What is electric vehicle (EV) charging?

Electric vehicle owners have a lot of concerns about how and when they should charge their vehicles, and it makes perfect sense. Most of the world has spent their entire lives in gas-powered cars. As the gauge reaches empty, they fill up at one of the hundreds or thousands of gas stations. While charging an EV can be a bit more complicated than usual, it is becoming easier to do so.

Hybrid car charging calculator

You can use this electric vehicle charging time calculator also to calculate how long it will take to charge your hybrid car. Please note that some hybrid cars do not support the fast charging, but they can only take in for example 3.7kWh even with faster charger.

What are the basics of electric vehichle charging?

Let’s talk about a few terms you will need to know when it comes to EV charging:

KWh = Kilowatt hours

To calculate the power delivered, kilowatt-hours are used. The vehicle's battery size is expressed in kWh. This has an impact on its charging time and range.

KW = kilowatts

The maximum charge power of a charging device will usually be expressed in kilowatts. Knowing the dimensions of a car's battery will allow you to calculate how quickly a charger can charge your battery.
Battery size / Charging power = Charging time

Public charging

Public charging for EVs is similar to fueling at gas stations. On-route charging is also known as public charging and it is available to everyone. These stations are often located in close proximity to other services, such as shopping malls, restaurants, and stores near major roads. Public charging stations can be either fast or regular charging. This helps to reduce "range anxiety".

Private charging

The majority of EV charging takes place at home or at work. In 2017, more than 85% of global chargers were private. These stations are not accessible to everyone driving by. Private charging stations are usually located in residential and office buildings. The maximum charging power is typically 22 kW, depending on how big the building is. Private charging stations can be shared by as many EV drivers and owners as they wish. An EV driver can see the private charging station that is available to him/her via the mobile app.

What is an EV Charger?

For electric vehicles as well plug-in hybrids, an electric charger is necessary to charge the battery.

How does electric vehichle (EV) charging work?

At its basic, an electric vehicle charger pulls power from either the 240v outlet or the grid that it's hardwired into. Then, it charges the vehicle using the same method as any other appliance.

EvoCharge EVSE Level 2 EV Charging Station

A J1772 socket is generally standard for electric vehicles (unless you have a Tesla, or are trying to use a Tesla charging station). This plug can be thought of as a device charger cord. For example, if your device requires Mini-USB and you have a USB cord, it cannot be used to charge the device with it without an adaptor.
Teslas use its unique connectors to connect to the vehicle. This means that a Tesla charger cannot work on a Tesla vehicle and an adaptor cannot work on a Tesla car.
There are adaptors available and can be bought online. But it's important for drivers that they know which type of chargers they are parking in front. Commercial entities should also be aware of the fact that Tesla chargers may not be available on their parking lot or property.
There are several things to consider when parking near an EV charging station. One, the station might be provided at no cost, may require a key FOB (or other access devices), or may require payment by credit card. This is similar to other parking situations. For example, customers may only be allowed to park in certain areas for free. Or you may have to pay a parking tax during certain times and days. The charging station should be clearly marked on the device as well as posted notices.
EvoCharge offers two options to allow organizations to add public EV-charging stations to their property: the iEVSE Plus (or iEVSE Plus). Both units can be controlled for output and charging times. The iEVSE Plus offers 4G LTE and RFID card reading capabilities, so you can make income with the charger.

How to find electric vehichle charging stations?

You can find charging stations for electric cars in many locations, including major shopping centers, street corners, courthouses, and even driveways of private homes. Many of the more than 100,000 EV charging points are open to the general public, and many are completely free.
However, some electric car charging stations require memberships or payment to be able to charge your vehicle. It may take some planning to find the best one for you. It won't mean you have to breathe in the fumes of a gas station when you get there.
Use these apps if you are in a hurry or want to be able to charge free for your trip. All three of these apps are available online or on Android or iOS.


You should only use this app to locate stations. They provide a great user experience, excellent filters, and numerous stations are available.

Open Charge Map

This open-source map is maintained by a consortium of nonprofits, companies, and users. It has a large list of electric charging station listings and is well designed. It's well worth downloading, especially to compare it against PlugShare.

Alternative Fueling Stations

This map app is managed by the US Department of Energy. While it might not become your preferred app, it can still be useful to have.

There are other ways to locate charging stations

Google Maps is a good place to start your search for stations. However, their listing is limited. FLO, ChargePoint, Tesla, and Tesla also provide ways to locate their network of charging stations. PlugShare and Open Charge Map provide a better selection and an excellent user experience.

How to charge a Nissan Leaf?

No doubt, our team will assist you in charging your Nissan LEAF the first time you get it home. You might wonder, however, if you give your Nissan Leaf to your partner, how do they charge it? Before we go into charging times for Nissan LEAFs, let's first discuss the basics.
  • Parking, make sure that the car is on.
  • Close the cap and lid of the charge port.
  • The charge connector should be plugged into the port. You will hear your Nissan LEAF's quick beep when it is charging.
  • The Nissan LEAF stops charging when the battery gets full. Unplug your charge connector to end charging.
  • Nissan LEAF240-Volt Public and Home Charging Time

    The most commonly used option for charging Nissan LEAFs in the 240-volt outlet equipped with a Portable Charging Cable. You have two options when it comes to this charger. No matter what your preference, you can order and set up a home charging station with assistance. This will enable you to recharge quickly from your home. There are over 30,000 public Level-2 chargers available in the United States for you to use while out and about.
    You can see the flat-to-full Nissan LEAF charge time below with this charge option.
  • With a battery of 40-kWh: Flat to fully recharge in 8 hours
  • With a battery of 62-kWh: Flat to fully charged in 11.5 Hours
  • Nissan LEAF 480 Volt Public DC Quick Charging

    Do you need to charge your LEAF quickly? 480-Volt DC Fast Charging is the fastest method. There are thousands of these quick charging stations that are 480-volt and many more are being built every day.

    How long does it take for an empty battery charge to be charged to 80 percent?

  • With a 40-kWh battery: 40 minutes
  • With a 62-kWh battery: 60 Minutes
  • What is the charging time of Nissan LEAF with 120-volt standard outlet?

  • With a fully charged 40-kWh battery: up to 150 miles EPA range
  • With a fully charged 62-kWh battery: up to 226 miles EPA on range
  • If you are interested in the power of the Nissan LEAF's 40 kWh battery, which produces around 147 hp, and the upgraded version, which generates 214, please click here.

    How to Tesla charging works?

    To help you understand the time it takes to charge your Tesla, let's first go over the different charging rates and their differences. This is an important factor in determining how long it takes to charge your Tesla EV.

    AC Charging Level 1

    As the universal charging option, Level 1 is what you see. You can charge your Tesla using any standard wall socket. 120V is the minimum voltage you can use to charge your electric vehicle. If you are wondering how long it takes to charge your 2021 Tesla Long Range Model 3 you will find that it is a matter of days and not hours. This is not ideal.

    AC Charging Level 2

    Level 2 chargers are most commonly found at third-party public charging stations. However, DC fast chargers continue their expansion (more on that in a moment). The 240V plugs at home usually provide around 40 amps, but can also reach as high as 80 amps. They are often more precisely placed than standard 120V outlets.
    This charger is the equivalent of your dryer or any other large appliance. Tesla recommends that owners install a Level-2 charger in their garage or home. It is easy to have an electrician or specialist install it.
    You can expect to see much faster speeds at Level 2 than you would at Level 1. These are not just minutes, but hours.

    Tesla Supercharger (DC Fast Charging)

    The Tesla Supercharger Network is a combination of proprietary charging stations that Tesla has developed and implemented. The automaker does not have to rely upon third-party charging networks as most other automakers currently produce electric vehicles. However, some chargers offer an adapter plug to support Tesla EVs.
    These Level 3 chargers do away with alternating current (AC) and instead use mainline power. They require more power from the grid (480+ V and 100+ Amps), but their output is truly "superior."
    It sounds great, but how long does it take for a Tesla to be charged by a Supercharger? Most Tesla Superchargers can charge up to 200 miles in 15 minutes depending on how fast they are charging. These charging speeds can range from 90 kW up to 250 kW depending on the Supercharger pile.
    Tesla shared plans to raise DCFC charging speeds to 300 kW, despite 250 kW being the current limit.
    You can search nearby Supercharger stations from the Tesla app, or your car's own dashboard. This will show you which stalls are currently available and their output. Navigation can help too. Tesla's built-in trip planner will automatically route you through Superchargers along the way to your destination.
    Tesla had reported 29,281 Superchargers at 3,254 locations around the world by the end of Q3 2021. There are many options. The automaker also plans to triple this network in the next two years.

    What is the best time to charge a Tesla?

    There are many factors that affect how long it takes to charge your Tesla. In terms of how fast you can plug your Tesla in, battery capacity, charging method, and power output all play a role.
    Below is a breakdown of the different charging methods and how long it takes to fully charge a Tesla starting with a low battery.
  • Level 1 AC (120V outlet at your home): 20-40 Hours
  • AC Level 2 (Third-party chargers/Tesla charging/Tesla home charge): 8-12hrs
  • Level 3 DCFC (Tesla Supercharger): 15-25 minutes
  • You may already know that Tesla's Supercharger network, particularly in pinches, is the best option. But, Superchargers don't work well for daily charging due to the large direct current. Instead, they are there to charge drivers while on the move or for longer trips. Tesla recommends that you charge your car at least Level 2 whenever possible.
