How Does an Electric Vehicle Charging Station Work?
Rather than filling them up with gas at a station, electric vehicles require a charging station to charge their battery with electrical power. In the U.S., electric vehicle charging stations are either classified as Level 1 or Level 2. While Level 1 chargers may cost less initially, be aware they take longer to charge your vehicle fully. A Level 2 charger is also better for your car’s battery in the long-term. While you don’t necessarily have to install a Level 2 charger at your home or business, it’s generally in your best interest.
Level 1 involves plugging in your electric car to a cable, which gives you the flexibility to transport and charge it virtually anywhere. Most Level 1 chargers use a 120 V AC plug, which can be plugged into a standard electrical outlet. No additional installation is necessary with a Level 1 charger. A Level 2 charger is mounted to the wall, which allows for faster charging through a higher voltage. A Level 2 charger uses a 240 V (residential) or 208 V (commercial) plug, which requires installation by a qualified electrician. Delta Electric specializes in the installation of high-voltage home EV charging stations for residential and commercial customers seeking powerful, efficient charging solutions.
Benefits of Installing Your Own Home EV Charging Station
Since you’ll likely spend the bulk of your charging time at home, it makes sense to install an EV charging station at home. Convenience is the number one advantage. You won’t be limited to the amount of time you can spend charging your vehicle, as you can let it charge overnight while you sleep. You also won’t have to worry about waiting in line at a public charging station or paying their varying service rates. It’s estimated that charging your vehicle at home is up to five times cheaper than using a public charging station. Take control of your electric vehicle charging needs by investing in a home charging station that hooks up to the rest of your smart home technology.
How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Vehicle?
One of the questions we hear the most often from customers is, “How long will it take to charge my electric vehicle?” Several factors will affect your charging time, including your battery size and its condition, the type of charging station you have, and the maximum charging power involved. It’s not possible to charge faster than the maximum charging power, which is why we specialize in high-voltage home EV charging stations to ensure our customers’ satisfaction.
