I wanted to get to Exeter on my test to try the CHAdeMO charging but it looks like I won't have time so can someone tell me how long a empty to full rapid charge takes please?
Not yet, but more opportunities coming up tomorrow as travelling down to Portsmouth if I have more time. It's not particularly rapid considering the small battery pack. I did 10 minutes at Membury last night to test it and got from 30% to 50% - forget the exact numbers voltage/current but it was taking about 20kW peak rate.I wanted to get to Exeter on my test to try the CHAdeMO charging but it looks like I won't have time so can someone tell me how long a empty to full rapid charge takes please?
Can you get yours to EV ever go beyond 80%.24 mins to 80 % starts on 29% though.
Just do a 2nd charge on my Leaf. Always works for me!What is the easiest way to get it to 100%? Mess about with the unintuitive menu settings or can you just do a second stand charge and go back for a second zinger burger?
Where was this? Reading westbound and Chieveley didn't work for my Outlander. Ecotricity claimed other charge sessions were OK so no fault their end. Everywhere else was fine so suspect it is something subtle on their end.First attempt at rapid charging the outlander had 75% charge (was just by curiosity since the bay was free) and although it looked like it was going to start, it just didn't charge at all.
For all types of DC charging the car is in control sending a variable demand signal to the DC charger. So, within the ultimate power capability of the charger, the vehicle determines end points and charge rate.Just do a 2nd charge on my Leaf. Always works for me!
If that doesn't work for the Outlander then it would suggest that the car has some say in the matter.
Was it an ecotricity charger?Charged my GX4H at Rownhams yesterday. Went to 80% initially (330v ar 50A). The I set a timed charge and it went merrily on it's way towards 100%. I got bored at 87% and stopped it there. I don't know what would have happened had I selected the timed charge from the outset.
