CHAdeMO Association reported 1,306 CHAdeMO chargers in the U.S. as of 2015.10.05.

That's some 500 more than in the report from early 2015.

"The number of CHAdeMO DC Quick chargers installed up to today is 9131.

-- (Japan 5418 Europe 2352 USA 1306 Others 55) last update 2015.10.05"

The pace of growth is significantly slower compared to the roughly 1,000 new chargers in Europe over the same period (over 2,350 total).

Maybe CHAdeMO Association doesn't have all the data and there are more CHAdeMO in the U.S.?

CHAdeMO fast charging standard is backed in the US mainly by Nissan, and to a lesser degree by Kia and Mitsubishi. Power output typically is between 20 and 60 kW (most CHAdeMOs are probably 40-50 kW).
