I was thinking if the plug keeps reading 1350 watts but the charge is tapering, maybe that is where alot of waste is, near the end. But, its looking like that is not the case. But, i'd like to actually see it if i can, just for personal satisfaction! Thanks again for all the comments!
The reading will not stay at 1350 watts or whatever your rate is. It will drop. The issue you have is that the rate is so slow. On a fast charge, the rate is constant (like yours) until it hits the knee which is when the current starts to drop. (voltage ALWAYS stays the same)
Its this curve that illustrates the maximum rate at which the batteries will take a charge under that given condition. As the SOC rises, the amperage continues to drop and will eventually drop to the rate of your level one charge. the slower the rate of charge, the higher the SOC when the knee occurs. This is quite literally near full in your case. You are talking the difference between taking 40 hours on level one to 90 minutes on DCFC. If you are part of the Seattle LEAF FB group, keep an eye out. I will be posting a pix of a curve that goes pretty low but still does not get down to level one speeds.
