  1. Volkswagen ID.4
    Just picked up our new ID4 yesterday. We will be installing a Level 2 charger at our home next week. I stopped at a local shopping center and tried their lower voltage Level 2 charger. Seemed to work fine. Then, I figured we should learn how to use the Level 1 cable that came with the car, just...
  2. Charging, Batteries, and Charging Networks
    Hi everyone, Had our VD ID4 since April 22 and was charging fine scheduled or not but now if we plug the car in before the charging session it will only charge at 3kwh when the session starts. If you unplug and plug back in within the schedule time it's fine- goes up to 7kwh as it should. If...

    I brought home my 2022 ID4 last Saturday 11/26, in Minnesota. I'm feeling as though the manufacturer and dealership could have offered a charging specific commonly asked questions info page to review. Some of my issues are not know what questions to ask--I know this is on me to do research...
  4. Charging, Batteries, and Charging Networks
    If I drive few miles and use only 10% of battery charge per day, what’s the best charging strategy? I’ve been charging every five days or so, letting it run down to ~30% and then charging it up to 80%. But can I increase the longevity of my battery by taking a different approach - for example...
  5. Volkswagen ID.4
    Hi, I got my ID4 for a week now. I used type 2 charger station at work to charge my ID4 from 13% to 80% limit but I was surprised it was charged upto 88%! Is that normal? This is my second charge for the car, the first time I charged it up to 90% which was fine until later same day before...

    So I am waiting to take delivery of my ID.4 so in the meanwhile I am looking for chargers. What are some of the chargers you guys have installed inside of your homes? Currently I am looking at the Enel X JuiceBox 40 because I have found that the Electrify America chargers aren't that...
  7. Electrify America
    Can anyone still use Plug and Charge? I got my ID4 on 7/10 and when I was setting up the EA account there was a Plug and Charge option. It gave me an error message when I tried to activate that. Today I called EA and they said Plug and Charge will be unavailable until later this year. It's...
  8. Volkswagen ID.4
    Curious if anyone with a 2022 ID.4 has some real-world charging data. There is a post over on reddit that claims to be getting ~170 kW charging, which is a lot higher than I expected. I'm curious if this is a fluke, or something that VW has been underselling. Can anyone with a 2022 confirm what...

    I have an Electrify Home and an ID.4 updated to software version 3.1. So far I've charged it in off-peak hours daily via the Electrify Home’s scheduled charging and it works really well. I'm willing to give the ID.4’s scheduled charging a try, but I wonder if there's any benefit to using that...

    Hi all! Hopefully picking up from the dealer this evening and have a question for down the road... I have access to 7 free L2 chargers (11 total plugs) less than 2 miles from my house and an EA about 9-10 miles away. With access to all of that free charging, do you think it is necessary to have...

  12. Volkswagen ID.4
    If you schedule your EVSE, it will kill power at a certain time that the car's computer doesn't know. Will that sudden stop of power not be hard on the battery over time? We have a Flo X5 and we wanted to use the ID4's scheduling. But. Well. I don't need to elaborate on why we aren't, haha.
  13. Volkswagen ID.4
    We've had our Pro S since December, but have really only driven local area – a role in which the car performs magnificently. Just returned from the first longer road trip: Pensacola to Rockville, MD, and back. Some observations: Charging: The EA network is sufficiently dense along the I-85/95...

    Hello, Can someone with a similar set up or insight help me with configuring scheduled charging? I have off peak hours starting 8pm on weekdays, but weekends are off peak all day. I couldn't figure out to how to have two different charge schedules, so my one schedule worked OK on weekdays, but...

    Good news for those in charging deserts possibly. Here is the article
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  19. 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...
