    Finally decided to use my first charging station ( don't have access to a home-charger plus my new place does not have EV hooks)
    Damaged my rim (rim rash) looking for this place on Friday

    Had the car for 6 days and have been babying my battery/range.

    Got me a ChadeMo....

    Found a local DC Fast charger....

    Repaired my rim

    Charging at 146mi/hr.

    Congratulations. Sounds as though you need to change your handle. You're a lurker no more!

    Congratulations.

    Those CHAdeMO connectors are certainly huge, heavy, and clunky compared to the Tesla connector.

    Nice! By the way, you should look at the kW for the actual charging 'speed'. It gives you a better idea of the instantaneous power, rather than mi/hr, which is averaged over the entire charging session. Chademo gets you up to 50 kW I believe.

    Switch to battery percentage to get kW (you can make an identical profile for kW to switch between these quickly).
