Re: Adapters

So if more amps end up in the wire it's going to be up to 30 amps momentarily before the house breaker trips right? No sustained high current will be thru there right? Maybe 50 amps at a campground tho right? Again, I'm not arguing with you just letting you know my questions so that I can understan...

Re: Adapters

Aerowhatt - Can we see your setup? Are you saying that you use 5-15 connectors for 240V and are comfortable with that? If so why are you? Also I'm interesting in seeing your AFCI breakers and box and knowing what parts you used/brand/specs. And how much of a risk you think there is of an arc happen...

Re: Adapters

High amperage can cause fires whereas high voltage can kill you. The presumption in these discussions is that the users understand what they are doing. If in doubt, ask. For example, I personally am uncomfortable with bradleydavidgood777 's intended use of a 120vac power cord with 120vac connectors...

Re: Adapters

If it was just a 30 amp dryer outlet, I don't think I wouldn't have bothered. Short out a 12 gauge extension cord and you will trip a 30 amp breaker or blow a 30 amp fuse almost instantly, long before the conductors in the extension cord even have a chance to get warm, let alone hot. But . . . . wh...

Re: Adapters

bradleydavidgood777, thank you for your post. I see that you took the inexpensive way out and are using your 120vac extension cord for 240vac without changing the connectors over to 6-20. Just pay attention as to which voltage you have at the other end when you use it. :geek: :roll: Plus also - you...

Re: Stock Shocks Replacement Options

Nothing special (by appearance) about the rear shocks. We just need to pull a part # and then it should be pretty straight forward to find a replacement for between $20 and $50 each. I'll see if I can find one on the labels next time that I am about to hit the shower. ;)

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Thats a good point. In this case home is about 300 ft above the shore and its very flat all the way. So that does mean that it will be harder to get home from the shore. And the wind usually would be against me coming home also. But I have 5 chargers in Glassboro so I should be able to make it ther...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Route consideration is super important too. All the data I have been referring to so far. The routes start and end point are at the same location. More importantly the elevation change total is 0 ft for the round trip even if I climb do 5000 ft and then roll back down it. I did head towards Santa Fe...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Bradley's questions are hard to answer- but we can be confident that the driving mode makes absolutely no difference in energy use during steady-state cruising, it only differs during acceleration and deceleration. But it does matter. If you have canion get mi/kWh (not summary, but instant) on one ...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Cool! I've often thought that N was a good option for downhill. Doesn't make sense to me to brake even if recharging. It depends on the circumstances. If you need to go slower than the grade allows for than coasting in N then you should definitely be in a drive mode. I use D for two reasons. I get ...
