Mister Sparky EV Charging Station Installation, Tampa

In recent years, the number of electric vehicles (EVs) ownership has increased significantly. As the demand for environmentally-friendly vehicles increases, so does the need for EV charger stations in individuals’ homes. If you have a plug-in hybrid or a fully electric vehicle in Tampa, you can trust Mister Sparky for your EV charging station installation needs.

EV Chargers

More than 95 percent of electric car owners charge their vehicles at home using an EV charger, with two crucial considerations being the property’s electrical capacity and the choice of charging unit.  Installing a suitable EV charger can make your electric vehicle ownership more convenient and efficient.

EV chargers are categorized into three levels:

  • Level 1 Chargers

Level 1 EV chargers represent chargers that typically come standard when purchasing an electric vehicle. These chargers can be plugged into a standard outlet, but they take longer to charge—usually between 40-50 hours to fully charge to 80 percent.

  • Level 2 Chargers

Level 2 EV chargers are much faster at charging the vehicle, typically, providing about 70 miles of range for each hour spent charging. However, these types of EV chargers require a licensed electrician to install them, since they need around a 200-volt circuit to deliver sufficient current for rapid charging. These tend to be the most popular EV chargers for those who own EVs.

  • Level 3 Chargers

Level 3 chargers are fast – charging a battery up to 80 percent in a mere 30 minutes – but due to the industrial supply of current needed to charge, they’re typically not installed in people’s homes. You may notice these types of EV charges in public charging stations.

Which EV Charger Should I Use?

Choosing an EV charger will depend on how long you want it to take to charge your electric vehicle. If time is not of essence, you could use a Level 1 charger and just know that it will take between 40-50 hours to fully charge to 80 percent and about 6 hours if you have a plug-in hybrid electrical vehicle. (PHEV)

If you want a faster charging option, you could install a Level 2 charger, which requires between 150 and 200 amps. Many people prefer a Level 2 charger because they know they can power up their EVs in a much shorter time than Level 1.
