If a person buys an electric-only car, rather than a plug-in hybrid, then they most likely will want to take advantage of faster, level II charging ports. Using a home's 220-volt service in the U.S. can cut the charge time roughly in half compared to a regular outlet. This charge point, made by Levinton, can plug directly into a dryer outlet and can be removed if a person moves. Ford has chosen Levinton to supply home charging stations.
