Public charging with the EX30

There two types of public 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 App  Shell App and BP app 

A 150kW DC charger will charge the car from 10% to 80% in around 21min. 

Type 2 Public 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 11kW 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.
