An electric vehicle (EV) uses an electric motor powered by a large battery about 20kWh in size for propulsion. Since standard Level 2 charging supplies 3 kWh an hour it takes about 6-8 hours to charge the 20 kWh battery.
A 20 kWh battery is enough to enable a standard EV to travel approximately 150 kilometers on a single charge. This means the average electric car will need to be recharged approximately every two or three days. However, most EV drivers will likely charge their cars almost every day, so they will rarely need to fully recharge their batteries.
Charging an electric car is as a simple as connecting an electric appliance. A charging cable is used to connect the EV to the electrical network to supply 240 VAC current. The current is sent to the EVs on board charger which converts the electricity into a format which can be absorbed by the battery. Charging can be performed either at a specially installed home charging station or a public charging station.
