Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I have just realized that the ChargePoint website indicates a "shared" station in the 'more info' popup, by turning a little wishbone icon (lower right of the popup box) blue. The Parmer station shown just below is shared, where as the Nordstrom station screenshot below that is not shared ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Below is today's charge, showing what looks like a normal (not shallow) end taper. So I'm thinking my old MiEV is still OK. I am not sure why that end taper was so shallow the other day. It could be because of the throttling of the "shared" line, even though no other car was plugged in. Or...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I too had noticed that Tuesday's taper was quite shallow and long. I know that because I was sitting by the car in Texas heat, waiting for it to finish, in hopes of seeing exactly what the station display would show. I finally gave up. Yesterday's taper looked more like your graph (as I was monitori...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Now that I realize that there are "shared" and "per port" type of dual cord ChargePoint stations, I went today to charge at a "per port" station, to see how the MiEV's charging rate would look as it came out of the pause. It came out well, back to the full 3kW rate. So ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

This morning I charged some at home, so that my MiEV would more likely get fully charged while I was on my usual routine at the station that reduces my power during and after the MiEV's pause. The pictures below show the trace, and the displays at the start of charge, and near the end of charge. Not...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

This morning, as I was walking back towards my charging MiEV (about 3 minutes from the car), I could see on the app that it had just gone into the pause. When I got there, I snapped a picture of the station's display during a pause (the first picture below). It showed that the station was offering 1...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

This morning I tried to replicate the low charge rate problem by inducing a pause with the remote. Long story short: After both a short 20 second and a longer 6 minute "remote induced" pause, the charge rate returned well to the 3kW rate. And interestingly, since the car (as usual) paused ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Further Googling reveals that station's software version does not indicate the "Power Management" option or not. That power sharing kit is jumpers and labels. (See a screenshot of Appendix C below.) I intend to look closer for labels, but as of now I am not sure they are on the outside of ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

This morning I tried imitating/inducing a pause by holding the release button on the plug down, while staying plugged in. That did not work. A momentary press seems to stop the charging just momentarily, but a longer press (like a second or more) seems to cause the station to "say good-bye"...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I discovered this morning that just pressing the "release knob" on the charger plug (as if I were going to pull it out, but not actually then pulling out the plug) causes the low 1.1kW "post pause" charge rate to return to 3kW. (See the trace below.) I have read that pressing the...
