Do I have to install a charging station to charge my car at home?

    There are two options for home charging:

    A home charging station, which requires a 240V dedicated circuit and is designed for a full charge within eight hours under normal circumstances. This can be done while engaged in other at-home activities such as sleeping, enjoying dinner, or watching TV. Remember, you won’t need a full charge from 0 to 100% every time. You may get into the habit of charging opportunistically whenever your EV is at a half “tank,” low, or nearly full, just because it’s easy.

     

    A portable charger that is connects you  EV to a regular 120V wall socket and “trickle” charges your car in emergency situations, when a more practical charging regimen isn’t available. A full charge may take up eighteen hours  and may require a dedicated circuit to be installed in your garage.
