Yes. The NRMA electric vehicle fast charger is designed to be used safely in all weather conditions. Note: for obvious reasons, if there is a blackout, the charger will unfortunately not operate.

You should typically allow for around 5-6km per kWh of charge. As with internal combustion engine vehicles, efficiency depends on driving behaviour and conditions. Please refer to your vehicle's documentation for more specific information.

It is not necessary to fully charge to 100%. We recommend charging to 80% unless you need a full battery to reach your destination. Charging to 100% will take significantly longer, and may unnecessarily occupy the fast charger when others are waiting. The fast charger has an option to select 80% or 100%. It is set to 80% by default. Depending on your initial battery charge, it takes approximately 40 minutes to charge to 80% battery charge at an NRMA fast charger.

Parking infringements are the responsibility of local authorities, not the NRMA. It is possible that some will enforce parking rules, so it’s always best to park the correct way.

It’s not mandatory for you to stay with your vehicle, so you're free to explore, but remember that it will take approximately 40 minutes for your vehicle to reach 80% charge. As soon as you have finished charging we recommend that you move your vehicle to a regular parking spot so that others can use the charger. Please note that the NRMA is not responsible for any damage caused to your EV at our charging station if left unattended.

Yes. Simply press the Stop button on the fast charger panel. You will need to wait approximately 5 to 10 seconds before disconnecting the plug from your vehicle. Some vehicles have their own cable locking mechanism that needs to be disengaged before disconnecting from the charger. For example, a BMW i3 will lock the charging cable until the vehicle itself is locked. Be sure to check this before disconnecting so as not to damage the charger or your vehicle.

For every unit of power used in our electric vehicle fast charging network, the equivalent amount of renewable energy is fed directly into the electricity grid. We do this by buying 100% GreenPower which is energy sourced from wind, solar, bioenergy and mini-hydro generators that produce zero net greenhouse gases.
