Charging Time

Post by JOL54 » Wed Jul 25, 2018 7:13 pm

Just turned 5000 miles and finding it jolly good. However now Polar are restricting to 90mins on fast chargers, does anyone know if the PHEV can be upgraded to take more than the 7kw?

Also I still find the 'hill start assist' working when going forwards annoying. Take foot off brake just before halting and it takes 2 secs or so before accelerator works!! Anyone any answers??

As far as I am aware the PHEV will only charge at 3.6KW irrespective of the charger. I have a 7KW Chargemaster charger at home because it was only an additional £20 but I wont get the benefit of it with the current PHEV.

Thanks - I stand corrected :-)

Wonder if it is possible to up that a bit?
