Charging speed depends on the car’s battery capacity, the battery level at the time of connection, the charging capacity of each car model, the cable used for charging (single-phase or three-phase depending on the model). At AC power stations, a full charge (from 0% to 100%) of an electric car can take an average of 2-4 hours, while at a DC station a charge of 0% to 85% – 90% of the batteries can take an average of 25 minutes.
Parking is free of charge or billed for, depending on the policy of the management of each car park.
Most EasyGo Charge Points are Free to use. However, some Charge Point owners have a usage fee. This fee can be seen on the EasyGo map/app at the Charger location.
If a Charge Point is Pay to Use, the fee for AC Chargers is €0.24 connection and a rate between €0.10 and €0.35 per kWh of use.
The fee for DC Chargers is €0.24 connection and a rate of €0.35 per kWh of energy delivered.
€0.35/minute overstay parking fee applies when you have been charging for more than 1 hour.
All AC Charge Points have Type 2 sockets, the European standard. Users must have their own Type 2 male charging cable on the side connected to the charging station and depending on their car with the corresponding female plug.
Type 2 examples are – for BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Porsche, SMART, Renault ZOE etc. Type 1 – J1772 – for NISSAN, Peugeot, Citroen Mitsubishi, etc.
