The Movement behind the Type 2 Charging Plug

Blog › The Movement behind the Type 2 Charging Plug

As mentioned, The Type 2 charging plug allows up to 3-phase charging and with a maximum of 63 amps. This can reduce the charging time on AC supply significantly. Theoretically, at max supply a Type 2 charging plug is can be almost 6x faster than a Type 1 at max supply. However, keep in mind not every electric vehicle supports charging with 44 kW. This is not a problem, because every electric vehicle draws only as much power when charging as it needs to charge the batteries. However, if less supply is available than the electric vehicle requires to charge at optimum speeds, the charging time will be longer.
