There are three main types of EV charging –rapid,fast, andslow. These represent the power outputs and therefore charging speeds, available to charge an EV. Note that power is measured in kilowatts (kW).
Each charger type has an associated set of connectors which are designed for low or high power use, and for either AC or DC charging. The following sections offer a detailed description of the three main charge point types and the different connectors available.
