Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Did you know that there are two ways to charge your Aiways U5? You can either charge it using a regular wall plug or a charging station. However, while on the road, charging your EV in public can only be done via a charging station as a wall plug will not suffice. The charging speed of your EV depends on the kind of charging station or EVSE you utilize and the maximum charging capacity of your EV. A table of all available charging options for your Aiways U5, including the estimated time to charge your battery from empty to full, is provided below.


In Europe, the process of charging an electric vehicle (EV) can differ from country to country. Some nations tend to use 1-phase connections to the grid more often, while others mainly rely on 3-phase connections. Below is a table that demonstrates all possible ways to charge an Aiways U5. However, please be aware that some charging modes may not be available in some countries. To find out which charging options are accessible to you, kindly verify with your local electric vehicle charging networks.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Fast charging plays a key role in increasing the distance you can travel by providing an optimal amount of range in the shortest possible time. However, once the battery reaches an 80% state-of-charge, charging power will significantly decrease, making it difficult to charge the battery to its full capacity. Therefore, conventional fast charging rarely exceeds an 80% SoC. The charging speed of an electric vehicle depends on the charging station used and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. The table below provides a detailed guide on how to rapidly charge the Aiways U5.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
