When it comes to charging your electric vehicle at home, Level 2 charging stations are a popular choice due to their faster charging times and greater convenience. However, not all Level 2 charging stations are created equal. In this article, we'll explore the differences between 32A, 40A, and 48A charging stations, and highlight the benefits of E-KITE as a 32A charging station.
Section 1: What is Level 2 Charging?
In this section, we'll provide a brief overview of what Level 2 charging is, and how it differs from Level 1 charging.
Section 2: Understanding Amps and Charging Times
We'll explain the relationship between the charging speed of Level 2 stations and the amperage rating, and how this affects charging times. We'll provide a comparison of the charging times for a typical electric vehicle with 32A, 40A, and 48A charging stations.
Section 3: The Pros and Cons of Higher Amperage Charging Stations
Here, we'll explore the advantages and disadvantages of 40A and 48A charging stations. We'll discuss the benefits of faster charging times, but also address the potential drawbacks such as increased installation costs, higher energy bills, and greater wear and tear on the vehicle's battery.
Section 4: The Benefits of E-KITE as a 32A Charging Station
We'll highlight the selling points of E-KITE as a 32A Level 2 charging station, including:
Lower installation costs: E-KITE's snap-on wall-mounted design makes installation quick and easy, without the need for professional electrical work. This can save you between $500-$1500 in installation costs compared to other stations.
Energy efficiency: E-KITE's SmartCharge technology stabilizes currents and minimizes heat loss during charging, resulting in energy savings of 20-30% per hour compared to 40A and 48A charging stations.
Battery health and safety: E-KITE's 32A charging current promotes healthy battery charging, maintains peak performance, and extends the lifespan of your EV's battery. The station also includes a suite of protective features, such as Earth Leakage Protection, Undervoltage Protection, Overvoltage Protection, Overcurrent Protection, Short-circuit Protection, and Lightning Protection.
Multi-EV compatibility: E-KITE's 26-foot charging cable provides ample reach to charge your EV in most locations. And, with Level 2 Charging compatibility with all SAE-J1772 electric vehicles, E-KITE is suitable for a range of EV models, making it a versatile and future-proof investment.
Easy to use: E-KITE's Powercard offers a secure and streamlined charging solution, eliminating worries about high voltage damage or unauthorized usage. Simply tap your card to access E-KITE and charge with ease.
We'll summarize the key takeaways of the article and emphasize why E-KITE is the ideal choice for Level 2 charging, especially for those who prioritize cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency, and long-term battery health and safety. We'll also highlight how the CCS Combo1 adapter can further enhance the charging capabilities of E-KITE, without requiring the purchase of a new charging station.
