The EV Time to Charge Guide is only an estimated time to fully charge your EV. Please only use this as a guide and consult your car manufacturer. Please note cars have different types of batteries and time to charge is not an indication as to the range available. ie a Tesla has a 400-500km range and so a standard domestic Australian socket will take longer to fully charge
