Car Plug Types: What Do I Need For my Electric Car?

If you own an electric vehicle, you’ll need to understand your fair share of technical details. Owning an electric vehicle in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia is a little bit like living on the frontier. While people understand what electric cars are, they are still a little bit out there. One source of misinformation that gets routinely bandied about by customers here at EGen Electrical has to do with your car plug. Your car plug will be the way that your battery interfaces with your charging unit. While your EVSE is installed outside of your car, you’ll still need the appropriate car plug in order to charge your battery. Based on the type of vehicle that you drive, your car plug could be slated anywhere from Level 1 to Level 3. Level 1 car plugs use 230V AC house current, for example. Level 3 car plugs refer to 230V AC connection. Consult with your charging manual or one of our talented technicians in order to find out what supplies you need.
