I am little conflicted with this approach. Let me explain why. The gasoline is used for more than 150 years already, and everyone knows that the gallon is a unit of volume. So yes, $3.59 per gallon, anyone knows what it means.Too Funny. I am with you, Zapster. The layman will understand if you said 50 cents per kw. Its like like saying $3.59 per gallon.
It is explicitly not that. It's the equivalent of saying $3.59 per gallon per hour. It's nonsensical.Too Funny. I am with you, Zapster. The layman will understand if you said 50 cents per kw. Its like like saying $3.59 per gallon.
Well, there's another pedant's day brightened. I will have to post complete nonsense more often!It is explicitly not that. It's the equivalent of saying $3.59 per gallon per hour. It's nonsensical.
Just because humans are good at interpreting incorrect information via context clues doesn't mean that saying something that's complete nonsense should be acceptable.
Please see attached screenshot.I think the key figure is not 50kW but 50 cents. If it's 50 cents per kilowatt, then it's likely Level 3. If it's 50 cents per hour, then I suspect the unit is a mislabeled Level 2.
There have been several threads about it in this forum alone, but I think this one should be worth a look:Can you please provide additional information for those of us who have learned, apparently incorrectly, that Level 3 is DCFC?
I see at Denny's Delano | PlugShare a reference to EV Connect (New Electric Vehicle Fast Chargers Now Available Along State Highways in Central California | Caltrans). You may have to use their app to see accurate pricing. I just took a look at their app.
There are two ways to charge a battery :Can you please provide additional information for those of us who have learned, apparently incorrectly, that Level 3 is DCFC?
If you want to be really technical, there is only ONE way to charge a battery: DC. AC must first be converted to DC before it can be used to charge a battery.There are two ways to charge a battery :
The AC charging can be done on 110V and 240V circuits, thus L1 and L2 names. L1 = AC @ 110 V, L2 = AC @ 240 V.
- using AC
- using DC
DC fast charging is NOT a level of AC, thus the use of L3 name is wrong.
Yes, OP can look at top of 3 Factors that Determine Electric Car Charging Times. The max J1772 station delivery rate must also be at least 11 kW. Basically, you need an EVSE that can output 48 amps and advertise that via its pilot signal (Basics of SAE J1772). 240 volts * 48 amps = 11,520 watts = 11.52 kW."11kW is the rate at which you can charge at home on 240v power"
Should read as disclaimer. If one has a car with a 11kW charger then they might be able to charge near that rate. There is a number of variables that affect that number.
Re: stopping SAE Combo/CCS1 chargers, see PSA: On CCS1/SAE Combo DC chargers, best to stop the.... Whether you can stop them via their SAE Combo handle varies...Since you mention Delano, I HAVE charged my former Bolt at Delano Maintenance Station | PlugShare before, which has two FREE DC FCs. Used them during my road trip between Nor Cal and So Cal in Dec 2021. I took highway 99. They are part of New Electric Vehicle Fast Chargers Now Available Along State Highways in Central California | Caltrans. Those guys will NOT go above 50 kW though.
One unit worked fine. The other one worked except its LCD was totally out. The hardware stop button didn't work nor was I able to stop charging by pushing pretty hard on the CCS handle's trigger. I didn't want to break it as it didn't feel a two stage button that would ramp down charging then release. I had to press stop on my former Bolt's infotainment system.
If I had my Niro EV, I wouldn't even want to try it since it has no stop button I can find.
