When and how to use a DC Fast Charger

The DC Fast Charger faster than a Level 2 (AC) charger and is easy to use. Just like any Level 2 ChargePoint charging station, just tap your phone or card, plug it in, charge it up, and you're off to the road. The best time to use a DC Fast Charger is when you need to charge it immediately and you're willing to pay a little more for convenience -- such as on a road trip, or when you're low on battery but pressed for time.
Check out these tips for a quick charging experience.
Know about type of your car and connector
The DC Fast Charger uses a different connector than the J1772 for stage 2 AC charging. The leading fast charging standards are SAE Combo(CCS1 in the US and CCS2 in Europe), CHADEMO and Tesla (GB/T in China). More and more cars these days are equipped with a DC Fast Charger, but be sure to take a quick look at your car's port before you try to charge it.

Save fast charging when you need it most
The cost of a DC fast charger is usually higher than a secondary charge. (Because it provides more power, DC is more expensive to install and operate quickly.) Given the extra cost, this doesn't mean a quick charge every day. But there's another reason not to overcharge on DC: A lot of power comes from DC fast chargers, and managing it puts extra strain on your battery. Using a DC charger all the time reduces the efficiency and life of your battery, so it's best to use it only when you need it. Keep in mind that drivers who are unable to charge at home or at work may be more dependent on a DC Fast Charger. Using a quick charger when you don't need it can keep people who are desperate to recharge from using it.
Follow the 80% rule
Every car battery follows a so-called "charging curve" as it charges. When your car is affected by a variety of factors (from the battery charge level to the weather outside), your charge starts to slow down, then climbs to maximum speed for as long as you can, then slows down again to around 80% to extend battery life.
With a DC Fast Charger, it is best to unplug when the battery reaches 80%. At this point, charging is significantly slower -- it takes about as long to use up the last 20 percent of the charge as it does to use up 80 percent of the charge. Unplugging when you've charged to 80% is not only more efficient for you, but it's also considerate for other electric car drivers and helps ensure that as many people as possible use Fast Chargers.
