DC and Level 2

Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:01 am

Can I connect a DC cable and the Level 2 at the same time to my car to charge?

The Chademo I have access to peaks at 99A, but as the car battery reaches 90% it slows down to 11A.

Never thought of doing that, but I don't think the car could handle it.

Best practices (and best etiquette for other EV drivers) would be to disconnect from the Quick Charger when you're about 85-90% of charge or so, and switch to the level 2. Free up the quick charger for those who are closer to empty and can really take advantage of the higher charging speed.
