With Tesla leading the way, Electric Vehicles are the hottest trend in the vehicle market in decades.

This is where EVCS PLUS is your ally.

Sure, you can fuel up those batteries with the cute little travel cord they provide from any old outlet, but let's be honest, your clothes will likely go out of style before you have maximum range.
In order for you to use your new EV the way you’d hope, you’ll need a high power charging station, ready to send some substantial juice. This is known as a Level II Charging Station. A Level II Charging Station is capable of providing up to 40miles of range per charging hour, the result may vary by vehicle.
