slow charing on 2019 Bolt

8115 Views 20 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  SGW
I have a 2019 Bolt and I find that when I use the provided battery charger that i only get about 3 miles of range per hour of charge rather than the 4 I was told that I would get. I do live in Phoenix Arizona, so it is hot, but i haven't seen anything that says that this will reduce the rate of charging. Does anyone have any ideas on whether I may have a problem with my charger or if this is "normal"?
Any ideas are appreciated.

“I'm not getting the advertised charging rate, what's up?”. By saying that @jimbrodie needed to plug it in to 240V, it certainly gives the impression that this is the normal and standard solution to get the advertised charging rate. You can say that wasn't your intent, but that's how I read your message.
title was to slow char the Bolt...
Well, if you're just going to read the title and ignore everything else, let's say @jimbrodie needs to plug into an Electrify America DC fast charger to charge the Bolt at full speed!
Your response was on point. I was anticipating future forum responses by others in reference to plugging the Bolt's OEM EVSE into 240V.
