How do power ratings affect my EV charging time?
The power rating of a charging point is measured in kilowatts (kW) and is the maximum rate at which a charging point can transfer electricity to an EV’s battery.
Actual charging time depends on the EV’s design (e.g. battery size, capacity of on-board charger, compatibility with AC and/or DC chargers, battery management system, etc).
DC charging (also known as fast charging) typically occurs at a higher power rating compared to AC charging. This allows EV batteries to be charged faster. To use DC charging, your EV must be compatible. To check if your EV can support DC charging, please consult your EV manufacturer.
