Siemens Level 2 is 240 Volts AC which is what you get at home or most commercial charging stations. Planning to visit an EV network? Learn how to use a public charging station and stay polite?
Siemens Level 1 is 120 volts AC which are the J1772 extension cords that come with your car. The owners manual for your vehicle should have a label on it saying how many amps to pull safely from an outlet when plugged into one of these cords. If you want to look up amp recommendations by make and model there’s a great calculator here. Generally, an overnight charge should be no more than 8 hours on Level-1 charging.
Siemens has been in the EV car charger business for years3 and have seen a lot of chargers come and go. What makes our Level 1 and Level 2 EV car chargers different? Five reasons, to be exact. The first is fast charging at 16 amps with 220 volts, which means you can expect about 10 miles per hour charged while plugged into this model. No other charger comes with a level 1 adapter that plugs into 110v outlets (NEMA 5-15) like ours do so you can charge your vehicle anywhere there’s an outlet available without needing any special adapters or converters. All electric cars coming out now use universal plug type SAE J1772 which we guarantee will work on all models currently being.
