CHARLOTTE – Electric Vehicle Chargers or EV Chargers are presently becoming vastly popular as more electric vehicles are being manufactured for the masses. All electric and hybrid vehicles have batteries in need of regular charging. There are many options available for charging your new Electric Vehicle.
Obviously charging your EV at home is essential. Your EV will come ready with a cord that can plug directly into a regular standard 120 Volts outlet at home. This Level 1 type is a method of charging that typically will allow for 4 miles of battery charge for every hour of charging.
Installing a Level 2, 240 Volts charger at home will allow you to fully charge up while plugged in overnight. Researching before you buy will help you choose from the various available chargers. Consider having your Level 2 charger installed by a licensed electrician before bringing your new car home.
Get out on the open road without fear. Numbers of employers offer to charge at work. Some multi-unit housing complexes allow charging on site. Level 3, Super-chargers that can fully charge an electrical vehicle in record time using DC power are increasingly available. A search online will reveal a vast network of super-chargers at gas stations, stores, venues, public and private businesses. There’s an App for that! A Super-charger can have your car 80% charged in as little as 20-30 minutes.
