Do you need EVSE?

Yes, you need an EVSE if you want to charge at 240v. While it’s basically just a “smart” extension cord, it has electronic circuitry that is necessary for your car to accept a charge from the circuit.

What is EVSE efficiency?

In this study we examined the charging efficiency of Level 1 (120 Volt) and Level 2 (240 Volt) Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). Charging efficiency was defined as the percentage of power drawn from the electric grid that is actually taken up by the vehicle battery.

What is 150kW charger?

The 150kW range is a collection of ultra rapid three-phase, commercial DC charging units.

Should I charge EV battery to 100%?
