15. How long does a charging process take?
This depends on your electric car model and, of course, to what percentage your electric vehicle needs to be charged. Generally, electric vehicles are not charged above 80%, otherwise the battery can be damaged. Numbat can charge with up to 300 kW charging power (when both charging points are in use with up to 150 kW each). However, it must be said that the actual charging power of electric vehicles always depends on the vehicle type. So if the charging level of your car is less than 150 kW, even at a fast charging station like Numbat you can only charge with the maximum charging rate of your car. The charging time is correspondingly variable. Generally speaking, the higher the charging level, the faster the charging process (if the electric car can retrieve the charging power).
16. Can I reserve a Numbat for charging?
No. A Numbat charging station cannot be reserved in advance at this time.
