Juicebox after 5 days…

Its been 5 days since the Juicebox arrived. So far all has performed as well as expected. The Juicebox is reporting 43 kWh charged lifetime.

At this point I haven’t made use of the Juicebox’s charge timer, just using it like I used the other EVSE’s. So far I’ve noticed the following about it:

  • The clock doesn’t seem that accurate: Since this one doesn’t have WiFi it can’t sync to a time server so I wouldn’t expect it to keep perfect time (was off about an hour today when I checked–will have to monitor that more closely)
  • When the FFE is set for Value Charge (timed charge) I’m getting a charge fault right after plugging in. I’ve seen this occasionally with the other EVSE’s. It seems that the Focus gets out of sync with itself (like the charge module thinks its time to charge but the MyFordTouch timer says no it isn’t resulting in a fault). This clears itself up after a few minutes (Pressing “Update” a few times in the mobile app also appears to clear up the condition).

It still feels like a higher quality design/build than the other EVSE’s I have–this is mostly due to the case and the construction of the J1772 plug.
