The Benefits of Installing an Electric Vehicle Charger from an Bentonville Electrician.
Although the costs to drive an electric vehicle are quite low compared to buying fuel for a conventional vehicle, it takes significant time to recharge the batteries after a trip. Most vehicles come with a Level 1 charger, which can plug into a standard 120-volt outlet but needs as long as 18 hours to fully charge a vehicle, depending on the battery capacity. A dedicated Level 2 charger installed by an electrician uses a 240-volt circuit and can deliver more power to your vehicle in less time.
The benefits of installing a dedicated electric vehicle charger include: Reducing charge time from as high as 18 hours to as little as 3 hours Allowing your vehicle to charge fully overnight as you sleep Reducing your dependence on public charging stations Enabling you to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates, if available in your area A Level 2 charger can make owning and driving an electric vehicle more enjoyable and convenient.
