Owners of electric vehicles (EVs) are often concerned about how and when to charge their vehicles. Unlike the routine of refueling at gas stations for conventional cars, charging an electric vehicle requires more thoughtful planning. However, with the increasing demand for eco-friendly alternatives, Level 2 public EV charging stations are becoming more prevalent.
Whether you are an EV owner or considering adding a public EV charging station to your commercial property, understanding the working principles of an EV charger is crucial.
Both electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles require an EV charger to maintain a fully charged battery, similar to any rechargeable device or electronic gadget.
Essentially, an EV charger draws electrical current from the connected grid and transfers this electricity to the vehicle, similar to charging any other device by plugging it into the wall.
Charging your EV is a versatile process: it can be done at home, in the office, at a restaurant, during shopping, while parked on the street, or even at a (ironically named) charging station.
Hence, the decision to opt for an EV and the consideration of how to charge it are interconnected. However, due to its distinctive functioning compared to what we're accustomed to, it can be perplexing, particularly considering the plethora of new definitions one must grasp.
Charging your electric vehicle (EV) is incredibly versatile—you can do it at home, in the office, at a restaurant, while shopping, parked on the street, or even at what used to be called a gas station.
Choosing an EV and figuring out how to charge it are interconnected decisions. Yet, the process can be a bit perplexing because it operates differently from what we're accustomed to, and there are numerous new definitions that may be challenging to grasp.
Establish Your Home Charging Solution
The home EV charger comes with the necessary hardware to install your new Level 2 charger inside your garage or outside your home. If you wish to transport the charging station to a second residence or cabin, an additional mounting plate makes it convenient to carry and install near the grid.

How Public EV Charging Stations Work
If you are parked in front of an EV charging station, there are a few things you'll need to determine. The station may be provided free of charge, may require a key FOB or another access device, or it may require credit card payment—similar to other parking situations, such as being allowed to park for free if you're a customer or needing to pay a parking meter during specific times and on specific days. The device and posted notices should make it clear how to use the charging station.
For organizations looking to add public EV charging stations to their property, the charging units provide options for how others will use them. Both units allow you to control output and charging times, and one includes additional 4G LTE and RFID card reader capabilities, allowing you to generate income from the charger.
