  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet) (Level 1 Charging): You can charge your electric car at home without special equipment. All this form of charging needs is a standard three-prong outlet. It can charge your car in about 24 hours, meaning it’s ideal for overnight charging.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging (Level 2 Charging): This is a 240V charging solution that a local electrician should install. It can charge your battery in a few hours and will top up your battery overnight.
  3. Public Charging/DC Fast Charging (Level 3 Charging): You’ll only find this electric car charger on the go. Places like malls, hotels, and parking garages feature this electric car charging station, and it’ll allow you to get up to 80% charge in as little as half an hour.
