  1. Updated Ford Intelligent Backup Power page details 320-Amp Home Service Required o_O

    "80 amp charger and do not want to power the house " I'd sell the charger unless you have some upgrade later or really need the 80A charge rate for some reason. That is a lot of power for an EV. Yes, you should be not only able to use that charger alone, you should be able to control it's...
  2. Wave 3 Feb 3rd ~ XLT SR

    I haven't seen any battery upgrades of any importance. The BMW i3 had a company make a demonstration pack that was 3x oem. I'd guess F150 EV will be only a short run with a new model in a few years and part a won't go into part b truck
  3. Best Practices For Feeding (Charging) and Caring of Our New Lightnings

    I don't notice a great loss in high temps. Low temps and going up and down hills seems to be most of my loss. I don't use a lot of AC. Put air directly on me most days. My wife had a 2500 diesel that did pretty good going up and down hills over a gas model. My EV's don't recover much power...
  4. 240v receptacle in the bed is L14-20 or L14-30 ?

    The Plug shown in photo is labled L14-30P in case anyone needs to know..
  5. Reserved within first 15 minutes, but dealer just told me I won't get a Lightning until 2023.

    I think I read TX and CA had the higher amount of reservations. Not sure if that would translate to more supply or not. From my dealers lack of replies I assume not.
  6. It's Gonna Be a Long 2 Weeks

    You can't trust EPA. You will have to wait for real world replies under many conditions. I've followed fuelly for a long time and the data is pretty good. https://www.fuelly.com/
  7. Mach E battery went up 2/3 Kwh

    I had a BMW i3 with REX. Really a silly idea to try to make a BEV into a PHEV. There are Ford F150's that are hybrid already.
  8. Wallbox Quasar

    There is a lot going on. One issue is how to get power out of truck. The power outlets can be used directly to loads. The outlets can be put into a backup generator transfer switch for either the whole house or selected loads. The other way is the unknown 80A charge unit that most likely will...
  9. Charging the F-150 Lightning: Everything You Need To Know [Video]

    Pretty sure you ought to get an electrician to discuss how to set transfer switches in your system and they would need to know the local utility rules on if or how you can connect PV to grid. For reference this is a list of what one might use to compare. Miles Per Kilowatt-hour Miles Per...
  10. Submit Questions to Tom Moloughney re: Intelligent Back Up

    Let's train our workforce on Twitter.
  11. Bi-Directional Power possible on Extended Range only?

    I'm all electric on 100A panel. Even charging an EV at night I don't think I've ever gone over 9KW in an hour. Efficiency pays except that the power company gives discounts to bigger users than me.
  12. Reserved within first 15 minutes, but dealer just told me I won't get a Lightning until 2023.

    I think I am starting to agree with the other person who mentioned the sort of Tesla bait and switch. Claim some inexpensive model and never really deliver it. Even with the compliance and carbon trading you'd think Ford would build what the customers wanted. I guess in exchange for telling...
  13. Pricing of cars/trucks going to collapse?

    Most States won't allow that dealer financing scam but a local one tried that on me. Said I had to keep it for 3 months but opps, I refinanced it. creeps.
  14. Wallbox Quasar

    Maybe?? I get the feeling the SR won't have a different part in the DC use.
  15. Reserved within first 15 minutes, but dealer just told me I won't get a Lightning until 2023.

    The Rock, Arnold and Jay will be ahead of you other riffraffs. I'd guess King George and Willie will be ahead of me in Texas.
  16. Best Practices For Feeding (Charging) and Caring of Our New Lightnings

    On one of my cars I can actually connect to the home wifi but pretty sure it will still have to go to a secure server then back to my car.
  17. Wallbox Quasar

    The quasar 2 will be able to be used with CCS only if supported in car. I think I read the price will be about $3K.
  18. Will Max Tow Package on Lightning reduce range when NOT towing?

    I see now why we can't get ours. The Rock and Arnold are in the front of the line. Maybe Jay also.
  19. Best Practices For Feeding (Charging) and Caring of Our New Lightnings

    Ford and other makers know that they will be able to sell connectivity to many end users in the years to come. Want to remote into your truck?? Pay $10 month. Want to get this or that?? Pay more. You know BlueCruise like other driving will be a subscription. I know many cars loose their...
