Best at Home EV Charger - Kazam EV
Soon, India will see the launch of several all-electric vehicles, ranging from homegrown to international manufacturers to private buyers. Although electric vehicles in our country will take some time to reach price parity with ICE vehicles, these upcoming EVs will help start the trend. But they need to be supported by proper charging infrastructure.
Charging an electric car is a simple process: You simply plug your car into a charger that is connected to the electric grid. EV chargers generally fall under one of the three main categories: Level 1 charging stations, Level 2 charging stations and DC fast chargers (also known as Level 3 charging stations).
Types of Electric Vehicle Charging
Level 1 EV charging:
Level 1 electric vehicle charging is rated at 120 volts. The hardware required for this, which is a cord with an attached control box, is supplied as standard with every electric vehicle. One simply has to plug in a three-plug (grounded) wall socket. It typically takes 16 to 20 hours to fully charge a vehicle’s battery, depending on its capacity, using this charging technology. The advantage of using this charging type is that it does not require the installation of additional hardware. Just need to park near a three-pin wall socket and plug in the charging cable. The drawbacks of this technique is that it takes a long time to juice the battery.
Level 2 EV charging:
Level 2 is rated at 240 volts for electric vehicles. This type of charging requires additional hardware. On the purchase of electric vehicles, some manufacturers will install an AC wall-box charger at the customer's home and in some cases to enable Level 2 charging, either in place of work, either free or otherwise. With its use, an electric vehicle can be fully charged for 6 hours or slightly more depending on the battery capacity. Level 2 charging is much faster than Level 1 charging. Not only this, but it is also called more energy-efficient. However, this charging technique is expensive due to the use of more sophisticated hardware.
Level 3 EV Charging:
The level 3 charge for electric vehicles will be found at public charging stations. Called DC fast charging, it converts AC current to DC current for direct storage in electric vehicle batteries. It is usually rated at 480 volts. Using a DC fast charger, an electric vehicle can be charged up to 80 per cent in less than an hour. Tesla superchargers are capable of reaching charging capacity within half an hour. The hardware required for the same is quite expensive and usually found at public charging stations. To use them, the service provider will have to pay a fixed amount.

How do EV Chargers Work?
Types of electric car charging stations. Charging an electric car is a simple process: You simply plug your car into a charger that is connected to the electric grid. The time it takes to charge your car will also vary depending on the charger you use.
Your electric utility will help you pay for charging.
With about 80% of EV charge being at home, the need to encourage off-peak charge is becoming increasingly necessary. As EV technology continues to develop and its degradation becomes inevitable, utilities will continue to join states and the federal government in supporting the rise of this technology. With special rate plans and discounts among many options, these programs will sometimes become more comprehensive and make it easier for the average consumer to enter the EV market.
