I'd be very interested in charging a Taycan from a 20 amp 120 volt source - NEMA 5-20 plug - rather than the normal NEMA 5-15 plug. The reason I ask is for some reason Chevy limits their Bolt's to 12 amps even when provided with a. 120V/16 amp EVSE (the kind plugged into a NEMA 5-20 plug).

Simply as a data point it would interesting to me if the Taycan will charge at 1.92 kW when plugged into an appropriate EVSE - or does it limit itself to 1.44 kW like the Chevy Bolt

again - just my curiosity - I don't recommend charging any EV's from a 120V/L1 charging source - way tooo slow.
