Tesla

The Wall Connector is the best charging option for Tesla vehicle owners, as it charges the vehicle an average of 35-40 miles of charge per hour. This is a great option for Tesla owners who would rather keep the charging cord inside their vehicle.

Benefits

  • Recoups your daily driving range in just a few hours
  • Fully recharges your battery overnight on the occasions that you arrive home on a low charge (after a long trip, etc)
  • Doesn’t require major upgrades to your home electrical service

Siemens

Today, price, range, and charging time are the most important buying criteria for electric vehicles. For this reason, automobile manufacturers are launching long-distance battery-powered vehicles worldwide, which can recharge a range of 500 km in 10 to 15 minutes (Charging like refueling). In close cooperation with premium OEMs and charging infrastructure operators, Siemens puts the required high-performance charging infrastructure into daily practice.

Benefits

  • Universally deployable
  • access control
  • Safe even when damaged
  • One station for eCharging & ePayment
  • Central control and monitoring
  • A charging station
    doubling as information hub
  • Vandalism protection

Each EV is different. Most cars advertised as “long range” are somewhere close to a 200-mile range. Some EVs have extender kits available that increase to a 300-mile range. The exact range will vary depending on what type of driving you do, braking, acceleration, and additional systems associated with your vehicle like running the air conditioning.

Charge time will depend on your vehicle and the charge station you’re using. Let’s consider a CT4000, which is a 3 to 5-hour unit. Some units can take longer, while others offer a quicker charge time. ChargePoint stations can deliver as quick as a 15-minute charge! In order:

  1. Level 1 = Home; 8 to 15 hours
  2. Level 2 = Commercial (ChargePoint CT4000 is Level 2); 3 to 8 hours
  3. Level 3 = DC Fast, quickest; less than 1 hour
    Level 3 is also known as Fast Commercial, DCFC, and Fast Charger
    Level 3 stations may require additional installation considerations and evaluation

Yes, the most common connector for a charger is the SAE J1772. It is the connector used to charge the most popular EVs, such as the Kia Soul EV, Nissan LEAF, Ford Focus EV, and many more. It is also the charger used by most Level 2 public charging stations. A ChargePoint CT4000 charging station uses an SAE J1772 connector.

What if I have a Tesla?

Yes, a ChargePoint charging station is still compatible but you’ll need an adapter. Tesla vehicles use their own Tesla connector as standard.

There are a handful of other vehicles that use other adapters, like CCS.
