BYD Atto 3 Chargers & Charging guideBYD atto 3 charging

Charging options for the new BYD Atto 3 

From factory the Atto comes with a Type 2 10A charger that will charge at 8 amps. They call this an emergency charger as it will take the standard range model  28 hours to charge from 0 to 100%.
On a full charge you can expect around 320km range. There are a couple of options for charging faster at home. 

  1. The 16A T2 charger with the Blue Cee plug. Great if you have a 16A socket. If you don’t have one get a quote from your local electrician to have one installed.
  2. The other faster option are the wall mount chargers that can be mounted outside. Such as the  32A Wall mounted charger or the EO mini Pro 2 with Wifi

Atto 3 Charge times

Although the charger that comes with the car is referred to a Emergency charger, It might be ok for you. It comes down to how many km you do per day. The standard charger will add around 10km per hour. Where as a wall charger will add 35km per hour. 

Estimate charge timing comparison from 20% to 80%. After 80% charging can slow depending on the temperature of the batteries, also as the battery gets full the car balances the cells so charging will slow as it approaches 100%

Public charging the Atto 3

There is a couple of ways to charge your Atto 3 in public. 

CSS fast charger. This is a DC charger and will charge your car from 20% to 80% in 45min. No need to bring a cable as the charging station has this hard wired. To used these public stations download the Chargenet App or if charging at a Z station download Open loop via App Store or Google Play.

Type 2 Public charger such as the Free Orion chargers or the ones you find a super markets, malls, gyms, hotels and public carparks. Most of these chargers you need to bring your own cable. 

Charging your Atto 3 from a public Type 2 Mennekes charger.

You will need one of our Type 2 to Type 2  charge cables to make use of these chargers. The majority of free public chargers use the Type 2 Socket, so this cable will allow you to use the chargers. Note Some public charges have a Type 2 hard wires so a cable is not needed 100% of the time. If you already have a Type 1 charger at home we can supply an adapter so you can charge your BYD and Japanese import EV.
