How long does it take to charge an e-Car's battery?

This depends strongly on three factors:

  • The battery type and size/capacity
  • They type of electricity used
  • The battery's remaining capacity at the beginning of the recharging process
Best results will be achieved using late-model batteries and high currents (single-phase or heavy current). After the first hour, the charging rate decreases. When using single-phase current (230V, 10 Amps, 2.4 kW), most conventional e-Cars can be fully charged in about 8 hours. With 3-phase current (400V, 32 Amps, 12 kW), a full charging cycle takes as little as 3 hours on average.
