Get Powerful Charging Minus the Extra Costs with Lectron’s Portable Level 2 Chargers

In a 2021 study by JD Power, electric vehicle (EV) owners with permanent or hardwired Level 2 chargers at home are shown to have the highest satisfaction compared to those who use portable Level 1 and Level 2 chargers, which may be attributed to their charging output.

However, mounted chargers are not always the best solution. For first-time EV owners, investing in a high-powered charger and spending thousands of dollars on installation may be intimidating. For those who are renting out or are living in buildings that are not retrofitted to accommodate EV charging, it’s completely out of the options.

If you’re looking for portable chargers without sacrificing charging power, Lectron’s new Level 2 chargers are a great option.

Native Compatibility

One of the reasons for decreased charging efficiency is the charger’s compatibility with the EV. While manufacturers still ship their cars with Level 1 chargers, Tesla stopped doing so in April 2022, and major automakers may soon follow suit. If you’re opting for third-party chargers, it’s important to ensure 100% compatibility with your EV. The Lectron Portable Level 2 J1772 EV Charger is compatible with all EV and plug-in hybrid models that use the J1772 connector, while the Lectron Portable Level 2 Tesla EV Charger promises native compatibility with all Tesla models and any EV using the North American Charging Standard (NACS). This ensures your EV is charged properly, according to how it’s programmed.

No Hardwiring Needed

Hardwiring a charger into your home’s system could cost you thousands of dollars in labor fees and permitting. You may also have to upgrade your electrical panel to accommodate a 50 Amp charger. If you’re not yet ready to jump into a permanent setup but still want decent charging speeds, these Level 2 chargers have got you covered. Both chargers plug into a NEMA 14-50 outlet for up to 9.6 kW of input power, which translates to up to 36 miles of range per hour of charge, depending on your EV model and breaker size.

Powerful Charging Anywhere

One of the advantages of plug-in chargers over permanent chargers is their portability. The Portable Level 2 J1772 EV Charger and Portable Level 2 Tesla EV Charger both come with a carrying case that fits easily in your trunk. Bring it with you on long drives and enjoy powerful Level 2 charging virtually anywhere there’s a NEMA 14-50 outlet.

For most EV drivers, having a dedicated home charging station is the ultimate goal. However, it may not always be the most practical choice. The flexibility of portable chargers more than makes up for what they lack in power compared to their hardwired counterparts. If you want powerful Level 2 charging without the fuss and the extra expenses, consider the Lectron Portable Level 2 J1772 EV Charger and the Lectron Portable Level 2 Tesla EV Charger.
