Electric Car Charging Times by Charger

Before you ask, “How long does it take to charge an electric car?”, you’ll first need to ask what kind of charger you’re using. Some options are more abundant around Marysville while other options can only be used by installing in your home or garage. Here are the common types of charging options and how long each option takes to get your electric car’s battery to full levels: 

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Level 1): This charger uses a normal three-prong outlet with a charging level of 110V/120V and is also known as Level 1 Charging. This charger usually takes about 24 hours or more to bring your battery to a full charge. This is good for overnight charging or topping off your car’s battery levels if you’ve been doing a good amount of driving during the day. 
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging (Level 2): This type of charger will more than likely have to be installed by an electrician. This method uses faster charging at levels of 240V+. Because of this, you can expect Level 2 Charging to take about 30-40 minutes to get your car to an 80% battery level. 
  3. Public Charging (Level 3): These types of chargers are usually available at parking garages, hotels, stores, malls, and other public places. These types of chargers usually provide Level 2 Charger speeds, so you can expect to get an 80% battery level in about 30-40 minutes or 100% in around an hour. Otherwise, they could take 4-11+ hours to get to 100% battery if they offer slower charging speeds.
