Which EV Car Charging Level Do You Need Installed?

Charging an electric vehicle isn’t as simple or fast as filling up with gas in your traditional automobile. With gas motored cars you have different levels of gas, regular, plus, premium, etc. WIth EV charging, you have 3 main levels of chargers. Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. Level 3 is broken down into two parts. Tesla Supercharging and DC Fast Charge. 

 Level 1 Charging: 120-Volt

  • Connectors Used: J1772, Tesla
  • Charging Speed: 3 to 5 Miles Per Hour
  • Locations: Home, Workplace & Public

These are standard 120 volt outlet chargers. Every electric vehicle can be charged with them. The problem is they are the slowest of all three home charging stations. 

 Level 1 charging works well for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs)

Level 2 Charging: 208-Volt to 240-Volt

  • Connectors Used: J1772, Tesla
  • Charging Speed: 12 to 80 Miles Per Hour
  • Locations: Home, Workplace & Public

Hey now we are talking, much faster than a Level 1. Level 2 is the most common everyday charging equipment that can be installed at home, and other locations. Your vehicle’s charge rate and the Level 2 chargers output will determine if you are closer to the 12 miles per hour of charging or the 80 miles per hour of charging.

Level 2 chargers require a 100-amp 208-240V dedicated circuit and wiring from the service panel. Our electric contractors are specialists at installing Level 2 EV Chargers. 

Level 3 Charging: 400– 900 Volts DC 

Fast Charge & Tesla Supercharging

  • Connectors Used: Combined Charging System (Combo), CHAdeMO & Tesla
  • Charging Speed: 3 to 20 Miles Per Minute
  • Locations: Public

Not many homeowners will ever install this Level of car charger as it requires high voltage above what most home have. Another thing is the Level 3 chargers are DC (Direct Current) unlike the Level 1 and 2 which are alternating current (AC).

However, if you are a business wanting to install an EV charging station, our commercial electric contractors would be more than willing to install it for you.
