Very cool, but still missing English software/firmware release
I really like this device, but had to implement it on my own as the drivers/software needed have not been released on the Graupner USA web site. *can be found and a work around implemented if you do a little digging on the European web site. Overall I really enjoy the ease of scanning a simple QR code to quickly configure my charger. Bonus that I can print the codes myself and don't have to purchase RDIF consumables. However, the documentation is lacking, and there was no warning that when I scanned my first code it would replace the current profile my charger was on (which by charger design was the last profile I used before shutting it down the last time it was used). I have now re-programmed that profile back into the charger, and manually selected an unused slot for future scanning as I don't plan to use profiles again any time soon now that I have the android app. I don't know if Graupner could program a default (trash) profile as the default when the charger boots (or have the charger switch to a designated profile when the wlan is active/selected), but it would be nice to have so that users don't accidentally delete/replace a preferred profile. Regardless, I'm still giving it 5 stars because once you are aware of the issue, you can avoid it moving forward (and programming it back was easily done by creating the profile in the bar code creator and then scanning it again).
Graupner: Thanks for your review. The firmware as well as instructions in English can be found on the product page: https://www.graupnerusa.com/Wireless-Charging-Module-for-Polaron-EX-EX1400-PRO-S8503.html
