The batteries of electrified vehicles can only be charged with direct current (DC). This can be found at IONITY charging stations across UK and Europe where the EQC has the ability to charge at 110kw. The home Wallbox charger, most public charging stations and “high-voltage sockets” all supply alternating current (AC). To make charging possible, EQ vehicles are equipped with an on-board charger – an AC/DC rectifier – to convert the alternating current into the required direct current. Charging capacities of between 2.3 kW and 7.4 kW are possible, depending on the on-board charger and the capacity of the charging cable (rather than the capacity of the charging station).
