Even my Ather charges from 0-100 or close to that in four hours. I earlier thought something’s wrong because the specified charging time is 5 hours or so. But after consultation with the staff at Indore EC, they said that their vehicles also get charged within 4 hours.
What i observed is in the mid range from 20% to 80% it charges 25% for 1 hour so 50% for 2 hours, 100% for ~4 hours. One more thing is it takes 10mins to go from 100% to Charging completed 100% i.e, dot charger’s fan turning off.
I think this is the maximum time, it mainly depends on the temperature. If i ride my Ather aggressively in the hot sun and immediately if i charge it after the ride in direct sunlight, it takes more time to charge than usual.
With some data on grid charging - added city and highway grid columns - seems all grids don’t charge at same rate. @acorreya - thanks for home charging data. Added data for highway grid - used a grid on highway (Chouk - rural area but 2.0 grid), and found that highway grid was slightly slower than city grids - first called out by @viral_champ. Chouk grid charged approx 1% every minute till 80% when it slowed more. My experience of city grids (validated at Emerald Resort - 1.0 grid at Talegaon) is they charge about 1.5% per minute. Is this difference a configuration thing or voltage thing - not sure.
