I releases when ever the charge stops so in most cases that is at 80% although it could be 100% an dnot recommended if done frequently. Every now and then is fine though.

There is the other aspect of someone else using their card... it is almost certainly against the Ts&Cs of the card issuer. Not that people care about such things :)

I had someone help me out, but I was there and we agreed a set timer charge (20 minutes). This was because of the @Ecotricity rapid having no signal, therefore it didn't recognise my (new to the machine) card, but his was working fine.

Just for reference this attached image shows the charge rate using the onboard meter on the back of one of the newer ecotricity chad/ccs units

44.4kW is such a weird figure. If correct then the power supply is greater than 63A 3 Phase and it should support much higher power charging... I wonder if the ~44kW is a car limit rather than a charger limit?

I know that the unit at fleet services also has a meter and that did 44.4kW as well.
The picture was somewhere on the M5, but I forget where, Im sad I took it in september ;)
