Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

Trying calling the Weights and Measures people and see if they, or the county, will do an inspection... Phximiev, you're kidding, right? (you forgot the smiley face), as I don't think there is any issue here at all. Blink charges 39¢/kWh (if you're a member) at this station, no matter what the volt...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

My point about the numbers and scientific method is that they are useless if you are trying to use them to prove something that does not match what you are actually observing with simple repeated observation. Especially when you also write in a way that sounds condescending. You asked how I calcula...

Re: Car Cover?

Ok, here is the Budge Cover. Again we are particularly pleased with it. http://i.imgur.com/QaN4Lsw.jpg We use it every day for the 'Miev as its parked under the tree. And recommend it again. It has particularly helped with the recent temperatures. See: http://ktar.com/story/2152585/phoenix-temperat...

Re: new program for monitoring charge readings

This looks like an interesting app. Will it work with the OBDLink scantool (STN chip?), or does it require an ELM327 chip device? Yes ! loosely , any scanner ELM327 ( STN chip , ARM chip , PIC chip ) usb, wi-fi, bluetooth. Since its an Android app, it won't work on my iPhone. Do you have plans to c...

Re: A/C sticker shock

when I charged the car that morning it was for only about 4 hours, went from 17 to 30 on the guessometer. Is the problem also with (or only with) the traction battery? When we first bought our iMiev, it only charged to 32. Prior to buying it, the dealer checked the traction battery and replaced it ...

Re: E-Vacation

That's cool especially considering that we are in our own vacation now. Wife and kids flew into Seattle, WA, whilst I drove the Volt up. We traveled up through Victoria Island, Vancouver, and down the coast. We are now in Starbucks just north of Santa Rosa. BTW, whilst in Vancouver, we saw several S...

Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

I measured regen efficiency several times uses two i-MiEV cars. When the front i-MiEV, going 30 mph, uses 8 BARS (~7 kWh) the towed i-MiEV using regen B adds 4 BARS (~3.5 kWh). This implies the i-MiEV is about 70% efficient from battery to wheel/road, and the round trip back to the battery is about...
