I agree. I mean it's not that people have to charge at the higher rate, it's just nice to have the option. Many of us EV'ers have a 50a outlet(14-50) which can safely charge at up to 40a or 9.6 Kw, why not let us do it
What I'd really like is a car that let the user adjust(limit) the charging amperage to say 12a, 16a, 24a and 32a along with the 40a max, but due to all the technoligically limited people
and insurance companies I really really doubt we'll get that kind of flexibility
