Omoda E5 Charging Guide

Omoda E5 charging

The Chery Omoda E5 does not come with a standard plugin 8a charger for your home. To charge you will need to purchase a wall charger or plugin charger separately. You can purchase a home plugin Type 2 charger that will add around 10km per hour of charging here. The plugin Type 2 wall charger will take around 33 hours to charge from 10% to 100%. 

To fully charge the vehicle overnight we recommend investing in a Smart EV wall charger. The E5 has an onboard 9.9kW ac charger and supports up to 80kW DC charging. At the bottom of the page we have recommend chargers for the Omoda E5.

Public charging with the Omoda E5

There two types of public chargers; DC CCS fast charger and AC chargers. 

The CCS charger. This is a DC fast charger, these chargers have the cables attached so there is no need to bring your own.
To use these public stations download the following apps Chargenet Meridian AppShell App and BP app 

The Omoda is limited to 80kW DC charging, this will charge the car from 30% to 80% in around 28min. Charging after 80% does slow down, so for you are better to split the charging up for longer trips. 

Type 2 Public AC chargers like the ones you find a super markets, malls, hotels & Motels. You will need to bring your own cable for these. Plug share will show the chargers in your area and you can see what sort of cables are needed. 

What sort of cable do I need for Public charging?

We recommend a 22kW Type 2 to Type 2 cable to make use of the faster 9.9kW charging speeds. 
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 wired so a cable is not needed 100% of the time.

Recommended chargers for the Omoda E5


If you have 3 phase at home you can get the Tron 22kW charger, this will only provide slightly increased speed over the standard 7kW charger allowing you to charge at 9.9kW reducing your time to charge from 10% to 100% by 1.5 hours.

Most homes only have single phase so our 7kW home charger suits most peoples needs. If you want to make the most of night rates and scheduled charging then our smart chargers can do this. 

You can choose from the version with a socket on the front and buy a separate cable that can be used for public charging. Or get the version with the cable attached.
