Why is an EV Changer Needed ?
Charging via a standard outlet is possible, but it has its limits. Most homes have a standard 12-amp, 120-volt power source, which simply can’t fully charge the vehicle quickly. With a standard outlet, the vehicle won’t fully charge overnight, so it might not be able to go more than 50 miles the next day.
There is a huge difference when the capacity is upgraded with a Level 2 charger installation. The Level 2 chargers function at 240 volts, which means the time it takes to charge the vehicle is much faster. With a faster charger, no matter how far you need to go, it’s possible to use the electric vehicle as an everyday vehicle instead of having to wait longer for it to charge.
There are various current ratings available for the Level 2 chargers, depending on your needs. They can range from 12 amps to 48 amps. A 16 amp charger will charge the vehicle twice as fast as a standard outlet. If the charger is 40 amps, it can charge the vehicle around a sixth of the time.
The charger installed will also have other features that can help you manage the charging. These come with an app that makes it possible to see what the current charge is, set delays if it’s necessary to wait to charge the vehicle, or adjust the current to make sure the vehicle is charging properly.
Electric vehicles can go much farther today, but only if they’re fully charged. Instead of limiting how far the car can be driven due to how long it takes to charge, it’s better to have a fast-charging system that’s installed in your home. Milestone’s charger installation will help you get more from your vehicle, so you can enjoy driving it everywhere.
Circuits for the EV Charger
The charger installation connects the charger with the electricity in the home, allowing it to pass through the electrical panel. To do this, the panel needs to have the right capacity for the current, otherwise, the circuit breakers will trip regularly or the vehicle may not charge at all.
When it comes to the highest-rated chargers that install the fastest, it may be necessary to upgrade the electrical panel to avoid the breakers tripping. Smaller chargers may still be able to charge the vehicle quickly, though not as fast as the highest-rated ones, depending on your needs. These may not exceed the power provided by the current electrical power. At Milestone, we can help you go through the available options and make the right choice for your needs.
If you do require an electrical panel upgrade to handle the car charger installation, our team can do it properly and safely. We provide panel upgrades for many different reasons, not just for the installation of car chargers, and can give you a quote before any work is done.
