This station is often included in the purchase of an electric Tesla vehicle. It has a 120-volt connector and does not require any special installation.
- Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Station This EV charging station replaces the Level 1. This charger cannot be purchased with the purchase or lease of an electric vehicle. You can purchase it separately with a 240-volt connector. You will need to have a licensed electrician install it if your home doesn’t have an additional 240-volt socket.
- Level 3 Electric Vehicle Charging Station – This charger is the most powerful on the market. This charger is used more frequently in public EV charging stations.
You need a 120-volt or 240-volt outlet to charge your new EV charging station. Contact Us Today
The Level 1 EV charging station requires a 120-volt outlet. Because it’s more powerful, the Level 2 EV charging station will require a 240-volt outlet. Level 3 EV charging stations can be used in public areas and require a more detailed installation.
