Understanding Electric Vehicle Chargers

When it comes to charging your electric vehicle, understanding the different types of chargers is critical. There are primarily two levels of chargers commonly used – Level 1 and Level 2.

Level 1 Chargers

Level 1 chargers are the most basic type of chargers. They utilize a standard 120-volt AC plug, the same kind found in most household outlets. While Level 1 chargers do not require any specialized installation, they offer a slower charging speed.

On average, a Level 1 charger provides about 4 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging, making it an excellent option for plug-in hybrid vehicles or overnight charging of battery electric vehicles.

Level 2 Chargers

Level 2 chargers are a significant upgrade from Level 1 chargers. They use a 240-volt AC plug and require a dedicated circuit for installation, much like an electric stove or a clothes dryer.

A Level 2 charger typically delivers around 10 to 60 miles of range per hour of charging. This makes them ideal for all-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids alike, providing a quicker and more efficient charging solution. It’s the go-to choice for homeowners and businesses seeking to reduce downtime and increase the usability of their electric vehicles.

The Birth of the Electric Car

It’s hard to pinpoint the invention of the electric car to one inventor or country. Instead, like most inventions, it was a series of breakthroughs — from the battery to the electric motor — in the 1800s that led to the first electric vehicle on the road.

In the U.S., the first successful electric car debuted around 1890 thanks to William Morrison, a chemist who lived in Des Moines, Iowa. His six-passenger vehicle, capable of a top speed of 14 miles per hour, and helped spark interest in electric vehicles.

The Baker Motor Vehicle Company, established in 1899 in Cleveland, Ohio was renowned for its high-quality electric vehicles, Baker carved a niche in the early automotive industry with its innovative designs and reliable performance.

The Baker Electric Car

The Baker Electric was also notable for its use of Edison storage batteries, a cutting-edge technology at the time. Despite facing competition from the burgeoning gasoline-powered vehicle market, the Baker Motor Vehicle Company remained a significant player in the electric car industry until the early 1910s, symbolizing the early potential and popularity of electric vehicles. Baker’s legacy in the automotive world is a testament to the enduring allure and practicality of electric transportation.

Over the next few years, electric vehicles from different automakers began popping up across the U.S. New York City even had a fleet of more than 60 electric taxis. By 1900, electric cars were at their heyday, accounting for around a third of all vehicles on the road.

The History of Electric Cars in New Jersey

In 1898, the city of Elizabeth, New Jersey, became the birthplace of a noteworthy chapter in automotive history with the founding of the Riker Electric Vehicle Company. The brainchild of Andrew L. Riker, a visionary in electric vehicle technology, the Riker electric cars emerged as a hallmark of innovation during the brass era of automobiles.

These vehicles were distinguished by their pioneering design and engineering, which reflected Riker’s profound expertise and foresight in electric propulsion. Despite being produced in limited numbers, Riker electric cars left a mark in the early automotive landscape. Their significance was further underscored in 1901 when the Electric Vehicle Company, recognizing the Riker’s potential and influence in the burgeoning electric car market, acquired the company.

The Early Rise the Electric Car

As electric vehicles came onto the market, so did a new type of vehicle — the gasoline-powered car — thanks to improvements to the internal combustion engine in the 1800s. While gasoline cars had promise, they weren’t without their faults. They required a lot of manual effort to drive — changing gears was no easy task, and they needed to be started with a hand crank, making them difficult for some to operate. They were also noisy, and their exhaust was unpleasant.

Electric cars didn’t have any of the issues associated with steam or gasoline. They were quiet, easy to drive, and didn’t emit a smelly pollutant like the other cars of the time. Just like today, electric cars quickly became popular with urban residents. They were perfect for short trips around the city, and poor road conditions outside cities meant few cars of any type could venture farther. As more people gained access to electricity in the 1910s, it became easier to charge electric cars, adding to their popularity with all walks of life.
