Thanks for the replies so far, I guess I just assumed that it was 7.2 kW but I see also on the CARWINGS app that it's 6.6 kW on newer LEAF's --- I don't think that the EVSE is overtaxed as it always fully completes charging the battery; why rate the charger for 7.2 if it can't handle it, but again this EVSE is 5 years old now?
I've been busy with work so haven't been able to fiddle with it much but had a chance late yesterday and so far the problem seems to be once charging has completed, I was able to see the charger complete a few charging 'segments' on its display over a few hours (anyone who has one of these will know what I'm talking about --- bright green arc of a circle appears to show how long the car has been charging), but once the car completed charging and basically stops the charger, I think that's where it 'faults' -- so, I'm going to try a timed charge (or like if we were at a public L2 station during a shopping trip) and try and disconnect before its fully charged and see if it faults; I'd actually like to 'partially' charge the battery 80% anyway to extend its service life (I know, probably negligible) as well as be able to use regen right away but don't think VW has that option built-in automatically like the earlier LEAF's; still waiting on my VW Car-net mobile app to be activated to see if I can though.
At L2 it charges 24 miles/hour so will try a 2-hour segment and see what happens --- I should mention that whatever VW uses is extremely quiet, much less on-board noise from the car while charging than the '12 LEAF made and it charges much faster, go figure.
This EV is my stop-gap until we start seeing the Tesla Model 3 -- other than this minor glitch love the car, will add more specific comments on the VW e-Golf thread
