On route electric charging - my experiences
Arrived in Brockville after a few stops with a plan to charge up before running to Ottawa, being that Ottawa seems to be lagging in charging locations.
Electrify Canada chargers at Canadian Tire, so beautiful! 2 x 350, and 2 x 150
Myself and a Leaf owner full fail, none of them would work. I called tech support and they couldn't get it to go either.
The 150's failed to communicate every time.
The 350's would start up, but never send any power and then fault.
I then went around the corner to Petro Canada, also 350's...
Starts no issues, flying at over 150kw/h, I am going to be back to 80+ in minutes.
Less than 3 mins in it turns off, and then again at even shorter, and then even shorter the next time.
I take my 7
mins of charging and head to Ottawa, certainly not all chargers can be so crap right?
Ottawa, my hotel has dozens of free use standard plugs they offer up in the underground.
I get a notice from my phone saying you will be charged to 100% in 70+ hours, I am leaving in like 2 days so I might need to stop again on the way home.
I go to China Town, cheap 50kw/h charger in public lot, some Quebec Hydro deal, and super close to my hotel. Get there, it works, visit website to register and unlock for use.....website dead, call 24/7 support number, yeah you guessed it, dead.
My wife wants to kill me
