This is from Wikipedia regarding superchargers: “They take about 20 minutes to charge to 50%, 40 minutes to charge to 80%, and 75 minutes to 100% on the original 85 kWh Model S.”
If my car has been parked for hours at 70% and I bring it to a supercharger, will it take less than 20mins to get to 90ish percent? Or does the ‘50% in 20mins’ rule only apply if you’re way below 50%?
I originally thought speed slows down due to heat build up of the battery (from charging), not the current power at the moment of charging.
