Level 1 Plug-in Car Charging Stations Pittsburgh-PA
Several electric cars come equipped with chargers that work with typical 120V electrical receptacles. These chargers use less power so they will work on a basic circuit, but they take a much longer time to charge your electric vehicle than a “Quick Charging station.” Even if your car comes with a low power charging option, you may want to consider using a dedicated 20 amp circuit to avoid tripping breakers or overloading circuits.
Level 2 (240V) Electric Vehicle Chargers
Not all Level 2 chargers are the same, even though they all have the same plug configuration. A Level 2 Residential Home Charging Station uses 240 volt split phase power from your home’s main electrical panel to recharge your electric car in four to eight hours, depending on the type of station and vehicle. Also, while all residential Level 2 chargers use the same voltage the amount of power transferred to your car per hour can vary depending on the amperage. In addition, some chargers are rated for only 20 amps at 240 volts. Importantly, as a rule the higher the amperage of a charging station the faster it will charge your car. The drawback of the larger chargers is that they require a little more effort and upfront cost in the installation.
