I have heard Teslas at Superchargers that sound like little airplanes with propellers.
I'd describe the noise more like a jet getting ready to take off. :lol:

If they had just build a couple head sinks and a fan into the 62kw design, it would have killed most of the whining about the car battery.
Is that like Torgo's executive powder? A Nissan executive in every Leaf?

FYI; the full rate on "most" chargers around here at 90% SOC would be higher than 44 KW. That is only 366 volts. Do you have a charge curve you can post?
I'm afraid I don't have charge curves. We almost never stay with the car while it's charging, and I've found that LeafSpy loses its connection after a minute or so if the car is turned off. Do you have a trick to keep it recording while you are away?

I was actually surprised to see ~44kW above 90% SoC. With previous Leafs I thought it would only get about half that above 85%. Have I mis-remembered the typical charge taper?

Plus could be different although I doubt it. The 40 kwh LEAF would be well less than half that rate.
