Yes, it's the first screen, 2nd bullet down, the one that tells you how long it takes you to get to 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%. If you DC charge, it'll tell you what the charging speed is.

On DC, yes. On AC; No. There is a screen that will show you bloated estimated times to charge "if" charging at various rates but actually showing you the rate of charge "to the battery" ? Only LEAF Spy will do that.

Thank you - I have only did one DC charge and it was 6.6, and I wasn't sure if that was accurate as I noticed you could select the different charge speeds and change the estimate values.

6.6 sounds like the AC setting?

I was connected to Charge Point terminal via a J1772 connector. I have yet to try a DC fast charger yet.

6.6 is not the DC charge rate, it's AC, and it's just used to estimate the time to charge. Once you connect to a DC charger, the 6.6 will change to a higher number than that.

My wife and I visited a local Electrify America charging station last night to try out the whole process. While there I as able to see how fast the car was charging compared to the other day when I was just connected to AC.

The car was at 25% and we were able to charge at 48KWh until we hit the 75% mark and then it throttle back to 37KWh. We left around the 77% state of charge as I wasn't waiting and did not need a 100% charge.

Thanks again for the help - Earl
