What are the Different Levels of Chargers?
When it comes to EV chargers, there are three main levels: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. Each level corresponds to the amount of power the charger can provide and the charging time required to fully charge your electric vehicle.
Level 1 chargers are the most basic and typically come with your electric vehicle. These chargers use a standard 120-volt outlet and can provide up to 2-5 miles of range per hour of charging. While Level 1 chargers are convenient and easy to use, they are not very efficient and can take up to 24 hours to fully charge your electric vehicle.
Level 2 chargers, on the other hand, use a 240-volt outlet and provide up to 10-60 miles of range per hour of charging (depending on the vehicle and the charger). These chargers are much faster than Level 1 chargers and are ideal for home charging or public charging stations. Level 2 chargers require professional installation are much more efficient, with the ability to fully charge your electric vehicle in as little as 4-8 hours.
Level 3 charging, also known as DC fast charging, offers rapid charging for electric vehicles (EVs), allowing you to charge your EV quickly and efficiently while on the move. At EV Charging Professionals, we provide Level 3 chargers for commercial and public applications.
Level 3 chargers can charge your EV’s battery to 80% or more in just 20-30 minutes, depending on your EV’s battery capacity and the charging station’s power output. Designed for high-traffic areas such as highway rest areas, retail locations, and fleet charging stations, Level 3 chargers are perfect for businesses and public settings where fast charging is essential.
