Standard Level 1 Chargers

Electric Vehicles usually come equipped with a basic EV charger, known as a Level 1 charger. These chargers are convenient in that they can be plugged into a standard 120-volt electrical outlet in your garage. It is important to know that no other devices should be plugged into the same outlet as an EV charger. In addition, it is best to use a GFCI type receptacle to guard against electrical shock.

The downside of this type of EV charger is that it can take up to 12 hours to fully charge some vehicles. Each hour of charge only provides between 3-5 miles, depending on the vehicle. This may work for those individuals who only travel short distances. But for those that travel longer distances, it may be necessary to upgrade to a more advanced EV charger.

Level 2 Chargers

Those who need to charge their electric vehicle battery faster can invest in a Level 2 charger. Typically, this kind of charger can fully charge an EV battery in 4-6 hours.

Our certified technicians can help you with the following:

  • Determining if an existing electrical panel can handle the new circuit
  • Upgrading electrical panels that are insufficient
  • Ensuring the proper and safe installation of a suitable electrical outlet
  • Mounting the EV charger in a safe and convenient location

Level 2 chargers require a 240-volt receptacle. This type of outlet is not common in homes, and therefore installation requires the assistance of a professional electrician. Let our team help you get the right technology for your needs.
