there are many chargers out there that would be faster than the current nerfed PMCC. there are threads regarding this on some other taycan/porsche forumsWhat if I purchase a new, different charger (not Porsche) to charge the car? Could we charge faster that way and bypass this charging mess the software "update" has created? Does anyone have experience with using a charger other than Porsche or Tesla to charge at home? It now takes 12 hours to charge my 2022 Taycan 4S to 80%! This is crazy and has seriously cut my range!
Good question...I don't know...ask Porsche.Does using a different charger at home void the warranty?

Level 2 is AC and so called Level 3 is DC. Completely different systems inside the car. 40 AMP is the maximum continuous duty for a 50 AMP breaker, per electrical code. On your Porsche mobile charger, touch the settings icon on the screen. Then you can bump the defaulted charge rate up or down, anywhere from 6 AMPS to the original 40 AMPS. In my case, something (I suspect the cable near the J1772 plug) gets hot enough to shut down the process before reaching 85%. 35 AMPS seems to work. Sandy Munro posted a thoughtful Youtube on house wiring problems with Level 2 chargers. One of his examples was with a Taycan plug socket, which may explain some of the Porsche response. That plug socket is not a Porsche item. It is a homeowner supplied part or the house wiring, but still could lead to serious issues.P.S.- I need to read the fine print, but I don't see how they could void a warranty considering you can charge the machine on any public level 3. Just a thought.
