J1772 is for level 1 and 2. The chademo plug is for a fast charger that you pay for by the hour, usually at a highway charging station.
Wow, mine consistently charges from 0 to 100% in 6 hours, 30 Amp, 240VMy 2023 PHEV takes about 8 hours for full charge from 30amp 240volt level 2 charger installed in my garage
I purchased the Grizle, adjustable 240V 16-40 amp charger. Mine's set at 32amps, charges 0-100% in 6 hours consistentlyCan you tell us please what level 2 charger you purchased and are you happy with that charger. Maybe you can post here web link for charger. I am looking to buy one but not sure for Mitsubishi OEM requirements, all I can see says 16 amp.
15 amps at 240V is about 5.5 hours, so with the slower draw to fill the last 20% of the battery 6 hours is the fastest you will get on the Outlander PHEV on a AC current. If the PHEV allowed a 32amp draw at 7.7kw or even 6.6kw like in the top trim RAV4 PRIME you'd be looking about 3 hours to fill 20kw. Keep in mind for li-ion batteries continually filling it to 100% will reduce its longevity. Most recommend charging to about 50-60% to increase battery life.I purchased the Grizle, adjustable 240V 16-40 amp charger. Mine's set at 32amps, charges 0-100% in 6 hours consistently
I just got mine (2023 Outlander PHEV) and I do have NEMA 14-30 in my garage. I thought for level 2, I need 40A circuit in order to use 240V 32A charger. I mean it will constantly trip 30A breaker, but does not sound like it will trip, instead it reduce the amperage if suppy is limited or shared with other stuff. It is true that car tells me it will take 22 hours but in reality only 14 or 15 hours. It seems slow down at end too.I received yesterday level 2 charger / 25 ft extension NEMA cord 14-30 / adapter 14-30 to 14-50 purchased on Canadian Amazon
I plugged it yesterday in laundry room outlet for test purpose before another 10ft extension cord and automatic power switch arrives from US Amazon next week.
What I can say it did work nicely.
For example car was plugged with original Mitsubishi level 1 charger and was showing 15 hours and 30 minutes on car display before fully charged, than I unplugged level 1 and plugged new level 2 ( switched on 16 amp ) connected with ext.cord and adapter. Charger display was showing 3.5 KWH charging speed and car display showed 6 hrs until fully charged.
I was very happy I because I made this decision to do it.
Still waiting to receive automatic switch and another ext.cord to do final setting.
It will cost me about $1,000 CAD all installed.
I will update you with pictures when all installed and how it works.
Thanks, for info, but does anywhere mention this in the manual? So buying 32A charger is waste of money compare to 240V 20A or even 15A. I am sure higher the Amps will cost more accordingly. I guess 240V16A will take 6 to 7 hours, but better than 14 hours even it is not completely empty battery. I am debating myself if I should put out money for 240V charger or I should continue 120V came with Outlander. It is very funny that in Japan they supply with 200V cord with Outlander, I downloaded Japanese instruction.With a plug adaptor you could use your 32A L2 charger with that existing 14-30 in your garage, because the Outlander will never pull (is not physically capable of using) more than 16-ish amps. Nowhere near the 24A safe limit on that 30A circuit.
BUT, don't try to charge any other car, bc it would probably want all 32A and you'd trip a breaker or burn your house down.
But don’t forget, you have the previous model, a PHEV model with a 12 kWh battery. That’s why it’s faster on level 1 to charge it full. My PHEV 2023 will definitely need about 12 h to charge up to full the 20 kWh battery. I decided to get a level 2 charger so that I can gain a few extra km when coming back for lunch.2020 phev here, reg 15 amp house plug. charger set at 12 amp full charge in 6 hours
Exactly! Anything more than 15/16A is wasted on this specific car. But like @JohnMitsu some ppl future-proof by spending more now on a faster charger, for a future car, or friends with EVs visiting, etc.So buying 32A charger is waste of money compare to 240V 20A or even 15A. I am sure higher the Amps will cost more accordingly.
Europe/Japan (anywhere with 220V standard) wins because they automatically get 2x charge speed compared to NA! I mentioned this earlier, haven't heard of anyone trying...but it's possible the Mitsu-included L1 charger is dual-voltage (like almost every phone/laptop charging block). The L1 charger included with my Bolt is dual-voltage (although not labeled as such!), and when supplied with 240V (via plug adaptor) it provides 2.8kw instead of 1.4kw, magic! Don't try it though, it could blow it up the Mitsubishi charger...It is very funny that in Japan they supply with 200V cord
I think you're right, the slower charge will be nicer for the battery and could extend its life a little. 1.4kw vs 3.6kw probably not a huge difference, but 7.6kw yeah (probably why Mitsu skipped it), and definitely avoid DCFC (up to 40kw) as much as possible.once in a while, I do use the level 1 charger supplied By Mitsubishi to give a slower amp charge… Honestly, I have no real idea, but I guess it might be better to do so for the battery longevity.
For that Grizzl-E, if it comes with a 14-50 plug, then ideally you'd want the appropriate outlet installed (rated for 50A, on a 50A circuit) to be safe. In that case, you don't need to "set" the charger to anything, and it would be capable of safely delivering up to 40A (10kw) to any car. However your Outlander will never "ask" for more than about 3.6kw (16A).So the max amps for my 2023 PHEV is 16A? So let's say I wanted to buy a Grizzl-E charger. Would I just need to pre-set it to 16A, but I would still need a 240V plug NEMA 14-50R for the actual charger box?
J1772, CHAdeMO is level 3Question for everyone ? Do I need to get the j21772 plug for outlander for level 2 or CHAdeMO?
