Finding the Right Station

While it doesn’t require gasoline, your new BMW EV still needs to be “topped off” occasionally. Charging ports vary between electric vehicles, meaning you’ll have to find a station that utilizes the SAE J1772 connection. Fortunately for you, the SAE J1772 connection is the standard most charging stations in the United States employ.

You’ll also have to consider the charging level a station employs. Level 1 charging connections are reserved for the 120V outlets found in most homes, but you’ll be working with the faster Level 2 and Level 3 connections in public.

Level 2 connections restore up to 30 miles of range per hour of charging, while Level 3 (also known as DC Fast Charging) can provide up to 90 miles of range per 10 minutes of charging. Our team can provide further clarification if you’re still confused about the charging levels.
