The maximum charging power depends on many factors. These include: power capacity of the electrical lines in that location, the car’s own technical capabilities, battery charge (the higher it is, the lower the charging power), the ambient temperature (in case of negative temperatures the charging power is lower) and number of vehicles being charged simultaneously at that location.
Next questions from this topic
What charging standards can be found at GreenWay stations?
All our fast chargers are equipped with two DC charging connectors: CHAdeMO, CCS (Combo) and one for alternating current (AC) Type 2. GreenWay’s AC chargers and most of our partner stations usually allow you to recharge with alternating current (AC) through Type 2. To use these, you usually need to have your own cable. Our partner stations are marked in Driver Zone with the icon „P“, where you can see details about each station. Please consult the driver zone for the most complete and accurate information about each individual charging station.
What is the charging power at GreenWay stations?
On most of our stations, the maximum charging power is CHAdeMO and CCS (Combo) up to 50 kW DC charging and up to 42 kW AC charging. GreenWay partner stations usually allow AC charging up to 22 kW.
How long does it take to charge the car on GreenWay chargers?
Typically, recharging up to 80% of the battery capacity of a car such as the Nissan Leaf DC with a power of up to 50 kW takes up to 30 minutes. However, in reality the charging time depends on many factors and it is difficult to clearly determine the time needed to complete it. These factors include, first of all, the selected type of charging (DC or alternating AC), battery capacity, state of charge, ambient temperature and whether another car is charging at the same time.
Can I charge my car during rain / snow and during a storm?
Yes, charging is possible even in wet, unfavorable weather conditions. Our chargers are equipped with safety features to protect you in foul weather.
What should I do if my plug does not match any cable in a GreenWay chargers? Is it possible to buy an adapter?
Yes, you can buy an adapter, but we do not sell them. We strongly encourage you to purchase an official adapter from your OEM or dealer. If you have any questions about compatability call us directly at +421 233 056 236
Can I control the state of charge of my car?
Why does the charging power drop while charging my car?
The charging power decreases as the battery charge increases (ie, as your battery gets fuller, the charging speed slows down, so filling the last 20% takes a lot longer than the first 20%) . When charging more than 80% of the battery capacity, the pace and charging power slows down. The battery management system slows down the charge towards the end to not overload or overheat the battery.
Will the charger disconnect itself when the car is charged?
No, the charger will not disconnect by itself. You have to finish the charging session, unlock the vehicle, and manually remove the connector from your vehicle. Please be aware that some charger and some programs continue to bill you until you remove the connector from your vehicle.
Does the ambient temperature affect the charging speed and power?
Yes, lower temperatures reduce the charging speed & power.
