Charging the X with the Lectron CCS adaptor

After updating my recently acquired Lectron CCS adaptor (also known as a SETEC CCS adaptor) to firmware V150 (a hassle to do, since I do not own a Windows computer and have to borrow one) I was able to successfully charge my Model X today for the first time at a BC Hydro charging station in North Vancouver, BC, Canada.

My X is on V2020.48.37.2. I’m wondering if there are other X owners with the latest Tesla software using that adaptor and if they have had any issues. There are several threads on TMC in various forums discussing issues with the adaptor when used with the Model 3, depending on which Tesla software version they are on and which adaptor firmware version they are using.

I just ordered for our 2019 X, how many kw were you getting on yours and what year is your X? I heard you can get 70-80kw only on older an model X.

If you search TMC for “SETEC” you will find a few threads about it. My understanding is that it works by emulating the CHADdeMO protocol and is limited to 50kW. When I tested mine, my battery was already at about 80% and I got 34kW. My X is a 2017. It can charge at 120kW (if memory serves) on a DC fast charger that can deliver that much, like a Supercharger.

I heard in this forum that the new firmware upgrades have locked out the Sertec CCS charger , so it may not work if you update the sw. I dont own one so I cannot confirm this.
