Flexible fast charger issues around?

Hello,

Talking about this charger:


Did it happen to have any issues with the flex fast charging at home?

Talking about not charging constantly, faulty chargers or any issues that could arise.

I am just curious how consistent these things are. I have ordered a PHEV U11 and I am thinking that maybe a standby replacement cable should be always available on the garage.

Do you know also equivalent reliable fast chargers that can replace the factory one?

Thanks alot!

The 2014 and up BMW chargers in the U.S. were a little flaky with getting wet or being left on the ground. They were never intended to be the primary charger.

Aftermarket plug ups (turbocord, and even cheap chinese ones) have been crazy reliable.

The one you have indicated looks like an adapted aftermarket one for BMW. Likely to be fine for some time, but unpredictable.
