The problem with using DCFC all of the time is that while they will work ok in normal temperatures, when the battery gets warm (like from high Summer temps) they heat it too much, pushing battery temps into the 'degradation zone'. Where are you located?
Sorry. Yes I should have made it transparent that I was located in the north of the U.K. - so no extremes of temperatures.

In that case all you really need to worry about is the DCFC stations being out of order. That's a real problem in the US, anyway.
