Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

With my car I've verified that the 1.1kW problem does not occur when the other port is not being actively used even though the second port's J1772 is plugged into a car. The way I intend to perform the test is to plug another car into the other port and have it be charging. Then, plug my i-MiEV in a...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

So, this morning I met my friend at ChargePoint to do some testing. ChargePoint HQ has at least two-dozen charging stations in their parking lot in addition to a couple of dual CHAdeMO/CCS DCFCs and a couple of single DCFC units as well. Almost all of the J1772 units had cars plugged into them. Now,...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

ChrisEV, thanks for that information. So, that timeout does not necessarily correlate to SoC. I will continue monitoring my charging a little more closely, as another variable to look at is the point at which timeout starts after charging commences.

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Yet another data point. My car's battery capacity is reading 38.7Ah on CaniOn. Another data point. Came back this morning with seven bars. Plugged into 240vac as I needed to go to a meeting early this afternoon. Set Remote for 1-1/2 hours. Charged to 12 bars and 74.5%. Checking my home monitor I see...

Re: my miev do not see the traction battery

miev2012JP, welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Could you elaborate a bit more? Presumably the car is completely 'dead'? Do you have any indicators light up when you turn the key? 12v ok? The HV battery safety plug under the seat is in place? North American car (2012?), but you'...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Well, in preparation for going down to ChargePoint I thought I'd verify the 36% point at which the 'timeout' occurs. I drove my car down to two bars and plugged into my old 240vac JuiceBox (rare for me at home as I use 120vac nowadays), set up my Android with CaniOn to run off a separate USB power s...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

1pk, thank you very much for posting these videos. They will be a big help to someone like myself with a backup 2016 OBC when (not 'if') it comes time to replace an OBC in one of my 2012s. I admire your willingness to roll up your sleeves and get the job done and delighted it worked. Interesting the...

Re: Animation of EV sales chart

Thanks for this. Nice to see our i-MiEV on the chart for a few years. Looks like we were #6 at some instant in time. It took until 2018 before the Model S surpassed the Leaf. The magnitude of Tesla's impact would be "off the chart" if the chart consolidated all models by manufacturer. I we...

Re: ASC

I wouldn't mind the ASC switch if I didn't have to hold it for the interminably-long requisite three seconds. :evil: Your roads in Mississippi must be better than ours, because all it takes is a rough surface on any curve and the ASC does its thing. What I find most disconcerting are the long sweepi...
