Was out driving 630 km today, got more than great speed for this little car.
Maximum should be 100 kW, but I got 101 kW at Ionity. Also I used an app from the UK, (Bonnet) that makes the charging be half price from using the Ionity app. Could not be more happy.

Skelton Lakes near Leeds was playing up today. I arrived with 5% SOC having driven over 220 miles from London and received a meagre 80kW charging rate right up to 80%. The others charging got even less so I shouldn't complain but, I would be shouting much louder if I didn't have discounted rates!!

Skelton can be a bit inconsistent, and I wonder why that is?

Sometimes on the way up, I get my cars max charge rate of 135kW, and then 2 days later on the way back I’m at 65kW. Both after a couple of hours driving and similar states of charge.

Yet, at Ionity Peterborough a couple of weeks ago, I charged there after only a few miles driving from a cold start and got 130kW.

It’s the inconsistency that puzzles me, maybe it’s something to do with those green boxes nearby, do they contain batteries?

I'm no electrician, but I believe that's part of the power supply (e.g transformers etc - I think they have a label on the cabinet with the voltage/current ratings). Maybe Skelton has a poor supply to site which leads to the inconsistency?

Pulled 93kW on a Kempower unit at Banbury Cross yesterday which was pretty impressive. Have had 96kW on an Ionity though. The E208 is a surprisingly capable car for long distances (well at least in the warmer months).
