What You Need to Know About Car Charging Stations
Also referred to as Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations, this is the way your car gets fuel when it doesn't run on gas. This gives you a place to plug in your car and charge it, while you are at home.
Here are some other things that you should know about residential car charging stations:
- On average, EV owners do 80% of their car charging at home. This is partly due to the fact that it can still be a challenge to find public use chargers. It makes it easy and convenient to simply have access to the station that you have at home.
- Modern-day chargers are safer for both the car and the station. Original design flaws involving too much maximum current output were known to potentially damage the EV, the charger or both. As the popularity surge took hold, these flaws were quickly worked out. Now driver, car and station are safe.
- Obviously, for anyone with a short commute, you do not need a full charge. That makes it much easier to get the amount of charge needed for a brief jaunt. However, for longer trips, it means charging overnight, if not longer. On average, depending on the amount of travel you have ahead of you, charge times can be as minimal as 10 minutes or as long as 6-8 hours.
- Obviously, much of it depends on the type of car you have. So, for instance, the needs of a Nissan Leaf will differ from that of the 120-135 kW Tesla Model S. Tesla chargers are proprietary though, while other charging stations can be used by a variety of types of EV cars.
