Ambient temp: 86F
Starting SOC: 26%
End SOC: 72%
Dash battery temp gauge at beginning of charge: amazingly, in the exact same spot as when I left Sturbridge 75 miles earlier - gray bar one notch shy of first red line
Leaf Spy battery temp at beginning of charge: couldn't get a current reading
QC rate started at 30 kW (351V, 86A) (I didn't see where it was after that because I went grocery shopping for 30 minutes)
Dash battery temp at end of charge: the gray bar had one red notch on it, like the tip of a lit cigarette - this red notch ended about 2/3 of the way between the first and second red lines
Leaf Spy battery temp at end of charge: 128.7F
QC Time: 30 minutes, 57 seconds
Energy charged: 15.100 kWh
Average charge speed: 15.1kWh/.516 hours = 29.3 kW
Let us know your report, if you do the same trip in mid August.
