Best Home EV Charger
he choice for the best home EV charger station varies upon the type of battery of the car, how many miles the car drives per day, and how long do you have available to charge it. In a nutshell, if you drive a lot and don’t spend too much time at home, you want to make sure you have a more powerful output able to charge your car overnight within 6-10 hours for example. That is called a Level 2 EV charger. This is clearly the best type for most EV owners. The cost of the materials and installation is actually pretty small when you compare it with how much time it will free you every day for years to come.

Some people upgrade the main panel, and/or add a subpanel to the garage. Other need to add a new outlet all together and/or make sure it is GFCI.
