Ever see a charge like this? This was at a public Chargepoint station that I have used many times and never seen the charge throttle back like this. Usually charges right around 6kW from start until approaching near full. In this case, the charge rate dropped from 6kW to about 4.25kW very early in the charge cycle, while SOC was still maybe only 30 percent. The car had been parked outside for about 4 hours at temps in the mid-teens before I started the charge. I would expect the charge to cut back if the battery was very hot or in severe cold (sub-zero), but not at fairly moderate winter temps like this. I tried stopping and restarting the charge, but it restarted back up at 4.25kW until complete. In total took about 10kWh, which is a typical charge for me, but of course took slightly longer - about 2.5 hours instead of the usual 2 hours. Drive home in EV mode was completely normal and charging at home also seemed normal, although at home I only have a 16A L2 and no way to measure the charge power.
