READ MOREIn short, a kW means kilowatts and is a unit of power measuring the rate at which energy is consumed or produced. For electric cars, kW represents the rate of power from the charger to the EV battery, indicating how quickly the charging station can charge your car. Whereas kWh, meaning kilowatt-hour, indicates how much energy your EV battery

READ MOREkWh, or kilowatt-hour, is a unit of energy. It''s used to measure the amount of energy that an appliance uses over some time.
