New Electrify America Chargers Tested in Freezing Winter Temperatures (Quick Charge)

From Plug and Play EV.

With all the fuss about freezing temperatures seizing up Electrify America’s new chargers, most of which have only been in the ground for a month or two, we had to venture out before Christmas shopping to see for ourselves.

With temperatures dropping to somewhere between 6 to 10°F (-12 to -14°C) in Massachusetts, this wasn’t the extreme cold that some regions in the US saw this past week but it was representative of the semi-regular lows that most charging corridors in the Northeast will see this winter.

So, how did the new Electrify America fourth gen. Signet chargers in Chicopee, MA hold up?
