Answers To Common Questions About Electric Vehicles

Find comprehensive answers to the most frequently asked questions about EV connect charging stations. Our guide covers everything from home charging to public stations, and common questions about electric vehicle charging, empowering you to make informed decisions for your EV journey.

Q1: Can I turn on the air conditioner while charging?

  1. Yes, some vehicles need to turn off the system before charging, and then you can use the air conditioner after you start charging.

  1. Newer vehicles do not have the operation of shutting down the system, and the air conditioner is not affected by charging and can be used all the time.

Q2: Does turning on the air conditioner while charging have any effect on the battery?

  • It does not affect the battery but has a little effect on the charging speed.
  • When charging, the air conditioner and the battery are connected in parallel, with a small portion of the power used for the air conditioner and a large portion for charging the battery.

  • Comparing the power distribution data in the above chart, it can be seen that turning on the air conditioner during fast charging has very little effect on the charging speed, while slow charging has a bigger effect.

Q3: Can I charge in rain, snow, or thunder at EV outdoor charging stations?

  1. Just make sure there is no water or other objects in the interface before inserting the gun. And the interface after inserting the gun is waterproof, so charging in rain or snow is no problem at all.
  2. Charging stations, EV chargers, lines, cars, etc. have lightning protection design, charging in thunderstorms is safe, to be on the safe side, please stay in a safer indoor rather than inside the car at this time.

Q4: Can I sleep in the car while charging?

  • You can move around in the car, but don’t sleep in the car.
  • Restricted by the current battery technology, charging point may spontaneously ignite. According to national standards, the battery does not fire or explode within five minutes after thermal runaway occurs, so the car personnel can leave in time, it is strongly recommended that charging do not sleep in the car!

Q5: How much power left to charge better?

  • Car power to keep between 20% ~ 80% of the best.
  1. power below 20% should go charging, if there is a home charging can be used with charging, every day is slow charging on the battery is no effect!
  2. The car is just a tool, when you need to drive, even if the power to 0 will not have a visible effect.

Q6: How much power is better?

  1. Slow charging to any amount of charging has no effect, full best.
  2. Fast charging is recommended to 80% ~ 90% is better, part of the fast charging station to 95% or so automatically stop charging to avoid overcharging.
  3. Long-term low power will cause battery degradation, such as a longer period of time (more than 3 months) do not drive, please charge to 80% parked, it is recommended to start once a month to check, and in the meantime to the small battery charging.

Q7: Will there be radiation from electric vehicles or charging stations?

  • There is electromagnetic radiation, but it has no effect on the human body.
  1. Electromagnetic radiation is everywhere, the earth is a huge electromagnetic field, sunlight and all household appliances have electromagnetic radiation, as long as it is below a certain intensity is harmless to the human body.
  2. The state of the various types of equipment battery radiation has strict standards, measured data show that the intensity of electromagnetic radiation of electric cars is lower than the commonly used smart phones.
  3. Only high-intensity electromagnetic radiation and ultra-high-frequency ionizing radiation is harmful to the human body, need to maintain the distance to avoid excessive exposure, such as television transmission towers, large substations, hospitals in the X-ray fluoroscopy equipment.

As we’ve explored in this guide, addressing common concerns and staying informed on the latest advancements will ensure that your transition to electric driving is as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Remember, the more you know, the more empowered you are to make the most out of your EV charging experience. Here’s to driving into a future charged with clean energy and innovation.
