Jack Evans Chevrolet iMiev

Hello all,

If interested, I traded my iMiev for a Chevy Bolt approx. a month ago. The i is currently for sale on their website for $6995.

It was always an excellent car. 28,127 miles. SE model. I put two new front tires on it a month before I traded it.

Re: Charge problem?

Thx Kiev. I read about the fire ant problem you had. I've looked already but I will look again to ensure that I haven't missed something not so obvious. :mrgreen:

Charge problem?

Hello all. 2012 SE with approx. 27K miles. factory stock. Never had any problems in the past. Last week I started having what I believe to be not a problem yet but just an anomaly. Up to last week, when I plug in my level 2 EVSE to charge the car, it charges as normal. It would start charging right ...

Re: 12 Volt battery is failing, I'm looking for replacement

I replaced my original with an Optima yellow top. $$$ouch! I have over a dozen Optima D34 lying around here (left over from my Sparrows), but haven't yet needed to replace my i-MiEV OEM so haven't even tried to see if they fit. Exactly which Optima yellow-top did you install and did you need to mak...

Re: Level 2 charging

Thanks for the quick reply. I knew the charger was in the car and was hoping it would charge at a much higher amperage. I don't have the quick charge option so looking for every little bit I can.

Level 2 charging

Hello and I hope everyone is doing well. Does anyone know what the max amperage is that our cars will charge at with a level 2 charger.

Re: Charging timer

Yes I have. Attached is my spreadsheet of several temperature measurements taken to determine if charger/motor waste heat would be worth tapping into. One could set a delay start timer so that the charger pre-heats the coolant loop before driving if utilizing waste heat. https://www.dropbox.com/s/8...

Re: Charging timer

We have the highest electrical rates in the nation here in Hawaii, but an EV owner can get a "Time of Use" meter that allows big reduction in rates after 9pm, till 7 AM, so the feature that came with me vehicle has been a blessing. My monthly electric bill with nightly use has not gone up...

Re: Charging timer

twiin640, here's why I like my Remote Timer - 1. I have Time-Of-Use and simply pre-schedule my charging to avoid the VERY high Peak power charges. 2. In order to stroke my battery, I rarely fully charge it and set the timer to stop charging somewhere around 12 bars. 3. Upon arriving home from a hot...
