Electrify America launches Level 2 home charger

Electrify America has launched its first level 2 home charger. The charger features charging power of up to 7.6 kW. It comes with a standard NEMA 14-50 supply power plug, colored lighting to indicate charge status, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a three-year warranty. Electrify America also aims to add a home charging section to its mobile app.

Nina Huesgen, Senior Manager of L2 Operations & Program Management at Electrify America, said, “We recognize that many of today’s EV drivers do more than 80 percent of their charging at home, and with the introduction of our L2 home chargers, Electrify America is providing consumers with a more convenient and reliable option that should help increase the appeal of EV ownership.”
