Fast charging stations use direct current (DC) chargers.
DC fast chargers offer the fastest charging speeds available today. Current DC fast chargers supported by Electrify America include the Combined Charging System (CCS) connectors and CHAdeMO connectors. The brand of EV you drive will determine which plug you can use. You should be able to find out more about your vehicle’s capabilities from your owner’s manual and the manufacturer’s official website.
CCS and CHAdeMO chargers differ in the speeds at which they can charge. CCS on Electrify America’s network can charge at speeds up to 350kW, while our CHAdeMO chargers can charge at up to 50kW. Electrify America stations have CCS chargers with varying speeds, ranging from 50kW up to 350kW. Not all EVs are capable of charging at the charger’s maximum power level. Check with your vehicle’s manufacturer to find out your EV’s charging capabilities.
All Electrify America charging stations have both CCS and CHAdeMO plugs available. A select number of Electrify America stations located in metropolitan areas will also support Level 2 chargers. That means it doesn’t matter what kind of EV you drive—just about every EV model can use our stations.
