Carput Zap has deployed its first public DC fast charger in Penang and it is one of the fastest on the island. Best of all, you won’t need to download any apps as you can activate the charger from your phone’s web browser.
Carput Zap’s new DC charger is among the fastest on Penang island
The new charger is a 120kW DC fast charging unit which has two CCS2 nozzles. It is located at New World Park in Penang, which is just next door to Tune Hotel along Jalan Burma.
Carput Zap’s 120kW DC charger is priced at RM72/hour which is essentially RM1.20 per minute. We’ve been told that you can activate in 15, 30, 45 or 60-minute charging blocks. This means a quick 15-minute charging session will cost you RM18 while a 30-minute charging session will cost RM36.
To activate the charger, you can scan the QR code or use Carput Zap’s mobile page and complete the payment via credit/debit card.

The charger is priced at RM1.50 per kWh and you can activate it by tapping your credit or debit card at the terminal which has a RM50 pre-authorisation amount. Alternatively, you can also activate this charger via ChargEV and JomCharge.
