Hi guys,

Currently, I am charging my lovely Taycan using the 3 pin power supply at home.

I am roughly getting 1.03kwh -1.3kwh output.

I am right to say that I could achieve a maximum charge output of 3.6kwh, and how?

I have a single phase, considering installing a commando socket with a 32amp which would give a maximum output of 7.6 kwh.

Can you achieve 11kwh output only from a 3 phase or this possible on a single phase?

I have the standard battery 79.2kwh.

In the US you can use the Mobile Charge Connect or the standard Mobile Charge with a single phase 240V AC 50 A socket to charge at 9.6 kw. The availible plug styles are NEMA 14-50 or NEMA 6-50. 14-50 is common for electric clothes dryers and uses 4 wires: 2 hot, one neutral and one ground. 6-50 is common for shop equipment like welders, and uses 3 wires, 2 hot and one neutral. On either of these chargers the draw is 40 A, because 80% of circuit breaker capacity is the recommended maximum. I have seen YouTube videos showing how to configure the Mobile Charge Connect for 240V circuits with less than 50 A capacity.

I know nothing about 3-phase systems.

My wife’s Audi A3 E-tron has a charger that looks much like the standard Mobile Charge, but while it came with a 6-50 plug, it only draws 16A, and thus is for a circuit with a 20 A breaker.

Hello everyone! New Taycan owner with a 2021 Taycan RWD. I’m having problems at home with the Mobile Charger Plus that came with my car. I’m using 240V 50A outlet with the cable that came with the charger. When I plug it in it goes through it’s cycle and shows ready to charger. When I plug it in to the car it lights up red and so does the car. I have the electrician coming tomorrow so what should we check to get this system working? Thanks
