Electric Car Charger Options

There are two primary electric car charger options for EV drivers: public and private stations. So whether you’re lounging at home or on the go, you’ll never be without options. Here are the three different electric car charger types you’ll encounter as an EV owner:

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet) (Level 1 Charging): This is the standard grounded three-prong 110/120V outlet that you’ll find in any home. While this is the slowest method of charging, it requires no extra setup and you can get around 4 miles of range for every hour. 
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging (Level 2 Charging): The second type of at-home charging option, a Level 2 charging station is one of the most popular for busy drivers. Installing an electric charging system at home boosts your charging capabilities to 240V+, which means you can get around 12 to 30 miles of range per hour.
  3. Public Charging (Level 2 Charging or DC Fast Charging): These electric car charging stations are located all over the country in areas like malls, hotels, parking garages, and other hubs. You’ll either find Level 2 Charging capabilities or the ultra-quick DC Fast Charging stations – which can bring you from 0 to 80% charging in just 30 minutes!

Are Electric Car Charging Stations Free? 

If you’re looking for electric car charging stations around town, it pays to do your research. That’s because some electric car charging stations are free, while others cost money. How much will you pay? That price is usually set by the charging station itself, so it can vary from place to place. But on average, you can expect to pay around $7 to fully charge your vehicle. Pricing is generally a set charge by the kilowatt-hour.
