There are different types of electric vehicle chargers, including:

  • Level 1 Chargers: These chargers typically use a standard household electrical outlet (120 volts AC) and provide a slow charging rate. They are commonly used for overnight charging.
  • Level 2 Chargers: These chargers require a dedicated circuit and a higher-voltage power source (usually 240 volts AC). They provide faster charging compared to Level 1 chargers and are commonly found in residential, workplace, and public charging stations.
  • DC Fast Chargers (Level 3 Chargers): These high-powered chargers deliver DC power directly to the vehicle’s battery, bypassing the onboard charger. They offer the fastest charging speeds and are typically found in public charging stations along highways or in commercial areas.
