The present paper is a sequel to the paper by Karchev (Condensed Matter 20 February 2017). We report the numerical solutions of the system of equations, which describes the electrodynamics of s-wave superconductors without normal quasi-particles for time-independent fields and half-plane superconductor geometry. The results are: (i) the applied magnetic field increases the Ginzburg–Landau (GL) coherence length and suppresses the superconductivity; (ii) the applied electric field decreases GL coherence length and supports the superconductivity; (iii) if the applied magnetic field is fixed and the applied electric field increases, the London penetration depth of the magnetic field decreases. The main conclusion is that by applying electric field at very low temperature where there are no normal quasi-particles one increases the critical magnetic field. This result is experimentally testable. View Full-Text
