2.Your budget for a level 2 ev charger
Budget will be key for most people. There is a wide range of price points to suit every budget. When you have a certain psychological price, you can further narrow the range of choices. This can also save a lot of time for your next choice.
3.Style and looks of the level 2 ev charger
Although the level 2 ev charger is a functional device first, some people also want it to also look nice – it is attached to your home after all!
Level 2 EV chargers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, ranging from the positively tiny and discreet Sync EV, the slick Scandinavian style of the Easee One to the custom designs of the Andersen A2 plus everything in between.
When choosing a level 2 ev charger to suit you and your home, consider:
The style – which types of level 2 ev chargers do you just like the look of?
The location – think about where you’d like your level 2 ev charger to be located. This might affect your choice – if it’s out of sight, then perhaps you won’t be so bothered by the looks, but if it’s on the front of your house for all to see then maybe you’ll want something a bit more stylish.
Dimensions – some level 2 ev chargers are larger than others, so consider this alongside the charger location.
