Types Of Electric Vehicle Charging Outlets In York and Lancaster When it comes to charging your electric vehicle at home, you have options. For residential chargers, it’s recommended that homeowners opt for either a type 1 or type 2 charger. The three types of EV chargers are:
This type of charger fits into a standard, 120V outlet. It’s possible to use a standard electrical outlet to charge an EV, but it will take over 24 hours for a full charge so it’s better to install a dedicated outlet for your charger.
This charger utilizes the same voltage as a dryer or water heater. For a dedicated EV charger, professional installation is required. This is the most popular type of charger for at-home EV stations. You can fully charge your vehicle in less time than a type 1 – generally in under 10 hours.
A different type of charger that utilizes direct current. This charger style is not available for residential use. These EV chargers are found at gas stations, along highways, near airports and other places for public use. Some people argue it’s possible to install this charging station for residential use, but it’s excessive – you wouldn’t install a gasoline station in your yard to fuel your car, would you?
