1) The charge curve will probably be the same as the 54kWh iD3.Does anyone know where to find a charging curve for an ID.4 with a 52kw battery. I can see the bigger battery option on Fastneds website, but nothing for the smaller battery,
I keep trying to get more than 65kw but have failed, more often than not I get 54kw, starting with battery percentages from anything from 5-20% up to charges starting with 40 or 50%, I get the same result of 54kw per hour petering out to around 30kw once the charge gets into the 70% range. That's after a run (or not) to warm the battery.
Just wondering (assuming it is) if this is normal for the smaller battery and it charges at quite a lot slower rate than the larger battery, and why that might be.
2) Just because you’ve been driving doesn’t mean the battery is warm, moderate speeds on flat motorways, don’t heat the battery. Try setting the charger as the location in the onboard nav, the car might preheat the battery. Try driving faster as you get near the charger.
3) Smaller batteries charge slower than bigger ones. You just have fewer cells to share the electrons between.
