Yes! I had to do manual at least once. It mainly happens right after it is done charging. 30 minutes later it releases just fine.

If there is a software update and the JB releases properly I may change my mind. Thanks for letting me know.

Yeah, our dealer called a few days ago. They may be doing different things to handle the inconvenience, but they did do something for us. We haven't had the issue on the JB40 we installed, but we did have initial trouble getting it to snap in. No issue now.

Question:

I have the EVSE below that I use for my Honda Clarity PHEV (which I'm trading for my e-tron that's now at the port in RI, doing whatever they do there):

"Jekayla Level 2 32 Amp Portable Electric Vehicle Charger Plug-in EV Charger EV Charging Station for Home, RV Park and Travel, NEMA 14-50 Plug, 7.68 KW"

I have 14-50 outlets on 50 amp circuits in my main home and my summer place. I currently schlep the EVSE between the locations, which isn't very convenient.

I'm thinking of leaving the 32 amp EVSE plugged in at the summer place, and the Audi EVSE at the main house. If I were to do this, what should I expect the difference to be, in charging MPH, between the two locations?

Hmm!

they say DC only but it has happened to me 4-5 times so far on the JB L2. Last sunday after a bunch of run-abouts and plug-ins it happened to me twice where the plug would not readily release. Only on the 40 amp JB. Never on the 32 amp units I have.

Fair point, but I bet it's also for AC. Interesting…. I don't think others have had the issue. Maybe check with the charging company? When we had an issue, we were told we were the first they knew of with an e-tron, so they were interested in ensuring that there's nothing they need to update for it.
