I'm curious about the max recharge rate anyone has experienced in the Bolt.

I have seen approx 46kW at a 50kW DCFC station. Regenerative braking however seems to cap out around 70kW. I thought I read that the bolt could do 80kW charging, so I was surprised when I couldn't get it to go above 70kW (using L and Paddle from highway speeds). Has anyone plugged into a source rated 80kW or above? What did you see?

You would also need to be near zero % to get max charge rate...

Teslas superchargers can pump 120,000 watts into their batteries but you only see this amount of power below 15% charge - it quickly tapers to far less ending up at about 10,000 watts at 90% charge capacity
