From Plug and Play EV.
In freezing weather, we headed out to test the latest generation of Electrify America chargers in Massachusetts. Full video here of all charger tests here: https://youtu.be/Pdfbm7u8Nv4
These are the new SK Signet stations, all of which have worked for us on six separate visits. But with temperatures hovering at or below 10 degrees Fahrenheit and the wind chill taking them lower, question marks have been raised about minimum operating temperature.
We tried three of the four (including previous generation Signet), with a Bolt EV successfully charging on number 2, raising questions as to whether extreme weather limitations are down to a different manufacturer’s hardware (BTC Power) or needing to see temps far below the norm for this area to truly fail. A full video breaking down the differences and potential scenarios will follow.
