No, the connector does not disconnect automatically. First, you need to stop charging using the same method you started charging with – via a charging card / key fob or in the mobile / web application – and then it is safe to disconnect the charging plug from the car. Fortunately, the vehicle’s the battery control system, which supervises charging, will stop automatically when the battery reaches full charge. However, if you leave the vehicle connected past the payment free connection time, this will show up on your invoice. And, its good practice and courtesy to free up the connector for other EV drivers.

What is the charging power at GreenWay stations?
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.
What determines the maximum charging power at GreenWay stations?
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.
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.
Does the ambient temperature affect the charging speed and power?
Yes, lower temperatures reduce the charging speed & power.
