Fast charging your EV is very simple and now quite affordable with EVgo. You can quickly connect your EV to a charger in seconds, charge to 80% or more in less than hour, while you shop, eat, read, or relax. With EVgo’s convenient charging options, it is now as cheap or cheaper than gas to charge with EVgo. Where you once had to pay a per session fee plus a per minute fee, its shifted to low membership fee structures or low pay as you go fees making the cost of owning an EV even better.
There are different levels to charge your vehicle Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 DC Fast Charging and Tesla Supercharging, which only charges a Tesla vehicle. All electric cars can charge on Level 1 and Level 2 options. However, some vehicles cannot charge at a Level 3 charger. Knowing your vehicle’s capabilities is therefore very important.
Level 1/Home Charging: Level 1 charging is simply plugging into a standard wall outlet. It uses a 120-volt charge. This is the slowest form of charging. It will typically charge your car at a rate of 2-5 miles per hour. This is most convenient for home charging as filling up your battery will take many hours.
Level 2 Charging: The most common and efficient charging option for your residence or workplace. Level 2 charging delivers a charge of either 220 or 240 volts with a rate of up to 25 miles per hour. Level 2 chargers can be found at retail, residential, work, EVgo stations or you can have one installed in your home. The Level 2 can deliver a full charge throughout the course of the workday or full night’s sleep. However, if you don’t have time you can receive a minimal re-charge within an hour.
DC Fast/Level 3 Fast Charging: DC Fast charging is the most convenient way to charge for those electric vehicles with fast charging capability. If you would like to fast charge your EV up to 80% capacity in under 30 minutes, Level 3 Public DC Fast Charging is for you. It takes seconds to plug in, then allows you to shop, eat or relax for 30-60 minutes and return to your EV with nearly a full charge. Public level 3 DC Fast Charging is convenient, easy and fast!

On most of our DC Fast chargers there is a red emergency stop button. We do not recommend pushing this to stop the charge unless there is an emergency.
Please note, if you do use the Emergency Stop button, be sure to follow the instructions on the charger screen to reset. Failing to reset may render the charger useless for the next driver until reset is complete.
If you have just arrived at the station and there is a message on the charger screen that refers to the Emergency Stop button being pressed, follow the steps presented on the charger screen to reset.
Resetting the emergency stop is easy, simply twist clockwise (to the right) until the button pops out.
At EVgo, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to charge. We are sharing some of our best practices to get moving.

The most common connector is the Level 2 connector also known as the J1772. This connector works with all cars.
DC Fast connectors are CHAdeMO, SAE Combo or CCS and the Tesla connector. Not all DC Fast charging stations contain each connector. Before visiting a site, you may want to check to make sure your connector is at that station.
The CHAdeMO connector works with most Asian made vehicles.
The SAE Combo (CCS) connector works with most European and American made vehicles.
