Many EV charger network companies are constantly improving their quality. In fact, it is not uncommon for car manufacturers to also have ambitions to build a charger network.
The following are the five largest charging networks in the United States quoted from Makeuseof.
This Electrify America station is the fastest available in the country. They provide up to 350kW of electricity in one hour.
For a vehicle that can charge over 100kW, you see a charge time of around less than half an hour at the Electrify America station.
The Tesla Supercharger has a lower maximum speed than Electrify America, reaching up to 300kW, although it is limited to 250kW.
While the two fast charger (DC) networks Tesla and Electrify are located in public places, EVgo is the home charger provider, which is also the largest in America.
EVgo stations tend to charge around 50kW. This means the charging time is about an hour to reach 80%. That’s a long time when making a few stops on the way, but not bad when you’re charging while shopping or eating at a restaurant.
Chargepoint has the largest charging network in the US, but when compared to Tesla and Electrify, the number of ChargePoint networks is relatively small.
In contrast, ChargePoint stations tend to provide around 6.6 kW of electricity per hour, the kind of Level 2 charging you can achieve via a 240v outlet or at-home charging station. This charger provides a range of about 25 miles per hour.
Blink is a Level 2 charging network in America. You can find them in hotels, businesses, and the like.
Like ChargePoint, there are several DC fast chargers available on the Blink network, but they are very few. The Blink charger provides approximately 50kW of power.
When Blink acquired SemaConnect, a comparable-sized charging network, it substantially increased their footprint across the country.
