Learn how to charge at a public network

Public charging stations

If you want to charge your car while out and about, you can use public charging stations. It is good to know that there are different types of public charging points, from slower chargers to fast chargers. There are many apps that you can use to find the closest charger and more and more EVs have built-in car navigation to help you find the right charger.

  1. Fast-charging points

    Fast charging points have fixed cables with different types of plugs. What that means is you don't need your own charging cable. Connect the cable to your car and you can easily start and stop charging, usually through an app.

How much does it cost to charge in public?

The cost of public charging depends on the operator of charging station. Pricing at charging stations is based on the duration, energy used or is simply calculated per session. The most common charging method is per kWh consumed. Using a fast charger is more expensive than ordinary public charging stations or charging at home. In order to maximize the benefit of using an electric car, it is necessary to schedule your charging so it meets your needs.

Minute-based charging: The operator of the station charges you based on the time your car is connected to the charging station. This means that you pay for as long as you are parked at the charging station, even after the charging is completed. At charging stations using this fast-charging system you may see a sign that says something like: "charges apply as long as your car is connected to the charging station, even if the charging process has already been completed".

Charging per kWh: In this case, the operator charges based on kWh consumption in conjunction with parking time at the charging station.
