I understand the reason, but there was no communication about this at all. Nothing in the release notes.I spoke to the technical team in Tesla UK (Spain is supported from London) and they said it has been reduced temporarily but an upcoming firmware release will restore the charge current previously seen. It may have been to check some part of the charge system.
Kind of pisses me off that there was 0 communication about this, not by e-mail or even in the release notes. We simply had to find out AFTER we installed the firmware.So here's the explanation we got.
There is a problem with some charge point that might actually deliver more than the rate power and could damage the onbaord charger. So as a preventive measure, Tesla decided to reduce the charging power until they manage to fix that issue in a new firmware upgrade.
They said a few weeks, but you in Tesla language that can easily mean a month or 2.
+1! That is what Release Notes are for. Not just to deliver "good news", but also the, well, not-so-good.Kind of pisses me off that there was 0 communication about this, not by e-mail or even in the release notes. We simply had to find out AFTER we installed the firmware.
I'm OK with that fact that they limited it because they found a bug, but please tell me about it.
With a single-charger I'd be more angry since you are limited to 13A.
I'm on 1.45.32 (5.6) and I'm limited.1.45.45 here, charging at 3x13A max (single charger).
Fine with me, my house can do 3x25A max
Same here. On 5.8 since last evening and still limited. I am going to count to the proverbial 10 and then contact Tesla by phone. I sent an email on this subject last week which they completely ignored. Second time that happened, btw, I think the euservice mail account is tied to a waste bin and no one actually reads that.Nope
I'm on 5.8 (1.49.24) and I'm still limited to 3x26A instead of 3x32A.
What I did notice is that when not plugged in you can now set the charge limit to 80A instead of 96A.
The 80A is the single-phase capability of the European Model S, so that's a slight change but doesn't change anything for us.
So with 5.8 you are still limited to 17.9kW charging instead of 22kW.
