    New “hyper fast” charging issues

    Last weekend I did a road trip and had charging failures at three different Electrify America charging stations at their brand-new “hyper fast” chargers. I’d pull into a new 350kW charger, plug in, tap my EA membership card (from Apple Pay), and after a couple seconds and loud clicks, my car’s...
  2. Almost ran out of battery at EA station

    I thought I would share my video documenting my latest charging experience at an EA station. Let me know your thoughts.

    Which charging networks are worth paid plan?

    I have owned my MME GT since Halloween 2021. I am close to using the last of the EA credits (500 to start - down to 49). I travel largely in the mid-atlantic states of PA, DE, MD, DC, and VA, and it seems EA and EVGo are the most frequent DCFG networks, and Chargepoint, Volta, Sema-connect, and...

    Received an email from the Early Access Program just now. Placed the order, and now just waiting on the confirmation email that it's ready to go. Excited to see this coming to life after it sort of vanished.

    HELP - Charging Network Membership FAIL

    Purchased a GTPE on 9/1/21. Love the car, performance is awesome, etc. etc. That said, is anyone having issues with getting their complimentary access to the Blue Oval network? I have been trying to figure this out for over a month. I log into ford.com and go to connected services, and I...

    2000 Mile Road Trip: Charging and Efficiency of the Mach-E

    We had a road trip planned and happened to take delivery of our extended range, RWD MME 2 weeks beforehand. Now or never... we dove head first and packed up the car, our 4 year old daughter, 2 year old son, and dog and headed from NJ to St. Louis. For those who like to delve into the data and...

    How does an EA membership interact with Blue Oval?

    I'm considering buying an EA membership for the cheaper charging rates, but I'm not sure I'll be able to actually use it. When I plug my car into an EA station, it immediately begins a Blue Oval (formerly Ford Pass Charging Network) transaction and handles payment through Ford. If I get an EA...

    SOLVED: Consistent "Charge Station Fault" error at EA chargers?

    I got my MME two weeks ago, but I'm still waiting for an electrician appointment to install the Ford charger I have sitting in its box. So, in the meantime, I've been using DC chargers as needed, mostly EA (Electrify America) chargers. The EA chargers are fast (and I'm still using the...

    First multi-state trip in my MME FE

    Took my first long-distance trip in my MME FE from Georgia to North Carolina. I used Ford navigation. A few thoughts/comments/observations/questions: I planned the trip using the Ford nav system. It automatically added DC chargers along the route. It was a viable route and seemed to space out...

    Fast Charging at Electrify America: Lessons learned

    Hey guys, I just completed a mini road trip from Dallas to Austin (483 miles at 3.3 mi/kWh) and I did run into some issues at EA while fast charging. We did lose a lot of time with avoidable mistakes so I figured I'd share those and maybe that could help someone. Don't trust the sticker on the...

    My (good) first impression using Electrify America fast charging for the first time

    Hey guys, We took a trip yesterday (~272 mi) and I was planning a fast charging stop so we could try it for the first time but still have a possibility to come home if it crapped out. I was reading the forums yesterday (this thread & this one) and people were bitching hard at EA saying it was...
