    Types of EV Charging

    Just like with smartphones, not every method of charging your I-PACE is going to replenish the batteries at the same rate. In fact, charging rates can vary pretty dramatically, so it is best to understand these differences if you’re looking at buying an I-PACE.

    • Level 1 –This isn’t exactly a charger in the sense that the other types are. Level 1 charging is just plugging your electric vehicle into a regular 120-volt electrical outlet, the type you have in your home. This method of charging is extremely slow, giving you about 5 miles worth of charge every hour. This method of charging is really only suitable for those who don’t drive very much.
    • Level 2 –Technically speaking, Level 2 charging is anything that works at 240 volts. These kinds of plugs are used in American homes for things like dryers and electric stoves, and these can be used to charge an electric vehicle without issue. However, most EV owners will simply install a home charging station, a 240V unit that is located conveniently close to where the vehicle will be parked, and gives you functions that a dryer plug won’t, like being able to check charging status without having to get into the vehicle. Many public chargers are Level 2, especially older ones. The speed of Level 2 charging varies depending on the vehicle. A lot of EVs will use 7 kW charging, while 2022 and newer I-PACE models have 11 kW charging on Level 2. This means a full charge in 8.6 hours, compared to 12.75 hours at 7 kW. Thanks to the 11 kW setup, the I-PACE is one of the faster-charging EVs on the market for Level 2 charging.

    DC Fast Charging –As the name implies, DC fast charging uses DC current, as opposed to AC which is used by the other types. This is by far the fastest method, and a growing number of public charging networks use this technology, including Tesla Superchargers and many Electrify America chargers. This type of charging can get your I-PACE up to 80 percent charge in just 40 minutes.
