Before you get started, here are fun facts that will make your search for the perfect home charger for your new car easier:
Choose a location for your home charging station
1. Where do you park?
First, think about your parking space. Do you usually park your electric car outdoors or in your garage? This is very important because not all home charging stations are weatherproof. For weather-resistant units, durability also varies depending on how extreme the climate is.
So if you live in an area where your electric vehicle will be exposed to, for example, freezing winter conditions, heavy rains, or extreme heat, be sure to choose a home charger that can handle such extreme weather conditions.
2. Where do you install your home charging station?
Speaking of cables, when choosing a home charging station; Pay attention to the cable length provided. Each Tier 2 charging station has a different cable length from device to device.
With your parking space in mind, approximate the exact location where you want to install the Level 2 charging station to make sure the cable is long enough to reach your electric car gate!
