Time2Roll covered it, I’ll just add that BEVs and EVSEs “communicate” on the available power and what the car needs. The charger is in the I Pace, so if you plug to an EVSE with LARGER capacity the cars charger will limit the maximum rate and charge as fast as it can perfectly safely. So larger won’t speed up the rate but has no downside (future proofing). If the EVSE is the limit then the car will simply charge slower.
The L2 plug has a limit of around 7.2 KW, you would have to use the fast charger connector (large units) to get the higher rates.
The L2 plug (J-1772) is designed to handle up to 80 amps.
There are a few charging stations e.g. Clipper Creek made that can deliver high currents.
Not many EV's have higher power chargers. Tesla has a 17.2 kW built in chargers option.
But the onboard AC/DC charger in the I-Pace only put out about 7 kW on current models.
I used an Electrify America charger yesterday for the first time....and possibly the last.
I had/have two separate issues with the system - and yes I have read previous posts on them..
Issue 1 was that despite being at 40% SOC the charger only ever pushed out a max of 39.33KW. I hadn't used...
ABRP: Has anyone used the app recently? Just tried for the first time in months and the updated app seems to insist on using commercial charging sites such as EA over other (free) sites even when the alternatives are selected as preferred.
since a cooling liquid level warning light popped out (apparently there was no leak, just a sensor malfunction) the charging rate overnight has fallen to 4% (3.87 kw per hour), a bit more than half the potential rate. charging the car from 0-100% can take over 24 hours. Is anyone experimenting...
After getting the H280 update from the dealer, my battery health looks normal. Maybe the API is giving better data?
Before I was getting only 77.8 kWh with 100% health and 100% Full on Wattcat
Here is what I'm getting now after 100% charge and some rebalancing
I just received the TeslaTap I ordered from here. I haven't been able to try it out yet, but I wanted to see what kind of experiences anyone else here has had with one. I plan to update this post after trying it myself.
To clarify for those wondering, the TeslaTap is an adapter that allows...
