Level 2 Residential Electric Vehicle Chargers
Before the accessibility of in-home charging for electric vehicles, charging them was a significant challenge. Many early electric vehicle owners relied on public charging stations, which were few and far between, often requiring long wait times or inconvenient detours to access. Additionally, many of these stations were slow-charging, meaning that fully charging your electric vehicle could take several hours. Even when charging stations were available, they were often incompatible with certain types of electric vehicles, which adds additional worry. This made owning and driving an electric vehicle more difficult and less convenient than traditional gasoline-powered cars.
The introduction of level 2 Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers for home use has made a significant impact on the EV market. These chargers, which provide faster charging speeds compared to standard level 1 chargers, have brought about a new level of convenience and accessibility for EV owners. With level 2 chargers installed at homes, EV users can now conveniently charge their vehicles overnight, taking advantage of off-peak electricity time and waking up to a fully charged vehicle ready for the day ahead. This is great because you do not have to worry about running out of power during the day and lessen the range anxiety some members have while driving electric.
