Hi,

I did a quick charge tonight on my 2018 PHEV and let the battery charge from empty to 80%. The charger stopped on it’s own and I unplugged the charger according to the instructions on the machine. When I started my PHEV the EV System Service Required light came on and the car drove more sluggishly than usual especially at higher speeds. Any advice? Anyone had this issue?

Okay,

Just in case anyone has this issue. I took my 2018 PHEV SEL to the dealer this morning and they hooked it up to diagnostics. They said as far as they could tell, the CHADEMO charger that I used had a faulty connector or cable which triggered a sensor in the car. Once this sensor was triggered, it stayed in "limp" (EV System Service Required) mode until he reset it. Now it's functioning fine and charges normally with the included charger. Be careful out there!

I had a Chademo charger cut out on me every 2 minutes due to "isolation test failure". Which is kind of BS as before I got there a 2015 Leaf 30 kWh was charging happily and the owner was napping before he finished.

There are multiple complaints in the forum about cars breaking down on fast charging. As it makes little financial or logistical sense, I wonder why people still do so.

... and there are suspicions, at least, that it could shorten the life expectancy of your battery!

Then again on the Zoe and Leaf forums, they say the exact opposite. I think it depends on the BMS and usage as much as the speed of charging

You may have speed, but I have momentum...

I never said they did. Both sets of assertions are made without proper scientific trials, so both are opinions, but both are believed to be true of the same underlying technology :roll:

Yes ive also read somewhere that occasional chademo charging can help rebalance the battery...

I never said you did ;-)

But this is what Mitsubishi themselves say about it (on their UK website):
Quote:
Q: WILL RAPID CHARGING DAMAGE THE BATTERY?
Repeatedly performing only rapid charging may reduce the battery capacity. In day to day use normal charging is recommended. To maintain the capacity of the drive battery the vehicle should be charged using normal charging every two weeks and repeat charging near the full charge level should not be repeated.
To me, this seems more relevant then what is said on a Leaf or Zoe forum.
