Level 2 chargers are the most common chargers we install. These systems can substantially cut down charging times from several hours to just a few hours. Level 2 charging equipment is compatible with all electric vehicles and plug-in electric hybrid vehicles.
Level 2 equipment offers charging through a 240V, AC plug and requires installation of home charging or public charging equipment. These units require a minimum dedicated 40-amp 240-volt circuit on a #8 THWN copper wire unless there are long distances involved, then we will size your wire to match the distance so you don’t damage your new charger due to voltage-drop.
Depending on the battery technology used in the vehicle, Level 2 charging generally takes 4 to 6 hours to completely charge a fully depleted battery. Charging time can increase in cold temperatures. Level 2 chargers are commonly found in residential settings, public parking areas, places of employment and commercial settings.
