We had a little cold snap and I figured this might be my last chance to do a cold temperature L3 charging test.
I had an opportunity to do an overnight, UNPLUGGED cold weather soak and the next day, go to a near by level 3 charge station and record some information
Bluey sat outside unplugged overnight in -4F ( -20c) temperatures with 3 bars of charge. The next day temperatures climbed to 14 F , (-10 c) while I was charging.
It took 62 minutes to charge 8.2 kw, from 3 bars to 76%.
What was Interesting to compare to was………..
A similar cold temperature charge test when the car/ Battery was much younger
with only 12,425 miles (20,000 km) ,
The differences were -
The car was not cold soaked, it just came off a highway run but had to wait 30 minutes for an EV to charge, & temperatures were colder.
High Mileage 94,450 miles , ( 152,000 km)
Here is the link to the videos of the 2 tests for those interested.
