To calculate your total charge time for a battery, a good rule of thumb is to take the amp hour rating of the battery and divide by the charger rating (amps) and then add about 10% for the extra time to totally top off the battery. Some folks wanting quick recharge should look for a charger with more amps.

30 A 12 V charger can charge a maximum of 360 Watts. This information is intended to be at the battery being charged side, since at the AC mains side you can consider from 20 to 40% more energy being consumed .

If you're fairly average and drive 12,000 miles per year (1000 per month) and get 4 miles per kWh, you'll use an extra 250 kWh per month from the car's battery. Level 1 (120V) charging is about 75–80% efficient, so you'll use around 320 kWh from the wall.

A basic charger usually charges at around 2 amps - and so needs 24 hours to deliver the 48 amps needed to fully charge a flat, 48 amp hour battery. But there is a wide range of chargers with different charge rates on the market - from 2 to 10 amps. The higher the charge output, the faster a flat battery is recharged.
