Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Recently a neighbor asked if I could help haul over a sofa she bought. Easy-peasy :) At first I didn't think it would be possible - but with a little thought it worked quite well actually. I have the Eco-hitch on my vehicle, and it's proven to be very useful a number of times. I can pull a trailer, ...

Re: Get your kicks on Route 66?

You can rent a portable Chademo charger from evseadapters.com, it'll make the charging quicker. Of course, if you're charging while you're sleeping, that's a nonissue. Quite a journey you have planned, and plenty of opportunities to discover interesting points along the way - looking forward to foll...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

No need to argue over nothing, guys. :( Anyway, regarding current ripple, I have no ideas about that - something that's over my head. However, I wonder whether the car's AC inverter driving an AC motor might also generate current ripple during normal operation. Additionally, I tend to think that if ...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

I've used it several times so far, in my experience it seems quite reliable actually. One time it was 105 degrees but it didn't seem to be affected by the temperature. It is kind of heavy (about 50 lbs) but what do you expect. With the carrying handle it's not too bad. It is a metal case, feels dura...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

Well there's a portable CHAdeMO charger commercially available now. This one from EVSEadapters puts out up to 20 amps which comes out to about 7200 watts. I've found I can fully charge in only about 2 hours - it almost feels like having a whole new car - it's great! Here's a photo of my car at a Cha...

Re: Trade iMiev for Leaf with quick charge?

Interesting question. I actually used to drive a Leaf before getting my 2014 iMiev. So I did the opposite: I traded in a Leaf that didn't have a quick charge port for an iMiev that did. I honestly much prefer the iMiev. The only advantages the Leaf has over the iMiev is that the Leaf has better inte...

Re: Canion

Canion still not working for me. This is the exact same OBDlink LX that I purchased: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H9S71LW The Canion developer thinks that I might have another OBD-II app installed on the tablet that's interfering, but if that's the case I have no idea if I do and how to remov...

Re: Canion

I bought mine direct from Amazon Prime, and it came in the sealed packaging, so it's definitely not fake. Trying it in another car is not likely - AFAIK my iMiev is the only one within a 70 mile radius. Thanks kiev for trying to help, I do appreciate it. Where's the Canion developer? Are you here on...

Re: Canion

Tried that just now. Unpaired everything, pressed the button on the OBDLink and paired it in Android, but still not getting any data updated in Canion. I haven't found anything about allowing the device to receive data. Checked all the settings I could find. On the bottom right corner it continuousl...
