I posted this on the Speak EV forums, and thought it would be helpful here.

----

This is the only table I've seen (not from Polestar), so take with a pinch of salt.

But we know the 3-Pin and 7kW are close to accurate. (I think it's more 7 & 21)

135734



50kW = 168mph
150kW = 500mph

So I'm making an educated guess using the figures above.

50 kW 170 mph
60 kW 204 mph
70 kW 238 mph
80 kW 272 mph
90 kW 306 mph
100 kW 340 mph
110 kW 374 mph
120 kW 408 mph
130 kW 442 mph
140 kW 476 mph
150 kW 500 mph

So if your charging speed is around 250mph then that's around 75kW.

Not sure how accurate this is ... maybe if anyone sees a charger with the kW going on, they can recorded the MPH the car reported.

I think you miss understood the reason for the post.

In the UK at least when charging we get Volt's and just how many Miles Per Hour is going into the car.

Obviously this is good for the non-techie but for some of us it doesn't tell us what the kW's going in are.

So if a car has 300 miles per hour going into the car, we should be getting around 90kW's.

I did indeed misunderstand the table. I misread the (very optimistic) table being from Polestar.

We also only get Volts and km/h in the display - unfortunately.

To stay in line with the original post, you can expect roughly 450mph up to 40% SoC, 250mph up to 80% SoC, and 150mph (quickly decreasing) above 80% SoC.

I am waiting for my home charger to be installed so just using the 3 pin lead at the moment and there are some things people need to consider if they are planning on using trickle charging only.

I read on one of the EV forums that unless you have a new house (read new standard electrics) you should only charge at 6 amps not the max 10 amps, to avoid risk of overloading/overheating your electrics. Having an old house with the charging socket furthest away from the fuse box I have set to 6 amps and am getting an actual charge rate of 3-5 mph according to the car!!

Add the current cold weather to the scenario (-2 this morning) and part of the power is being used to condition the batteries so the charging is between 2-3 mph and sometimes charging is even suspended (I presume due to battery temperature).

Don't understand that, A ring main can supply 32amp. So the 10 amp should be fine. Especially at night when there is likely to be very little else using it.
