Re: Can the combo Chademo/CCS stations charge at the same time.

The data sheet for https://freewiretech.com/products/dc-boost-charger/ says for Max Output Power (DC):
CCS: 120 kW
CHAdeMO: 100 kW
Combined: charge 2 vehicles simultaneously at up to 60 kW each

I've seen at least two in CA on Plugshare. https://www.plugshare.com/location/262762 is one. I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RndvcE8Q5k but haven't watched more than a few seconds.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Nice! It's interesting that for years I could never find a QC charger would would do two plugs at once (be it a Double CHAdeMO or combo CHAdeMO/CCS) and it seems all it took was just a software update to just split the power between plugs but just only recently started to happen. :)

I believe it requires the arthitecture to support it inside the charrger; a software update can't update certain types of charrgers.

It seems that the Tritium RT-50s can't do it, but the newer RTM-75s and later models can: "Twin cables to simultaneously charge two EVs". The earliest units delivered had to wait for a software update to enable the dual charging.
