DCFC is the charger, it negotiates the power delivered to the vehicle, when using Level 2 the charger is in the vehicle.
You're technically correct, but this kind of pedantry is like the folks who will point out that strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are not berries, but “aggregate fruits”, and cherries are not berries either, they are “drupes”, and mulberries aren't berries, they're “multiple fruits”. On the other hand, eggplant, bananas, cucumbers, pomegranates and chili peppers are all berries. So when you ask for berries on your cereal, don't be surprised if you get slices of cucumber and habanero.
Yes, technically we should either refer to “charging stations” or “EVSEs”, but people will call them chargers and that's perfectly okay to anyone who is happy to consider a peanuts, cashews, almonds, and pistachios nuts (technically, they're not, of course, but let it go folks).
VF - TY for setting me straight on comms between car and EVSE / charger...I made a bad assumption. I find the Chevy app on my Android slow and kludgey.
WB - I do know where the various chargers live...even if I was sloppy as to terminology.
anytime you interpret a post of mine as being "pedantry", sarcastic, or not helpful, be confident that you have misinterpreted my intention.
If that particular post, or any other of my posts, have come across that way, I apologize. My only intent is to share information I have learned from personal experience with the Bolt over the last two years, my knowledge as an Electrical Engineer, and that which I have learned from you, and others posting to this forum.
Based on the prior question and my response to
, I was trying to distinguish between types of chargers, on-board or external. Re-reading my post a potentially better response would be "To my knowledge, the JuiceBox lacks the circuitry or hardware to decode that information and report it, if that information is even made available by the Bolt once it determines it is connected to a level 2 EVSE, like a JuiceBox"
