Charging with Electrify America

Electrify America charging stations

The future of charging

Our Direct Current (DC) chargers offer the fastest charging speeds (Ultra-Fast 150 kW and Hyper-Fast 350 kW) —letting you charge in as little as 30 minutes! Here’s what to expect when you charge with the largest DC fast public charging network in the United States.

Charger labels

After months of research, we’re introducing new charger labels created with help from drivers like you!

At the top of each label, you’ll find connector icons that match your vehicle’s charging port. At the bottom, lightning bolt icons signify the charger’s power—the higher the kilowatt (kW), the greater the power.

Our charging stations offer three connectors:

  • Green Hyper-Fast labels indicate CCS connectors delivering up to 350 kW.
  • Teal Ultra-Fast labels indicate CCS connectors delivering up to 150 kW.
  • Blue CHAdeMO labels indicate CHAdeMO connectors delivering up to 50 kW.

Tip: Not all EVs can charge at a connector’s maximum power level. For example, a Hyper-Fast label means the charger offers up to 350 kW for a CCS-compatible EV. If your car is not capable of a 350 kW maximum charge, the charger automatically supplies the highest power level your vehicle can handle. Check your vehicle’s manufacturer manual to learn your car’s capacity.

Balanced Charging

At Electrify America stations, you may notice the word “Balanced” on a charger’s labels or screen. Balanced chargers are typically located side-by-side and share a power cabinet. When a charger is Balanced, it can supply Ultra-Fast speeds up to 150 kW for vehicles capable of accepting this much power and can provide Hyper-Fast speeds up to 350 kW to capable vehicles when the adjacent charger is unused.
