Charging electric vehicles is becoming an increasingly popular process, given the increased focus on environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. The right charging station is a key step in charging convenience and efficiency. However, many are interested in what is better: single-phase and three-phase charging. Let’s look at this issue in detail.

How does the charging process of an electric vehicle work?

Charging an electric vehicle involves supplying electricity from a power source (charging station) to the battery. Electricity enters through a connector specifically designed for charging and then converts alternating current from the mains to direct current, which is then transferred to the electric vehicle battery.
