  1. New guy problems

    With a 98kWh battery pack (although mine never shows that much in car scanner) the difference between charging to 90% and 100% is 21 miles. Driving in town and even to other cities I have never felt the slightest bit of need to charge more than my usual 85% or more than Ford's recommendation...
  2. This Is How Easy It Is to Hack EV Chargers | WSJ

    Although I don’t really like smart chargers this is just alarmist and they intentionally conflate home EVSEs and DC fast chargers. It would be really hard to hurt the EV because the logic is done in the car, not the charger. At the nation state level knowing a zero day bug in both the EVSE...
  3. Will Ford Ever Increase Lightning Charging Speeds?

    I think that it would involve changing the battery voltage which is too much of a change for what is rapidly becoming a legacy truck. No offense to Ford, how many actual EV trucks has Tesla, GM, or Hyundai sold? This is a generation or two back from the current state of the art but it works...
  4. Pricing Lowered for 2024 Lightning! (Effective April 5, 2024)

    I don't think the heat pump will have a big effect on towing over the general benefits of having a heat pump in cold weather. For hot weather or towing the max tow package already includes two air conditioner compressors. In extremely cold weather it probably goes to resistive heating...
  5. POLL: Does your spouse refuse to drive an EV?

    You need "wife refuses to drive ICE vehicles and complains about the smell and noise when I start one." I think the odds of getting her to fill a car at a gas station are below zero now. If you have a wife who is worried about charging and range, the e-GMP vehicles (Hyundai, Kia, Genesis) are...
  6. Pricing Lowered for 2024 Lightning! (Effective April 5, 2024)

    They must be starting to clear out the '23s. The stop ship orders last year were really unfortunate because they ended up with a shortage at the beginning and a glut of 2023 models at the end of the year. Ford compounded the issue by announcing that the 24 had a heat pump. If I did not...
  7. 95% of used Lightnings have branded titles, what are the main reasons they were returned under lemon laws?

    And only 212 out of the 5000 used ones are single owner. I think something is wrong with your interpretation, and would also note that branded title usually means "accident", not "lemon".
  8. Any benefit to occasional 100% charge?

    I would like to know how much of the truck's behavior is determined by these parameters. It seems like the time at which it cuts off charging is determined by the indicated battery percent, so you might not be charging the battery as much as you think you are (or in the worse case, charging...
  9. Any benefit to occasional 100% charge?

    And this is what I find really strange - this chart shows the indicated state of charge (blue) vs the internal state of charge (green) while driving along with the estimated total energy left (red). These are both estimates but they should both be based on the same data, so you would think...
  10. Any benefit to occasional 100% charge?

    This is kind of a happy coincidence because I just sort of did that. Like you I had to leave before the truck stopped charging but this is the last few minutes, when the display was showing 99%. It was 100% just a minute or two later because my wife noticed it. I don't know if the charging...
  11. Any benefit to occasional 100% charge?

    Charging to 100% and then driving to under 20% may help to recalibrate the BMS but it is still not good for the batteries. Read the link below. In the recent truck race across America by Out Of Spec reviews, Kyle's dad (Team Lightning) has found out that there is NO buffer past zero, or a...
  12. Tesla Charging Prices - Not excited as others

    It is amazing how many people on forums hod Ecoboosts that could pull a 28' trailer up the mountains while getting 30 MPG. Something must have been wrong with mine, 18 would have been a good day. The mileage was the only reason I didn't drive it more, now we take it everywhere. We could...
  13. Tesla Charging Prices - Not excited as others

    And that far from home trip was 285 miles from my house. You long range trucks might not have even had to charge by then. When you start looking at the actual miles we drive the numbers are smaller than you think at least for the majority of us who live in more populated areas. It just...
  14. Tesla Charging Prices - Not excited as others

    Gas is $4.50 here and has hit near $6.00 in the past. The oil companies are not your friend. Getting an EV is just the start. If you get solar panels charging is free. In some states you can charge off peak for a few cents/kWh. I like the independence or potential independence. I also find it...
  15. Stranded on the I.C.E. !

    Did you use the same outlet for the portable charger? The internals of that outlet are probably toast, perhaps problems all the way back to and including the breaker. This could all indicate that your charge port also overheated and melted something. Have them replace it with a NACS :)
  16. Ford Delays T3 Electric Truck Development and Updates EV & Hybrid Plans

    Meanwhile, Hyundai has released their sixth e-GMP vehicle which happens to be a three row SUV and is about to release two more. Jim Farley said something recently about not wanting to have a lot of "top hats" over a platform. I guess that has changed just like he has changed the focus from...
  17. 46kWh at 60Mph on flat highway... Normal ?

    There is an Energy Used screen that is almost but not completely useless - you can see how much of the energy is actually being used for transport rather than climate or battery heating. Of course it is only percentages because Americans don't like scary numbers like kWh and are scared by...
  18. 24' Pro (with heat pump) vs 23' Pro with Tow Tech, Pro Power, Max Tow

    I would go with the '23. Heat pumps are not simple things, I used to think it was just a valve in a normal air conditioner but there are complications. I would be pleasantly surprised if Ford managed to do the heat pump roll out without a few recalls along the way. You need the Pro Power...
  19. What (to you) is an EV-Ready Corridor?

    You are thinking like a Lightning owner :) The EV6 will put in over 200 miles in 18 minutes. Faster charging cars is what we need, a Taychan at a 350 kw charger was in and out in less than five minutes the other day near me.
  20. What (to you) is an EV-Ready Corridor?

    The government is always behind the times. Nobody expects to road trip a 2010 Leaf and any decent long range car has at least 250 miles of range. (I speak as an SR Lightning owner.) What we want is consistancy. I would rather have a 99% chance that my planned trip will work without...
