Frequently Asked Questions

Our AmpCharge on the road charging points have industry standard CCS Type 2 and CHAdeMO connectors attached to charging connectors as required by ARENA, which are generally compatible with most electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles available in Australia. You shouldn't need to bring your own charging cable to site. However, you may need to bring your plug adapter.

Your electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle should lock the connector in place once your charging session begins. Along with your vehicle's security features, AmpCharge on the road charging locations are placed at our well-known Ampol locations where sites are well-lit and staffed where possible

The speed of charge is dependent on the power of the charge point and your vehicle's charging capacity - different chargers have different max power outputs or 'speeds'.

Please check your vehicle's charging specifications to find out the charge times for different charger powers. Estimated charge times are provided in the table below

^Estimated charge times are based on the industry measure of Time (Hours) = battery size (kWh) divided by charger power (kW) which is to be used as a guide only. Please note other external factors influence charging time including, but not limited to, your vehicle specifications, state of charge, air temperature etc.

*Charging point confidence range is the maximum distance that someone would be confident driving on electric power between charges. Real range will depend on various factors including driving conditions, outside temperature, heating/air conditioning and driving style, etc. 

+Charging time may be limited by the maximum charging rate of the electric vehicle. 


Before you can start your AmpCharge charging session, you will be prompted in the app to select your payment method. Each time you select your payment method (or add a new payment method) for AmpCharge, a temporary $30 pre-authorisation hold will be placed on your card. This small transaction confirms the payment method is valid and helps protect our customers from fraudulent activity.

The pre-authorisation hold amount will be automatically refunded to you once your charging session is complete and payment was successful. The refund process could take up to 5 business days depending on your bank.
