I've been watching more and more YouTube videos on road trips (love these time suckers, amirite?) for EVs, and one thing that came up in my head is that people like Eric (of News Coulomb fame) prefer to stop more often to maximize their DCFC charge rates by stopping the charge when they get to the first or second taper point. I, on the other hand, prefer to stop as few times as possible, so I end up charging long after the taper, just to get the necessary charge to get to my ultimate destination. So a couple of questions came up in my head:
- Has there been any scientific-ish experiments to prove whether one way or the other is more efficient? Should I be changing my charging habits?
- If you've done many road trips with your Bolt EV, what's your preference?
