    Hi all

    Can I ask what might be a stupid question. If someone is plugged in at he charger using the chase mouse cable, can I charge using the ccs cable?

    Or do the chargers only charge one car at a time?

    Sorry of this has been covered before I’m new to electric cars

    Thanks

    It depends on the model of charger

    In general if a car is using the Chademo plug then you can't use the CCS

    The opposite isn't true however, on many of the triple head units starting the Chademo will stop the CCS if it's in use

    You can always use the AC to slow charge while waiting

    The exception to this rule might be the chargers at J14 on the M7. They're dual plug units and it seems they will divide the power in two if 2 cars plug in at the same time

    The 150kW units load balance too. Kilcullen, portlaoise, Athlone, carrick on Shannon.
