Charging starts at 16A

Got my EO charger installed Friday and very nice it is to. One problem however is that the charging always starts at 16A. I can go to the dashboard and change it to 32A no problem but that's not where it starts. Is there a way to save the higher amps setting?

Thanks!

I'm having endless issues with my home charger install, but I have noticed that the one I have now (EVBox Elvi) starts at 6A before ramping up. I think it's quite normal, so long as it goes to 32A and stays there (which the Elvi isn't - it keeps throttling back after a few hours).

My EO also sometimes stops at 16A. Also, sometimes the car shows a 16A limit. No very clear reason. Yesterday I started the charger 1.5 hours before going out, found it was charging at 16A, and would take 3 hours to hit my 80% limit. Stopped charger on App, waited 5 seconds, restarted it, and it ramped up to 32A, where it stayed. Makes no sense to me. Anyone have advice how to make it charge at 32A reliably?

If its of any help, when I had my charger installed and first loaded the controlling app (for the charger) it would only charge at 17amps for some reason. Eventually I removed the app from my phone and reinstalled it and it immediately and continuously charged at 32amp from that moment on. :cool:

I've been using a Tesla Wall charger at home for over three years now on a Model S. When I open charging on the screen it always shows as 16A, but Teslafi and charging result indicate that it has charged at 32A.
