Re: Power Hungry Vacuum Pump

charliejuliett, thank you for making those measurements and posting the pictures. BIG difference between the two (not addressed in the recall notice).

Re: happy new owner

paxfamilia, congratulations! The seat heater switch was partially pushed in on my friend's i-MiEV when he bought it a few weeks ago. On your car, I'd be willing to bet that someone had simply jabbed the switch and it popped back out of its snaps and simply fell down behind the panel, with the wires ...

Re: Charging from 48V DC

dracekvo, similarly to you, I also have a 48v battery --> 4kW inverter to produce 240vac --> J1772 EVSE --> onboard charger --> i-MiEV battery pack. Haven't measured the 48v power draw to compare to CaniOn charging current&voltage readings, but I'm sure it's not very efficient. In my case, I alr...

Re: Any tips to damaging the main battery?

Hey guys (and gals), sorry, don't mean to offend anyone - I have an ethical problem with this thread. From the perspective of the manufacturer, their engineers did their best to design a battery management system to protect the battery so that Mitsubishi management could stick their necks out and co...

Re: 2012 I Miev SE for sale $4100

1Recycler, all battery replacements to date have been done under warranty at zero cost to the owner. Mitsubishi has been very good about this. Wish we could say the same about the charger/dc-dc module.

Dead Onboard Charger in Portugal

I opened up this new thread for footswitch as these posts had been in the charger cooling thread. Footswitch, very awkward situation for you, as Mitsubishi's prices for the onboard chargers are atrocious. I'm hoping that kiev and his team will continue their progress in repairing the darn things, an...

Re: 1,193 mile i-Miev trip finished!

Wonderful! ... and didn't you have a heat wave during that trip? Have you written up this trip anywhere? What was your percentage of DCFC, Level 2, and Level 1 charging? Surprised about ChargePoint, and EVgo has always had reliable hardware (for me) and their revised rate structure makes them now ve...

Re: help with used purchase

paxfamilia, I just sent you a PM. One word of caution: just because there is a small access door on the driver's side of the car on the aft rear quarter, doesn't mean it has DCQC. There are two ways to tell if an i-MiEV has CHAdeMO: 1. There is a small lever on the left side at the bottom of the dri...

Re: help with used purchase

Hello paxfamilia - you came to the right place to get some information about the i-MiEV. Sorry your test drive was a bit of a disappointment - I hope the tire pressure was correct (36psi, although many of us go a bit higher), as that also makes a difference in how the car handles. A strong Kansas cr...

Iced at the Public Charging Station (Canadian Version)

Since we have quite a few Canadian members on our i-MiEV forum, I couldn't resist porting over this post from the Hyundai Kona EV forum, courtesy of that forum's member Electric Eddy -
