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.
So, how crazy is this? When you buy a car normally do you have to consider how or when you’re going to fill up? No. But with an EV we’re not quite comfortable the that batteries are bullet proof so we want to take care of the battery and not have it degrade on us.
Is it daft or is it sensible?
Charging cycles. Do we need to limit them, whatever they are? Shall we charge, daily, weekly and from and to what charge percents?
I’m sure some owners will just wing it and not care and maybe that’s the right attitude but it’s a lot of money to be wrong so I’m going the cautious route and trying to find out how to care best for my EV battery
How have you charged your EV? Has it degraded at all?
As we’re approaching the time for the first Kona reviews of UK owned cars, mine included, I’m starting to plan tests and review videos. Any thoughts or requests?
Lastly, I’m still considering changing the name of the channel to KONA Electric or Kona Electric ( EV Puzzle). Should I change it to reflect the Kona or should I keep it as is?
