  1. Volkswagen ID.4
    I have been struggling with slow charging all through winter, only getting up to between 40-50 kWh. Being told that it’s because of the temperature. Live in Chicago. Now it’s 80°, and I’m getting around 65 kWh (battery is warm, and 50% full). Whereas the Kia right next to me is getting 132 kWh...
  2. Volkswagen ID.4
    I know I am opening Pandora's box here but I was wondering what is more damaging to the battery. What they recommend is, keeping the battery around 10-80% charged I feel its more damaging to the battery if you charge it to 100% frequently as it already has more recommended threshold (i.e. 20%)...

    Just took home our 2021 AWD Pro S this weekend and charged for first time last evening with our installed Charge Point Flex station set-up with a 40 amp breaker and 32 amp charge rate. Car was at ~40% SOC, I thought I had set to charge to 80% but dealer had set to 100% and my change obviously...
  4. Volkswagen ID.4
    Hi all, looking for some advice about the best way to set up scheduled charging with a "smart" charger (EnelX Juicebox 40). I've read lots of the threads about the problems with scheduled charging in the VW Software (side note: any updates on a patch for this)? Anyone have a recommendation of...

    Hello I am pretty new to the ID.4 and have a basic question on the Heater/AC while charging the car. If i stay inside the car while charging how to keep the Heater/Ac running during the charging period. The only option i see is turning the ignition switch on. Is there any setting which i can...

  7. Volkswagen ID.4
    Has anybody had experience charging at home (L2) in cold/snowy climates? My AWD ID.4 should arrive next month (fingers crossed...), the charger's getting installed soon, and I'm wondering whether heavy snow, wet snow, frozen rain, etc., can cause problems for the charging port if it's left...
  8. Volkswagen ID.4
    Hey friends--just got my ID.4 and am loving learning the ropes! I also have a plug-in Hybrid Chrysler Pacifica that allows me to override my charging schedule programming and force an immediate charge by plugging in, unplugging and re-plugging in within 5 seconds. Does the ID.4 have any...

    Currently temperatures are in 30F in my area .In Summer 80% charge has given me 3.5 miles per KW producing range of 210+ miles. Now i charged my car to 80% and after loosing 40% battery power it has given only 41miles.I will drive until it goes under 10% and post the miles here. Attached are...
  10. Charging, Batteries, and Charging Networks
    Today we charge mainly using the level 1 charger. Plug in at night, recover 40 miles or so. Occasionally I charge using the L2 at work. Thus we are mainly in the 40-80% of battery range. My question is, is it better to charge a little every day on level 1, or charge a lot every few days on level...
  11. Tri-State USA
    Just picked up our Moonstone Gray ID.4 November 3. Live about an hour north of NYC. Moved to the ID4 from a 2019 Huyndai Kona that got re-purchased by Hyundai due to battery recall and car being out of commission for 5 months. So far we are enjoying the car. Only complaint so far is the...
  12. Charging, Batteries, and Charging Networks
    Full disclosure: At this point, I'm not really interested in the cost savings of charging overnight. I'm enrolled in the Comed time of day pricing, but after having my brand new ID 4 stop, and not re-start charging several times for unknown reasons, I just want the fricking thing to charge to...
  13. Charging, Batteries, and Charging Networks
    I been driving my VW for about 3 weeks now and use the home charger on a occasion (only between 70% and 80%) for short charging windows. I have 2 plugs in my garage at the moment and 1 the charger does not work, It has to do with the plug not being grounded. So I used my other plug that is...

    I'm new to the EV world. I have an ID.4 FE, and recently I was traveling to PA and the hotel had an "EV charger". What I found was that it was just an outlet in the parking lot, but it was not a normal 120V outlet, so my included Level 1 charging cord did me no good (I ended up finding a...
  15. Electrify America
    Electrify America. I have driven electric for over 5 years so I am not a novice to charging. The station is down most of the time and, when it's not, the charger needs to boosted from the staff to get it started. Yesterday it took 40 minutes for them to get it working. The time before, after...

  17. Volkswagen ID.3
    Hello group, I have a question regarding the DC charging restart of VW ID.3. Before charging, I put the charging expected soc to 60%. After charging finishes, I put the expected soc to 80%, but charging did not restart again. I am curious to know if vehicle supports this feature or not. Thanks!
  18. Volkswagen ID.4
    I’m just finished my second EA charge. Both times I’ve used the built in navigation to get there, drove 20+ freeway miles, and both times ambient temperatures have been in the 60s F. My first charge was at 43kw, today I’m seeing 53kw, so roughly 1/3 of the 125kw maximum rate. Is there...
  19. Volkswagen ID.4
    Hi, I have both the VW electric golf, and I just got the ID4. For the life of me I never figured out how to schedule the hours during which you want the car to charge. It seems so overly complicated to me. I don’t understand the purpose of this screen, or how to set it up. And now it appears...
