To avoid the low charge rate after a pause, I have been avoiding 'shared' Chargepoint stations. But this morning I was charging the MiEV at a 'shared' station (the only car there), and remarkably it went above 1.1kW after a pause. The pause was in the beginning of the 'ending taper', which unfortunately for my car that taper has been a shallow taper for several weeks now. I believe I have experienced battery degradation, since the car cannot seem to 'fill up' the final two ticks on the dash indicator. And my max guess-ommeter reading lately has been in the low 40s, even on 70 degree days.
Anyway, I'm thinking that maybe Chargepoint fixed something, since the rate after the pause returned to what it was before the pause. (See picture below.)
