Note: Anything you read or hear about DC quick charger taking 20 mins. to 80% charge…these are commercial chargers that are yet to be installed anywhere, using a huge SAE combo connector, not available for home charging. (IMO, they are trying to set a standard outside of Tesla superchargers, which, I think, all would be better off licensing from Tesla, as Tesla has a head start and more on the way, but, who am I to make sense?) So, looks like multiple charging standards abound, sucks for consumers again.
