Frequently Asked Questions
Generally, the charging of EVs occurs at different rates depending on the level of power delivery of the power station. Level 1, 2, and 3 charging stations deliver power to Electric Vehicles at different rates, which is the major difference between the three levels of charging stations. Consequently, the length of time it takes these levels of charging station to charge the same EV battery will differ significantly. Hence, you need to critically consider the most suitable charging station for effectively charging your EV. Frankly, you may need to consult an expert to help you choose the right charging station that meets your car requirements and home power capacity.
Compared to both level 1 and 2 chargers, Level 3 chargers deliver fastest and charge at the rate of between 3 to 20 miles in one minute. And while levels 1 and 2 chargers are AC (alternating current) chargers, level 3 are DC (direct current) chargers making them unique from every other charger with special features.
Depending on some primary criteria like the brand of your EV and its battery capacity, it can take between 30 to 60 minutes to charge an EV battery to 80% of its capacity or about 15 to 1200 miles in 60 minutes. Also, the temperature can be a deciding factor for the time taken to charge an EV battery as cold temperatures reduce the charging efficiency of a battery. In contrast, warm temperature enhances the rate of charging an EV battery.
The voltage required for a level 3 charger is much higher than that required for both Level 1 & 2 charging. Hence, installing a level 3 charger for homes and residential buildings is not advisable as very few residential sites have the required high voltage supply for level 3 chargers. Furthermore, the high cost of installing Direct Current Fast Chargers can be very significant, costing many thousands of dollars. Consequently, this increased cost can be more than purchasing most EVs making it impractical for residences even if your home can deliver 400-volt electric power.
