My black Lightning Lariat (extended battery) is scheduled for production during the week of 23 May 2022. YES!!!

Based on what I have read on this forum, it is possible that my new truck may be delivered to my dealer in late June or early July 2022.

Questions: Does anyone know about the delivery of the 80A Charge Station Pro, which is supposed to be standard equipment with the extended battery option? Will the 80A charger accompany the truck when it is delivered to the dealer -- or -- will it ship separately to the dealer?

What about the mobile charger that comes with every Lightning model? Will it accompany the truck or be sent separately?

I am hoping the 80A charger will arrive before the truck so that I can get it installed prior to bringing the new truck home.

Thanks for your input. Cheers. Lou from Georgia.

Could have sworn someone said it is shipped to you before expected delivery......

Seems I remember that as well, but I was hoping for some fresh definitive speculation. :)
With the price for the unit now showing up at $1300, I don't see how they could. Most only have a total deposit of $600 on the truck so far. I'd be shocked if they shipped it early knowing that

Good point! Thank you. Lou C.

Another issue, how many orders will be refused by purchaser when the dealer hit's them with 5-30K ADM's and the buyer tells the dealer to take hike?

Having sent the charger 2-3 weeks prior in preparation for final delivery and installation by your electrician or Sun Run, could pose an issue, so I'd venture a guess they will seek additional assurances that final delivery will be accepted, this may involve a meeting with your selling dealer to secure additional funding and start to the final P&S being drawn up in anticipation of the trucks arrival.

If they don't do any of this, there might be a bill in the mail for the charge station regardless of your acceptance of delivery of the vehicle, might get a partial offset for the 100+500 deposits already rendered in the reservation and ordering stages, optionally returning the unboxed station to the dealer to secure a refund of your deposits.

I'm planning to complete the service line upgrades to my garage regardless of the final outcome of buying this truck, if it does come in and I and the dealer make an acceptable agreement, then I'll install the charge station at the last minute or after delivery, consolation for me, I live 2 blocks from a DCFC while waiting for the 80amp charger to be connected to my brand new 100a service in the garage.

I’m confident it will come in the truck just like it comes in the Mustang Mach E.

Also, when playing around with the order HTML trying to find my VIN, you see every code and product for the build. I know I remember seeing it listed with all of the build items. It is listed with everything that is being put in or on the truck.

If the charger stays with the truck, it simplifies the process. If the sale falls through and the truck is sold to someone else, the charger is a deliverable with the sale.

This page shows the 80Amp charger as "sold out" ! $1310 . Ford Charge Station Pro . I would like to know what the wi-fi capabilities / information available for both the 80A and 48A charges are, compared to just wi-fi to the truck via FordPass? Any references for more details beyond the page I linked to here?

can i use 30 amp line with the 80 amp charger, I understand slower charge speed but I can live with that i think have to see
It shows it'll work on any 240v volt circuit between 20 and 100 amps. I'll just be using it as a 32 amp charger on one of my two 40 amp garage circuits. Probably where my Grizzl-e is now.

the 80 amp charger has dip switches to set the maximum charge rate based on the supply circuit current rating.
my house is 1 year old and mandated to have eve power in garage, just the electrician said it was only 30 amps which sounded like a fair bit of power but as I now know likley need to run another line if I want to drive daily but I work from home so hoping 2 days charging 30 amps will work, i still have a f350 Lariat as backup

If it is a 30 amp circuit, you'll be able to charge at the 24 amp setting. This will add approximately 5.8 KW per hour of charging. Realistically if you run it down to 20% and charge to 80% like most EV users, you'll be able to add this "60 percent" of charge in about 13.5 hours at 24 amps (assumes the Extended Range 131 KW battery).

That is sufficient for most. We live with 32 amps of output for our Hyundai Ioniq 5 and my son and his wife share one 40 amp Juice Box that handles 2 full EVs (an Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6).

A reminder than an EVSE can only be run at 80% of the circuit rating aka 40 amp circuit = 32 amp charger (EVSE), etc. This is standard load rating in North America for all circuits. This is why Level 1 (120v) EVSEs included with a lot of EVs and PHEVs top out at 12 amps. They assume most will plug into a standard 15 amp plug (15 amps x 80% = 12 amps)

For a 24A charger, double the 48A times.

Anyone know if the 80Amp, and lower Amp chargers, slow the charge down after 80% charge? Or is it only when DC charging 50kW or above? Is that in control of the vehicle or the charging station?

The charge rate is controlled by the vehicle, up to the maximum allowed by the charger. A truck charging on an 80A circuit could pull less than 80A depending on where it is in the charge curve.
I don’t think we’ve seen the F150 charge curves yet. The Mach-e curve used to fall off a cliff at about 80%, reducing power to around 10-15 kW. But there are reports of higher powers up to 90% SoC after some over the air updates. Assuming the F150 curve is at least as good, you should be able to use the full 19.2 kW up to 90% SoC or more.
