Level 2 EVSE Comparison Chart

Looking for a quicker way to charge your EV? A level 2 charger is capable of charging at much faster rates than the charger that came with your car—all of the ones below can charge 5 times as fast as the charger that came with your car.

We recommend plug-in chargers (chargers that plug into a special, dedicated wall outlet), instead of hardwired chargers (which are wired directly into your electrical system), because plug-in chargers can be quickly removed or moved if you get a new house, etc.

In order to use one of these chargers, you’ll need a dedicated outlet installed,
usually by an electrician. Below is a comparison of the best Level 2 chargers you can buy right now, along with details you need to know to get the charger installed, like what kind of plug, and so on.

NOTE: Most EVs are not capable of charging at more than 30amps from a home charger at this point. So you are unlikely to see much benefit from a charger above 30 amps. However, future EVs are likely to charge faster, so a more future-proof Level 2 charger may be worth it.

To see what speed your car is capable of charging at, see this chart.
