How Long Does it Take to Charge an Electric Car?

There are a few methods for charging your electric vehicle and the time it takes to charge will vary depending on which one you are using at the time. Here are the various charging options:

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging: This is the typical 110V/120V charging outlet you’ll find in your house, and is referred to as Level 1 Charging. This method is not fast, but is good if you need a little extra charge before you hit the road.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Home Charging: The Level 2 Charging method is professionally-installed. It is a rapid charger made for the brand and will have faster charging rates than a domestic outlet.
  3. Public Charging: Many parking garages, malls, hotels, apartment buildings, and even grocery stores in Channelview are great options for charging your vehicle in public.
