Interestingly, most people I talked to were not super "EV literate" and I always tried to direct them to this forum for more info. Almost everyone at the DCQC was charging to 100% (even though that last 10-20% overheats the battery and is relatively slow). I think this is just the newbie effect since I never felt the need to charge past 80% at the DCQC even without having overnight charging at the condo.EcoCarRental wrote:Becky50 wrote:We stayed in Lahaina for week in early November and saw only one LEAF. It was driving between Lahaina and Kaanapali on a Sunday afternoon. It was white. Next time we will rent from Shaun instead of Hertz. Hopefully, we will be returning in the fall.
The local dealer has been bringing in lots of Leafs in the past several months and I wouldn't be surprised if there were close to 100 Leafs on Maui. The recent great lease rates are the big reason for that. Hopefully we'll see you in the fall.
The last time I charged at the DCQC there was another Leaf charging, I noticed that the charger said he was only at 1.4 kw on his charge and when I went to ask how long he thought he might have left he said he was almost done since the charger showed that he was at 97%, so what he did was charge until the unit automatically shut off (it's set to give a 80% charge) and then plug it back in again to get to 100%. It will definitely be nice when we have more DCQC's.
