Battery charging efficiency

Loving the smart electric drive after a year and a half of driving it!Becsuse i have to pay something for charging current where i work and live (small monthly fee), i wondered about the actual efficuency of the charging. The smart has a 17.6kW battery but how many kW hours does it actually need to become charged? Tesla claims charging efficiency in the low 90 percentages, and i would expect the smart to be in the same area. Any smart ED experts here that can weigh in on this?I charge it mostly…See More

"The replacement 110V charger came in very quickly, so no complaints there! Rather than simply exchange it, the dealership insisted on taking the car in and doing something back in the shop - probably confirming the performance of the new charger.…"

Mark Williams replied to sUSAi Admin's discussion Are You Electricurious?
"For my own experience, i like my smart ED. Yes, more range would be welcome and less stuff on the windshield (bug mirror and the sendor) would be an improvement. But i love the feel of electric drive and this has been an excellent city car for me!"
