The first ever electric vehicle was invented between 1932 and 1939 by Robert Anderson, a Scottish inventor whose invention was nothing more than a crude electrical carriage. Fast forward to 2018 and the craze for electric vehicles has risen so much, that Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, allows anyone to copy his patents for his Tesla vehicles. The only drawback is the charging aspect, and vehicles’ charging stations. In this article we will discuss home electric vehicle charging stations, such as those from eMotorWerks, and how they can benefit you and your vehicles.
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
An electric vehicle charging station, or an EV Charging station, includes all of the components needed to charge and re-charge a vehicle. Some vehicles have their own electric converters as part of their factory manufacturing. In other cases, certain electric vehicles must be charged with a charging station and with certain plugs. These charging stations are often used when traveling, knowing that there may not be any charging stations close to the hotel or rental home of the traveling destination.
These electric vehicle charging stations are very versatile and small enough that they CAN be carried inside of the same vehicle used for travelling. The way that these stations work, whether you’re using one on a city street corner, or by a gas station, or your own home EV charging station, they all work roughly the same, basically by converting high powered current, into electricity that your vehicle’s battery can manage.
There are different levels of EV charging stations as you’ll see at https://emotorwerks.com/store/residential.
Level 1 EV Charging Stations: These use a 120V alternate current (AC) plug and can be plugged into any regular outlet or can be used with an outlet adapter if you’re in another country. These can deliver two to five miles of range per charging hour.
Level 2 EV Charging Stations: These can be used for home or commercial purposes and use a much larger 240V plug for home use, and 208V plug for commercial. You’ll get anywhere from 10 to 60 miles of range per every hour of charging.
DC Fast Chargers: These are the heavy hitters of EV charging stations and can give your vehicle 60 to 100 miles of range with just 20 minutes of charging. Due to such a high rate of power conversion, these are only available for commercial use such as the government’s Department of Energy.
In conclusion, every electric car needs a great EV charging station. We discussed what they are and how they are used, as well as the three different levels that exist to categorize these charging stations. The average price of these home electric vehicle charging stations is anywhere from $500 to $1,000 depending on the brand and type or level of station. With more and more Teslas on our roads, we know that a global energy shift is happening and we need to understand and use this great and green technology.
