I am considering installing a Powerwall 2. I appreciate that the Gateway 2 is designed to provide a no break (or nearly) supply in the event of a loss of power from the Grid which is great in a vulnerable household. Turning the coin around, are there any known faults within the Gateway that could lead to a loss of Grid power?

Had Powerwall 2 for 1 year+, Gateway 2 for 5 months ish.

Only problems encountered here are communication via broadband satellite. Gateway 2 is more picky and when broadband drops quality, it searches for a mobile signal (there isn't one). Switching off broadband for 5 mins resets the comms and all is well. Never had a problem as per your enquiry, but suspect if Gateway 2 goes down, you might well not have an electricity supply.

According to G2, we have had an accumulative total of 6 hours of powercut, mostly unnoticed by us.

Hope this helps.
