    EV Chargers Level Comparison

    Making an educated choice on your electric car charging requirements in San Francisco requires an understanding of the various EV charger tiers. Electric vehicle (EV) chargers come in a range of levels, and MaxElectric is an expert in installing them all.  

    Level 1

    Is a 120V charger which uses a standard electrical outlet. It is useful for vehicles that are parked for a long time in a residential area.
    • Range per hour: Approximately 3-5 miles per hour of charge
    • Charging time: 16 hours ( better to use overnight) to charge an 80-mile battery
    • Location: Residential
    • Cost to charge: Level 1 chargers consume electricity as the other appliances do. The cost of charging depends on the type of electric vehicle and the driver’s habits.

    Level 2

    Is the most commonly used and the most useful charging station because they can work 6 times faster than Level 1. Most public charging stations are level 2. They are 240V and can have between 12 – 80 amps.
    • Range per hour: Approximately 20-60 miles per hour, depending on amps.
    • Charging time: 3.5 hours to charge a 80-mile battery

    Level 2 charging stations are perfect when you are parked for at least an hour (as at work, while you’re shopping, at the movies, at a restaurant). To use a level 2 charger at home, you need to call Max Electric, as it needs to be installed by a skilled electrician.

    Guide to Choosing and Using EV Chargers

    When selecting an EV charger for your San Francisco home or business, there are several key factors to consider:

    1. Charger Level: Determine which level of charger suits your needs. Level 1 chargers are slow but can be convenient for overnight charging. Level 2 chargers offer a faster charge and are suitable for daily use. Level 3 chargers are the fastest, primarily used in commercial settings.
    2. Compatibility: Ensure the charger is compatible with your EV. Most chargers work with a variety of models, but it’s important to check the specifics.
    3. Installation Space: Consider where the charger will be installed. You require a location that complies with local standards, is safe, and is easily accessible.
    4. Usage: Think about your daily driving habits and how often you will need to charge your EV. This will help determine the charger speed you need.
    5. Budget: Balance your requirements with your budget. While a faster charger might be more convenient, it may also be more expensive.

    Once installed, it’s crucial to use the charger correctly. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines. Regularly check the charger for any wear or damage, and if you notice any issues, contact a professional for maintenance. You may take maximum use of your EV in San Francisco by selecting the appropriate charger and utilizing it correctly.
