EV Charger Types
Australia’s electric vehicle charging landscape primarily consists of three different types of chargers, each offering its own unique features and charging times:
Standard Level 1 Chargers: These budget-friendly chargers are the slowest among EV charging options, predominantly found in residential areas. A standard charger refuels an electric vehicle at a rate of approximately 5 kilometres per hour using a conventional 120-volt outlet.
Enhanced Level 2 Chargers: Representing an upgrade from standard chargers, enhanced chargers offer faster-charging speeds between 10 to 40 kilometres per hour. They rely on 240-volt outlets, which are commonly found in commercial and industrial buildings as well as public charging stations.
Ultra-Fast DC Chargers: The premium choice, ultra-fast chargers employ direct current (DC) to deliver exceptionally rapid charging speeds, providing up to 100 kilometres of range in a mere 30 minutes. These high-speed chargers can be found at highway rest stops, petrol stations, and other public charging locations with access to high-voltage power supplies.
