15 metre ordered for my leaf, should hopefully be able to charge with no problems
Mine does about the same thing. It ramps down a few tenths of an amp and then jumps back up. It does that until ~98% SOC and then starts ramping down.Where did this info come from ?
It doesn't make any sense, where are you, perhaps try the car on a ZCW unit nearby.
As soon as my contactor fires the unit pulls the full load for hours until ramping down on a 100% charge
So is this a 16 Amp charger or not? If the charger only works when the vehicle draws 10-13 Amps it doesn't sound like a 16 Amp capable unit. And if the MCB or RCD are being overloaded, are they actually tripping? They can't reset themselves.This is what Rolec came up with ?
They have had some issue with the pods because the car manufacturers have upgraded the intake charge to the maximum amount the unit would handle in short bursts.
i.e. A 16 amp car unit used to start with a 16 amp short burst of load at the start of a charge, then ramps down to between 10 and 13 amps for the remainder of the charge, thus giving the unit time to cool and carry on with the charge and have no thermal effects.
New car units start with a 16 amp load and continue with this load over the charge period (4 hours) in this time the charger unit has no time to cool and the thermal effect is to high for the RCD or Breaker and is causing them to have thermal overloading and thus causing the charger to trip under fault
And that was two week ago
I've got an ammeter in my charger and Leafspy. My January 2014 built car stays at full power until about 98% SOC.Perhaps this only affects a model year 2015 LEAF in combination with the Rolec wall pod.
