Can You Charge a PHEV at Home?
Many drivers want to ask our dealers here at Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep® Dodge Blair about PHEV charging. How long does a plug-in hybrid take to charge? Do I need to charge it every day? Can I charge it at home?
We can answer all of those questions and tell you everything that you need to know about the benefits of at-home charging. Here’s what Omaha Jeep drivers need to know.
PHEV Charging at Home
A plug-in hybrid like the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe can charge at your home without a problem. You just need a plug that provides enough voltage.
Usually, a three-prong plug, one that you could use for an appliance like a clothes dryer, will do. Plug in your hybrid vehicle and it will start recovering battery life.
Why Install a Charging Station?
A home EV charging station costs some money to install, but we think that it’s more than worth it. This gives you a different charging plug to use and increases charging speed.
A regular outlet gives you Level 1 charging, but a charging station like those we recommend gives you access to Level 2 charging capabilities.
This charges your PHEV much faster, which is a necessity if you’re going to be relying on this green car to be your primary mode of transportation. With level 2 charging, every day you’ll wake up to a fully charged PHEV in your garage or driveway. This also makes it easier to take advantage of your hybrid’s all-electric driving mode, which can help you save gasoline.
