Our unique charge point selector shows which charge points and connector types current EV models are compatible with. With this easy-to-use tool you simply choose a specific vehicle model to generate a list of suitable charger types and connector information.
Charge Point Types
There are four main EV charging types: Slow (up to 3kW) which is best suited for 6-8 hours overnight; Fast (7-22kW) which can fully recharge some models in 3-4 hours; and Rapid AC and DC (43-50kW) which are able to provide an 80% charge in around 30 minutes.
Zap-Map is focused on providing the best possible information to support the growing EV community. Users can submit a new charge point for inclusion on Zap-Map and report an issue with an existing unit. Join the Zap-Map Community and share with other users your EV experience. We welcome feedback on any EV or charge point issue.
