2021 Mustang Mach E First Edition, 2016 Nissan Leaf, 2003 Toyota Tacoma, F-150 Lightning Lariat ER
Ford is sticking with the same architecture for the Mach E, eTransit, and Lightning. All are in the 400V range and nominally have a 150kW maximum charging rate.Does anyone know the pack voltage for the Lightning? The Mach-e is 450V. Wondering if they stepped up to 600 or 800V in the Lightning. Also wondering what the DCFC voltage and max current are.
In regards to the app, it is not great. I have it set to 80% and last night it charged to 100% after I stopped it when I realized it was going to 100%. So their preference would be nice if it actually followed what you set.Overnight Charging
You can increase the longevity and performance of your high voltage battery by using the charge scheduling and departure and comfort settings on your touchscreen or in the FordPass app. With Charge Scheduling you can improve the high voltage battery's longevity by delaying the start of charging and setting a maximum charging limit. It is recommended to set your preferred charging times to be at least 2-3 hours after your typical plug in time. This allows the battery to cool before charging begins.
Additionally, setting the maximum charge level to be less than 100% for everyday usage reduces strain on the battery. You can improve driving range and performance by scheduling departure times and cabin comfort level with the Departure and Comfort feature. This will not only warm or cool the cabin but also
condition the battery to ensure best driving range and performance by the set departure time.
The Mach E often loses or ignores its charging limit right after getting an over the site update. Did yours just get an update?In regards to the app, it is not great. I have it set to 80% and last night it charged to 100% after I stopped it when I realized it was going to 100%. So their preference would be nice if it actually followed what you set.
How would I determine that? VIN check of some kind?Is yours a job 1 car? If so they are getting a large series of OTAs.
Job 1: through July 7, 2021. It's the series of Power Ups leading to Blue Cruise.How would I determine that? VIN check of some kind?
but in the end, my point is, if the battery needs to be taken care of and you do what your supposed to - it is very frustrating when those constraints aren't absolute and get overwritten.
In most cases the user preferences aren't being over-written, they being ignored once.Hope they fix this kind of stuff soon. No excuses for writing over user preferences.
You can find the full list of exiting PowerUps atOk, then mine falls into that category.
I get that, but there is no excuse for user settings to be ignored or overwritten. Don't cover for Ford. They have to up this game.In most cases the user preferences aren't being over-written, they being ignored once.
An occasional 100% charge at L1/L2 causes no significant harm to the battery, especially if the car is driven that day. The only real concern is sitting long-term at 100%.
I have over 40 sessions logged on Electrify America in GA, TN, IN, IL, and WI, and have never had to wait for a charger. YMMV in areas with more EVs like the West Coast.With the Lightning being my first EV, waiting to charge at a charging hub is on my anxiety / annoyance list.. Especially on road trips...
