How long does it take to charge?


Charging time depends on the size of the battery pack and method of charging, DC or AC. Most car batteries will charge from flat to 80% in twenty minutes on a DC fast charge. AC charging times range from four to eight hours. Please refer to your vehicle manual to seek clarification about charging times.
