* Rapid chargers are divided in two sections - AC and DC. Currently available Rapid AC chargers are rated at 43kW, while Rapid DC are typically 50kW. Both will charge an EV to 80% in around 30 minutes. There are two different main connector types for Rapid DC chargers - CCS and CHAdeMO - though additionally, Tesla Superchargers are also Rapid DC and currently charge at around 120kW.
** Fast chargers cover those with 7kW and 22kW power outputs, which typically charge an EV in 3-4 hours.
*** Slow units (up to 3kW) are best for overnight charging and usually take between 6 and 12 hours for a pure-EV, or 2-4 hours for a PHEV.
