How to Get Started

MakMan Charging an EVing the switch to an electric vehicle is easier than ever.

Discover which type of EV will best fit your needs

Research your options and find the car that has the range you will need for your commute. Then, find out what kind of charger that car needs.

Determine your charging level needs

There are two levels of home charging available today. It is important to note that charging time is dependent on many factors including charging level, battery capacity, range driven, and more.

Level 1 (120v) utilizes the common outlet found in your home. Level 1 is a slow, steady charge. In general, 40 miles of range per day is the threshold for practical overnight charging. Every EV comes equipped with a manufacturer provided 120v charging cord. Simply drive your car home and plug into your garage.

Level 2 (240v) utilizes another commonly found outlet in your home, the same used for an electric dryer, and allows you to charge your vehicle in a shorter amount of time.

Check your electrical panel

Ensure you have room on your existing home electric service to put in a 240v Level 2 charging station. Now is a good time to find a qualified electrician that can help you install your charging station.
