Folks who regularly drive great distances or haul heavy loads are likely still better served by internal combustion.

Still, battery-powered cars and trucks are the future, and Electrify America is aiming to make EV ownership as streamlined as possible.

The firm is offering a new, 240-volt Level 2 charger for home use.

The somewhat blandly named Electrify America Electric Vehicle Home Charger, announced Tuesday, provides up to 7.6 kilowatts of juice and should be compatible with all EVs currently offered in North America.

Vehicles should charge about six times faster with this unit compared to a Level 1 charger because they only operate off standard, 120-volt household outlets.

$499, which is comparable to rival at-home chargers.
