This just opened up just south of the Bay Area.
Story is the Brit flash of the i-Pace is 150 kW capable, but the US is capped at ~84 kW still?
Anyone with the latest flash try this DCFC?

How do you know if you have the latest flash? My car was back at the dealer last week and they said they did a software update so maybe I have it, but that location is too far for me. I'm in Fairfield, CA. I'm waiting on some of the Electrify America locations to open. Novato and Livermore outlets not too far for me and plan to try when they open this month.

Current software is 14.2. If you got to the main setup screen you can find the software update screen

Here's what I see.
If you select ‘Check for Update’ it should populate the Telematics with version 14.2. The battery one remains blank
Thanks for the tip and all the other info you've been giving me. I'm on 13.2. So maybe the dealership bs'd me when they said they applied a software update to my car?

That’s different. My screen and every other one I have seen the Battery Software Version remains blank and the Telematics software version populates with 14.2. (See attached). Supposedly version 14.5 is being released on 12 Dec18, but will not be available OTA.

It is very interesting that on the Jaguar USA website, it now lists the DCFC speed at 100 kW - "The I-PACE is equipped to accept up to a 100 kW DC charge rate — this means you can easily achieve a 0-80% charge in just 45 minutes."
It also implies that the L2 Charging speed is 32 amps. So at 240vac, that's 7.7 kW not 7 kW (30a = 7.2) - "Jaguar recommends a ChargePoint CPH25 Home Charger. This 32-amp, 240-volt charger..." Somebody with a WiFi smart charger can verify what speed it actually charges at.
I know that to get to 99% took less than the estimated speed.

I have the ChargePoint L2 and my charging rate maxes at 7.6kw

According to the EVgo website and Plugshare.com the 120 kW DCFCs at Baker (I-15 between LA and Las Vegas) are online.

Just tested Baker. I arrived with 38%, and it charged at 72 kW then tapered down. So not really fast but faster than 50kW.

45 min session added 43kWh. So starting with roughly 1/3 battery, it adds about 1 kWh a minute for the EVgo's 45 min session. EVgo's stop at 45 minutes. At 85% it ran at 40kW.
If I had wanted to, I probably could have made the 240 miles trip to Las Vegas without charging, but that would be cutting it very close. There is a lot of elevation changes.

DC charger is rated in volts and amps. Wild guess the rating 120 kW is 600 volts and 200 amps.
Your actual charge rate will depend on battery voltage and the max amps.
I-Pace I believe is 450 volt battery so 450v x 200a = 90 kW might be max actually available.
Of course the vehicle can limit the rate also. Going to be very rare to actually get the full rating posted by the DC charge station.
Most talk in kW but the amps are the real limit.

These bad boys are badged at 350 kW at the pump. The label is ~200-980 vdc @ 350 amps. So not really the 350kW on the pump face. The display does list Volts and Amps or even kW when charging, and neither do our Jaguars.

But they are nerfed down to 120 kW if the EVgo website is to be believed. And I believe the Jaguar is not 100 kW as their website states.

Use ABB chargers on the North side. The center 350kWs would not accept my EVgo card, nor could the EVgo operator communicate with the charger.

Correction - Does Not List kW, Volts or Amps on the northern end 350 kW chargers. Someone from EVgo emailed me after they read I charged there and wanted my feedback.
