Where Can You Charge Your Chevrolet EV?

When it comes down to electric car charging times, you have options to choose from when you need a charge.

Each one of the options below can benefit your Bolt charging time and how much power your EV’s battery will get. Check out some locations where you can recharge your EV’s battery and some specs about their Bolt charging times:

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet): A normal grounded (three-prong) 110V/120V charging outlet (Level 1 Charging) doesn’t offer a fast charging speed but it’s a good option for topping off some of the charges you used commuting to work that day. How long does Level 1 charging take? Usually around 24 hours or more for a full charge. In other words, expect it to take days, not hours, to charge with this method.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging: Level 2 Charging is typically professionally installed. Level 2 charging uses rapid (usually 240V+) chargers most often made for your brand of car will have significantly faster-charging rates than using a regular grounded household outlet. Think hours, not days. DC fast chargers (as opposed to AC ones) are also common. It’s not unheard of to obtain an 80% charge in half an hour or forty minutes with this type of charging method, but that extra 20% will take longer as there’s a diminishing rate of charging speed as well.
  3. Public Charging: You can charge on-the-go in Temecula at parking garages, malls, hotels, and even apartment buildings. You’ll often find charging stations at big-name national stores like Walgreens and Kohls, and more charging stations are being added every day across the country. These charging stations vary in type and speed, but often provide Level 2 charging speeds for greater convenience. Some public chargers even offer emissions-free renewable energy charging with solar panels or wind turbines! 

Home Charging Prot Times

If you’ve installed an electric vehicle charging station in your home, you have some options that really affect how long to charge a Bolt. See some specs below:

  • Level 1 EV charging often takes days to fully charge an electric car. 
  • Level 2 EV charging often takes several hours to fully charge an electric car. You can often get between 60-200 miles of range in just 20-30 minutes with Level 2 DC charging, though. For this reason, most people intermix daytime “top-off” charging with overnight charging.

Public Charging Port Times

When you need to charge your EV while on the roads of Corona, the electric car charging time does change from your home’s station.

While most home chargers offer 3.7 kW or 7 kW charging, public stations offer 22 kW charging, 43-50 kW rapid charging, and 150 kW rapid charging. 

As a result, it’s a lot quicker and you can get a full charge (0-100%) in an hour or so. In other cases, it could take 4 hours, 6 hours, or 11 hours for a full charge.
