What Are EV Chargers & How Do They Work?

An EV or EVSE charger supplies electrical energy to recharge an electric vehicle. Charging stations are dedicated circuits that require the right amount of power to charge your car. EV chargers also need a breaker for safety. Mr. Electric of Paulding County is here to help you choose the proper charger for your electric vehicle and optimize the connection. We’re the team to call when you’re ready to install an EV charger at home.

Available Types of EVSE Chargers

There are three types of EVSE chargers available, and the kind that’s right for you depends on your driving habits. While many EV owners can get by with plugging their cars in for an overnight charge, others will benefit from having a level 2 charger installed. Learn more about your options for EV chargers:

  • Level 1 Charger – These chargers come standard when you purchase an electric vehicle. A level 1 charger is plugged into a standard three-prong outlet. There’s no installation required with this type of charger, but it will charge your electric vehicle very slowly. This option is best suited for overnight use because it can take more than 20 hours to charge your car’s battery fully.
  • Level 2 Charger – This more advanced charger requires a dedicated 240-volt circuit. Level 2 chargers require professional installation and allow you to charge your vehicle in your garage much faster than a level 1 charger. It typically takes three hours to fully charge your electric car using this charger. Many automakers now include level 2 chargers when you buy a car, but you’ll need a professional to install it.
  • Level 3 Charger – These standalone devices are typically used at public charging stations. It takes about half an hour to add 160 miles of driving range to your electric battery using a level 3 charger. These chargers are not available to homeowners because they have an industrial-level power draw and are very expensive. You can have a level 3 charger installed at your industrial building.
