this is actually not the case with my car (caveat here is my car has been plagued with the continue to act like it's charging when it reaches my threshold setting and is STILL waiting for a fix from ford). So the only way to stop the onboard EVSE from running (loud humming and blue light at charge port on) is to either unplug or hit "stop charging" in fordpass. I note when I hit stop charging it stays stopped and I come out next morning still plugged in but charging is off, no hum no blue light.My sense is that people are talking apples and oranges.
The STOP CHARGING button in the FordPass app is NOT a STOP CHARGING BUTTON. It PAUSES charging, for a period, then resumes whenever the hell it wants to (as long as it's within your set charging hours). If you want to STOP charging before your charging limit is reached, you need to either set the limit lower, or unplug.
Charging to the set 85%, then charging to 100% (because someone hits CHARGE TO 100%), and then being done is exactly as it should work.
Vehicle has not reach it's limit, and stops charging on its own, within the charging hours. Then it starts again.
Am I not understanding?
It seems like the Emporia issue is the car reaches its set charging limit, stops taking power, yet the Emporia charger keeps trying and trying. That isn't correct performance, no. It should not try to charge when the vehicle is not asking.
Tho in this case it's not important I have a juicebox 40, but it's strictly the source of energy and I don't use any of the "smart aspects"
I'm in my fifth month of having to do it this way.
