Overall Recommendations

  • Level 2 recharges most cars in a few hours and uses 240 voltage. (Level One uses 110V)
  • Connector – Combined Charging System (CCS) standard (that is based on SAE J1772)
  • For Level 2 be sure and ensure 40A dedicated circuit
  • Permits – check with your county to see if any required
  • Regulations – charger must be UL-listed (and keep it in holster please)
  • Installation – have a professional electrician do the installation
