    Ok, not really a question I’m expecting an answer for, but I’ll ask it anyway.

    Recently a place near where I work installed some L2 legrand chargers. I went to try them out, and my X detects a grounding/cabling issue. The owners/operators are aware of the issue, but don’t know when it’ll get solved.

    Is there a solution or idea I can pitch to them to try and fix this? It’d be REALLY handy to have those chargers working properly instead only partly working.
    (They should put out 200v @ 30 amps, but only get 175v @ 22 amps)

    I'd suggest you'll have a better chance at finding an answer if you post in a forum for charging related issues: Model X: Battery & Charging

    It’s not just my X though. A couple Leafs and some other EVs have had the same problem.

    I have my own idea/theory (I’m an electronics technologist by trade), but I want to see if anyone here has any thoughts or ideas.

    I mean, I’ve had the same issue at Costco of Laval. It indicated that there was something wrong with the wiring and I ended getting that exact speed. The system indicates a fault so it slows down. Is it at Dalhousie Sexton?
