Level 2 (220 Volt AC) - Commercial & Municipal Use

The typical Level 2 car charging stations offers a charge time of approximately 8 to 10 hours for a full charge. Level 2 charging is the most popular system used for business owners and municipalities for most applications used by the general public, as it offers a quick recharge time.  This voltage is commonly found in most commercial buildings.

Level 2  (220 Volt AC) - Commercial & Municipal Use

Level 2 Rapid Charge is quickly becoming the most popular system used by home owners as it offers a much faster charge time – in most cases half the time of the typical Level 2, approximately 2.5 to 6 hours for a full charge. The Rapid Charge electric car charging station is wired specifically to your electric car manufacturer's exact specifications, resulting in the fastest charge possible

Level 3 (480 Volt AC) - Strictly Commercial & Municipal Use Only

Unlike Level 2 charging systems, Level 3 offers fast charging, fully charging an electric car battery in 30 minutes or less. Level 3 charging systems are the perfect choice for stop and go charging. Level 3 charging stations are capable of charging multiple electric cars, all at the same time. Level 3 charging is the perfect choice for travelers that are on the go, not expected to be in one place too long - whether they are shopping, eating at a restaurant, or making a quick stop at a municipality - Level 3 is the way to go!
