Chevy Bolt Level 1 Charger

The 2021 Chevy Bolt EV has a maximum range of an EPA-estimated 259 miles on a full charge. It also comes with the following performance metrics:

  • 200 horsepower
  • 266 lb-ft of torque

When you need to charge your Bolt, you can turn to a Level 1 charger. This kind of charger can be used within your home, as it only requires a 120-volt outlet-most homes already have these for other uses.

If you have a garage that contains outlets or maybe have outlets on your porch for those outdoor Christmas lights, you should be able to use them to charge your vehicle.

Chevy Bolt Level 2 Charger

A Level 2 charger is the type that can often be found at public charging stations. It can also be installed at home to achieve a quicker charge than a Level 1 charger. This 240-volt unit comes with the following two options:

  • Dual Level Charge Cord
  • Wall Charger

The Dual Level Charge Cord affords you more flexibility, as it can be used as both a Level 1 charger in a 120-volt outlet or as a Level 2 charger with a 240-volt outlet. In about 10 hours' time, the latter outlet can produce a fully charged battery.

The Wall Charger is even more efficient, getting you fully charged in just seven hours. In order to use this Wall Charger, you will need to install a 48-amp charging unit.
