Paragraph closes with:

" If possible, charge the vehicle with low charging power, like with a home-charging station or with the supplementary charging cable.".

The closing statement in a paragraph is what they most want to leave on your mind, to remember. You do what ever you want with your LiPo batteries. Anyone that's played with RC toys and LiPo batteries knows the drill. Quick charging generates heat, internally, in the center mass of batteries like in an e-Golf. That heat is damaging. Hence the "If Possible recommendation. It's pretty well known in LiPo chemistry batteries that exceeding a 1C charge rate is really hard on the life of LiPo chemistry batteries.

Read a whole bunch more on Battery University. Fast charging is a convenience, but it's damaging, for the convenience, the battery's life and reducing it's capacity.

My take away from the above in bold is this.... use your home charging station if at all possible. Not public charging facilities. It's that simple... recharge at home, not in public.


I don’t disagree with any of that. None of that has anything to do with the warranty though.
