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 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...
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.
I normally have to set a departure time on my I-Pace to get my ChargePoint Home Charger to wake up my I-Pace so that it can initiate a scheduled charge. However, thanks to sheltering-in-place and not driving much theses days, I forgot to follow this routine and simply scheduled a charge using...
I just got a 2020 I-Pace and can charge with DC fast public chargers, but neither the home charger nor any other AC L2 charger works. It either stays on initializing or gives a charging fault. I’m wondering if anyone has dealt with this and whether there is an easy fix.
On Friday JLR published new fuse block diagrams for the i-Pace in Topix. One of the interesting fuses is fuse F13 in the Front Junction Box Right, which it says has a function of “Module-Control-EV Wireless Charging”. Did the i-Pace engineers plan to try and add wireless charging in a future...
