Anyone else having issue with charging. It has happened with level 1 and level 2 charger. I get it can take longer but burning through electricity at home is not saving on gas.

I actually had this happen once, I think it stopped on a re-plug and I haven't had the issue since. I wish I could add more but my Jeep is fine now, it seems...

I tried that and worked couple times. Just moved it from Level 2 to level 1 and it finally went to 100%. There is a bug somewhere.

I wonder if it's leveling the pack, warming/cooling it, or something else like that? This could be totally normal.

Mine shows 99% after being plugged in all night with a level 1, still waiting on my chargepoint to arrive. Seems the state of charge % is linked to the battery display incorrectly showing 1% when things are depleted, but it really has more like 15% in reserve.
Sort of seems like FCA should have just had the display report the actual numbers instead of this false algorithm, then just go into a battery reserve mode at 15%.
Kinda reminds me of VW with dieselgate, I had a 2010 Golf TDI, great little car, but in the end I couldn’t refuse their buyback offer, and I didn’t want to loose the performance by them re-flashing the ECU, I know it wouldn’t have effected it all that much, but all the same I took the $…..The most unfortunate and ironic thing about the TDI’s wasn’t the emissions it was actually putting out, but the unobtainable and skewed emissions standards that are in place that needed to be cheated in order to show us it’s possible to make a small, peppy, economical and at the same time, fun to drive diesel auto. Anyway, rant over…..

the 4xe has a 400-volt, 17-kWh, 96-cell Samsung lithium ion battery pack . if we do the math to 98% total charge. 95 cell divided to 96 cells = 99%, 94 cells div to 96 cells = 98%.
so it can be 1 or 2 bad cells or 96 cells with less then 100%. each. or the jeep computer counts wrong. or the charger gives to less power at the end of charge to the jeep and the 4xe just says "thanks i'm full, see you later" and cuts off the charger.

forget the battery, the jeep will always show 100% even if the total capacity is reduced.

Perhaps, problem is it was still trying to charge all night. Woke up this morning after plugging it in at midnight to see the charging dash lights still on. So basically I wasted a lot of electricity and I am not sure why it didn’t charge to 100%. First time it has happened, experimenting more today.

Was it actively drawing electricity all night? That would seem very wasteful if so.

I think you guys are chasing shadows. The % charge level is not a precision instrument so who knows how much energy is actually being stored at 98% or 100%. At 100% it could still be taking a charge; no way of knowing without proper instrumentation.

X2 charged from <1% to 100%. No issues. I am not sure what happened last night. From here on out I will schedule the charging times and watch this more closely.
