What Do I Do From Here?
Since you’ve come this far, I congratulate you. I mentioned the 7 best EV home charger stations for 2019, so from here it’s up to you to decide which one works for you.
It’s important to not overdo it with your upcoming buy. Find out what your EV’s or PHEV’s highest kW rate is and find a charger that meets it but does not exceed it.
Example: A 2011 Chevy Volt takes a maximum of 3.3kW. If you get #7 on the list above, that would be more than enough. If you buy something that can charge at 6.6 or 7.2kW, it would be pointless. Your vehicle can only take what the onboard charger can accept (3.3kW in the Volt).
Aside from that, you have the knowledge necessary to pick a home electric car charger.
