Types of Public Charging Stations
Public charging stations typically offer two types of chargers:
- Level 2 Charging Stations
- Fast Charging or Level 1 Charging Stations
Level 2 charging stations take a longer time to charge. These are typically located where a car may stay in one place for several hours, like a mall, office, or other business.
DC Fast charging stations are the quickest charging stations available. These charging stations are typically used when you need a quick charge to get on with your day. On average, EVs can gain 100 miles of range when charging for around 30 minutes at this station.
DC Fast charging stations are more likely to cost money to use than level two charging stations. However, whether a station costs money will depend on who owns the station.
How to Use an EV Charging Station
Charging an EV at a public charging station can be broken down into three easy steps.
Step One: Open Your Charging Port
Open your EV’s charging port when you arrive at a station to charge your vehicle.
Step Two: Plug in Your Charger
Grab the charger from the station and plug it into your vehicle.
Step Three: Pay and Walk Away
EV charging stations usually allow you to pay on an app or the station itself. Use a credit or debit card to pay for your session. Then, just let it charge!
While your EV is charging, you can relax in your vehicle, shop, or grab a bite to eat.
