Updating wall connector firmware without data connection?


Jan 5, 2017

Hello, I installed a gen 3 wall connector in condo garage, 4th level underground. There’s no Wi-Fi or cell reception. Anyone knows a way to update the firmware without data connection? Maybe some way to download the firmware to a laptop and then connect the charger to the laptop and download it?

There doesn't seem to be any increase in functionality in these new firmware releases. The only thing coming as far as I know is power sharing between v3 wall connectors. There was a bug and sometimes a hardware problem with some older v3's that caused the unit to stop supplying power. But if you're using a recently purchased unit, you are unlikely to be affected. I would just leave it as is and not worry about it.
