    Latest PMCC OTA update broke charging my Tesla Model Y long range…

    Team, I'm working with my local service advisor to escalate a complex problem. EV chargers - EVSE's like the PMC+/PMCC should not be vendor specific, and like USB chargers eventually you won't need one of these to be delivered with each vehicle. There is honestly no reason you shouldn't be...

    taking an EV from Denver, CO to Emeryville, CA

    EV drive trains are so smooth and powerful - taking a Diesel Locomotive (Diesel generators power a super powerful super smooth EV motor) to move the train - the scenery out of Denver, CO is spectacular and well worth the tirp…speeds vary from 15 mph to 70 mph and the train transitions between...

    A SWAG - How long will my Taycan battery last?

    Team, from history and posting this comes up a lot. How long will my Taycan battery last? The honest answer is: No one really knows - but a lot of people have a pretty good idea. from this posting - https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/another-charging-question.10726/#post-155263 - I'm...

    Confirming what I know to be true - charging a Taycan

    today I had a flawless EA experience - plug&charge (not supported on 2020 Taycan's) would've made it better - but everything worked and it was a non-terrible experience. Over the past few months I have come to experience and believe the following to be true. the _ONLY_ problem the Taycan's...

    PMCC software update this morning??

    hmmmm - was doing morning routine tasks unplugging the EV's (Cayenne Hybrid & Taycan) and both my PMCC's have software updates - version 2934… so far I've been unable to find any release notes - but I'm curious what they might be fixing (or thinking they are fixing).

    Backup EVSE recommended - ya’never know

    Team, I recently had the cord on my PMCC that was delivered with my wife’s 2021 Cayenne go bad. Something happened to the cord from the EVSE “head unit” to the vehicle - when plugged in the EVSE would not recognize it was connected to a vehicle and therefore didn’t allow any charging. Porsche...

    Options more expensive than the $460 400V/150 kW charging option…honestly wow…

    I think it’s ridiculous (my opinion - this is an “op-ed” after all) for anyone to “optimize” their build by excluding the $460 400V/150kW charging option - which has the potential to save one _ACTUAL_ personal time if they encounter or use a 400V > 50kW charger during their ownership - I...

    https://www.yahoo.com/tech/m/88f3b778-c17d-311d-9f8e-efc0a016edf2/cadillac-is-dropping-hundreds.html cadillac is shuttering dealers that don’t want to participate in the EV future - I think the writing is on the wall - less service revenue and more online purchasing means the old stealer model...

    our Taycan’s don’t have one of these parts…

    https://www.yahoo.com/autos/crucial-part-shared-fiat-panda-190200573.html but it is in Cayenne’s, 911 Turbos, GT3’s and the 918 Spyder… anyways some fun/light reading for this weekend. but there is no question EV’s are simpler as much of the ICE motor supply chain is shared parts that are no...

    Korean (and North American) CCS adapter for Tesla…hmmm

    Korea (and North America) use the proprietary Tesla connector for AC/DCFast charging - Tesla announced last year, and then delay’d a CCS adapter for Model 3 and Model Y…but now apparently it will ship this month for Korean customers… this adapter lets Model 3 and Model Y owners use CCS...

    Progress - of a sort - fast charging at race tracks…

    interesting “trend” - there is now a 16 stall Tesla supercharger install going on at Buttonwillow Raceway in California (construction in progress so we’re beyond permit stage) & an 8 stall Tesla Supercharger in permit stage for Laguna Seca, CA…now we all know this doesn’t help the Taycan “yet” -...

    Why does the TeslaTap work?

    short answer - TLDR; - because it actually doesn't do much of anything since both types of chargers (Tesla and J-1772) are fundamentally the same behind the different shaped plugs. if you pull back the curtain - the wizard behind the stage is the same as every other North American J-1772...

    A kinder, gentler, smaller, more affordable and useful road-warrior EV charging kit

    It gratifies me that my original post for the road warrior kit has been so well received by the Taycan community - it was developed in an age when EA did not exist (the core recommendation pre-date the Mission-E announcement) - Tesla Supercharger network didn't have 8-64 stalls on every corner...

    hmmm - my lovely Taycan is limited to 220 miles range - [Edit] I think it's the tires…

    Team, I’ve been driving a Taycan since July 2020 - I’ve made multiple trips in it and often drive long distances - recently my Taycan has stubbornly reported 220 miles range as it’s full charge limit - much lower than I’ve experience in the past - actual driving and battery % confirm that limit...

    here’s an idea - VW/Audi/Porsche - EA charging fix…

    VW/Audi/Porsche provides vehicles to their north american employees/dealers and such…these cars are driven by these employee’s and mangement and executives… they shold provide EV’s to all these people - disable L2 charging -and make them all charge exclusively via EA for their personal driving...

    I am watching the “sh*t show” that EA is live and in person

    after pulling up to the Vacaville, CA - 7 stall location and failing to start my charging session with 3 separate apps (each of which take 2 min or more to “fail” to start a session - industry standard network timeouts - meaning one will spend at least 6 min in futile attempt to activate a...

    Does it work? PLC adapter with the PMCC?

    Team, I’m going to explore tying in my PMCC using PLC (Power Line Communication) rather than WiFi - to that end I‘ve order the following: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I’ll be attempting to use it with a PMCC - I’ll report status…as to how this works I always prefer...

    batteries behind the curtain

    I found this article super interesting…talks about GM’s new battery tech https://apple.news/A6rWptrwpQs2JW6WIl3umIw no amount of fast charging degrades it wireless cell status (reduce wires & cost) 100% charge all the time 400V or 800V - removes ‘expensive’ 800V always “on” technology cost is...
