It is important to choose the right charging station based on your EV. We offer normal, rapid and high power chargers! The time it takes to charge your EV at our various charging stations depends on the type of charger and car model. Battery temperature and battery level can also affect charging speed.
You can charge most EVs at our charging stations. If you are unsure about what applies to your vehicle, we recommend you contact your car dealer for more information.
We have many different slow chargers! Available power at the charging station can vary from 3.6 kW to 22 kW. The amount of kW that different EVs can receive varies, so we estimate a charging time of 3–10 hours.
You must have your own charging cable with a Type 2 connector to use our slow chargers.
Rapid chargers are an efficient way to charge your EV! Most of our charging stations deliver a charging speed of max 50 kW, and we estimate a charging time from 15 to 120 minutes, depending on vehicle type and battery level.
On a rapid charger the cable is always fixed.
High power charger
High power chargers are our fastest charging option! A high power charger can deliver charging speeds from 150 to 350 kW, and we estimate a charging times from 10 to 45 minutes, depending on vehicle type and battery level.
Most EVs can use our high power chargers, but not all vehicles can utilize the high speed. The cable is always fixed.
Glossary of terms
Originally a Japanese charging standard and cable type. Some older Asian EVs use this connector. Of EVs available on the market today, only Nissan still uses it. In addition, Tesla can use this type with a CHAdeMO adapter. CHAdeMO provides charging power of up to 62.5 kW, but usually only up to 50 kW in Norway.
This fast charging standard is newer than CHAdeMO, and has become a European standard. Most new EVs usually come with this standard. CCS provides charging power up to 350 kW for compatible models.
Type 1 connector
Many Asian EVs, such as the Kia Soul and older Nissan Leafs, have this type of connector at the end of the cable that is plugged into the car during normal charging. It is common to have charging cables that have a Type 1 connector at one end, and a regular household connector (Schuko) or Type 2 connector at the other.
Type 2 / Mode 3 connector
Type 2 connectors are the new standard connector for normal charging of EVs, and are used by all European EV manufacturers. EVs with a Type 1 connector can also use charging stations with Type 2 connectors, as long as you have a charging cable that has Type 1 at the end that is plugged into the car and Type 2 at the end that is to be connected to the charging station.
Charging station with dynamic load balancing
At charging stations with dynamic load balancing, the charging speed (power) will vary based on how many vehicles are using the system at the same time and how much power is available.
Power is the charging speed and is measured in kW. A charging station may have one or more charge points or charging cables. You can see the maximum power available per outlet/cable at the charging station. The power available can vary at all types of charging stations, including fast chargers. The power stated is the maximum power the charging station can provide, but be aware that your vehicle may limit the charging speed.
In 2020, we established 500 new charging stations in the Nordic region. And in 2021, we hope to increase the pace of expansion even more – and we will be focusing on high power chargers.
In collaboration with our skilled partners, we facilitate various service offerings along the road. This creates natural stopping places and gives EV drivers something to do while the vehicle is charging. We have over 2,500 charging stations in Norway, Sweden and Finland, and you can find them at a number of McDonalds restaurants, the grocery chain Kiwi, and energy stations such as Shell, Esso and YX 7-Eleven.See our partners

With the total amount of energy provided by Recharge stations from 2014 to 2020, EVs in the Nordic region could drive the equivalent of 430,000,000 carbon-free kilometres. That corresponds to taking a leisurely trip to and from the sun by a good margin, or driving:
