It’s the perfect charger for overnight charging. Still asking, “Where can I charge my electric car close by?” Start at home! 
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging (Level 2 Charging): This electric car charger should be installed by a Oceanside-area electrician. It can charge your battery in a few hours.
  3. Public Charging/DC Fast Charging (Level 2 Charging): Public electric car charging stations are typically found in malls, hotels, parking garages, and gas stations. They are the fastest option, delivering an 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes.
