Level 1, 2, and Level 3 Electric Car Chargers
The difference in the levels of chargers is the speed of how long it takes to charge the car the higher the level the more power is required from the home.
A level 1 charger uses 120 volts and takes the longest to fully charge an electric vehicle. A level 2 electric charger uses 240 volts and can charge a car in 3-4 hours, meanwhile, a level 3 charger or DC fast charging uses more volts and can charge even faster.

Benefits of a Home Charging Station
- Home EV Chargers are Cost-Efficient: Having an electric car charger at home saves you money in the long run. While you may think about the initial upfront cost of installation and the increased electric bills, you’ll be saving money on no longer needing to get fuel if your car is a hybrid. You can use this cost calculator to compare the investment of a home charging station to repeatedly visiting a public one.
- Charging Your Vehicle At Home Saves You Time: You’ll no longer have to worry about finding a charging station near you and waiting around for it to charge long enough. With an EV charging station in your home, you’ll save time and be able to conveniently charge your car whenever you need.
- EV Charging Stations Increase Your Property Value: EV charging stations can increase your property’s value which means your home will be worth more if you decide to sell it one day.
Do I need an EV charger at home?
The simple answer is that it depends. If you work at a place that offers charging stations or you park in a lot/garage that has charging stations available, it may not be worth it for you. It also depends on if you live in an area where there are lots of charging stations available. If your city doesn’t have many options for charging stations, it’s more important that you have one installed at home. Overall, no matter where you live or work, having a charging station at home is more convenient, saves you time from traveling to and from charging stations, and money in the long run.
Where can I charge my EV if I don’t want to install a charger at home?
You can find EV charging stations by searching for “charging stations” on your Maps app on your phone. This will tell you how far the station is, the hours of operation, etc. You can also drive around to parking lots and garages to see if there are any stations installed.
This is not the most convenient way to charge your car, and when you’re in a time crunch, you don’t want to fight for a spot at the charging station. Installing a charger at home can give you peace of mind of always having a charged car ready to take you where you need to go.
Can I install my own EV charger?
No, you cannot install your own EV charger. It requires an experienced electrician to evaluate your home’s electrical work to install an EV charger properly.
