J1772 charge port
Level 2 EV chargers use a 240-volt power source (e.g., oven or clothes dryer). Charging times are much faster than level 1.
Many modern houses have these outlets. Level 2 charging normally occurs in workplaces, business locations (hotels, gas stations, private parking lots), and public locations (on-street parking space, garages, streets, public parking lots- wherever cars are likely to be stationary for hours at a time).
Level 2 charging starts at a power rating of 6.6 kW, increasing to 19.2 kW depending on the level of current that the supporting circuitry can sustain.
Most home Level 2 charging, and almost all commercial Level 2 charging, is limited to 6.6 kW because (a) the onboard inverter on most existing EVs cannot handle significantly more than this level and (b) boosting the current typically requires the installation of more expensive higher-capacity circuitry.
