Re: Weird Charging Curve

derminghsieh, the normal 'timeout' dropout lasts anywhere between six and twenty minutes, and the reason for it is believed to be to determine if there is excessive voltage sag in the pack before continuing with the charging.

Re: MiEV newbie needs advice please

Aloha BigIslandMiev, and welcome to the forum. Agree with Don's comments, as issues with the i-MiEV are few and far-between.

Re: Hatched a Tesla

Brief update on our cross-country Tesla tour. Today heading for Prince Edward Island, after being shown a fantastic time in Montreal by Sandy ("sandange") and his wife, and had a nice meetup with DonDakin. There is such a commonality of viewpoints and interests amongst us i-MiEV owners!
