Have a bug with my kaluza smart + charger where it will only go up to 31 amps even in boost mode instead of up to 32 amps. Anyone else have this?
It did keep tripping the 32amp breaker when charging every so often even when turned down to 29 amps so they changed the breaker to a combined 40 amp unit this week.
Hopefully I'm not just unlucky as the exact same unit I had before that died about 2 years ago which they had the replace
Can I also permanently disable smart charge mode so it only charges at the max charge rate when plugged in?

We’re breaking this down into 3:
- Why does the charger go up to only 31 A even in boost mode (i.e. why does it never report beyond 32A) - The charger will be limited to 30.2A after it connects to Kaluza when charging without boost. When boosting it will go to 32A. You might only see 31A if the CT clamp on the charger is miscalibrated slightly.
- Can the smart charger charge closer to 32 A and not at 29 A? - We’re looking into whether or not Kaluza might be able to send 40A by default. It will take some time before we have a fix but the team are currently investigating potential solutions.
- Can I permanently disable smart charge mode? It’s possible, by placing the charger into a ‘Troubleshooting’ setting. It’s not recommended though, could you let us know why you’d want to be able to make this permanent change?
