Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

My 100Amp main box is full so I would need a sub box or a new 200Amp box which I know is expensive. Code will probably not allow an additional sub-box. If you upgrade your main panel to 200A, then go ahead and run the conduit and put in a NEMA 14-50 outlet, as this will future-proof you for your ne...

Re: SILVER 2012 MITSUBISHI I-MIEV WITH ONLY 18,000 MILES - CARMAX RECONDITIONED

Macarose, thank you for coming back with your answers. DCQC = DC Quick Charge, the ability to recharge the i-MiEV at a high rate (usually 50kW) instead of the normal Level 2 3kW rate, utilizing an external high-power DC charger. A good option to have when taking longer trips. The i-MiEV uses the Jap...

Re: SILVER 2012 MITSUBISHI I-MIEV WITH ONLY 18,000 MILES - CARMAX RECONDITIONED

macarose, thanks for listing. A few questions -

1. Have you performed a battery capacity measurement and, if so, what was the reading?
2. Is this an ES or SE? If SE, is it a Premium?
3. DCQC?
4. What options?
5. How long have you owned it and why are you selling it?

Re: Battery Balancing L1 vs L2

The "time-out" which occurs after the start of charging I've seen last anywhere from 6 to 20 minutes. Especially infuriating when it occurs at a public charger and one wants to get on with it. IIRC, we even had a report of a public charger shutting off, thinking the i-MiEV had stopped char...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

DBMandrake, I think we're on the same page and perhaps with your permission I might move this efficiency discussion to a separate thread if you wish to continue it - finding these conversations within mis-titled threads in the future is difficult. My RR always goes up after leaving home: I live up a...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

DBMandrake, thank you for posting those images and analyses, and thanks for stress-testing your battery in the interest of science. My impression is that your battery is just fine and does not exhibit the dramatic individual cell failure which some of us have experienced (and which was cause for bat...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

DBMandrake, thanks for posting your details. Warranty questions aside, at least the initial readings by CaniOn look very good. As you pointed out, lower down the SoC is where we'd expect issues, if any. I haven't checked mine down there for a long time. After you fully fully charge the car and it do...

Re: OEM EVSE Fault

bradleydavidgood777, nice discussion and explanation by kiev and I agree with Don that problems with our OEM (Mitsubishi-Panasonic) EVSEs are very rare. Although your test plug showed no issues, the quickest way to isolate is to try a different EVSE on your home power circuit - whereabouts are you l...

Re: (WTB) Looking for an LEV50.

Hello mievan,

1. Where are you located? Perhaps update your profile.

2. When you finally do obtain your LEV50, would you be kind enough to let us know where you got it?

Thank you, and good luck.

Re: Fully Charged

misterbleepy, thanks for the post. Truly a massive energy-storage and power-generating system. It took them over ten years to build and become operational, probably at an astronomical price. 75% efficient, but interesting that they can get a generator on-line in only ten seconds. Only three such sit...
