17.4% lost isn't "a near equal level of power being taken from the wall that does not go to the battery." It's less than 20%. You may want to edit that.
His point was the pump parasitic draw was near equal regardless of incoming charge rate. 250 watts.
Thank you Dave for taking the time to write such a detailed response. Makes a lot of sense!
You are correct.
Leftie; As far as the statement, edit it to your liking. I really don't understand your confusion. The power from the wall is not a percentage, its simply an integral number. What does happen if the charge runs long enough on 240 is the power will boost roughly 55 watts or so. The number details I don't remember but it was insignificant. Full power was around 175 watts?
When my pump went out, I found that the pump which is variable speed, only runs at 3? speeds because of the limited signals from the BMS. It takes a while on 240 to heat up enough before the pump kicks into the higher speed. My pump had a busted impeller causing it to run at the highest speed which is why I noticed the problem since the car functioned fine and charged fine.
