The right charge point for the BMW i3
With a regular wall socket, the BMW i3 can take up to 11 hours to charge. However, with the right charge point charging times can be decreased significantly.
As displayed in the overview, the BMW i3 is compatible with 3-phase 16A charging. On a 220/240 Volt network, this results in charging speeds of 11 kW.
The charging time is estimated by dividing the battery capacity by the charge capacity of the charge point. Actual times may differ.
