ChargePoint Express 250: Bolt EV 150 A DCFC Session

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.


Kona EV 180 miles trip, 143 miles left . 323 mile potential range

First decent road trip in wet and cold conditions on the way out and better in the way back.

Game changer? What other EV can do this, this easily without spending Tesla money.

Chargers, who needs chargers enroute?

With 4.9kWh in colder wet conditions and 5.3kWh in 17 degree dry weather the Kona certainly proved itself..

Seeing the incredulous look on an Ioniq owners face sums up this cars ability. A 180 mile trip and still having , in an Ioniq’s perspective, a full battery left!!!
