I know this isn't especially helpful, but to echo comments above, I've never seen anything much over 40kW rate on any rapid, ever. Sure, I only use them a handful of times a year and I'm never in a hurry, but from the ~10% I tend to arrive to the ~90% I tend to leave with, it's in the 40kW-25kW range. Unless mine has always been similarly broken, I've assumed that this is the reality of the 60kW max rate advertised?

Up in sunny cumbria went in the hidden menu to see if I could see any faults… non apparent anyway charged at slow rate to get home and it disappeared.

Cuz has a remapping business so will plug in if fault reappears….

And yes I’ve asked no maps for the e yet 😛
See if he can remove the speed limiter :D

At around 60% it dropped all the way down to 26kW, then crawled back up to 30kW. It stayed there for good 10 minutes, but at around 78% charge it crashed down to 20kW and has remained there since. The charge curve is never usually quite this mediocre. It's serviceable, but not as 'rapid' as normal. Regaining 50% charge in 26 minutes isn't terrible by any means, I'm just unnerved by how inconsistent the speeds are.
Well, the speeds aren't inconsistant at all, and you pretty much got the charge speeds that you are supposed to get according to the official charge curve. If the battery is a little bit too cold, the speeds might be a little lower:

10%: 50 kW
20%: 40 kW
40%: 30 kW
70%: 20 kW
90%: 10 kW
