How much do the numbers change when you charge to a higher percentage? Or is there a economy/performance gain at 70-80% ?

Efficiency won't change based on state of charge really. The Bolt has a slow 54 kW charging capability under ideal conditions, and after 50% state of charge tapers even slower. Beyond 80% of charge the Bolt is practically trickle charging, so it's not worth the time to go beyond that.

Duh. Called adsorption rate and not really efficient time wise. I was wondering if arriving at the next station with more or less charge affected that stop more noticeably other than linearly of charge time. There is a second knee in the adsorption area where current falls further and the charge time extends again. This is where I usually stop my charge since it takes an hour to gain only one more resting volt (1 mile extra range)
