I used an Electrify America station for the first time today in Frisco, Colorado. The station said the Chademo port was up to 50kw but it gave me 77kw at times and 74kw (the plus can take up to 100kw). I suspect their stations are actually 75kw on their Chademo ports rather than 50kw like the sign says. It was -1C outside (maybe 30F) no significant heat rising of the battery and no cold gating either (probably due to highway driving). Have any of you other Leaf Plus users had a similar experience on Electrify America getting around 75kw?
Yup. That is the norm. You didn't by chance record SOC when charge rate started dropping?

FYI; read "somewhere" the LEAF won't charge faster than 80 KW. Either way, its a welcome sight for me. I aim to Frugalize as much as possible on public chargers so I only charge until the rate drops below 45 KW (used to be 30 KW... ;) ) and unplug. There were a few times I had to rush around getting my stuff down on the stop. I was picking up 25 kwh in 23 minutes! LOVE that extra speed!

Thank you, I was suspecting so on all EA ports being like that which is a pleasant surprise. I did not know the Plus may not be able to do more than 80kw that is good to keep in mind. As for when I stopped, I stopped at 70% as I wanted a good buffer for regen going down the mountains. I think I was in the 60s at that point. I was also dealing with kids and such at the same time.

EA has added six sites to the "Coming Soon" List, which now shows 82. One is in Clifton, NJ; the other five are California sites: Two in Sacramento, one each in Walnut Creek, San Francisco and San Jose. I've added them all to WetEV's list.

And given that this is going to happen -- the sooner, the better. Standards confusion is a barrier to EV adoption.
Tesla's charging incompatibility is an attempt at monopoly.

If Tesla controls the majority of charging networks, Tesla controls the market for EVs.
If you will stop and think about it I think you'll see why your statement is a false charge.

Tesla does nothing monopolistic to prevent others from becoming much more involved in charging infrastructure and standardization. They create no market barriers to entry, do not buy out their competitors, do not keep or force competition out through price control, do not have a monopoly on such supply chains or political control of them, etc.

Any lack of quality competition in this arena is on the part of non-Tesla parties.

EA has added three more sites to the "Coming Soon" map, for a total of 85: Bowie and Clarksburg, MD, and Bellevue, WA. I've added them to WetEV's list. Hopefully they'll soon add the sites needed to complete the X-C interstates.

EA has apparently opened three sites in California (none of the other "Coming Soon" sites in other states has changed), making 15 for the month and 393 total, but I haven't tracked them down yet except for San Leandro (Urb., I-880 ex. 34). The other two are probably in SoCal.
Hopefully WetEV can provide them.

Also, at some point this month Delano, CA was removed from the "Coming Soon" map, and Tulare was added. The latter is a better location for people visiting Sequoia N.P. from the south, although one in Visalia would be even better.

Two sites are open, making 17 for the month and 395 total: San Jose #2, CA (Urb., Jct. S.R. 85 ex. 1B& U.S. 101 ex. 377A); Somerdale, NJ (I-295 ex. 29/29A/30).

I believe one of the sites I missed yesterday is in San Diego: San Diego #3, CA (Urb., I-8 ex. 4B/C, off S.R. 163).

Edit: Add Sunnyvale, CA (Urb., U.S.101 ex. 394). I'd already recorded the San Diego site.

Three sites are open, making 20 for the month and 398 total: Castro Valley, CA (Urb., I-580 ex. 35/36); Fremont, CA (Urb., I-880 ex. 21); Fairfield, NJ (Jct. U.S. 46/C.R. 613, off I-80 ex. 52).


There are now two sites in Fremont, and I need to check my list to see if this is an old one or one that I missed from yesterday, but FWIW here it is: Fremont #2, CA (I-680 ex. 14 or I-880 ex. 15). I also need to check a couple of the sites from yesterday to see if they are old ones.

Network effect.

"SuperChargers" and "Destination Chargers" for Tesla only.

More cars, more Superchargers, better selling environment for Tesla cars.

Updates to EA sites. I'm traveling. Will be slow or not at all until I get back in another week.
