    Level 1

    Level 1 uses the charger included with the electric vehicle. Level 1 chargers can be plugged into a standard 120V outlet. *8-15 hours recharge time*

    Level 2

    Level 2 chargers do not come with the electric vehicle and are sold separately and the typical plug you install in your home garage. Level 2 chargers use a 240V outlet and the most recommended charger. *3-8 hours recharge time*

    Level 3 is known as DCFC (DC Fast Charge) and the fastest way to charge electric vehicles. Not all EV cars are able to use a DCFC charger. *20 minutes – 1 hour recharge time*
