How Do Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Work?
All cars have batteries, but in most vehicles, they're just a relatively small 12.6-volt battery that's used to ignite the engine. An electric car battery is different: it's usually a much larger lithium-ion battery that can store as much as 100 kilowatt-hours of electricity. These batteries need to be plugged in for extended periods in order to reach their full capacity. You can plug an electric car into a standard 120-volt wall outlet, but it could take a day or more to reach a full charge. That's where electric vehicle charging stations come in: also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), these stations are specially designed to charge EVs at faster speeds than you can get from a standard wall outlet.
