Best Home EV Chargers for the Hyundai Ioniq 5

The Ioniq 5 is a stunning retro-futuristic electric crossover from Hyundai. Introduced in 2021 as a 2022 model, the Ioniq 5 quickly became an instant sales hit for the brand due to interesting styling, advanced 800-volt battery architecture, and fast DC charging. The Ioniq 5 is closely related to the Kia EV6, sharing the same E-GMP platform.

In North America, the Ioniq 5 has a base RWD model with 58 kWh capacity, which is good for 220 miles of EPA-rated range. Moving up the trim to AWD and the 77.4 kWh battery will get you 256 miles of range. However, if you opt for the larger battery pack and skip the all-wheel drive, up to 303 miles is achievable.

The Ioniq 5 uses the common J1772 / CCS charging connector. The 800-volt electrical system allows for ultra-fast Level 3 top-ups at public chargers. At home, you can expect to charge at up to 11 kW with a powerful enough Level 2 charging station that will fully charge the Hyundai Ioniq 5 overnight.

LENZ Level 2 EV Charger (40 Amp)

LENZ offers an uncomplicated Level 2 home charging station that is easy to install and set up. The enclosure and mounting brackets are fully made of metal, and an external cord holster is included. The unit plugs directly into a NEMA 14-50 outlet and can supply the Ioniq 5 with 9.6 kW of power using a standard J1772 connector. The charging cord appears to be made from a soft pliable rubber that should perform well in cold weather too.

We like the charger from LENZ because it’s simple, inexpensive, and performs well in all conditions.

J+ Booster 2 (40 Amp)

If you’re looking for a no-compromise portable EV charger, consider the Booster 2. J+ is a Swiss company manufacturing portable EV chargers in Germany using high-grade aluminum. This portable unit supports both Level 2 (240v) and Level 1 (120v) charging and comes in a lightweight enclosure that is durable enough to support the weight of a car.

At 40 amps, it is able to fully recharge an Ioniq 5 in just a couple of hours. We liked the portable carrying case and performance of this unit, but wished that the input cables were a bit longer and more flexible.

Tesla Universal Wall Connector (48 Amp)

Tesla Universal Wall Connector for Ioniq 5

The Universal Wall Connector is a great pick for Ioniq 5 owners because it offers a high-quality, safety-focused product that delivers up to 48 amps (11 kW). Tesla took an already great Wall Connector product they offered to their own customers and made a J1772 compatible version.

The cord is thinner than most other EV chargers, making it easier to handle, but it is still rated at 48 amps. While the enclosure is made of plastic, it is weatherproof and safe to install outdoors. The cord can be wrapped around the UWC when not in use, and the integrated holster hides the NACS connector and the J1772 adapter.

Most new EVs are expected to transition to NACS connector post-2025 in North America, the Universal Wall Connector is a good future-proof choice that will work well with the current Ioniq 5 and your next EV.


  • Amperage: Up to 48 amps
  • EV Connector: NACS + J1772
  • Home Connection: Hardwire
  • Cord Length: 24 feet
  • Cord Thickness: 15 mm
  • Weatherproofing:
    NEMA 3R
  • Networking: Wi-Fi
  • App Control: Yes
  • Warranty: 4 years


  • Quality cord, easy to manage
  • J1772 and NACS in connectors in one product
  • Smart cord management


  • Hardwire install only
  • Plastic enclosure means only a NEMA 3R rating

ChargePoint Home Flex (50 Amp)

ChargePoint Home Flex

ChargePoint is a reputable brand in public charging as well as home charging. The Home Flex is a current favorite with a combination of attractive design, 50-amp performance, and responsive customer support.

At the higher end of home chargers, the Home Flex is able to deliver up to 50 amps to your EV, which translates to approx. 36 miles of range added per hour. The companion ChargePoint app allows you to schedule charging sessions when electricity is cheapest, as well as send you reminders if you forget to plug in your EV.

Compatible with most EVs on the market, the ChargePoint Home Flex is our top choice for most EVs with larger-capacity batteries, like the Ioniq 5. Full Home Flex review.

Emporia Smart Level 2 EV Charger (48 Amp)

Emporia Level 2 Charger for Ioniq 5

The Emporia home EV charger is easy to recommend if you already have other Emporia energy products in your home. If you are considering buying smart home devices, the Emporia ecosystem of products works very well together. But the EV charger is a competitive product in its own right. While cheaper than many competitors on the market, Emporia does not cut corners where it matters most in day-to-day usage.

We really liked the high power output (48 amps hardwired, 40 amps over NEMA 14-50), and the highly durable single-piece metal charge cord holder. Most competing brands include a cheap plastic cord holder in the box. Installation and app configuration were relatively easy as well.


  • Amperage: Up to 48 amps
  • EV Connector: J1772
  • Home Connection: NEMA 14-50 or hardwire
  • Cord Length: 24 feet
  • Weatherproofing:
    NEMA 4
  • Networking: Yes
  • App Control: Yes
  • Warranty: 3 years


  • Lower cost than competitors
  • Emporia app connectivity and scheduling
  • High-quality metal charge plug holder


  • The charge cord is shorter than the competition
  • The charger enclosure box is made from plastic

Most charging stations and charging cords with a J1772 plug will work with the Ioniq 5 just fine. However, we selected products based on our hands-on experience that we think will provide the most utility and value to Ioniq 5 owners. Our main criteria are the quality and length of the charging cord (which undergoes wear and tear), ease of use, and reliability. The Ioniq 5 is able to accept up to 11 kW (48 amps), however, note that a home charging station will need to be hardwired to a 60+ amp circuit breaker to pull the full 48 amps. NEMA 14-50 plug-in charging stations are restricted to 40 amps.

Frequently Asked Questions about charging the Ioniq 5

What kind of charging adapter does the Ioniq 5 use for charging at home?

Standard J1772 connector, like most other new EVs (other than Tesla).

How much does it cost to charge an Ioniq 5 at home?

With an off-peak electricity rate of 13 cents per kWh and assuming 95% charging efficiency, it would cost approximately $10.59 to charge from dead to 100% overnight. Much cheaper than a full tank of gas! Check electricity rates in your area for more accurate costs.

How long does the Ioniq 5 take to charge at home?

It will take between 7 and 9 hours to fully recharge the Ioniq 5 at home, on Level-2 240-volt charging. This will depend on if your charger (and home wiring) can support full 50 amps of current, or if you have to go down to 40 amps or lower.

How fast does Ioniq 5 charge at home?

The fastest home charging is done over Level 2 AC power at 220 volts in North America. The Ioniq 5 can accept up to 11 kW at home with a powerful enough wall charger.

Does the Ioniq 5 support scheduled charging?

Yes. Like most modern EVs, the Ioniq 5 has configurable charging schedules on the main infotainment screen. Scheduling can be found in the  EV -> “Next Departure” menu. This is very useful if you’re using a home charger without scheduling functions.

What is the rated range for the Ioniq 5?

In the US, the EPA estimates range to be 220 miles for the smaller battery pack and rear-wheel-drive. The larger battery pack and rear-wheel-drive version is rated up to 303 miles.

Does wheel size affect the range on the Ioniq 5?

Yes, the Limited AWD trim comes with larger 20-inch wheels with wider 255/45R20 tires. Although sportier in appearance, it does reduce the usable range of the car. Lower trims come standard with 19-inch wheels and 235/55R19 tires.

What is the recommended tire pressure?

Hyundai USA recommends 36 psi for cold tire pressures for the Ioniq 5, for both 19-inch and 20-inch sets of wheels. Lower values will reduce the range of the vehicle. Over-inflated tires may wear out faster, however.

Can you charge the Ioniq 5 at a Tesla Supercharger?

As of this writing in mid-2024, only select Supercharger locations are open to non-Tesla EVs. Those locations have built-on CCS cords with magic dock. Hyundai EVs are expected to gain access to all Supercharger locations later in 2024 or in early 2025, but your own adapter will be required to connect CCS-equipped Ioniq 5s to NACS cords on Superchargers.

Do you get free charging with the Hyundai Ioniq 5?

Hyundai of America and Electrify America have a partnership agreement for new car sales. You may be eligible for two years of complimentary 30-minute charging sessions from Electrify America charging stations, confirm with your Hyundai dealer. It is still recommended for owners to have level 2 home chargers for convenience and to maintain good battery health. EA’s fast public charging network is fantastic for road trips and going beyond the Ioniq 5’s range.

Should I charge the Ioniq 5 to 100%?

You may charge the car to 100% when you need the full change for road trips. Setting a change limit of 80% is recommended for day-to-day usage to avoid early battery degradation. Try to limit the amount of time the battery spends above 80% and below 20% for optimal longevity.

Where is the charging port located on the Hyundai Ioniq 5?

The charging port is located on the right-hand corner, near the back of the car.
