Types of EV chargers

Level 1

Existing power point (10-15 Amp, single phase), used in combination with a specialised cable which is typically supplied with the vehicle.

Typically used in standalone domestic homes.

This method will add between 10 and 20km of range per hour plugged in.

It will top up daily use, but will not fully recharge a typical pure electric vehicle overnight.

Level 2

A dedicated AC EV charger at up to 7kW (32 Amp, single phase).

Typically installed in homes, apartment complexes, workplaces, shopping centres, hotels, etc – anywhere the vehicle will be parked for a while.

This method will add up to 40km of range per hour plugged in.

It will top up average daily vehicle use in an hour, or deliver a full recharge overnight.

Level 3

A dedicated DC EV charger at power levels from 25kW to 350kW (40 – 500 Amp, three phase)

Typically used in commercial premises and road-side locations to provide for faster recharging than Level 1 and 2 can achieve.

At the lower end, this method will add up to 150km of range per hour plugged in

At the upper end, this method can fully recharge some electric vehicles in 10 to 15 minutes.

Note that Australian law requires that licensed electrical contractors conduct the installation of all permanently wired electrical equipment.
