WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN CHOOSING A CHARGING STATION
Speaking of electric vehicles, the converter is located inside the car, so called onboard charger. It is converter which convert power from AC to DC and then feeds it into the battery. This is the most common charging method for electric vehicles today and most chargers use AC power.
As it is mentioned, power from the grid is always AC. Main difference between AC and DC charging is the method where the AC power gets converted – using car’s converter or external one. While AC chargers do not have converter, a DC charger has it inside itself. That means they are more powerful and efficient – they can feed power directly to the battery. DC chargers are faster and more efficient, and definitely bright future for EV experience.
