Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I also requested from Kasey at Chargepoint that now that the situation is at least a little bit understood, that maybe they could empower their phone help techs with some sort of remote "restart" command. The idea being that I could track my own sessions, and call Chargepoint Help when my ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I filed an online request to Mitsubishi, pointing out that Chargepoint seems to not respond well to the MiEV pause, and I asked for a possible update so that charging would return to 3kW even after the pause on shared Chargepoint stations. Below is Mitsubishi's response, which (except for the first ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Below is Chargepoint's analysis and response to my request that they fix the shared stations so that my MiEV will return to 3kW after the pause, like it does on no-shared stations. Bottom line: The problem is not fixed. Chargepoint's email to me: Hi Kevin, Thank you for your eagerness to help on thi...

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 ...
