Driving an electric vehicle is a new way to connect to a familiar setting: the Finger Lakes. You can charge an EV battery from home or while you are driving around Cayuga Lake. How can you learn more about charging an electric vehicle?

Maguire Audi of Ithaca can help you out. Read below to learn about electric charging stations near Ithaca, Corning, or Binghamton, New York.

Plug Into a Fast-Charger


If you are on the go, you can top off the charge of your electric vehicle while you stop in for a bite or cup of coffee. Instead of searching for a gas station, you can multi-task by finding a spot that lets you rest up while your vehicle gets a charge.

The easiest way to do this is by finding a public DC fast-charging station. You can give your vehicle's battery a boost after just a few minutes. This prepares your EV for the road ahead. In addition to searching for nearby charging stations, it's best to plan an efficient route so you can maximize your battery's charge.

How Can I Charge My Vehicle From Home?


The best way to prepare for the week is by plugging into an AC charger from home. You can replenish your EV battery from home just like you can on the road, although it may take a little longer.

Some things never change. Just like a gas tank, it's best to charge your vehicle periodically. Drivers should make sure to watch their battery levels. Avoiding low battery drainage makes it easier to keep up with your normal routine.

If you are charging from home, you may be able to set a limit on your charger. This allows you to safely recharge your vehicle and maximize its performance capability.

How Long Does It Take To Charge an EV?


Your home charging port may be an AC charger. That's great news because your EV can do all the work while you relax. An EV like an Audi e-tron can reach its full charge in under 11 hours when plugged into an AC charger. That means you'll be able to prepare for the weekly commute and binge your favorite TV shows at the same time.

If you find a public charging station, you can give your vehicle a boost, but you don't have to give it a full charge. Drivers may be able to reach their destination without frequent charges that may drain their battery. A vehicle like an Audi Q4 e-tron can reach an 80% charge from a 5% charge after being plugged in a DC fast charger for less than 40 minutes.
