Charging an electric car varies in duration depending on the type of charger used and the vehicle’s battery capacity. Understanding these variables is essential to plan your EV charging needs effectively.

Home chargers, which are commonly used for overnight charging, typically offer slower charging rates but are convenient for daily use. Depending on the EV model and its battery size, home chargers can take anywhere from a few hours to overnight to fully charge the vehicle. For example, a standard 7 kW home charger might take around 8-10 hours to fully charge an EV with a 60 kWh battery.

The Weev Public Network offers a range of charging speeds to accommodate various needs. Our Rapid chargers provide faster charging rates compared to home chargers. These chargers can top up a significant portion of your EV’s battery in around 30 minutes to an hour, making them suitable for quick top-ups during long journeys.

Furthermore, the Weev Ultra Rapid chargers can provide even faster charging times. These chargers, with power outputs of 150 kW can charge compatible EVs to 80% capacity in as little as 20-30 minutes. Our Ultra Rapid chargers offer EV drivers convenient access to high-speed charging capabilities.

In summary, the time it takes to charge your electric car varies based on the type of charger used. While home chargers provide convenience for overnight charging, Rapid and Ultra Rapid chargers offer faster-charging rates, making them ideal for quick top-ups during long journeys.
