    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:
    Anyone have time for a newbie question?

    ! 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.

    # Charging at 16A on 120V requires a NEMA 5-20 adapter (US$45) and a NEMA 5-20 outlet (often used in commercial location, using a 20A breaker instead of the typical 15A).

    These rates require dual chargers to be installed in the car (retrofit available for US$2000). The station will charge at a lower rate (max 40A) with single charger.

    ^ Charging at these locations requires an adapter (US$650) purchased from Tesla.

    Can someone confirm the "Amperage (max)" for CHAdeMO "Limited" (Nissan)?

    Try to fit in charging at 20A 120V, 1.92kW L1. I don't know if you want to add a line or update the 1st line, since 15A is the most common L1 charging.
