Juicebox, I-Pace, and Time of Use
I recently purchased and installed a JuiceBox Pro for my I-Pace. I thought that it would solve a problem that I had with two other chargers, but so far it hasn't. The issue is that when I plug an inactive charger into the car, and power it up a few hours later (or minutes), the car does not start charging unless I unlock and relock the doors. Specifically:
- car is plugged in to Juicebox outside of Juicebox Time of Use window
- car is locked
- No time of use/delayed charging is set on the car
- when the Time of Use arrives, charger powers on, but car doesn't start to charge
- only way to get it to start to charge other than unplugging/plugging back in is to lock and unlock the car
I've had this be the case with one other L2 charger: if the charger is off/unpowered when plugged in and later powered up (at least several minutes later), car will not start charging.
Is this a "how it is" situation with the I-Pace or do others have a different experience. In short, I can't find a time of use solution that actually works.
