Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

From there I would still need an adapter from the 14-50 to the AmazingE which is 14-30. Unless I just cut that 14-30 off the AmazingE and put a 14-50 plug on it (if that would be safe to do for the outdoor connection in the weather). If you remove the neutral prong from a 14-30 plug, it will fit in...

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

I've been thinking about getting a new TV, but I don't want to pay for delivery. So, I measured the available space in the car, then went around measuring boxes in Best Buy. I think I might just barely be able to fit in a 55", but it'll be tight.

Re: Charging Issue

Personally, I swipe the Chargepoint key fob rather than using the app. No problems that way, IIRC.

Re: I have a secret - still a mystery?

I have a really hard time believing that someone bought a $23k car and only drove it 300 miles. My 2012 i-MiEV had barely over a thousand miles on it when I bought it in 2015. Of course, it turned out to have kind of a weird history -- originally "owned" by the City of Gaithersburg, who I...

I'm pretty sure that's not a thing.

Re: Replacement windshield wiper fluid resevoir cap

Heh, thanks. But to be clear, there's no shortage of caps available online; it's just that, when I check for compatibility, they all say no. The yeggi results don't seem much different in that respect -- no explicit compatibility checker, but no "i-MiEV" mentioned, either. I was hoping som...

Re: EVs in Everyday Life

I saw my first Tesla Model 3 today, at the Amish market. At least, I think that's what it was... I didn't get too close, but that front end is distinctive.

Re: Detaching the 12 volt

Well, I finally replaced the battery today. I'd left on the same damn cabin light again yesterday, and today the car would sort of start, but not go into Ready. I got various error lights, including the battery indicator. Weighing my options, I got out my multimeter and checked the voltage on the re...
