How To Choose The Right EV Charger?

If you’ve determined that the supplied charger isn’t adequate for your daily charging needs, you’ll need to consider a number of factors to determine which EV charger is right for you.

• Price: There is a wide selection of electric car chargers in different ranges available. You should choose according to your budget. There are many companies available from where you can easily buy EV fast charger at reasonable rates.

• Plug-in or Hardwired: EV chargers are available as a plug-in or wired options. The plug-in offers the flexibility to simply remove the charger for use elsewhere, or perhaps ship it in as a replacement if you run into problems. The cable charger is permanently attached to the wall and requires an electrician to unplug and unplug it.

• Cable Length: EV chargers come with cables that can range from 12 feet to 25 feet long. Choose one whose cord is long enough to reach your car's charging port wherever you park it. Get a cable that is at least 20 feet long.

• Power supply: Your electric car charger must be able to supply at least 32 amps (7.7 kW) and ideally 40 amps (9.6 kW) to the car. We recommend this because even if the electric car you currently own can't use that much power, the next electric car will most likely do, and you'll be upgrading your garage in the future by getting the right charger today.

• Certified safety with a 3-year guarantee: Today there is a large selection of EV chargers on the Internet. Many of these products are low-quality, low-cost units that are not safety certified and have very short warranties. Make sure the EV charger you get is certified for safety by reputable organizations and has a minimum 3-year warranty.
