Electric car charging stations come in two main types: Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1 draws 120 volts of power from a standard wall outlet, with a charge time of around 8-20 hours. Level 2 is faster, with up to 240 volts of power, quick-charging your car from 0 to full in 4-6 hours. Level 2 also has the advantage of being compatible with most cars and electric vehicles (EVs).
To get your electric car charging station up and running, the first step is to find a compatible wall-plug or charging station. After that, you’ll need to connect your vehicle to the charging station using a special cord. Most EVs come with a cord, while you can buy cords online or at retailers that specialize in electric car charging.
Once connected, plug the cord into your home electric outlet, if you’re using a Level 1 station. For Level 2 charging, your charging station will require a dedicated electrical circuit. Finally, use in-car controls (if available) to start your charging session. When you’re done, simply unplug the cord and you’re ready to roll.
In addition to the obvious environmental benefit, electric car charging provides several other advantages. According to a recent survey from Chargemaster, nearly 98% of electric car owners reported significant fuel cost savings. Other key benefits include quick charging times, convenient home/public charging options, and access to special discounts and incentives.
The electric car revolution is in full swing, and with the help of electric car charging stations, you can join the movement and start saving. From cutting fuel costs to reducing your carbon footprint, there are plenty of reasons to switch to electric car charging today.
