Designed for the busy and time conscious electric car driver, the BougeRV Level 2 introduces home and portable charging power capabilities that are 3 times that of its predecessor, the Level 1. This little charger weighs in at just 8.45 pounds and measures 15.9 x 12.5 x 4.9 in inches, making it easy to transport in its handy portable bag for on the go charging needs.
Boasting a 25 foot cord, this charger makes it easy to plug inside your house and move all the way to your driveway or garage if need be. The Level 2’s default plugin design is the NEMA 8-20p. The corresponding outlet to the NEMA 6-20p is typically found in your laundry room, for washers and dryers.

An outlet/plugin crash course
In most homes, the standard outlets throughout are compatible with the regular 3 prong plugin. These outlets are known as NEMA 5-15. The BougeRV solves this potential issue by providing a handy adaptor that enables the larger NEMA 6-20p compatible plugin to be inserted into the standard 3 prong outlet, using 120v of energy.
To take advantage of the faster 240v charging capabilities, using a NEMA 6-20p outlet without the adaptor is recommended. However, providing an adapter like this is just one way that the charger adapts to your life, home and needs.
Perfect for home use or on the go
As we have covered, the NEMA 6-20p compatible Level 2 plugin offers charging power that is 3 times the Level 1 plugin. This affords lightning fast charging times with powerful 240 voltage. The Level 1 adapter supplies 120 voltage, but more versatility, which is excellent for regular home use.
Included with the charging unit is a handy portable case, this is perfect if you find yourself on the go frequently. Be it work, school, errands…this charging unit has you covered. Have a last minute meeting this afternoon but absentmindedly forgot to plug your car in last night?
Not to worry, simply use the Level 2 plugin to get some quick juice. Typical charging time is up to 3.5 hours.
We’ve covered a lot of ground on the wall plugin and outlet situation, but it’s very important to note that the connector itself is considered to be universal. This means that it will charge virtually any electric vehicle with the standard JV1772 connector. These connectors typically are found in North American electric vehicles, and some European. The maximum kilowatt output is around an impressive 3840 watts.
Putting safety first
This charger is designed specifically to protect against overcurrent and undercurrent issues. As well as providing lightning protection, overload protection and leakage protection. The universal JV1772 connector is designed to firmly and tightly plugin to your car to prevent the connector from falling out, which could be hazardous.
As well, the design of the LED charging indicator lights is simple and color coded. This makes it easy to safely see your EV’s charging status in the dark or during a snowstorm. It also has a LED indicator for any faults found in the charging system, so you’ll always know if your vehicle has been properly charged before leaving for your destination.
It is enabled to withstand temperatures as low as -22 Fahrenheit and as high as 122 Fahrenheit. As well as temperature extremes, this hardy charger is able to withstand snowstorms, high snow levels and rainstorms.
