    Just got my car yesterday. 140 km consumed. So I wanted to top up today by various locations.
    First used the 13A home car park plug, was doing 10 km/hour. The 13A three legs plug was very hot. Felt like burning fingers.
    2nd used the charger in Rumsey Street, was doing 40+km/hour using the blue cable. The connector was hot, and cable was very warm.
    3rd place was the 3-phase 32A charger in IFC Two. 95km/hour using the blue cable. Connector was hot, and cable was very very warm. I did use the ev-link card to activate the process. However, I didn't see myself paying anything from the screen.

    Did you install with dual chargers to get this rating?

    Yes, I installed the dual charger just hours before getting the car.
    It is not p85d, just a humble 85.

    tried the supercharger today in Wanchai. 280~km/hour. Best thing is got two hours free parking bundled with that free charge. I'm a happy camper!

    Welcome to the club! The cable can get quite warm but it is protected so should be fine.
