What is EV fast-charging?
EV fast-charging allows you to charge an electric vehicle at a much faster rate compared to a standard charger. For example, a fast charger can usually charge an EV within 1-4 hours, this means wait times whilst charging are significantly reduced for EV drivers.
Both AC and DC fast chargers are available.
Alternating current (AC)
Enables energy to flow back and forth in an electrical system
The AC motor can then recharge the EV battery
AC motor also powers the vehicle
Direct current (DC)
Runs directly into the vehicle in one direction
DC motor powers the EV forward
