@deltasmith: about the level 1 or level 2 for PHEV. You think that Kia needs to explain their recommendation that level 2 is better than level 1 for long term battery life.
Pretty simple, Time and Temperature
- "Level 1 charging at work could also be a supplement for people driving over 40 miles per day, or even a substitute for those who canít charge at home (because they donít have a garage or fixed parking place, for example)."
- "Beyond range issues, Level 1 may not be suitable for primary charging in all cases. In extreme climates, more power may be required to maintain proper battery temperatures. In these cases, Level 2 charging may be more appropriate."
Thanks for providing that info. Neither consideration is a big factor in my personal situation, but I can see how one or both might be important to other Niro owners and I hadn't fully contemplated these considerations before.
