I'm wondering what other MS owners are experiencing with recharge rates. Mine don't seem to be what is advertised by TM.
I've installed a NEMA 14-50 outlet. The MS steps that Down to 40A at 236v. I'm supposed to recharge at 31mi/hr yet the best rate I've gotten is 22mi/hr which is ~66% of advertised. Normal range at beginning of recharge session has been between 140-180 miles left in battery.
When I used the SC in Gilroy I got a recharge rate of 112 mi/hr at the start of the session and ended at 88 mi/ hr. In actuality the beginning rate was 2mi/min for ~15 min, however the last 5 miles of charge took 11 minutes, well below 88 mi/hr.
I know there are efficiency losses in the system.
Do you think the meter is reading actual or theoretical re-charging rates?
What's your experience been?
