AC WORKS® Wisdom: Level 1 EV Charging

Posted by Christopher Hahn on

When figuring out your EV charging setup, it is important to know what each level of charging does for you. You may have seen level 1, level 2, or level 3 in your vehicle’s user manual or on one of Tesla’s charging adapter boxes, so what does it mean?

This week, we will focus on Level One charging. Level one charging is defined as charging with a 120-volt connection. The connection that is included with most EVs and charging stations is a household plug. Using a household outlet is also sometimes referred to as “trickle charging” because it charges at roughly 3 to 4 miles per hour. When using a household outlet, the EV charger will most likely follow the 80% rule and set the charging limit to 12 Amps. Since this is a low current, it is best to use this connection overnight, during long breaks between usage, or when other connections aren’t available.

If you have any more questions about EV charging or need help finding the right adapter for your EV charger, please give us a call, email us, or shoot us a text. Tune in next week when we discuss level 2 EV charging.
