Can the combo Chademo/CCS stations charge at the same time.

As per the title. Can for example a bolt and leaf charge at the same time.

Just curious.

Haven't heard of any where both sides can be active at the same time.

A while back while I was QC'ing my eGolf (CCS) a Leaf pulled up and wanted to charge. There was a separate CHAdeMO station but it was occupied by another Leaf. I helped the guy try to charge but the station (made by ABB) wouldn't let him access the CHAdeMO half of the station.

Fortunately for him I had enough to get home by that point so I just disconnected and let him charge.

^^^ I can understand that. To be able to charge both at the same time, not only would you need 2 separate very large breakers/lines but basically 2 separate EVSEs, one feeding each plug, it would basically double the install cost.

Kinda thought so. I just though maybe that something like current sharing similarly to a supercharger was possible.

The way SuperChargers do this is both neat and annoying. It lets them put in 8 SC stalls, but they are in pairs. Only when 1 car is connected at the pair will it pull the full amount the SC is capable of outputting. Since SC isn't linear, the sharing between the pair tends to work out.

However, it sucks when you are alone at a SuperCharger, and the next person who arrives decides to plug in next to you. You come out 10 minutes later expecting to leave only to find you still need 10 more minutes of charging. The only good news is that the app will tell you this has happened -- if you are looking at it.

There's a dual-CHAdeMO charger run by Blink in Diamond Bar that can charge both at once.

Blinks can hook up to two cars, but only charge one at a time. Then when the first car finishes, it switches automatically over to the second car (assuming that person applied their card, etc....)
