What is the "dual charging port" option on the eTron? I was going through the website, and didn't understand what that meant.
Both the 22kW charger and the dual charging port are not available in the USA, as far as I know.

The USA has only the standard 11kW left side setup.

When I was configuring the Sportback, it offered it to me as an option.

Beyond home 100amp charging, I can't say I know of any 22kW AC stations around.

There probably are few or none in the US. It's probably European 3-phase AC charging over a Mennekes Type 2 connector. We don't have Mennekes Type 2 here.

See https://insideevs.com/news/342860/renau ... apability/.

J1772 AFAIK allows for up to 80 amps. 80 amps * 240 volts = 19,200 watts = 19.2 kW. IIRC, there's virtually none that go that high over J1772 (hard to even find over 30 or 32 amp J1772 in public). 1st few gens of North American Tesla wall connector could go up to 80 amps over their connector.

One of the three versions of Sportback shows the dual charge ports (CCS on left, J1772 on right) that would support a dual charger. I wasn't able to actually get the dual charger, or maybe I did, but I'm tired of messing with configurations. So I'm wrong on the dual charge ports, and very likely wrong on the 22kW charger.

J-1772 can't handle 100 Amps.

https://www.plugshare.com/location/115192

And a few other locations. Is at the limit of J-1772, 80 Amps. 19.2kW. Almost no cars can use this. A very few older Tesla Model S cars can.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAE_J1772#Charging

Not clear even if an Audi with "connect package with 22kW charger" car would charge any faster than 11kW from a single J1772. You might need to take two stations to get that...

GCC:
Audi boosts specs on 2021 e-tron family, lowers price

https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/0 ... -audi.html

. . . New for model year 2021, the Audi e-tron model lines receive revised packaging, including attractive entry pricing with a new Premium trim level. As a result, the e-tron SUV is offered at $65,900 starting MSRP for the model year 2021, a decrease of close to $9,000 from the starting MSRP of the model year 2019 Premium Plus e-tron.

The e-tron lineup also receives a number of technical spec enhancements for improved utility. Through optimized drive system hardware and software adjustments, the 2021 e-tron achieves efficiency improvements resulting in an EPA-estimated range of 222 miles, an increase of 18 miles. Meanwhile, the e-tron Sportback delivers an EPA-estimated range of 218 miles. . . .

For a more efficient configuration, thanks to a number of optimizations, the front electric motor is able to be entirely disengaged, significantly reducing power usage when not needed. Only when the driver demands more power or traction do both motors spring into action.

In addition, the usable amount of the high-voltage battery has increased for the model year 2021 e-tron lineup. The battery in the Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback have a total capacity of 95 kWh and now gives customers access to a net energy figure of 86.5 kWh—almost 3 kWh more than 2019 e-tron model. The energy buffer is designed to help ensure customers enjoy sustained battery performance throughout the life of the vehicle.

Enhancing the charging experience are dual charge ports on the driver and passenger side of the vehicles, newly available on the Premium Plus trims of the e-tron and e-tron Sportback.

I pulled up to my local evgo today (1 DC and 2AC plugs, AC are free). First surprise, was that 2 other EVs were there. A bolt and an A3 with and eYron badge.

I pulled in and saw the Eton badge but thought no way this thing rides lower than my leaf. Walking around i see its the plug in A3 (with AC only charging) . I didnt know the plug in carried the eTron badge.

The bolt driver was sleeping and not actually charging, so asked him to move so I could dc charge.

I think you've mistaken the dead A3 e-tron PHEV for an e-tron BEV.

viewtopic.php?p=531046#p531046

A3 e-tron PHEV can't be DC FCed and has is inlet in the front nose. e-tron (no A) BEV has charging inlet on the side and is a much larger vehicle.

Yes, that was the car. The new owner of the car was trying to figure out the l2 va l3 charging...only having l2 on the car. I didn't think that car came with the eTron badge on the back of it though.
