    So, for anyone who's seen my car's inability to charge at 40 amps consistently at home... and how I finally caved and had been using 35 amps for the longest time... well. it tripped down to 30. Then it was at 40 automatically?

    No, this isn't a discussion about wiring, or installs, or outlets, or the 10 billion other things that affect power at my home. The problem is too many houses on too few amps... that and PP&L sucks. so... that's been beaten to death, resurrected, and killed once more for good measure.

    Anyway, for the past several charges now, it's actually held 40 amps! *gasp. so I'm 95% sure by posting this, it will kick down to 30 tonight.

    good times.

    Yes! Could it be that PP&L improved the grid in your area?
