I charge a lot outside of my home, mostly out of convenience as there are many free chargers around my area near places that I frequent. One thing that I have noticed is that there so many charging places that are defective or damaged.. Why isn't it possible for manufacturers to make EVSE's that can hold up to the use and elements just like gas pumps do? Looks like a lot of cheap materials are used.. I saw many broken handles and yesterday, I charged at the AAA building in Tampa/FL and they have fairly new EVSE's in front and back of the building, advertised as 40 amp, 9.6 kw. So, I went to the front EVSE and the display was off and the credit card reader showed connection error (the EVSE is free but they get the credit card information to enforce a 2 hour limit). So, I just plugged in. It did work but only charged at 1.1 kw. So, I went to the EVSE in the rear of the building. Tried the left plug. Used Samsung Pay to initiate the charge and it started without problems and charging started out at 6.9 kw.. However, after 2 minutes, the speed had dropped to under 2 kw. That's when I disconnected and switched to the right plug. Initiated the charge again and this one was the only one that worked.. Charged for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 6.9 kw without an issue. 3 out of 4 plugs not working correctly. The same thing is happening in many places. How is it possible that public EVSE's are so unreliable??
