Possible the cold was related. I know performance is supposedly impacted by cold temps (although I haven't seen temps that low to verify yet) but it sounds like it behaved once it had more charging time under its belt.joeyfraser wrote:Hi,
I want to share a bad experience. I live closed to Montreal in Canada and it was very cold today, about -10 C / 14 F.
I have stopped to a DC charging station and my car was charging at only 30 amps.
After 5 minutes I decided to go to another DC charging station and the charging speed was only at 40 amps.
After spending 30 minutes on the phone with the technical team, I have decided to charge with a level 2 charger because it was less expensive at the same speed.
After 10 minutes I decided to try one last time the DC fast Charging station and finally I got fast speed at 325 V/108 amps .
Does someone have an explanation for my issue. I will call Ford tomorrow to know if there is an issue in cold weather with DC fast charging.
Thanks for your help
I couldn't agree more! I don't know how it is in the great white north but in ohio they have to charge by time because otherwise if you charge by the kWh you technically are an electric utility company according to state law and are subject to all the laws and regulations associated with being a utility company. This is really stupid and I hope someday they fix this.joeyfraser wrote:I agree that charging stations should charge by kWh instead of time. It would be more fair when they have less power to provide.
