this quote is somewhat confusing

“We plugged in six times over two days, noting an average remaining range of 63 miles, 225 miles burned, and a charge state of 36 percent at the time of each stop.”

real world range of 225 + 63 = 288??
At highway speeds, this seems reasonable.

You are assuming they went to 100% I doubt they did as the last 10% takes a long time. My guess is they stopped at around 90% which if true would be pretty good.

288 seems like good real world range, considering 288/315 is 91% meaning 9% for AT tires. Also they had lots of gear and weight. This power draw is probably negligible, but they do show an ARB fridge in the bed, I assume this is plugged into the bed 120v outlets. 😝

And that is assuming they charged to 100, which they almost definitely did not do.

That sounds about right based on the EPA ratings and Rivian stating that 20s would reduce max range (314 miles) about 10-15%.

It's confusing because none of the equivalent full numbers align. There's so much kissing context here that you can't gethch meaningful from it. Did they fully charge every time? Was the 225 after charging to 80% which charging profile were they using? I'm assuming they used an arithmetic average. Which very way may not be the right average to use. Did they have an outliers? 63 miles at 36% would be a bit concerning if I had any belief that was a repeatable number. Were they pushing it hard? Lolly gagging along the coast? Who knows. there's a reason people do loop style constant speed tests, and it's not because they are fun to do.

And why in the world did they think they needed to stop at a level 2 charger between Portland and LA? Did they go wayyy off route from I-5?

PLUS they drove 908 miles and plugged In 6 times. How do you average 225 miles between charges with those two numbers? Are they saying they "spent" 225 miles of energy (I'm literally cringing as I type that) on average but covered 130 or 151 miles on average? How did this word salad make it through their editor?

How was charging? They mentioned a slow EA charger, and a L2 charger. About the other experiences?
