EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment or EV chargers) are also classified into three categories: Level 1, Level 2, and direct current (DC) fast charging.
Level 1 charging uses a standard 120V outlet that you are likely to find in your garage. This is the slowest type of charging and will add an average of 5 miles per hour of charge. Also called “trickle charging”.
Level 2 charging requires a 240V outlet. These chargers can be installed in your home with a basic electrical upgrade and are very commonly used for public chargers. Level 2 chargers add 20 to 60 miles per hour of charge.
Level 3 chargers, or DC Fast Chargers, are only used in commercial settings. These chargers are most often found along highways since they provide 60 to 100 miles per 20 minutes of charge.
Numerous manufacturers produce chargers, with a variety of products and varying prices, applications, and functionality. Charli sorts through the options to choose the safest, most reliable charger for each project.
