Shell Recharge Simpang Pulai north-bound DC charger – 180 kW CCS2, book via ParkEasy, RM4/min

Shell Recharge has launched its fifth highway 180 kW DC charger on collaboration with Porsche in Malaysia. The fifth site is located north-bound on the PLUS highway at Shell RTC Simpang Pulai (Rural Transformation Centre), which is located just before the Simpang Pulai north-bound R&R.

Booking and payment for the charger can be made with Shell’s ParkEasy app. In the app, choose Shell HPC Northbound and then choose Simpang Pulai, Ipoh. Use our referral code R88W3N2T when you download the ParkEasy app and you’ll get some free credits to try it out.

As with the other Shell 180 kW chargers, although the hardware (and the corresponding physical parking) features dual CCS2 guns, only one can be used. The single gun is configured to output a maximum of 180 kW charging power. If Shell chooses to activate the second gun in view of higher utilisation in the future, each gun will probably output a maximum power of 90 kW each.

With the base level membership that has no annual fee, the 180 kW charger is priced at RM4 per minute with a minimum ParkEasy balance of RM200 required before you can start charging. You can reserve the charger 10 minutes in advance. You can also collect BonusLink points when you recharge.

Shell Recharge Gold & Platinum members can reserve the charger up to 1 hour in advance and charge at a cheaper rate of as low as RM1 per minute, but there is an annual membership fee to pay.

The other Shell Recharge 180 kW chargers are at Pagoh north-bound, Seremban north-bound, Seremban south-bound and Tangkak south-bound.

Don’t forget to use our referral code R88W3N2T when you download the ParkEasy app and you’ll get some free credits to try it out.

    At RM4 perminute how is it cheaper to run than petrol? Most cars will charge to 80% in 30 minutes . That is RM 120. For less than 400km range.

      30mins so long, why not they include Car Wash and Vacuum service for each charge.

    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%.

      Evolution, not revolution.

      We’re going too fast in this EV revolution. Perhaps the hybrids are best for now while we develop all the technologies needed to produce and use electric vehicles. It did take us over a century to develop the conventional vehicle to the point that it’s a relatively low polluting form of transportation. Given time, EVs will be ready for prime time, our charging grid will be more efficient and environment friendly, and our battery technology will not need illegal mining in Africa. Rushing into new technologies will always be a must have for the rich and committed, but an efficient eco system for EVs is still a few years down the road. Let’s transition gradually and acknowledge our limitations.

      DC chargers are for long road trip top ups so they know you have no alternatives but to pay by time rather than kW charged.

      As it is EVs are only viable for people with access to home charging.
