    Note: This data from this chart originally came from TMC members that live in the U.S. so the data is skewed to that market. Please feel free to contribute to this wiki by expanding it to be more globally complete.

    Props to "LoL Rick" for putting this together originally here:

    ! For the AC chargers, the amperage and power tend to be steady after the first minute of the session. For the DC chargers, the rate will fluctuate -- typically with a taper (downwards) as the SOC (state of charge) level rises.

    * These rates require dual chargers to be installed in the car (retrofit available for US$2000). The station will charge at a lower rate without them.
