Level 2 charging

Sat Jun 17, 2017 1:33 pm

Hello and I hope everyone is doing well. Does anyone know what the max amperage is that our cars will charge at with a level 2 charger.

The charger is actually in the car, and it has a power rating of 3.3 kw. A level 2 EVSE provides 240vac to the charging port terminals, so theoretical maximum is 3300/240 = 13.75 Amps.

Thanks for the quick reply. I knew the charger was in the car and was hoping it would charge at a much higher amperage. I don't have the quick charge option so looking for every little bit I can.

When I keep track of the charging speed in Canion, it usually varies between 13.5 and 14A, so it does match the theoretical 13.75A limit.
