EV car charging stations are becoming commonplace in public. They are intended to serve the growing number of electric or hybrid vehicle owners in America today. All electrical car owners have a charging station in their garage. They use charging station to give their vehicle energy when not in use. However, there are more electric cars on the road today, and these cars need to stay charged. Municipalities (Denver included) have responded to increased demand by setting up charging stations throughout the city. This is great for commuters who have a long drive to make, or for general travelers who might need a boost. So how do EV car charging stations work?
There Are Different Types of EV Car Charging Stations
The different levels of voltage are broken down into three levels: 1, 2, and 3.
Level 1 is very basic and very familiar. Every electrical or hybrid car comes with a cord that can be connected to a wall socket. This means that the vehicle can be charged anywhere you are! The voltage power of Level 1 is 120 volts (or 15 amps), which is not very powerful. It takes a relatively long time to charge a vehicle at Level 1 because the voltage power is so low.
Most car owners have a Level 2 charger in their home. Level 2 is also the most common type of car charger found at EV charging stations. Level 2 sends a signal at 240 volts (or 30 Amps) and can get a car from empty to full in around 9 hours. Travelers passing through the DIA that are under half their battery should take advantage of this service at the Canopy Airport Parking® Garage. They will be back on the road in no time.
Level 3 is for fully electric cars only and can recharge a battery in under one hour. These are the three types of EV car charging levels. Customers can stop at any charging station and fill up their battery for a low cost.
