How FLO EV Charging Works

FLO keeps you charged for wherever your journey takes you.

Did you know?

Over 80% of electric vehicle charging occurs at home*.

Having a Level 2 residential station installed at your home is the optimal and convenient choice to recharge your EV. This is typically where long dwell times exist, combined with the ease of overnight charging when your vehicle remains idle.

If you don’t have the option for at-home charging, don’t worry! The FLO Network has you covered with access to thousands of public charging stations that can provide your EV a full charge or a top-up on those longer journeys.

Understanding the 3 Levels of charging

EV charging comes with choices in re-charge speeds: slower, faster, & fastest. Which is right for you? Hint: They all are.

Level 1

The slowest option. An AC adapter that plugs into a standard 120V wall outlet which can add 3 to 8 kms of range per hour*. A full recharge can take 24 hours or more**. Ideal when a Level 2 charger is not available.


Level 2

The faster option. Uses a 208 or 240V hardwired or plug-in connection that provides a larger energy delivery which can add 20 to 50km of range per hour*. A full recharge can take between 8-12 hours**. For residential use and publicly available.


DC Fast

The fastest option. These chargers deliver Direct Current which bypass the on-board AC converter for the fastest energy delivery to the vehicle battery. Ability to recharge battery life from 0-80% within 40 mins or less**. Publicly available.
