Do I need to buy special equipment to charge an electric car?

    No, the vehicle manufacturer should provide you with the necessary equipment which will allow you to plug your car into any electrical outlet. However, there are steps you can take which will allow you to charge your electric car in a shorter amount of time. Getting a full charge from empty on a domestic 110-Volt socket can taken 18 hours or more, so you may want to consider having an electrician install a dedicated 240-Volt charging station in your garage, which can reduce charging time to a mere 8 hours. Of course, this is not necessary, and you should make the decision based on your own circumstances. For example, if you do not drive the car enough to deplete the battery every day, charging it overnight in a domestic socket may be sufficient.
