Re: Buying Used i-MiEV with Expired Warranty

:shock: You can get these cars for really cheap in the US.

Well, most cars, actually. Here in Europe is always so much more expensive.

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

Just to add some more numbers, with Canion I see a maximum of 2.5kW going into the battery (7 Amps at 360V), and since it's already measured as DC, it's the value after losses in the internal charger and so on. This is at 13.5-14 Amp charging in a 240V outlet. Since we do not have 120V outlets in Po...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Nice article. Maybe you could join the portugese community of EV at nissanleafpt.com (It's a forum where we talk about all electric cars, not just nissan) and share this story. Honestly, I expected a bit more kw pumped into the battery. At least when I charge my car on a public Mennekes charger to f...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

rnlcarlov, USD 92 ! Nice price. But didn't you have trouble with customs? At least here stuff from China gets stopped in customs quite often, and then we have to dish out more money. I bought mine from a UK store (around 160$), but at least I didn't have surprise charges afterwards. With China woul...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

And directly from China, J1772 (Type 1) to Mennekes (Type 2) adapter. Now I can use BMW's popular L2 charging stations. :P I got one of those from the UK. Not that there's BMW charging stations here, bue because it can connect to tethered Mennekes connections that exist coupled to some DC chargers ...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

<span>Well, shipping the Setec from China was going to be $500 and I was still unclear what input adapters they provide. It turns out this is the same unit being sold by <a href="https://www.evseadapters.com/?ll_ref_id=9d5y" class="interlinkr" target="_blank">EVSEAdapt...

Re: How Well Does My Remaining Range Compare With Other Older Cars?

Turtle mode is at 9.5% SOC and the car stops when one of these events happen: 1) 0% SOC is reached 2) One cell reaches 2.7V So as the battery degrades you stop being able to reach 0% SOC (less distance driven in turtle), because one cell will reach 2.7V first. But that's only until the car makes a c...

I just came back from US and brought a nice JuiceBox Pro 40A... I must say that the original 240V 50Hz EVSE had some issues... Not only it never charged close to the stated 16A

How much did it charge? Of course it won't charge 16A. The car accepts only 13-14Amps, not more.

Re: new program for monitoring charge readings

After getting this set up and running, I am disappointed to report that it doesn't display individual battery status or capacity on my newer 2016 iMiev. EVBatMon and CanIon have the same problem. Seems that nobody can figure out how to do this with newer models. Maybe it's just not possible? That's...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

I found there's a facebook group for SETEC charger owners. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2285672388324912/?ref=group_header It's a nice way of learning how well they perform. It seems user Mark is talking to Setec in order to get a charger that accepts both single and three-phase input.
