Charging multiple EVs at the same time


Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more common, and many households are now adding a second EV and wondering how to accommodate charging two cars. Having a dual charging station at your home is a great option. The dual charging station from Enphase is a single charging station that you mount to your wall indoors or outdoors. It uses a single circuit, so it's inexpensive to install compared with having two charging stations. It has two built-in charging cables, allowing you to charge two vehicles simultaneously from a single circuit.

If two vehicles are plugged in and both are requesting a charge, meaning they need power to fill the battery pack, the station automatically splits the power 50-50 between each car. Once one vehicle is full, you don't have to unplug the vehicle; the charging station understands and will then offer full power to the other vehicle. This could allow for a faster charge if that vehicle can accept higher power, allowing it to finish its charge sooner than when the power was being split.

Dual charging stations are also a great choice for workplace and public charging; one station and one circuit can fulfill charging needs for two parking spaces with no extra infrastructure costs. Enphase offers dual EV Chargers in a variety of power and installation types.
