I would like to see the charger arrive couple weeks early also. WiFi configured and ready for charging. Will see.
That is good news. That was my understanding from the beginning of the ordering process. Once you order the truck, you have committed yourself in getting it.Got an email from Ford Canada this morning that my truck will be coming soon and a link to order the charge station pro. I went to the link and ordered the charger. Free and free shipping. Received a confirmation email saying they would notify me when it ships. I still don't have an exact build date. The current info on build is the week of June 20th. Lariat ER
Maybe how is done in Canada. I like it.!!!No Sun Run install where I am. The email from Ford Canada said they would ship the charger and I could have it installed by one of there installers or find someone myself, which I will do>
I read from a member that he programed his wallbox to draw 64amps instead of 80amps.I was thinking about this today......is there anyone successfully using this charger at 80 amps with out amber lights, overheating, stopping/restarting charging, etc?
Although unsuccessful in connecting with my WiFi, irregardless how long I wait, I still get the warning of " not recognizing the password ".Just a couple of notes from my experience with the Ford Charge Station Pro.
I did connect successfully to my home Wi-Fi through the FCSP installation app, but it took my iPhone quite a while to connect. It sat thinking for a long time. Maybe one to two minutes?
I have the FCSP connected to a 100 Amp circuit and the dip switch set to the factory position 7. My FordPass app was also left at the default 80 Amps. The first two times I used the charger it had multiple starts and stops before finally completing the charge. The charger's software version from the factory was a lot of numbers, but 64 is the key number.
In the FordPass app I set the charge rate to 64 Amps, and did not touch the dip switch. My next three or four charges were all successful with no interruptions. One note, while charging at 64 Amps there was an amber square that lit up next to the blue pulsating light that indicated it was charging at a reduced rate.
Each day I kept checking for an update to the chargers software version. I had read that the most recent is 68. About five days after installation the charger updated itself to the latest version of 68.
In the FordPass app I bumped up the charging speed to 80 Amps. I have had four successful charges at that speed since the updated software. According to my math it's charging at about 18kW. I'm seeing about 12% charge per hour. For example last night it charged for 31.5 KWH and took 1 hour and 45 minutes to do it.
The cord does get quite warm to the touch while charging, but not so hot that I can't grasp it firmly in my hand.
Then I have to get with the Siemens people again to find out what we will do next.The Nest WiFi broadcasts and uses both frequencies, I think they even took away the users ability to turn one or the other off:
How Nest Wifi and Google Wifi 2.4, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz bands work - Google Nest HelpGoogle Nest Wifi and Google Wifi devices keep it simple by automatically directing your devices to use the band that gives them the best Wi-Fi. Your Nest Wifi or Google Wifi network uses the same namsupport.google.com
More info to know. Now how I am going to get my Pixel 6 to cooperate with 2.4Ghz.Also remember that the device doing the setup (such as a your smartphone) must also be on the 2.4ghz band during the setup.
