iElectrical are the EV charger specialists that you can trust in the field. As EV technology continues to grow in popularity, the way electric cars are charged has evolved alongside this. EV charging is often divided into three categories: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. iElectrical understands that the higher the level, the more power is produced, and the faster the car charges. Nevertheless, charging times are also determined by the vehicle’s battery type and charging capacity, as well as the charging station’s power output.

Level 1 charging uses a conventional AC power connector, but is slower than other levels and possibly hazardous. Level 2 charging is quicker, with stations supplying up to 22 kW and offering around 120 km of range per hour. Level 2 charging is commonly utilised in residential, public parking, corporate, and commercial settings. Level 3 charging (DC fast charging) offers direct current electricity to the battery and may charge a car in minutes. These chargers are perfect for short-stop locations such as gas stations and fleet depots.

With experience and expertise in the EV charging space, we know that when it comes to AC and DC charging, iElectrical knows the difference between the two all depends on whether there is a conversion process or not. No matter how an EV is charged though, at the end of the day, the battery in the car is always charged with DC. With a DC charger, the direct current can flow into the battery directly, while with an AC charger, the electricity has to be converted to DC first.

iElectrical understands that the charging time for an EV is determined by the battery size, vehicle charging capability, and the DC charging curve. The charging capacity of the car varies by model and is measured in kW. With DC charging, the EV first takes a faster flow of power, then gradually begins to ask for less power as it fills up. The cost of charging an electric vehicle is determined by the kind of vehicle, battery size, and charging site. EV charging at home is the least expensive option, which is why iElectrical recommends EV owners to invest in a residential EV charger like the Schneider EVlink Home charger, which is available in 7.4kW and 11kW capacities in Australia.

iElectrical knows that most EV drivers will not need to charge their vehicle every night because most everyday travels will not come close to exhausting an EV’s full range. Most electric cars may be charged with an EV charger, such as the Schneider EVlink, in residential, business, or public parking locations. The kW rating of an EV charger influences the car’s range per hour. The cost of a ‘full to empty’ charge in comparison to a tank of gasoline is determined by the capacity of the battery. The maximum range is determined by the size of the battery and the efficiency of the EV. With iElectrical’s extensive knowledge of EV chargers, we can help businesses and individuals navigate the complex world of EV charging and provide the best solutions for their charging needs.
