Are you trolling for indignant responses?
Not at all. I'm still new to the whole EV thing and trying to find definitions for all the terms is a bit harder than I think it should be. It doesn't help that the average customer seems to know more about the various systems than the average car dealer/seller. And of course, the average MNL forum user is probably more knowledgeable yet but still....from reading all the various posts here since I bought my Leaf (which has been my main education in the topic) I came to some erroneous conclusions about the what some of the various terms actually mean.
And as an entirely OT aside, it would sure be nice if there was a FAQ section somewhere that explained the differences between EVSE and 'charger', L1/L2/L3, DCQC, Chademo, kW and kWh, SOC and SOH, etc, etc. There is a lot to learn for a new EV owner and reading through years of posts is not an efficient way to educate oneself. For example, I've been reading MNL since I bought my Leaf 8 months ago and never once encountered a post indicating the precise definition of L1/L2/L3 charging. I made some bad assumptions and then repeated them and I'm sure I'm not the only one in that boat.
