Electric car charging starting methods

With the popularity of electric vehicles, the convenience and diversity of charging facilities have become increasingly important. The electric car charging methods provide users with a more flexible and convenient charging experience. This article will introduce four common ways to start a car charging pile: plug and charge, enter a password to start, swipe a card to start, and mobile application to help you better understand how to use these different charging methods.

1. Plug and flush

Plug and charge is one of the simplest and most straightforward charging methods. Simply insert the charging plug of the electric vehicle into the socket of the charging pile, and the charging pile will automatically recognize the vehicle and start the charging process. This method requires no additional authentication or operations and is very convenient. However, due to its low-security characteristics, it is suitable for users with independent garages.

No account required: No registration or account login is required to use.


Less secure: no additional authentication and may be prone to abuse.

2. Enter the password to start

At the charging station, a specific password needs to be entered to start the charging process. This approach adds a certain level of security, ensuring that only authorized users can use the charging pile.


Improved security: Only users who know the password can use the charging pile.

Suitable for public places: Suitable for places where access to charging piles needs to be controlled.


Passwords need to be remembered: Users need to remember their passwords or store them in a safe place.

High security: only users with valid cards can use charging piles.


Need to carry the card: Users need to carry the charging card with them.
