The guide on how to charge the electric vehicle

The charging of the electric vehicles is in three different types; fast, slow, and rapid. The three types of charge main difference e are the charging speed that the charger will use to make your battery full. Here is the explanation of the three chargers.

The slow charger has the lowest output of the electric power of about 3KW. The type of charger is the same as the one that you will find at the regular place with a plugin that contains three pins. The charger takes between 10 and 12 hours to charge the modest battery of a small vehicle such as Nissan Leaf. The cars with the highest batteries with the highest capacity will take a lot of time, such as Tesla Model 3 might take between 16 and 18 hours for it to be at the maximum capacity. The Vehicle needs to charge overnight to have a meaningful amount of energy that can power the Vehicle throughout the day. Most of the slow connections for charging vehicles are available at homes ether through the wall box or by the use of a domestic socket. 

The second type of charger is the fast charger, which has a power output twice the speed of the slow charger. The quick charger power output is between 7 KW and 22 KW. The above means they charge the electric Vehicle fast; for example, the 7KW charger will take 5 hours to charge the Nissan leaf while the 22 KW connection will load it with one or two hours. The fast charger makes the demand for public charging network, and the most common charger is seven untethered (A person can use his cable and not the one attached to the wire). The second type of 7KW charger is the availability of the socket inlet where one plugin the charger. It is easy to install the 7KW charger in different homes, and working places provide the wiring, and the electric output at your home can support it.  

Rapid charger takest the shortest time possible to charge the vehicle battery and is available in the motorways service vehicles. The charger’s ordinary type is the AC ones with the capacity to deliver 43 KW and the direct current of 50 KW. The two chargers will take less than one hour to charge the Nissan Leaf. For the battery not to have a short life span, one should always charge to 80 percent level.
