    If I understand correctly, the cars were set to only go to 60A by default and we had to turn it up to 80A.

    Are we able to keep the charge rate at 80A yet (with the new fuses)?

    5.0 has reset the default to 80 amps. If you have not installed the new fuses or do not have one of the newer units you should turn it down to 60 as recommended until you do.

    Yes, 5.0 removes the "60A shuffle" that constantly resets anything > 60A to 60A. Plug in, if you charged at 80A before, it'll charge at 80A each time.
