Clipper Creek, one of many brands we consider when helping you decide your EV charging strategy, has published their latest list of EV charge times. CLICK HEREElectric vehicle charging times depend on a couple factors:

  • What EV is being charged? Electric vehicles have various sizes of battery pack sizes; the battery pack size determines the amount of energy stored in the vehicle.
  • The power going into the EV: Different electric vehicles have different power acceptance rates. Electric vehicle charging stations have various max power delivery ratings.

If the EVSE (the hardware that is like a gas pump) offers less power than the vehicle’s maximum acceptance rate, the EVSE is the limiting factor in charge time. If the vehicle’s acceptance rate is lower than the EVSE’s maximum output rate, the vehicle is the limiting factor.
