Charging times vary greatly, depending on the type of charger as well as the size of your car’s battery, the level of charge remaining, the temperature and the maximum rate of charge the battery can accept.
Generally speaking, however, the following rough timings apply when charging.
- Wall socket (2.4kW) = 24+ hours
- Home wall box (3-11kW) = 7-12 hours
- Public AC charging (7-22kW) = 4-7 hours
- Public DC fast/rapid charging (25-150kW) = 1-2 hours
- Public DC ultra rapid/high-powered charging (150-350kW) = 20 - 60 minutes
