Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Forum readers will recall that Aerowhatt and I have been embroiled in a discussion as to whether regeneration and slower downhill descents will increase an i-MiEV's range as compared to putting the i-MiEV into Neutral and simply coasting down the hill. Aerowhatt is a proponent of coasting and, from ...

Re: Canion

Simon (DBMandrake), thank you very much for this in-depth update. Appreciate your going back to the originators of both OBDLink and CaniOn and providing them the feedback - and their respective responsiveness.

Re: Attached Garage Air Conditioner

RobertC, thank you for posting. Someone I know in California's central valley is buying an EV and their garage regularly sits at >100°F and the mini-split has been on my mind to do exactly what you did. Insulating the large garage doors is a nice touch! Agree with Don, a garage that 'clean' is alien...

Re: Adapters

... just verifying, this will not be any benefit over a 20A 120v 5-15 outlet correct? Correct - that's a 20A outlet into which you're plugging in your 15A plug. Bradleydavidgood777, the link you provided was for Teslas - specifically, the Tesla configuration for utilizing high-current 120vac from a...

Re: Supplemental cooling for the charger.

...You can just see the blower under the bracket. It is held in place by the channel over the lip of the "hood" opening. And a single bolt in the existing threaded hole on the charger case. Aerowhatt, looks like a nice clean install. Speaking of clean, is that compartment merely the resul...

Re: Range/Battery Degradation ??

rkar189203, delighted you're still taking longer trips in your i-MiEV. You honed your efficient driving skills during your cross-country trip, and now it simply comes naturally. Range continues to be "whatever we need it to be" and I'm impressed by the consistency of your readings after fo...

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

...Again, something is amiss... Phximiev, I'm afraid I can't get excited over this, and I don't believe that's been shown - 1. I'm no fan of Blink (just last week I sent them a trouble report about one of their local charging stations being inoperable), and have more than once been frustrated by th...

Re: California HOV White vs Red stickers

Yep, we early adopters are getting screwed, despite driving pure BEVs. This business of new wimpy (minimal range) PHEVs getting stickers sucks. That said, I think that HOV stickers should return to the original concept: multiple people in the car. https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1117837_everyth...

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

Trying calling the Weights and Measures people and see if they, or the county, will do an inspection... Phximiev, you're kidding, right? (you forgot the smiley face), as I don't think there is any issue here at all. Blink charges 39¢/kWh (if you're a member) at this station, no matter what the volt...
