Hi everyone. I figured this would be a good time for another blog post where I can provide some updates, as well as a tip for those of you who may have had problems with the home charger system.
So with regards to the former, I am now at about 3,800 km on the odometer and I’ve yet to encounter any glaring issues with the car. I continue to find the driving dynamics and overall character of the car quite mesmeric. I truly feel like I am in my own special zone when driving the Taycan; its heightened zen-like sensory outputs allowing my mind to remain focused, while also keeping my heart at ease.
Let’s see…. since my last post, I’ve got the windows tinted for privacy. I think 30% all around (except the windshield) should do the job of mitigating unwanted moments which would be disruptive to the desired experience when driving the car, especially while I’m minding my own business around town.
I’ve also essentially solved the home charging issue I was having which I briefly touched on in an earlier post, bringing us to the latter point.
Using the Porsche Connect app on my phone, I played around with some of the charging settings which were for the most part, on default. It looks like I’ve managed to solve the problem of the car not charging overnight or when it was set to do so, as this issue has not come up again since the changes. Here’s a quick walk through on what I changed and what has worked for me.
It was pretty annoying getting into the car some mornings and seeing that it didn’t charge, even though it was physically plugged in. The changes I made – as outlined in this guide – seemed to have eliminated this issue for me. Now I’m able to plug-in with confidence, knowing I’ll have a fully charged Taycan waiting for me the following day. Life is good.
