When it comes to electric vehicle (EV) chargers, there are several types available. Here are five common types of EV chargers:
They typically come with the EV upon purchase and can be plugged into a standard household outlet (120 volts AC).
Level 2 chargers can provide charging speeds of around 10-60 miles of range per hour, depending on the EV's onboard charger and the charging station's power output.
DC Fast Chargers can provide ranges from 60-100 miles in just 20 minutes, depending on the charger's power output and the EV's compatibility.
Wireless chargers are typically slower than Level 2 chargers and are primarily used for overnight charging or in specific applications like parking lots and garages.
These chargers often come with adapters to plug into different power sources, including standard household outlets or 240-volt outlets.
