The
following
options
are
available
to
charge
the
high-voltage
battery:

Audi
recommends
using
alternating
current
(AC)
to
charge
the
high-voltage
battery
at
industrial
sockets,
charging
stations,
or
a
wallbox.
This
will
allow
you
to
achieve
higher
efficiency
and
a
con-
siderably
shorter
charging
time
when
compared
to
charging
with
a
household
socket.
Only
charge
at
household
sockets
with
the
Au-
di
e-tron
compact
charging
system
under
special
circumstances
when
it
is
not
possible
to
charge
at
an
industrial
alternating
current
(AC)
socket
or
at
a
public
alternating
current
(AC)
charging
sta-
tion.
High-voltage
batteries
age
over
time,
which
re-
duces
the
available
range.
High-voltage
batteries
can
also
age
because
of
how
they
are
used:
fre-
quently
charging
the
high-voltage
battery
com-
pletely
accelerates
the
aging
of
the
battery
and
reduces
the
available
range.
Charging
time
The
duration
of
the
charging
process
may
vary
based
on
the
following
factors:
Sockets
being
used
(household
or
industrial
sockets)
Country-specific
system
voltage,
current
strength
and
number
of
available

WARNING
Short
circuiting,
electric
shock,
explosions,
fire,
and
severe
burns
can
result
from
charg-
ing
the
battery
incorrectly
(for
example
by
disregarding
general
safety
precautions,
using
unsuitable
or
damaged
sockets
and
charging
cables,
or
charging
with
unsuitable
electrical
equipment)
and
can
lead
to
serious and
fatal
injuries.
Do
not
charge
using
sockets/electrical
equipment
that
is
clearly
damaged
or
instal-
led
incorrectly.
Never
use
charging
equipment
that
is
clearly
damaged
and/or
dirty.
Check
the
charging
equipment
for
damage
before
every
use.
Never
modify
or
repair
any electrical
compo-
nents,
especially
the
high-voltage
system.
Never
charge
in
areas
at
risk
for
explosions.
The
components
in
the
charging
equipment
can
trigger
sparks,
which
can
cause
flamma-
ble
or
explosive
fumes
to
ignite.
To
reduce
the
risk of
explosions,
especially
in
garages,
make
sure
the
Audi
e-tron
charging
system
control
unit
is
at
least
19
inches
(50
cm)
above
the
floor
when
charging.
Never
use the
charging
equipment
with
an
extension
cord,
a
cable
reel,
a
power
strip,
