I3S CCS2 DC charging woes

Post by Jon8 » Wed, 11 Jul 2018, 21:01

There is only 1 CCS2 public charger in Perth that I know of at UWA and it works fine. But the 20kw Setec portable charger in the shed which came with CCS2 cable wont talk with the I3S. So wanting to head South I got a CCS1 to CCS2 adaptor cable, tested it at the RAC headquarters CCS1 charger and got a full charge . Happy with that, headed South last Sunday. Got a charge at Donnybrook on the way down, but on the way back, I was charging merrily away, but then charging stopped with CCS fault. Tried a few times to restart no luck. Had enough range to get to Harvey but no go with CCS charging there. But the I3S will take 11kw 3 phase so charged on that to get home. Since then the software on the RAC Highway Circontrol chargers is being progressively updated. Will give it try at Mandurah this weekend.
