Hi,
Does any know the minimum amperage/watts that is needed for charging? I'm asking since when I'm using solar energy only in my wallbox, I need to have 5 amps at 220/230v for the wallbox to start, and I was wondering if this is a limitation of the wallbox or is a limitation from Kia ev6.

I think the EV6 will pull what it can up to 48A.

I've tested my level 2 (hardwired 60A breaker) the minimum setting (based on the EV6 setting) pulled 6.9Kw and the max pulled 11.6Kw

That sounds like a wallbox "need"

The SAE J1772 protocol doesn't support anything lower than 6 amps so I doubt it is a WallBox problem as I'm sure it and the onboard charger are designed to stay within the protocol standards.
