Charged capacity of Powerwall2 on VPP

Hi all,

 

I'm curious to know from those who have had their Sunverge batteries replaced with the Tesla Powerwall 2 what total capacity they are seeing going to the battery on a full charge.

 

I ask this because my PW2 is (according to the Telsa app) only taking on 8.3kWh before it claims its full (100%) and starts exporting solar to the grid.  However the battery is supposed to have 13.5kWh of *usable* capacity!
In the screenshot, the battery did get to empty (at approx 8am) where it drew from the grid (very briefly) before charging again.
Would love to know what others are seeing for their total charged capacity.
Regards
Rob

Update: 

Contacted AGL who in turn contacted Tesla and the issue has now been fixed remotely.

PW2 took a full charge today of 12.8kWh but it wasn't flat when the sun came up (lasted all night) so this looks good now!

Loving the PW2 so far.  The Sunverge was a joke in comparison.
