If you don't like the temperature jump from L2 charging, DCFC is going to be quite a bit less appealing.
If you are willing to make do with a number, then about 3 kWh every 4-5 minutes.
I gather you have been charging at Blink stations. Do they report kWh delivered from the meter ? If yes, please repeat the test during a recharge. It will give us some data regarding the accuracy of the miles/kWh meter.
By the way, I may not have answered your earlier question in a helpful way. '12 bars' of battery capacity correspond to 85 - 100% new battery capacity, and 100% is ~ 22 kWh. Since your car reports 12 bars, you expect the test to return a result between 18.7 - 22 kWh. That is probably good enough data for you, but once you are confident that the car battery metrics have not been meddled with you can always get from LeafSpy [the best data we know of].
Ahh ok now I understand the numbers. I think. Lol.
The battery is 24kWh but only 18.7-22 is available when the battery is in good shape?
I remember reading 21 somewhere.
Yes I'd imagine QC is gonna heat up that battery more than L2. Seems I'm staying at 7 bars even without charging. It's at that now after I went to the store.
I drove like an 85 yo grandma there, lol, in B mode/eco, it's only 4 miles r/t and with regen, I left at 59% SOC and came home that way. I like that.
Yes been charging at Blink, I think they show you that kWh delivered. I've been calling them and complaining why it doesn't show on their app after charging is completed but in AZ it's a pay by the time state where as in CA etc, they have a set rate based on kW used.
I'll look next time on their screen, that it if I can see it. They are soooo washed out and I'm on my third Blink card now cause none work but the app works to start the charge.
Thanx again, as always, for your speedy, informative replies
