1st DC fast charge!

I live in rural Arkansas, and the first CCS station within reasonable driving range just opened up, with 4 350 KW CCS plugs, 3 150 KW CCS plugs, and 1 50 KW CHAdeMO plug.

Starting with 53% SOC when I plugged in it started off with 54.46 KW charging rate, and about 35 min later sent me a text saying I was at 80% SOC. By the time I walked back to my car from shopping, I had been charging for 42 min, and was at 85% SOC and the charge rate was down to 18 KW. Over all I received 22 KW in 42 min, for an average over the charging session of 31.4 KW. I know that starting from a lower SOC would have gotten me a better average charge rate.

Anyone have charts for charge rate on a high power CCS (350 KW or 150 KW) made from real world data yet? I am curious about the charge rate vs SOC for the high power units.

Thanks for the link. The article says Honda and Kia optimized thier small battery for quick power than density.

I am wondering if it is possible for Bolt to upgrade charging speed with the software upgrades in the future.
Interesting video on how power/amps drops with the charging progress. Wonder if it is bolt that is controlling to drop.
