How to Charge the Chevy Volt?


Level 1 Standard Outlet Charger

These Level 1 charging stations use a normal 120-volt connection, which utilizes any standard household outlet; there are no extra costs here. The downside is that charging times are extremely slow. Many Chevy Volt owners will likely find that they deplete the battery faster than at the rate the vehicle charges.

Every Chevy Volt comes standard with a portable charger that can plug into any standard 120-volt outlet. The 18.4-kWh battery pack can be fully charged in about 13 hours according to GM. This method,  called “trickle” charging, only adds about three to four miles in an hour.

We highly do not recommend staying with Level 1 Charging as it will provide an unpleasant charging experience for you.

Level 2 Chevy Volt Home Charger Install

Having a Level 2 EVSE at your home is ideal because most EV owners find they do the majority of their charging while they are asleep. Fortunately, the Volt uses the standard J1772 connection found in all U.S.-based home and public EV chargers that supply 240-volt, Level 2 power. This increases the number of miles you can replenish to 11 to 13 miles in an hour. The charging time is now slightly faster thanks to the Volt’s new 3.6-kW onboard charger, which replaces a 3.3-kW charger in previous models.

To have a level 2 charger installed in your home, you will need a professional installation by an electrician. We specialize solely in the installation of electric vehicle charging so we are your go-to guy!
