Electric Vehicle Charging Methods

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging: You can charge an electric car in a normal 110V/120V domestic charging outlet. This type of EV charging is often called Level 1 Charging. With this method, it will take a long time to fully charge your vehicle, but it’s a good solution for replacing the charge you used commuting to work that day.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Home Charging: Brand-approved charging units can be professionally installed and they are specially designed to charge your electric vehicle. This much faster than Level 1 charging, and naturally it is called Level 2 Charging.
  3. Public Charging: You can charge on the go many places in the Santa Monica area. Common charging spots include parking garages, parking lots for malls, hotels, grocery stores, drugstores, and department stores, and apartment buildings.
