Charging screen questions

1. Why does supercharging show mi/hr estimate, but charging from a standard outlet or HPWC does not show this info?

2. Why can’t I select a higher charge current on some circuits? For example, I charge at work using an outdoor 110v that uses a 20A breaker, but I can only select up to 12A, despite nothing else tying up the circuit. I used to charge my LEAF with an adjustable EVSE set to 16A and never had an issue. And being a commercial property, you would think the wiring and circuit quality would be good enough for more than 12A...

My guess:

Supercharging rate varies: very fast when your battery is low and very slow when your battery is filling up.

Other non-Supercharging rates are pretty much constant so there's no need to watch for a change in rate.

... 110v that uses a 20A breaker..

Are you using the correct adapter that looks crooked and not nicely parallel?
