Re: Schneider EVSE

I have some more news on the intermittent charging issue:

Schneider now has a fix and is working out the details on how to roll it out. As I get more information about this I'll be sure to let you know.

Re: Schneider EVSE

The problem with the Schneider is not all that significant. You just can't turn your back on it after plugging in. You might come back later and be surprised to have gotten no charge; that's happened to me a couple of times.

I think it is still be best deal around and would like to have another. If they want me to send mine back for "the fix", I will suggest that they first sell me another one at an attractive price.

Good news! I haven't had any problems yet but I'm glad someone is working on making sure it's completely reliable.

Re: Schneider EVSE

Thanks for working on this. Never had a issue with the delayed charge option on the EVSE. I have just pressed the charge timer override button in the car if it fails to start charging otherwise. I don't use the charge timers on the car.

Agreed. My best friend just ordered a Leaf himself and if he doesn't get in on the EV Project he's going to get a Schneider.

I received an email July 12 telling me that a fix was in the works. Nothing since.

What is "spx"?

Ditto. I was planning on doing another ping on Tuesday to find out what is up.

Re: Schneider EVSE

Got a phone call today - here's what I know:
  • The fix and delivery of that fix has been figured out
  • The fix is a only a firmware update, no hardware changes.
  • Some of the delay was that this is a UL device, so Schneider had to get UL approval on the change
  • For me personally the plan is for an engineer to come out later this week or early next week to upload the firmware
  • All new units including units shipped last week have the firmware update
  • I do not have any specific instructions for other current users that do not have the fix yet.
For current users about all I could suggest is to try to contact Schneider if you haven't already. Since they now have a fix and a process they should be able to help you out now.
