FAQ - Charging

How can I start my charge session?

Starting a charge session is easy! Follow these steps in order to start charging:

  1. Activate the charger using the Fastned app, a charge card or another payment method.
  2. Connect the charger to your vehicle.
  3. Wait until the charger and the vehicle have established a proper connection. This may take 60 seconds.

Are you experiencing issues? Try the following solution:

  • Disconnect the charger from the vehicle and wait 10 sec.
  • Ensure the charger is responsive by pressing a button
  • Ensure your vehicle is turned off and in park
  • Start the session (via the charger screen or the Fastned app)
  • Connect the charger to your vehicle (Not sure which connector to use? Check out our vehicle tips in the Fastned app)

Still not charging? Try a different charger on this station.

In case of ongoing issues, contact our Customer Support team via the phone number on the charger.

How can I remove the connector from my vehicle?

Make sure the charge session has ended. Then remove the connector from the car and place it back in the connector holder.

In some cases, the vehicle does not let go of the connector. Here are some tips and tricks.


  • Make sure the charge session has ended
  • Unlock the vehicle with your key
  • Push the connector back into the car and try unlocking the charge port again (Yes, we know, it is already in the car - Just give it a try 😉).
  • You might need to try this several times. In some cases, the connector cannot be unlocked due to the cable's weight. This may block the locking mechanism of the vehicle. It helps if you support the connector while unlocking the vehicle with the keys.
  • Check out the vehicle page in the Fastned app. 

Still having issues? You may need direct assistance from the manufacturer of the car.


  • Make sure the charge session has ended
  • Press the button or move the slider on the connector to unlock the CHAdeMO connector.

Still having issues, even after you tried more than once? Then please contact our Customer Support. Scroll down to find our phone number.

Which charger should I use?

Every vehicle has a maximum charge speed.

You can use any available charger if the charger has the right connector for your vehicle. However, please note that your maximum charge speed is defined by your vehicle. If your vehicle's maximum speed is 130 kW, you will charge at most 130 kW, even on a charger able to deliver 400 kW.

How many vehicles can charge at one charger?

Many of our chargers can charge two vehicles at the same time. This will be easily visible as two parking spots will share the same charger. In this case, on some occasions, your charge speed might be reduced as power is shared between two vehicles.

How long can I stay parked after my charging session is finished?

To ensure that everyone can access the chargers and charge as quickly as possible, we kindly ask that you limit your parking time while charging.

How can I get a receipt for my charge session started via the payment terminal?

Go to to download the receipt for your charge session. This only works for payments made through the payment terminal on the charger.

It's essential to fill in the exact cost down to the cent of the session to find your unique session.

Please contact our Customer Support team, if you need help to find the receipt. Scroll down to get in touch with us.
