When you arrive at a charging station, tap Start Charging to begin charging.

What type of chargers are available on Setel?
These chargers are currently available on Setel:

What is the difference between CCS2, Type 2 and CHAdeMO?
- Type2 - An AC slow charging only suited for hybrid PHEV and also full BEV cars with CCS ports.
- CCS2 - A DC charging connector usually at DCFC chargers with (Combined Charging System) that can allow EV cars to use either a CCS2 (fast)/ Type2 (slow) charging if necessary.
- CHAdeMO -A DC connector only for Japanese EV cars like Nissan Leaf & incompatible with Type2/CCS2 port so it's quite rare. Available only at DCFC units & not AC wall chargers.
What do the charger power levels listed mean?
The power level indicates the maximum charging power the charger can deliver to the vehicle.
I am not a Setel user. Will I be able to use the EV charging feature?
Unfortunately, this feature is only available to Setel users.
Will a charging cable be provided at the charging station?
A cable will be provided at locations with DC Fast Chargers. At locations with AC Slow Chargers, you will need to bring your own charging cable.
We highly encourage you to bring along your own cable at all times as a contingency.
Is there a minimum charging time required?
There is no minimum charging time required to use the electric vehicle (E)V charging feature. Rates are based on the charging duration or kWh depending on the charging station

There is no maximum charging time.
However, as other EV users need to charge their vehicles, you can be considerate to others by parking your vehicle at the dedicated bay and disconnecting your cable right after you've completed charging.

Why does it say payment pending?
The app will display the payment pending status when there is an issue processing the payment. This can be due to an insufficient Setel Wallet balance, an issue with your bank card, or other technical/connection issues.
If you are facing this issue, you can leave the charging area first. We will reach out to you if the payment is not processed.
Why was my card declined?
A declined card (or payment authorisation error) might have occurred because:
- there is insufficient balance on your card.
- the card details are incorrect or have expired.
- you have exceeded the limit on your credit/debit card.
- the issuing bank has blocked the card.
- the payment method is blocked for security reasons.
Please retry after updating your card details and ensuring you have not reached the card limit. If you have hit your purchase limit, please try again tomorrow when your limit resets. Alternatively, you can try a different payment method or a different credit/debit card.
If your card is still declined, please get in touch with your issuing bank for further assistance.
