I went on a little family trip last weekend and attached the GoPro to the front of the Taycan:
It's only a short driving video through some of the Belgium Ardennes. I actually had a lot more footage, but I wasn't really happy with it, so I threw it away.
I made a video of my settings:
It charges up until 85% with a minimum charge of 25%.
And it has a timer to be ready by the time I leave for work (although since Covid-19 I have been working at home ..)
Well .. I have a trip planned with my hobby project https://unrestricted.eu/ in April towards Monaco .. Heading towards Route de Turini, D2220 (Red Rock Road), Route Napoleon, etc, ...
And another one in the Belgian Ardennes in March. Might be Luxembourg if they open up the borders earlier...
So .. I got myself a GoPro Hero 9 for my birthday last Friday.
Looking for something to shoot, I created a short Taycan video. You can check it here:
I'm pretty satisfied for my first video. It's not special, just me driving in my neighbourhood with the last bits of snow on the road...
Can you use the battery in a Taycan to charge / boost another (petrol) car (with a dead battery)?
In a non-EV you can easily link another cars battery to your battery and start it like that.
Is this also possible with a Taycan? And how?
Alfen Eve Single Pro-line, 11 kW.
I used the have the Porsche Connect Charger (actually I still have it, but it's in a box), but that one doesn't work with a HEM and a transformator. I have a transformator to get to 11 Kw.
Do your Taycans also get dirty very quickly? None of my other cars seem to get so dirty .. I have a Gyeon coating on my gentian blue Taycan and it doesn't seem to help .. Even my wife made a comment about it today ..
I guess you're right. I recorded a small video to show you my settings. It confirms your analysis:
I would have expected the calculation to be more dynamic or that the requested level had priority over the calculation, but apparantly not. No worries needed :)
I can charge at 11 kW at home.
I have timer that 'hard charges' until 25% then goes to 85% by the time I generally leave for work.
However, most of the time the charge is not 85% .. Often it is 86 or 88 or ...
Does this make sense? Am I doing something wrong or do you have the same behaviour?
