  • What is a Level 2 charger?

  • Level 2 chargers use a 240-volt electric supply, like an electric clothes dryer. The advantage is they charge the EV 3 to 10 times faster than a Level 1 (120-volt) charger can.

  • What is Level 3 charging?

  • Unlike Level 1 and Level 2 charging that uses alternating current (AC), Level 3 charging uses direct current (DC). The voltage is also much higher than Level 1 2 charging, which is why you don鈥檛 see level 3 chargers installed at home. Very few residential locations have the high-voltage supply that is required for level 3 charging.

  • What is a type 2 charging cable?

  • A Type 2 charging cable is the European-standard plug-type used by every new electric car. It features a seven-pin connection at both ends, which allows you to easily plug in to every home wallbox, and most public car chargers. This cable allows for slower AC charging (up to 43kW), rather than DC rapid charging, which requires a CCS connection.

  • What type of charging cable do I need for my car?

  • When it comes to the different types of charging cables, you have the choice of a 120 volt (level 1) or 240 volt (level 2) chargers. Opting for a level 2 charger is the best option as it provides faster charging, which is far more desirable.
