With the popularity of electric vehicles, how to choose a suitable electric vehicle charger has become a difficult problem for many electric vehicle owners. There are many different brands and models of electric car chargers on the market, and sometimes it is difficult for customers to know which one is best for their car.

Electric car chargers come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have the same purpose: to charge the battery of an electric car. When plugged into a power outlet, they convert alternating current to direct current, which is then delivered to the vehicle's battery.

Here are what to look for before you purchase an EV charger:

CHOOSE THE RIGHT POWER SOURCE--You need to check your household circuit breaker first. This determines how much EV charger current you can install. Generally speaking, a larger charging current within a safe range can save you more charging time. MUSTART portable EV charger covers 15A, 26A, 32A, 40A, and 32A and 40A products can adjust the current size to truly meet the different needs of customers.

COINSIDER POWER CORDS--Make sure that any charger you choose comes with enough power cords to easily reach the charging port of the car. The 15-foot length is common in lower-cost models, but if the car’s port is at the other end of the garage, this may not be enough compared to the available power source. The MUSTART EV charger is equipped with a 25-foot charging cable and a hook, which solves the problem that the charging cable is not long enough, and is very convenient for storage and use.

PONDER PORTABILITY--Though a hard-wired and permanently-mounted charger is more elegant, you can often get by with a portable unit that simply plugs into a 240-volt receptacle and hangs on the wall. Aside from not having to pay an electrician to hook it up, the advantage here is portability. You can easily take the charger with you if you change houses, have a second home, or need to move it to a different location within the garage. You can also pack it in the trunk if you'll be taking a road trip to visit friends or relatives with a 240-volt line available at your destination.
