This is a Japanese blog that I stumbled across through a YouTuber.
...The words get jumbled in translation, but the message is still there. "The battery gets hot quickly, and the charge rate plummets"...
Google translation does not produce that actual quote.
Not enough intelligible data there to really discuss, initial charge state, ambient/battery temperatures, charger ratings etc.
We'll have many long-range trips with charging rate data from USA LEAFs to consider, very soon.
But thank you for making a semi-on-topic comment, after the 25 consecutive off-topic comments before, and already one more afterwards.
No thanks for your summary, troll.
How is that a troll? He just pointed out that it doesn’t say what you claim and doesn’t have enough other information to draw any conclusions.
Basically, dude went on a 4 day road trip, drove 1500km, and was disappointed in the charging stations. Some gave as little as 9.6kWh in 30 minutes. I can tell you he’s just goofy. When you buy the car they tell you to avoid 20kW chargers unless you just want a quick top up, and that it takes 40 minutes to get to 80% at a Nissan 44kW or service area 50kW charging station. He goes on to say that he hopes the rumored 150kW chargers are installed at service stations soon.
The part you mention says, “It says on some other blog that quick charging heats up the battery and the amount you can charge is diminished. Indeed, in one 500km leg of my trip where I charged 5 times, the amount diminished as I progressed.”
However, he doesn’t say what type of chargers he stopped at, how hot it was outside, or anything that will help us know if this is a real issue. Service areas along toll roads tend to have 50kW chargers, but I’ve seen 20, 25, 30, 40, 44, and 50kW “quick” chargers.
I’ve never seen the battery even get to the halfway mark of the heat bar thing in all my quick charging. But to be fair it’s been between 0 and about 15C every day since I got the car.
