New Electrify America Chargers Tested in Freezing Winter Temperatures (Quick Charge # 4)

From Plug and Play EV.

With all the fuss about freezing temperatures seizing up Electrify America’s new chargers, most of which have only been in the ground for a month or two, we had to venture out before Christmas shopping to see for ourselves.

With temperatures dropping to somewhere between 6 to 10°F (-12 to -14°C) in Massachusetts, this wasn’t the extreme cold that some regions in the US saw this past week but it was representative of the semi-regular lows that most charging corridors in the Northeast will see this winter.

So, how did the new Electrify America fourth gen. Signet chargers in Chicopee, MA hold up?
