How do Level 1 chargers work?

Level 1 chargers are the chargers that often come with your electric vehicle. And they plug into 120-volt outlets. This is the same outlet you would plug your phone charger into. Level 1 chargers add range very slowly to your EV.

To see just how slow a Level 1 charger is compared to a Level 2 charger, check out Lectrium’s EV calculator tool!

How do level 2 chargers work?

Level 2 chargers, on the other hand, will often require installation. They plug into 240-volt outlets. These are the outlets used for the typical dryer or air conditioning unit. Level 2 chargers add more than 30 miles of range per hour. For the average electric vehicle, this means it will take between 4 and 5 hours to get to full charge.

Lectrium will arrange the installation of a Level 2 charger for you in a simple and seamless way!

Which EV charger is best for me?

Selecting your EV charger is a nuanced decision. Make sure to take into consideration your EV, your home's electrical setup and your desires for charging time. Contact Lectrium for their recommendation on the best charger for you.
