Petronas Gentari Gambang R&R west DC charger now online – 50 kW CCS2 and CHAdeMO DC, 43 kW AC

There is a new EV charger at the Petronas Gambang R&R west-bound station on Lebuhraya Pantai Timur, which will make trips from the east-coast easier for electric cars to perform.

The charger is a triple-gun charger allowing you to choose from either a 50 kW CCS2 DC gun, a 50 kW CHAdeMO DC gun, or a 43 kW AC Type 2 gun. All have the same pricing – RM1.20 per minute.

    EV is the future of car industry, this is why Proton must release their Iriz EV or Geely EVs as soon as possible.

    Saw a tiktok yesterday about the journalist trying out the new Volvo EV. The car has no issues, however, charging it has become an issue. They couldn’t find a Functioning charging station after 3 stops. On the forth station only they managed to find a functioning one, after a few hours of looking around, and missing dinner time etc2. It is quite a terrible experience, worrying every minute about your battery draining for every KM you drive.

  • EV or ICE on Oct 11, 2022 at 9:07 am

    Given the recent (After MCO) highway jams/congestions especially on weekends.
    It’s true that Malaysians are now going travelling on a vengeance.
    Even the ques at petrol stations on the highway are ridiculous.

    If EVs are more affordable and used widely.
    Imagine the que of EVs at the charging stations.
    Yeah, you can say they will build more charging stations if there’s more EVs on the road.
    Now, how much land area are needed to provide for adequate EV charging stations considering hat it takes way longer to charge an EV than refueling an ICE car.

    I don’t think it’s feasible nor is it actually more friendly to the environment at all.

    All these hype about EVs are just to marketing strategies.

    I am actually perplexed Malaysia is setting a crazy precedent for itself by imposing fees on EV charging rate by minutes.

    Everywhere else in the world charging fees are imposed by the number of energy (kW) you car receives from the charger. That is a fairer rate.

    EV charger itself sometimes limits charging rate by number of cars being charged at the location. So if the number of cars being charged at the same location increases, the charging rate decreases and charging time becomes slower.

    Also the more full your car battery is as you charge, the slower the charging rate becomes. This happens in all electric vehicle. Its set by the car’s Battery Management System (BMS) to protect the car’s battery. Eg. the car may be pulling 100kw at 10% battery but as you charge your car may only be pulling 30kw at 90% battery. Thus longer charging time. So it will take as long a time for you to fully charge your car from 80% to 100% as compared to 10% to 80%.

    I am surprised this has never been discussed by anyone in the site or by Paultan team.

      We did a whole article about an EV’s charging curve

        Thanks Paul.

        I agree that article is about EV’s charging curve, but it is not on how EV charging rates are imposed.

        I think more awareness should be brought to the consumers about how EV charging is charged per minute in Malaysia compared to charged per energy (kW) like the rest of the world.

        Perhaps (pipeline dream) that will then bring a service provider to charge per energy (kW) in Malaysia and bring competition to the EV charging industry and change the way how fees are to be imposed in the industry.

        Charging fees per energy (kW) will also fast track EV adoption in Malaysia as its fairer and reduces uncertainty on how much a charge will be.
