Re: How Many of You Have Had a Windshield Replaced?

I've had two replaced. The first one's install was delayed for the gasket, but the second one they had the windshield out before they realized the missing 'kit' so they just re-used the original gasket (I ok'd it). No leaks. I'm fascinated by the whole windshield replacement process, with quality of...

Re: Electric Car Review Talking Points

Sorry to be ragging on this, as it's developing into a wish list. What I'll do is compile everyone's ideas and then go back and do a serious organized update to the original list. Getting into the modern age, we'd like to have the ability to remotely read the EV's pertinent information and be able t...

Agree, and along that line, I want to know what maximum DCFC power the battery pack can absorb.

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Found this very good article discussing regeneration and its limits, further strengthening Aerowhatt's position in our regen vs. neutral debate. https://chargedevs.com/features/regenerative-braking-a-closer-look-at-the-methods-and-limits-of-regen/ Dang, gotta do some controlled tests to see if I can...

Re: C-Zero Inverter Failure

Michael011, I've been thinking further about your issue - a) I changed the title of the thread to Inverter since that's what your dealership is focusing on. After the initial problem it started working again, which is different than the charger/dc-dc hard failure experienced by others. b) I am not f...

Re: C-Zero Inverter/Charger/DC-DC Failure

Michael011, welcome to the forum and sorry to hear of your plight. As you can see, I opened up a new thread and moved these two posts into it so the discussion can focus on your specific problem.

Re: Electric Car Review Talking Points

Thought of another one: Does the vehicle display the 'fuel gauge' as a State of Charge number in percent and not just a bunch of 'bars'? Sorry, but I'm not happy that some vehicles are displaying a battery capacity number in terms of distance (e.g., Bolt), with Tesla at least offering the option of ...

Electric Car Review Talking Points

I thought I'd share the elements of my response on one of the electric vehicle news forums about yet another inane review of a new electric car that ignores many of the BEV distinguishing features, other than the usual of the reviewer being gobsmacked by the electric car's acceleration. Here's what ...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

Last year, I have bought the CHΛdeMO Setec Charger in a European retailers I have done a video. Merci! Thank you for showing some of the details of the display and I especially like the hatch latch extender :geek:, which is better than running the wire through a partially-open rear window which is ...
