Level 1 Vs. Level 2 EV Chargers
The majority of electric vehicle charging is conducted at home. Many EV owners find themselves frustrated by the slow speed of Level 1 chargers, which are the cables that come standard with the purchase of an electric vehicle. A Level 1 charger plugs directly into a standard 120-volt AC outlet and has an average output of 1.3kW to 2.4kW. These chargers only provide 2 to 5 miles of range per hour, which means only 30 to 50 miles of range is added during an overnight charge.
The simple and cost-effective solution is to install a Level 2 charger. Level 2 charging stations operate on 208-240 volts and output between 3kW to 19kW of AC power. This translates to 18 to 28 miles of range, meaning an EV battery can reach full charge in only 8 hours. Level 2 chargers require additional installation and infrastructure, including a professionally installed 240-volt outlet on a dedicated circuit.
Maximize Your Electric Car's Efficiency with a Level 2 EV Charger
Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) chargers provide faster charging times and increased convenience compared to Level 1 chargers. With a Level 2 charger, you can fully charge your electric car in just a few hours, rather than the 10-12 hours it takes with a Level 1 charger.

Prior to installing an EV charger at a residential property, homeowners must determine whether they meet the requirements for such an installation. First, the home must be owned by the person desiring to install the EV charging station, or they must receive permission from their landlord. Second, the residence must have off-street parking, such as a driveway or a garage. Finally, if the charger is a smart charging station, the home needs to have Wi-Fi access to fully benefit from all the charger’s features. Smart charging allows users to manage their charging points remotely and optimize their energy consumption.
While EVs are certainly better for the environment, most drivers are attracted to them because they will no longer have to pay for gas. Although EV owners still need to pay for electricity to charge their vehicle’s battery, this is significantly less expensive than fueling up with gasoline. This is especially true in North Carolina where the average electric rates are 12 cents/kWh. If a driver does 14,000 miles a year, which is about 38.4 miles per day, it will cost about $50/month or $600/year to charge an electric vehicle at home with a Level 2 charger. Considering the average American pays more than $1500/year on fuel, the savings on gas adds up quickly.
