I am new here, I have my car since January bought from a Mitsubishi dealer, used car.
Lots of technical words here on the forum...I am a bit lost.
I had no home charging possibility so I charge it at the fast charge stations at the moment, 3 times so far. I noticed that the battery drains very fast, double fast actually with no AC or lights on.
When I connect the charging cable it shows that it starts to charge from 25% but my battery is completely empty and goes only to 80% and stops charging. So theoretically I have only a 55% charged battery. I thought that this car can run on a battery for about 28 miles. After I charge my battery it shows that I can run 16 miles. I drive about 5-7 miles (in the city, not highway) and it's empty.
I wrote to the dealer and he keeps telling me that after I have my home charging cable (normal power socket, as I have no driveway) the battery will charge better. The battery is consuming its power too fast! How a cable will change the faultiness of the battery?
I asked for a battery check but I had no answer.
Please advise, but ... not too many technical explanations as is Chinese for me (or should I say Japanese? )
