So I tried bring my <500 miles tesla for a ride during the weekend and it was down to about 80kw when I arrived home and begin charging. Here's my setup:
- Model S P85
- Standard charge limit which I believe is about 85%
- Using NEMA 14-50 which is drawing 39-40A and it is stated about 24miles/hour charge
- Start charging at 12:00am
- It says it will take about 4 hours to fully charge.
Now when I wake up the next morning and about to drive to work (7:30am), it was at around 178kw. I'm like huh?! What is happening? Why is it not charging to the limit? Does anyone experience that?
Since that's plenty of range for my daily drive, I went ahead and drive it. The same night it ended about 160kw and next morning it is only charging to about 202kw. Now, I'm alarmed! I'm going to call TM Service Center and see what they say about this.
