As your vehicle has the 6.6kw charger and I assume maybe you have a 30kwh battery? you should gain roughly 25%/hr so if you plugged in for 4hrs, your car should have gone from 0% to almost full. Now if you have a larger battery or the EVSE where you charged wasn't the full 6.6kw, that would slow down the numbers. As Lefty said, at the temps your talking about(>-20 degrees) your charging shouldn't really be slowing down. Again as Lefty said, it't better to talk about percent charge vs miles which can vary widely, depending on your driving conditions.purplejulian wrote: ↑Wed Jan 13, 2021 10:11 amHi, I got a second hand Leaf on 23rd December, 2017, with an upgraded charger, 6.6, and 38,000 miles on the clock.
I drove it home on a very cold day (I live in Fife) and the only day when it's been happy and used a lot less charge was this Monday when the temp went up to 9C. last night I went on a 17 mile round trip and was taken aback how much battery that used, at minus 2C, got down to 19 miles. I haven't got a home charger yet, so I took it to the charger at the railway station this morning, which is walking distance, left it for 6 hours - it only went up to 59 miles! I am shocked at how difficult this is.
sadly my garage is not available for trickle charging as I'm turning it into a studio, and the electrics are not usable at the moment.
is it common for charging to be that slow in cold weather? (about 0C today) - but another public charger took it up from 30 something to 114 miles last week in similar temps. or is just that it was low to start with.
I didn't want to hook it up again and try overnight as the charger being in the railway station it felt a bit vulnerable.
For others Fife looks to be just north of Edinburgh Scotland, I had to look it up
