General Charging FAQs
The speed your EV Charges at depends on the power of the Charging Point, your vehicle’s battery size and your vehicle’s state of Charge. Generally public AC Charging infrastructure distributes power at 7kWh’s, however this may be limited by your vehicle or, in some rare circumstances, by the post itself.
Most Rapid Chargers you will come across will distribute 50kWh of power during a Charge cycle, which should be enough to have you powered up to around 80% capacity within 30 minutes.
In 2020 100 kWh and 150 kWh Chargers began to be installed across the UK, whilst all vehicles with Rapid Charging compatibility can use these stations, many drivers will be limited to 50 kWh output by their vehicle.
If you have questions about Charge speed your vehicle is receiving, your dealership should be able to give you some guidance.
All of our public AC Chargers are fitted with a 62196-2 socket. Unless you are using a Rapid Charger, you will need to bring your own Type-2 cable in order to be able to Charge.
