I was finally able to log a 150 A session on the ChargePoint Express 250 station at ChargePoint Headquarters. The session went mostly as expected; however, the first step down from 150 A didn’t occur until 54% battery. Also, because this charger is limited to 150 A (the Bolt EV’s maximum charging current), I still wasn’t able to confirm whether the Bolt EV can draw additional power for battery conditioning and climate control when more than 150 A is available from the charger.

The majority of EV charging occurs at home. In this video we go over the different options available to EV owners, from using your EVSE with standard wall outlet to installing a home charger in your garage.
The Bolt EV is more efficient than many people give it credit for; however, it is still possible to drive with speeds and conditions that exceed a charger’s ability to add range. Essentially, you will spend more time charging than driving. This is a quick tutorial on how to adjust your driving speeds to best match the chargers available in the region where you are traveling.
