Frequently asked questions
  • Charging
    • How to plug the connector correctly ?

      When plugging the connector, make sure that there are no chips on it, it is not blocked with snow or dirt.

      Plug the connector tighly until the locking system clicks.

    • Do Malanka charging stations have Type1 or GB/T connectors?

      Malanka charging stations are not equipped with Type 1 or GB/T connectors.

      Type2, CHAdeMO and CCS Combo2 connectors are available at our stations.

    • Can multiple users charge at one stations at the same time?

      Mode 4 charging stations (CHAdeMO or CCS) can charge only one vehicle at a time.

      If the station also has a Mode 3 connector (Type 2), then one Mode 4 connector and one Mode 3 connector can be used at a time.

      Mode 3 charging stations can charge two cars at the same time. Please note that only one charging session can be started from one account at a time.

    • I cannot restart the charging session remotely.

      Plug the connector once again for successful restart.

    • Is the output power lower than the capacity of the station?

      The power of the charging session depends on many parameters, such as the battery temperature, the degradation factor of the battery, the model of the electric vehicle, etc.

    • How can I stop charging session in case of emergency?

      You can stop the charging session from the mobile app, or by pressing the emergency button on the station.

      ATTENTION! After emergency stop, disconnect the gun from the electric vehicle and release the button.

    • What are the operating hours of charging stations?

      Charging stations are available 24 hours a day.

      Access to charging stations located on the territory of third parties is carried out according to the work schedule of the organization.

    • What electric vehicles can be charged?

      Battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) can be charged at the Malanka charging network.

    • What is the output power at Malanka stations?

      Mode 3 AC-powered charging stations with a Type 2 connector can provide a maximum voltage of up to 400 V, a current of 32 A, and a power of 22 kW. Usually it's 400 V 32 A ~ 22 kW with three-phase connection and 230 V 32 A ~ 7.4 kW with single-phase connection. Mode 3 can fully charge an electric vehicle in 6-8 hours.

      Powerful Mode 4 DC-powered charging stations with CHAdeMO and CSS connectors can charge the battery of an electric vehicle up to 80% in 30 minutes (with output power of 50 kW). CHAdeMO connectors are designed for a maximum voltage of 500 V and a current of 125 A with a power of up to 62.5 kW. The CSS connector is designed for 200-500 V at 200 A and a power of 100 kW. Fast Mode 4 charging station can charge the battery in just 7 minutes for 35 kilometers of travel - several trips around the city.

    • Is it possible to charge an electric vehicle during rain/snow? How does low temperature affect the charging process?

      Yes, without fear of electric shock or damage to the machine.

      The electric car and charger have several levels of protection for such cases. They are equipped with numerous safety functions for short circuit prevention. The charging session will not start (the current will not go) until the connection is securely protected. Until the electric car and charger "make sure" that everything is safe. Vice versa, when the connector is removed from the socket, the power supply stops before releasing the connector lock.

    • Is it possible to charge at stations with capacity higher than the capacity of my electric car?

      Electric vehicles can be charged at all compatible fast or slow Malanka charging stations.

      At stations with output power higher than the electric vehicle can consume, the output power of charging session will be equal to the maximum power allowed for this vehicle.

    • How is cable theft protection provided in the case of using my own charging cable?

      During the charging session at the stations the charging cable is fixed in the connector of the electric vehicle and remains locked until you stop the session from the application.

    • Does the cable disconnect automatically?

      The charging gun is fixed in the socket of the electric vehicle. To disconnect it, you need to press the button on the connector. The button is automatically locked after the start of the session and unlocked after the end of the session, but you need to remove the charging gun manually by pressing the button.

      Malanka draws the attention of electric vehicle owners: driving an electric vehicle connected to a charging station is strictly prohibited.

    • Is it true that an electric car fills up 80% of the charge much faster than the next 20% ?

      The charging speed depends on the chemical and physical processes occurring in the battery and the charging is carried out according to the algorithm. When charging at fast Malanka stations, the charging time of the last 20% of the battery capacity increases significantly. Manufacturers use this charging control method to increase the service life and performance of your electric vehicle's battery.

    • Is it possible to leave an electric car without charging for a long time? For example, at the airport ?

      In places designed for charging electric vehicles, you can leave the vehicle only during the charging session.

    • How to plug the connector correctly when using an adapter?

      1. Plug the adapter to the electric vehicle, then plug the connector to the adapter.

      2. When plugging, make sure that there are no chips on it, it is not blocked with snow or dirt.

      3. Plug the connector tightly until the locking system clicks.

    • I can't disconnect the CHAdeMO connector after the end of the charging session. What should I do?

      In order to disconnect the blocked connector, it is necessary to open the plug at the bottom of the connector base and softly pull the cable of the locking mechanism to yourself. Then, after hearing a signiture sound, you can remove the connector.

    • What connector standards are used at Malanka stations?

      1. Type 2 (Mennekes): The 7-pin connector is typical for European electric vehicles. This connector can be used with a single-phase and three-phase system. Usually it provides 400 V 32 A ~ 22 kW with three-phase connection and 230 V 32 A ~ 7.4 kW with single-phase connection.

      2. CHAdeMO: 2-pin DC connector. Designed for use at high-power Mode 4 DC charging stations, allowing to charge the battery of an electric vehicle up to 80% in 30 minutes (with a capacity of 50 kW).

      3. CCS Combo (Type 2) is a combined connector that allows you to use both slow and fast charging points. The connector operation is possible due to the inverter technology converting direct current into alternating current. Charging with CSS Combo 2 is designed for 200-500 V at 200 A and a output power of 100 kW.
