Types of Charge Points

There are two main types of Charge Point

AC

AC units provide Alternating Current to the vehicle and these points are usually at a rate of between 7kW to 22kW. As these provide power in AC, each car has an onboard charger converting the power to DC which is saved in the battery. These chargers will have differ rates and therefore may limit the supply capacity of the AC charger.

 

DC

DC units provide Direct Current to the vehicle. As this does not need to be routed via the onboard charger it is at a higher rating. At present most electric vehicles can accept DC at around 50kW however the Tesla chargers are 120kW.
