A charging station (5) for an electric vehicle (1), wherein the electric vehicle and the charging station each have couplers (4, 81) & communication modules (20, 121). The couplers are relesably coupled for transfer of energy & the communication modules communicate the charging data. The charging station further include: an interface (83) connects with an external source (77) of electrical energy; a control module provides control signals and a switching module (120) is responsive to the control signals for selectively connecting the second coupler (81) and the interface (83) for allowing the transfer of energy between the couplers (4, 81); and operating in: a first mode to allow provide at least one of a regulated the coupler current or and the coupler voltage to be regulated; or a second mode to allow the provide an unregulated coupler current or and the coupler voltage to be unregulated.
