Kinda cool to see you took on 22 kw in 20 minutes.

That's nothing. The really smart ICE drivers take on 300 HP in 20 minutes
Heh heh. Went back and fixed it for ya. :)

Yeah, I was very plesantly surprised, as I only expected to see the 53KW I have recieved at other stations. What is additionally nice, is that this keeps me at the .25/minute rate and not the higher tier rates.

Its also good to see that the Leaf Plus can charge at faster rates then the earlier cars as promised. I only had 20 minutes. Some other time I will try to do a fuller charge to see if I get a better graph of where the charging rate reduces (though I know others have done this too).

I was digging through some old posts and came across one that suggested that opening the hood can reduce the rate of battery temperature increase.

Has anyone else tried that? Any success?

I'm sure that it helps. The question is indeed "How much"? It would help most with an active cooling system, of course.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Yes, Active cooling would be better. While I have yet to run into an issue charging due to heat, I have had the battery get pretty hot, so just looking at ideas, as for July and August. The other months, it really doesn't matter as ambient temperatures fall pretty fast, and the extra heat on the battery becomes a positive, not a negative.

This tester appears to have been able to get better efficiency out of the Leaf Plus then the Tesla 3 LR. It’s a minute or two into the video when he shows the spreadsheet. The road he tests on is 50km/h<— guess it’s 70 kWh/w or about 31mph. It’s interesting that at speeds where drag is not much of a factor how much rankings change. Ionic and Soul do very well.
