All Level 2 chargers use 240V, but charging speed will differ based on a charger’s amperage, or electrical current. Your need for speed will vary based on your EV’s range, your commute and driving style: a car with less range, a long commute or always driving at top speed may mean you could benefit from a faster charge at home. Most EVs can take in about 32 amps, adding around 25 miles of Range Per Hour of charging, so a 32-amp charging station is a good choice for many vehicles.
The time it takes to charge an electric car can be as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. This depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the EV charger.
A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW EV charger.
Most drivers top up charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full.
For many electric cars, you can add up to 100 miles of range in ~35 minutes with a 50kW rapid charger.
The bigger your car’s battery and the slower the charging point, the longer it takes to charge from empty to full.
