Over 100,000 EV stations in Europe

Like many electric vehicle (EV) enthusiasts, I used to grapple with the anxiety of limited range. Nevertheless, thanks to the convenience of easyCharging, I now have the peace of mind knowing that a charging station is readily available whenever I need to power up and continue my journey.

As technology continues to advance, a growing array of DC chargers featuring impressive power ratings of up to 400kW are entering the market. These high-powered chargers have the capability to replenish your electric vehicle's battery in as little as 20 minutes, making the charging process quicker and more efficient than ever before.

Speculating about charging costs is unnecessary because each station provides detailed pricing information. Moreover, I value the convenience of being able to quickly verify the station's status, whether it's currently in use, available, or offline.

Most of the charging points are strategically located in city centers, ensuring convenient access while you run errands or enjoy a meal out.

Compatible with your socket type

easyCharging stations are compatible with all electric makes and models and all connector types. It takes 30 minutes to charge an EV from 20% to 80% of its battery capacity using a DC fast charger.

CCS fast DC charging

CCS supports both AC and DC charging. DC fast charging using CCS can provide high-power charging, typically from 50 kW to over 350 kW, depending on the charger's capability and the EV's compatibility. CCS is widely adopted making it one of the most common standards for fast charging.

Type 1 regular AC charging

Type 1 connectors have a single-phase AC connector with up to 7.4 kW charging power. Type 1 is primarily used for slower AC charging, providing about 2 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging.

Icon

CHAdeMO fast DC charging

CHAdeMO connectors have a unique design with a separate DC plug. They are often characterised by their round shape. CHAdeMO supports DC fast charging, with power levels typically ranging from 50 kW to 150 kW or more.

Icon

Type 2 regular AC charging

Type 2 connectors, also known as Mennekes connectors, are commonly used in Europe and have a three-phase AC connector, providing up to 43 kW of charging power. Type 2 is primarily used for AC charging but can provide faster charging compared to Type 1, offering about 16 to 32 kilometers of range per hour of charging. Type 2 connectors are prevalent in Europe and are often used for slower to moderate-speed AC charging.
