Level 2 Charging Guide

Level 2 Charging

Level 2 home charging is an essential part of EV ownership. Nothing beats the convenience of plugging in at home. But the various options can be overwhelming.

Which type of charger should you use?

Plug-In vs. Hardwired


NEMA 14-50 outlet is often the most economical choice. Many EVs come with a NEMA 14-50 adapter or they can be purchased at relatively low cost. They can provide a maximum of 9.6 kw or 20-30 miles of range per hour of charging. (Note that many NEMA 14-50 adapters limit max power to 7.6 kw)

250v connector

✅ Recommended

Hardwired wall connectors provide the most reliable performance and the fastest charging speeds, especially important for charging large EVs such as trucks. They can provide a maximum of 11.5 kw or 30-40 miles of range per hour of charging. We recommend the Tesla Wall Connector because of its high quality, value, and user-friendly design. It’s now available in both the Tesla charging standard and J-1772 used by all other EV brands.

Because every home is different we’re happy to visit you and provide a free evaluation along with a quote. In many cases we can do same-day installation. To make your decision easier we charge the same price for installation of a NEMA 14-50 outlet or a hardwired wall connector. We can supply a Tesla Wall Connector (Tesla or J-1772) for additional cost, or you can supply an EV charger of your choice.
