2018 Bolt EV Premier Nightfall Gray
I agree many seem to think faster is always better no matter the cost. In fact, my primary EVSE is 30A, and more than adequate for a 99th percentile driver. Not as fast as I could get, but rarely takes more than 3-4 hours to top off. And a 2.88 kW $30 “hack” in my case is a cheap insurance policy.A 130 mile commute is like in the 99th percentile of commutes. It's a mistake to take an outlier such as that and normalize it. That's how we get folks who have a 7 mile commute thinking that they need a full blown 32A EVSE installed.
I have seen people argue they need 40A EVSEs for future proofing, because they may someday buy a car that charges faster. Never mind their 40 mile commute won’t change, or that completing charging at 7PM vs 7:30PM will make their lives any different.
But hey, maybe they have more cents than sense. At least they keep the economy humming.
