How Long Does it Take to Charge an EV at Home?

The time it takes to charge an electric vehicle (EV) at home depends on several factors, including the EV's battery capacity, the charging station's power output (Level 1 or Level 2), and the current state of charge. 

Here are some general estimates:

Level 1 Charging (120V): Level 1 charging uses a standard 120-volt household outlet, which is the slowest option. On average, it provides about 2 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging. 

To fully charge an EV with a moderate-sized battery (e.g., 60 kWh), it can take approximately 8 to 20 hours or more, depending on the initial battery state of charge and the specific EV.

Level 2 Charging (240V): Level 2 charging stations are more powerful, using a 240-volt dedicated circuit. The charging speed varies based on the station's power output, which is typically rated in amperes (A). Common Level 2 charging stations offer 16A, 32A, or higher. 

Here are some rough estimates for Level 2 charging:

  • A 16-amp Level 2 charger can add about 10-25 miles of range per hour.
  • A 32-amp Level 2 charger can provide approximately 20-50 miles of range per hour.
  • High-power Level 2 chargers can add even more range per hour, depending on the specific model and amperage.

Keep in mind that the actual charging time will vary based on the EV's battery size, the charging station's power output, and the initial state of charge of the battery. 

Many EV owners choose Level 2 charging for faster and more convenient charging at home, as it can provide a full charge overnight or within a few hours.

Additionally, some EVs have features that allow you to schedule charging times to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates, so you can ensure your vehicle is fully charged when you need it.
