Charging at a CEE Industrial Socket
You can charge your smart fortwo electric drive anywhere while you are out and about – provided that you have a mobile charging station, such as the NRGkick, and the right adapters. Depending on your model you can charge with up to 22kW of charging power at any 32 A CEE industrial socket, just like using the charging station at home.
Charging at Public Charging Stations
You can also charge up your Audi plug-in-hybrid at public charging stations. However, most providers of public charging stations will require that you register with them beforehand. As a result, public charging needs good planning. The be.ENERGISED system from has.to.be enables drivers of electric cars to pay for charging easily and directly online via PayPal or credit card, without the need of a prior registration.

Special Features when Charging Your smart fortwo electric drive:
Following the cessation of production of the current (third) generation of the smart fortwo electric drive, the fourth series of the agile urban hero is set to appear in 2017. With the introduction of the new generation, smart is making its entire range electric. In addition to this two-seater, the manufacturer also offers a four-seater and a convertible model. As usual, the new smart generation of the smart fortwo electric drive has a battery capacity of 17.6 kWh. The maximum speed of 125 km/h has remained unchanged, while the standard 11 kW on-board charger is a new feature. Just as with the 3.3 kW third-generation on-board charger, there is the option of increasing this to 22 kW. Daimler has also tweaked the driving range: the new model can now cover 160 km as compared with its previous range of 145 km. Factors such as driving style, season and use of the air conditioning system affect the driving range to a considerable extent. You can charge the car using a type 2 plug or it can be charged at 2.3 kW with a mode 2 charging cable via a separately fused domestic socket. For safety reasons, however, you should avoid doing this in the long term, since charging your car from a domestic socket will place the maximum load on the socket for approximately 8 hours. Depending on the on-board charger you have selected, you can use the charging station to charge your smart electric drive not only safely, but also four to eight times more quickly than at a domestic socket.
