Re: Electric Car Review Talking Points

Related: When looking at used EVs on cars.com, etc., the number one thing I want to know (for models where it varies) is: Does it have DCFC? How often this is answered in the ad: approximately 0% of the time. Instead, the listings are full of copy enumerating such amazing and unexpected features as ...

Re: My JuiceBox has gone wonky

It doesn't use Bluetooth. The EVSE connects to wifi, and communicates with the app over the public Internet. (!) You can also use their web site. I won't be surprised if it comes back up after I restart it, but I'll be surprised if it stays connected long, at this point. (I'm leaving it off for now....

My JuiceBox has gone wonky

The charge before last, the graph (as seen in the apps, on iOS and Android) abruptly dropped off after a few minutes, but the charge completely normally, AFAICT (almost a full charge, over five hours). Then, last night, I fully charged the car, and it never showed up in the apps at all -- in fact, t...

I don't see any, besides the name. That isn't unusual --

safe to use on 240v?

They both explicitly cite 240V. I see no reason to doubt that.

The remote is covered in the main i-MiEV manual. (If you don't have that, just google "i-miev manual".) I don't think there's any other documentation for it.

Re: Almost an owner ... but need advice

There's no display in the i-MiEV that's equivalent to the Leaf's battery health gauge, but some people use Canion (q.v.) to get more detailed info on their batteries. "All bars on" and "100%" are the same thing. The only "bar" display in the i-MiEV is the charge gauge, ...

Re: happy new owner

Only thing quite weird is there is NO seat heater, just a never holed out place in dash where toggle switch would have been. Since we have the remote, not too concerned, though. Guess one could always get an aftermarket 12V pad, although I would be afraid daughter would just run down her battery by...

Like how the banks don't mind when you rob them, because they're insured?
