    I was very pleased to see a 26mi/h charge rate.
    I wonder if others are getting these speeds considering it’s only spec’d to 23 mi/h.

    I believe the spec is to allow for people on 208v to have proper expectations without being overly complicated. You're getting at the high range of a 240v line.

    Nice, isn't it!

    I have 1st gen UMC and see 30mph charge rates on our NEMA 14-50 outlet. Best $39 I ever spent! lol
