### Dead Traction Battery to Full Charge

Posted:

**Sat Feb 08, 2014 7:40 pm**I went out today with the goal of hitting turtle, well a few seconds after turtle the traction battery cut off the drive motor at 4 GIDs. The temperature was about 56 F outside and I had the defroster and rear window defroster on to help deplete the battery. I suppose that is why I had 4 GID's on the meter with a dead car (I did give it full throttle after turtle to see how fast i could go which was about 40 mph). Lucky for me I coasted to the stop sign and the eVgo DC charger was 100 feet or so away! The car really pushes easy! First Charge completed at 91% capacity with 21.20 KWh added, second charge completed at 1.543 kWh added at 97% Charged for a

my usual GIDs after charging is about 265.

**total of 22.74 kWh**. The DC charger charged at 125 amps @ 391.5 volts which would be 48.9 kW until about 60% charge level and then started to ramp down.my usual GIDs after charging is about 265.
