How low was your battery SOC when you started charging?I thought I would 'test' rapid charging using a nearby Instavolt. I am sure before starting it 'informed' that it was a 75kW charger, yet during charge it maxed at 39kW. Is the first rapid charge constrained? Am I missing something? At least it worked!
I regularly use a BP chargemaster rapid and get the exact same trend as Devon dumpling, charging 20% - - > 80%If I use a rapid charger (generally Podpoints) generally I will start the charge at around 20% and I get a charge rate of something like 42 kW. This slowly increases during the charge to around 48/49kW at around 69/70% and keeps this rate until about 75% when it drops to around 35kW, it then drops to 23kW at around 78%. I have never charged to over 80% on a DC as
150kW is just a nameplate. Any DC charger output volts and amps. The volts is a function of the cell number and design. Record volts and amps and see if it achieving the vehicle limitsI have been trying the new 150kW Polar chargers at Colchester BP services. I've turned up with 33%, 41% and 56%, never got over 56kW out of them. I'm beginning to wonder if they're really putting out 150..
I'm wondering if they have an issue with the Colchester 150kWs as the guy in the shop said they keep coming back to sort the charging speed.I saw about 75kW on the Niro when charging on the Ionity 150kW rapid at Maidstone a few months back. You should be seeing similar on the Polar chargers if it is rated at 150kW
