1. Set the input current to anywhere between 16A–32A. To do this, go to Charging on your BMW’s display. Your choice is subject to the maximum limit of each model.
2. Switch off your car and plug the BMW Wallbox in.
3. If the blue light flashes, charging is in progress. There are two ways you can see charging times and battery levels:
4. Once your BWM is all charged up, unlock it to disconnect the charger. You cannot remove the charger without unlocking your car. This is a security feature to prevent unauthorized removal of the charger.
5. To charge at specific hours, select the start and stop times on your display from “Time Slot”. This feature lets you keep your car plugged in and charge during off-peak hours when electricity is at its cheapest.
Caution In an emergency, where a secondary charging cable is used (either a Mode 2 Cable or Flexible Fast Charger) with your home’s electrical outlet, choose the low 6A current for your own safety. Do not use this method regularly. Your home’s electrical system may not meet the standards required for vehicle charging. Most importantly, do not use an extension cord or an adaptor under any circumstance.
*To see your car’s maximum input limit, use the display. Go to Charging Settings > Current Limit. Select your preferred limit.
