    It must be 16A because that's exactly what I get with my L2 EVSE cable. And my meter says it's pulling 16 amps. Or more like 15.98 or so. Very nice of them to do that.

    It would be nicer if they told customers instead of trying to sell us another power supply! lol

    I can bring my 2017 Prime to full charge in ten minutes. (Of course, that's after driving two miles to the supermarket and back.)

    IIRC, the motor won’t even start (ICE or electric) as long as the charger is plugged into the vehicle. Just the accessories come on and then shut off after a certain amount of time automatically. At least on my 2020.

    I charge mine after everytime I drive it and get back home unless I only went like 5 or less miles. It’s become habit. The moment I get out of the car before I even walk inside I hook the charger up, it’s what it’s for after all.

    Many of my trips for work related things are 40-80 miles away, so I take whatever electric miles I can get. In the summer I consistently get 33-35 miles on the dash read out on a full charge- even though I know some of you said that’s really just a “guess o-meter” and you are likely right. At 28k miles, I had the car at Toyota for routine service and they said the traction battery was at 91% life left - no idea if that’s good or bad.

    See pic below - 34.3 miles from a charge - typical of spring and summer but I know it’s not necessarily accurate.
