Back in the day, when my Blink! charger had some actual intelligence, it would upload my charging activity to Blink's servers and I could get a report on how much power was used for every charge.
The overnight charge, from zero to 50 miles indicated range, would very consistently average 19 KWH. I have the data if you like to see it, but it was extremely consistent over the 14 months the charger was reporting data. The actual energy stored in the Karma's battery was 17KWH (85% of 20KWH). The rest was wasted as heat and used to run the machinery that is involved in the charging process, including cooling pumps, etc.
