Just to confirm. In a little over half an hour my Leaf with 6 kw upgrade went from 63 to 69 soc.

This compares with on Saturday going from 75 to 89% at a Nissan Dealer 32amp post.

Same cable. Both type 2 sockets. Similar outdoor temp. No other car charging.

So. 1.) Is the Asda post limited to 16amp?

2.) If it is is this due to site limitations (hard to believe as new build?). Or policy of Chargemaster.

D'oh! But even so, 6% in half an hour is 12% an hour or 8 hours for a charge. Not 32A!
Exactly! Wonder if this is the same at other Chargemaster type 2 posts. Whether it is just a cock up. Or a policy when they were planning to charge by the hour. Or some other, more reasonable explanation?

I used the Telford units during Christmas and they are still 3kw just like all the Podpoints in Plymouth. There must be some miss selling if the apps, websites and stickers on units say 7 and they arnt, as we switch more to charge for charging the providers need to get this accurate.

Does seem to be Polar / Charge master practice with new installs, at least at Asda - not sure if their choice or asdas
