Where to buy

The main reason is that Level 2 chargers provide more power, which means a faster charge time. Bosch Level 2 chargers provide up to 10 kilowatts (kW) of power2, while Level 1 chargers offer only 1.2 kW. This can make a significant difference when charging larger electric vehicles like SUVs and trucks.

Level 2 chargers are also more prevalent than Level 1 in public spaces, so most people will have an easier time finding a Bosch Level 2 charger if they need to recharge their electric vehicle.

Another reason that Bosch Level 2 is better than Level 1 has to do with safety. Level 2 chargers prevent the inadvertent touching of 120V wires by only providing access to the Level 2 connector when the plug is fully inserted into the car. With Level 1 chargers, there is always potential for someone to touch a 120V wire, even if the plug is not fully inserted. How safe is an EV battery is a question that often worries electric vehicle owners. You can also find out about this from the article on the site.

So if you have an electric vehicle, it’s definitely worth it to invest in a Bosch charger.

Bosch EV charging stations are made to withstand the harshest environments. If you live in an area that gets extreme weather or high temperatures, this is a great option for your electric vehicle needs. Plus, it comes with a 3-year warranty3 direct from Bosch so you can be sure of its quality and dependability!
