This UK article brought this to mind: https://speakev.com/threads/unreliable-ecotricity-chademo-charging-with-i-miev-ion.1072/
Using 360v*5A = 1800W is the end charge power level at which the car tells CHAdeMO to stop and won't allow charging below this. Guess we then have to switch over to J1772 to fully top up the car. Using my EVSEUpgraded Mitsu unit I've charged mine at 120v*6A = 720W all the way to 100%, and it continued charging/balancing as it tapered down after that until it shut off.pbui19 wrote:Yesterday, in warm SoCal, the QC started at ~30+kw at about 50% SOC, then tapered to ~10kw approaching 80%. The Miev stopped the charge at 81%, but restarted upon pressing the charger "Start" button, again at around 10kw. But I stopped at 83% SOC, didn't want to push it. The whole time duration was ~20 minutes...

In addition to the stopping at 83% that pbui19 saw, has anyone else seen a power level lower than 1800W or any higher SoC when using CHAdeMO?
