It is also called super fast charging or ultra rapid charging because it can charge very fast (10-25 minutes).
The DC designation derives from the fact that the charger directly supplies DC current to the vehicle. However, this means that it cannot be powered by a simple three-phase power supply, but a special installation needed in order to rectify the AC current. It also needs high power supply as DC charger charging stations can provide very high charging power such as:
– 50 KW
– 100 KW
– 150 KW
– 300 KW
