The downside is that it takes longer, but if you can put up with that, the battery life will be extended, as it prefers a slower charge. I wanted a higher rate of charge, so I fitted a 40A supply and a 32A charger in the garage. However, unless I am really in a hurry, I use the 16A setting anyway.
I agree with Notfred that the 76 mile range does sound a bit low. The cars with 27kWh batteries have an older battery technology, which seems to deteriorate faster than the 30kWh models. My 30kWh model shows 120 in winter and 150 in summer, with a fairly gentle driving pattern. The values are estimates which will vary depending on the pattern of previous usage and ambient temperature.
It could be that your battery is near the 70% SOH mark, below which KIA will replace it. They won't accept the value from the SOUL EV app, but it would give you an idea whether to go to a KIA dealer to ask for a warranty replacement.
Thanks, Ive ordered the Konwei to find out. Good to know I'm doing no harm with the 13amp (UK) charge all the time, it's plenty fast enough for what I need it for, quick short trips several times a day and put it on charge in between.
Hope this is the right one: https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32842035390.html
