Highest Level 3 kW charge rate observed so far?

Tue May 29, 2018 4:59 pm

I have seen reports of slightly greater than 53KW charge rate at some of the newer Level 3 DC, but this article again mentions the 80kW peak given ideal low starting SOC and temperature.
What is the peak observed in the field on the new 150kW or 350kW DC Level 3 stations with the Bolt?

" A Chevrolet Bolt can charge at least a portion of its battery at a rate of 80 kW"

I'd be interested as well. I've never used a charger that can put out more than 120A, so I've only seen in the low 40s on my Bolt.

While some people are hoping for a range bump in coming model years, I would much rather see a charge rate bump. Imagine a Bolt which could charge at 150kW, teamed with the coming EA network.
