Level 1, 2, 3 Chargers - The Basics You Need to Know

Level 1 Charger This is a 120-volt Level 1 Electric Vehicle Charger, and its use is called “trickle charging.” This is a charging system that uses a standard electrical outlet to charge, and Level 1 chargers draw electricity in a similar way to regular home appliances. Most automakers include a Level 1 charger in their plug-in vehicles, allowing you to charge your car right from the first day without modifying your household electrical system.

Range per hour (RPH) is an important consideration, and this charger delivers approximately 3-5 miles per hour of charge. It takes about 16 hours to charge up to 80% of the battery strength.

Level 2 Charger A 240-volt Electric Vehicle Charger is the most popular and useful type. This charging system is known for its fast charging speed, delivering 6x quicker charging than Level 1 chargers. The RPH of a Level 2 charger is approximately 20-60 miles per hour, and It takes only about 3.5 hours to charge up to 80% of the battery.

A Level 2 charger is the perfect solution for homes, workplaces, and public locations like train stations, malls, and other destinations.

Level 3 Charger This option is a 400-volt to 900-volt Level 3 Charging, or DC Fast Charging and is the fastest method to charge your electric vehicle. While Levels 1 and 2 charging use alternating current (AC), Level 3 uses direct current (DC) and a much higher voltage. An average Level 3 Charger utilizing over 480V for rapid charging will reach up to 80% in 30 minutes.

The enormous electrical demands of Level 3 Chargers make them relatively expensive to install. In most cases, installing a Level 3 Charger can cost more than your EV. Therefore, these chargers are designed for commercial use, and you will only find them in public places.

Before installing your EV charger, one of our trained electricians will inspect your electrical panel to make sure your electrical service is capable of supporting the charging speed you desire. If not, we can upgrade your panel as a part of the installation process.

CM Electric is also proud to be a Tesla-Approved electrician for Tesla Wall Connector installation. In addition to Tesla Wall Chargers, we install NEMA 14-50 and NEMA 6-50 outlets.

Level 2 EV Charging Stations For Homes and Businesses

Level 2 charging stations for electric vehicles are best suited for most homes and businesses. As either a homeowner or business owner, by using an EV and a Level 2 charger, you are contributing to the planet's well-being while enjoying the convenience of a relatively short charging time.
Installing a Level 2 EV Charging Station in your home or office means you can charge up to 6 times faster than with a Level 1 charger. Unlike the low-output Level 1 charging stations, these stations can supply between 12 and 80 miles of range per hour, subject to the amount of power available on your house panel and the maximum charge rate of the electric vehicle.
These systems are also energy-efficient, ensuring you can charge safely and reduce energy consumption costs during off-peak hours. Whether at work all day or spending quality time with your loved ones after hours, you can leave your vehicle plugged in safely and return to a fully charged car in just a few hours.
