In the case of electric vehicles, the converter is built into the vehicle. It’s called an “onboard charger,” but it’s a converter. It converts alternating to direct current and supplies it to the vehicle’s battery. Today, this is the most common charging method for electric vehicles, and most chargers use alternating current (AC).
What is AC Charging?
AC (Alternating Current) charging, often called Level 1 or Level 2, is the most common type of EV charging. It utilizes your home’s existing electrical supply to charge your EV.
Level 1 AC charging employs a standard 120-volt outlet, delivering between 2 to 5 miles of range per hour—perfect for overnight charging. Level 2 AC charging, on the other hand, uses a 240-volt outlet (like your clothes dryer) and provides 10 to 60 miles of range per hour, depending on the EV and the charger.

AC vs. DC Charging: Which is Best for Electric Vehicles?
Electric vehicles can use two types of batteries. The two types are Alternating (AC) and direct (DC) power. The grid power is always alternating current (AC). However, batteries like your electric vehicle can only store direct current (DC). As a result, most electronic devices have a converter built into the plug.
When you charge a device like your smartphone, the plug converts AC power to DC power, which you may not realize. Electric vehicle charging via alternating current.
In the case of electric vehicles, the converter is built into the car. It’s called an “onboard charger,” but it’s a converter. It converts alternating to direct current and feeds it into the car’s battery. Today, this is the most common charging method for electric vehicles, and most chargers use alternating current (AC).
Electric vehicle DC Charging
As we’ve seen, grid power is always alternating current. The location where the AC power is converted (inside or outside the car) distinguishes AC charging from DC charging. In contrast to AC chargers, DC chargers house the converter within the charger itself. That is, it can supply power directly to the car’s battery and does not require.
DC Charging at Home: Is It Right for You?
While AC charging is the common choice for home installations, it can be more complex and costlier than AC options. It’s also worth noting that the charger and your vehicle must be compatible.
NorthCharge can provide expert guidance on home DC charging options to help you make an informed decision.
