I've NO IDEA who you might be referencing here!

Nice job of documenting the situation Dave. BTW, my HCS-60 shows up tomorrow. My electrician is replacing the 50-amp breaker with a 60-amp breaker on Saturday, and the PMCC will go back in its designated carry bag in the truck! And before you ask, the circuit was originally installed with 6 AWG wire. Oh, and my electrician isn't bothering to pull the meter or power down the panel when changing the breaker! :eek:
In my experience, not even turning off the master breaker is normal. Had to leave the garage and not be nearby when the electricIans installed a metal conduit within inches of the utility side of the master breaker. They must not have seen the after effects of a plasma explosion!

I’ve read so many things my head hurts. So @daveo4EV - seems you have a lot of knowledge here. I’m having a 14-50 receptacle installed to a new 50a circuit. I think that’s the standard move. I purchased the PMCC but I’m reading it’s only going to handle a max of 32a producing far less than the 11kW charge rate. Is that correct? And if so, do I buy something else for my garage wall charger needs and use the PMCC as my mobile? Is the PMCC as good as the Tesla Gen2 mobile charger? I guess my simple question is what’s the ideal set up in the garage and when mobile? Thanks!
I also charged at ~11kW on L2. I just had a ChargePoint flex hardwire installed today on a 60A circuit - car is pulling 11kW (10.86 iirc) on RHS socket - didn’t try LHS. I opted not to use my fancy Porsche charger as the flex is outside and now a permanent house fixture.

This is in California - 60A circuit to sustain 48A per code, IIRC.

I’m pleased I have the option but I don’t plan on home charging much as there is an EA 150kW setup 2 miles from home, and conveniently close to Starbucks :)
