Lots of people ask about battery life, degradation, charge times, etc. both on the forums and in real life. Thought I'd keep track of things for a while and provide some info for current/future owners.
Having used 50kW DCFC, for a while, I think its more than enough power and speed for me, and I'm picky.
In fact I find it so adequate that level2 charging has become annoyingly slow. (I ran into a store, was expecting to take 10 minutes, so I was looking to come back with 30 miles added range. Took about 20 minutes, and 63 miles range added. ) A level two would have added max 7-10miles of range.
2019 120ah BEV, 90% DCFC for the last 3500 miles. Battery Kappa still shows 39.2-39.0 kWh, battery temps are consistently 28-30c while fast charging. With my driving style, fast and heavy, I add about 3 miles of range per minute of DCFC.
The 50kW CCS actually ranges from a low of 350Vx120amp to 400Vx120amp. Charge times vary based on how low SOC is when I plug in, since the car ramps up voltage in proportion to batter SOC.
I get the full 400Vx120amps until approx 87% SOC, by 94% its at 400Vx60amps, (usually when I end the session)
I'll add more, including pics when I DCFC and get home.
