At Home Charging
The amount of time it takes to fully charge your vehicle at home depends on the electrical service of the outlet you’re using.
“Level I” chargers use a regular 110-volt outlet and depending on the size of your battery can fully charge your car in 12-24 hours.
“Level II” chargers require a 240-volt outlet (the same kind as your clothes dryer) and may require an electrician to install. Most people choose to install level II charging in their garage, but stations can also be installed outside and are even safe to use when it’s raining.
