Hey guys,

Using my CCS charge from 3% to 100% on a >60KW CCS fast charger (150 amp) as the basis for the break over points on charging speed (more pessamistic than others I have seen) and a bunch of math for other charging speeds 50KW (125 amp), 50KW (100 amp) and 24KW (60 amp) I have developed a charging time calculator where you put in your estimated mile per kwh, and the number of miles you need to go to get to the next charging station and it will tell you how long you will need to charge for each of the above specified charging stations.

Since we can't upload exel files for some reason PM me and I will e-mail you the file.

Enjoy!

Keith

PS: if anyone can host this so we can have a direct link that would be fantastic!

One suggestion, you could upload it to Dropbox, Google Drive or another cloud hosting service then create a shareable link from within that service and then post the link here.

I put together a very similar calculator based on my charging sessions; however, I'm not sure that I would use it as anything more than a curiosity. Not only will you encounter variances based on the chargers and the state of charge when you initiate the charge, the charging speeds will also be affected by heat and cold. Likewise, the amount of time someone needs to spend charging will vary greatly based on the distance to the next stop, weather conditions, and driving efficiency.

I have your starting SOC, and your estimate of your efficiency in mile per kWh built into the calculator, not sure how much heat and cold affect charge rate, but the calculator shows charge rates for all available DC chargers (150 amps, 125 amps, 100 amps and 60 amps), and most AC charging options (7.7KW, 6.2KW, 3.6KW, 1.4KW and 1.0KW)... if extreme heat or cold will affect your charge rate, drop down to the next lower charger for a more accurate charge time.

Later,

Keith
