    Different L2 Options


    Level 2 charging refers to the voltage that the electric vehicle charger uses (240 volts). Level 2 chargers come in a variety of amperages typically ranging from 16 amps to 40 amps. The two most common Level 2 chargers are 16 and 30 amps, which also may be referred to as 3.3 kW and 7.2 kW respectively. These two amperages are the most common because they match the onboard charger (OBC) on many of the current electric vehicles.

    • Depending on the amperages, the difference between Level 2 chargers could be significant in charging times. Compare charging times with our Time To Charge Guide.
    • Explore your options for both 16 and 30 amp chargers in our online store.
