    First Electrify America charging experience using 350kw charger

    Thank you so much for the fantastic response. I have a 2021 on order, and plan on using the plug & charge feature. Meaning, I should not have to use any of those apps - correct? I should be able to just plug-in and it will charge… And assume that it will recognize my first three years free and...

    First Electrify America charging experience using 350kw charger

    I have not yet received delivery of my Taycan so pardon me if this is otherwise self-apparent... but until this thread I did not know that it was a different app (I.e. not the Electrify America app) for the free charging. Good to know! That said... do those charging sessions done through the...

    Best Practices for Charging?

    Curious to know how charging to 100-% all of the time will affect the battery health over the long-term. I always felt it to be a bit strange for Porsche to release a car with a buffer already in it and then ALSO ask drivers to limit their charging to 85%. So if there is already a ~10% buffer...

    Deeply disappointed with 4S -- 12V battery issue and "Electrical System Error"

    How far away are we talking? Is there a way to “test” if too close? Have a drawer we keep keys in ~15 feet from the cars (through a door/hallway)

    Charging normally in my home garage

    Noted! Great to know. Do you have a digital version of the manual you can link to? The dealer, of course, didn’t

    Charging normally in my home garage

    100% this. Having my electrician run the thickest cable possible (feasible?) from my main panel (in the basement) to the garage and run it into a new 150 Amp sub-panel in said garage (overkill? Most likely! Could easily do much less than 150 sub-panel but that's not how my mind works). YOUR...

    Charging normally in my home garage

    FYI, even if you don’t order the “Connect” version with the car (the one that costs money), the 2021 models COME WITH the new “Porsche Mobile Charger Plus” for FREE. It’s not a smart charger (ie doesn’t connect to WiFi) but I literally spoke with my dealer this morning (my 2021 is on order and...

    Does the battery get heated up by default upon charging?

    Do you think that’s a function of using a Porsche mobile charger connect (plus the updated Connect App)? Or just an update in the app itself notifying of the “charge complete” (separate from the Porsche mobile charger connect)? I.e. can anyone clarify if you still get these updates when using a...

    Out of curiosity, what charger are you using?

    Level 1 charging (in rarer instances)

    Thank you for this great overview/info! Quick question regarding the Mustart Travelmaster... did some digging... and can't find a 5-20 adapter for the Travelmaster you referenced. Here's a link to a bunch of them. Link...

    Level 1 charging (in rarer instances)

    Hi all – have my 4S+ on order with a mid-April delivery. Very excited! Getting prepared and I’m curious to know a little more about level 1 charging and the Taycan. Some info and then my question: I am having a ChargePoint installed in my garage connected to a NEMA 14-50 plug (40 amp, 9.6kwh...

    How to Charge the Porsche Taycan: Everything You Need to Know

    I recently saw this as well - it’s a “mini” version... pretty new I believe? Seems nice and compact for a trunk. I’m sure they are all fine and do the trick http://www.umc-j1772.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=17&product_id=146

    How to Charge the Porsche Taycan: Everything You Need to Know

    I plan on doing the same! Small cost of insurance is how I see it. Tesla Tap? Or what did you end up getting?

    Taycan outperforms EPA range estimate by the widest margin in Edmunds EV Range and Consumption Test

    Anyone getting over 300 miles per “tank” as this suggests? My 4S is on order and I would LOVE to get that kind of range !

    How to Charge the Porsche Taycan: Everything You Need to Know

    I was in the same boat and I too decided to keep it in my build. Better safe than sorry? My freeze date was last week so now the fun part begins! Do you have more information on the spring software update? My car is coming mid-April so maybe it’ll come with that already? Any idea on what they’re...

    2021 build - PMC vs. PMCC (connect version)

    I think we posted at the same time! See my most recent comment which was right after yours here. Found something in a press release that states it comes with. I will double-confirm with my salesman as well but think I’m all set

    2021 build - PMC vs. PMCC (connect version)

    I also just found this: https://newsroom.porsche.com/en_US/products/porsche-taycan-model-year-2021-new-features-plug-charge-functions-on-demand-head-up-display-21885.html The last paragraph of the paragraph, under “pricing and availability”, says: 2021 Taycan models will be available to order...

    2021 build - PMC vs. PMCC (connect version)

    I saw it on the link @arijaycomet posted above. In my message right after his (I forgot to quote his message!) I screenshotted and attached a photo that says “this comes with your car”. So just assumed that would be true for the Taycan. Maybe my assumption is off-base though!

    2021 build - PMC vs. PMCC (connect version)

    Thank you so much for the detailed reply. Really appreciate it! I am just a little bit confused by the charge numbers you stated for the standard PMC. I see on Porsche’s website (screenshots attached as well) that the standard PCM (that comes with the car now for 2021) charges at a max of 7.2...
