Issue with Kilcullen 50 Kw DC Charger

    I plugged in today and again observed 26 Kw on the charger power meter on the bottom of the side of the charger.

    It does however fluctuate quite a bit anywhere from 26-48 Kw but mostly stays around 26 Kw. This is not normal charging the i3 94 Ah it does not fluctuate like this. The battery temp was 23 Deg C and at this temp should be getting max power.

    Here's the strange bit, when I swipe my access card it goes to full charge rate of 48 Kw while the screen is active when it goes back to standby the power goes back down to 26 Kw. I repeated this 5 or 6 times with exactly the same result while there was a car charging on the 150 Kw and when there was no car charging at the 150 Kw the result was the same. Incredibly strange.

    I would like is someone could verify this is happening to them also and report it to the ESB as many People as possible because that charger has been like that for a very long time and it will add significant time to a charge.

    The display can be difficult to read in the Sun and it's the left meter, the one on the right is for AC.

    I'm passing that way on Friday. If I remember I'll plug in and check it out.
