How do Charge Points Work?
- Slow charge can be achieved over about 7 or 8 hours and works by attaching your car battery to a general electricity supply.
- Slow chargers typically operate at 3 kW (13-16 Amps) and you can use a normal plug socket but it is advised to have a dedicated unit installed at home or work.
- Fast chargers deliver between 7 and 22 kW and provide a much quicker load time of three to four hours.
- Rapid chargers can come in either AC or DC. AC chargers up to about 43 kW can provide an 80% charge in about 30 minutes.
- A DC charger provides up to 50 kW and delivers a similar result.
- Whether your EV can take either the higher AC or DC charging will depend on your model of car and the kind of attachment you have.
- Connectors also vary depending on the amount of charge you can have and whether it is AC or DC.
- You may need to buy different cables including a portable charging cable that allows you to safely perform a charge at home.
