Guide Things to know about charging electric cars

Types of charging and charging time of electric cars

Whether at a public charging station, a private wallbox or a power outlet at home, electric cars can be charged from virtually any power source. The charging time varies considerably depending on the connection. In addition, the charging time depends on the technical charging capacity of the connected vehicle type. And last but not least, the battery capacity influences the duration of the charging process. Larger batteries, for example, offer greater ranges – but it also takes longer to fully charge such energy storage systems.

Common types of connectors on charging cables

Type 2 plug

Our charging cables have a plug that was set as a standard by the European Commission in 2013. Therefore, most public charging stations are also equipped with a Type 2 connector. At wallboxes and most public charging stations, e-cars can thus be charged with up to 22 kW alternating current.

Other connector types

  • Type 1 connector: A plug with charging capacities of up to 7.4 kW that is used primarily in Asian car models. In Europe, this plug type is only supported by a few charging stations.
  • CCS and CHAdeMO plug: The so-called Combined Charging System plug (CCS) supports both AC and DC charging with up to 170 kW. The CHAdeMO connector, which originates from Japan, was also developed for fast charging systems. It works exclusively with direct current and allows charging processes with up to 100 kW.
  • Tesla plug: The e-car manufacturer Tesla uses a modified Type 2 plug for its Supercharger plugs. This allows the Model S to be charged to 80 percent within 30 minutes – with a charging power of up to 120 kW (direct current).

Charging cable modes

The different charging modes are designated modes 1 to 4. There is usually also a special cable for each charging mode. Charging modes 1 to 3 require alternating current (AC), mode 4 uses direct current (DC).

Mode 3

This charging mode is considered the "standard" and our charging cables also use this reliable charging mode with alternating current up to 32 amps. In addition to classic charging, Mode 3 also enables power from the battery to be fed back into the grid.

Mode 1,2 and 4

  • Mode 1: This mode is intended for single-phase or three-phase alternating current with up to 16 amps. This allows e-cars to be charged via the household socket or a CEE socket. In single-phase operation, charging powers of up to 3.7 kW are possible, resulting in very long charging times. This fact, as well as various safety aspects, has led to European car manufacturers no longer supporting Mode 1 charging.
  • Mode 2: This charging mode uses the same power sources as Mode 1, but also includes an ICCB (in-cable control box) in the charging cable. In this way, electric cars can be safely charged via household or CEE sockets with currents of up to 32 amperes and a charging power of up to 22 kW.
  • Mode 4: This term stands for "fast charging" with direct current (DC). In contrast to charging with alternating current, the charger is not located in the vehicle but in the charging station. On the German market, there are two types of plug, the CCS and the CHAdeMO plug (see above), which support fast charging but are not compatible with each other.

The right choice of cable cross-section and cable length

Cable cross-section

As a general rule, the greater the charging power to be handled by the cable, the larger the cross-section must be. Conversely, this means: If the charging power is limited to 11 kW, for example, a smaller and thus lighter, more flexible cross-section should be used. That's why you can choose between cross-sections for up to 22 kW with our charging cables.

Cable length

For the suitable choice of cable length, it is important to know in which charging situation the cable is to be used. When used at private wallboxes, shorter cables are often sufficient. On the road, it may not be possible to park directly at the charging station. In this case, a longer charging cable is advantageous. But keep in mind: The longer the cable, the heavier and more unwieldy it is. You can get charging cables from us in the lengths you want.
