So, just getting the hang of this electric car.
Bought the S75D from a neighbor for 42k...think that was a good deal.
Went to plug it into my 240v air compressor outlet, but of course wrong plug. Plugged it into standard 120v and added 3-4 MPH charge. Slooooow.
Bought an adapter for the 240v outlet (30 amp service) and charge at 24amp and it adds some 16-17 MPH charge. Most the wife uses is half of the 200 mile range (set to 80% charge) and most she has ever needed is about 7 hours of charge to get back to 80%/200miles. Seven hours is fine if she plugs in at 5-6-7-8:00 at night to leave by 7:00 am.
So I think what I have is good enough.
But missing the compressor being plugged in whenever working on something in the garage. Sure, it holds some PSI for a bike tire top off. But for air tools and such, gotta swith out car and compressor. Not really a big deal. Once a week at most.
But an electic buddy will grab 6 gage wire and 14-50 outlet from work and add a dedicated outlet for Thor. Will be in right spot so she doesn't have to back in.
So guessing then I can bump up the charge rate to 40amp. Guessing we will get some 30MPH charge rate? Will be able to fill up the 100miles needed in 3 hours instead of 4 or 5 or 6. But why? Who cares what time of the middle of the night it is full....we are sleeping.
Am I right on all my assumptions? Is there any merit to charging at 24amp instead of 40?
Just wanted to post what I'm learning and learn more.
