Re: Canion

Is this only since the 143 update that came out recently ? I haven't had this happen, either on the older one or the newer one. I had a chance to test on 143 a bit and it still happens. Admittedly noticeably less. What happens is Canion seems to lose the BT connection. The app is running but the sc...

Re: Long Distance Travel Battery Thermal Concerns

I did about 250km in the imiev today, driving down from Toronto to Niagara Falls and back. I did about 5 DCQC sessions today. 3 full charges to 80% and 2 5 minute charges as I needed a bit of a boost. Forgot to run Canion most of the trip but by the end of the day Canion reported an average temperat...

Re: Canion

My Canion just goes black after a while and the BT just disconnected. Is this only since the 143 update that came out recently ? I haven't had this happen, either on the older one or the newer one. I'm thinking I might have an old firmware on my OBD LX but how do you upgrade the firmware? The Andro...

Re: Canion

My Canion just goes black after a while and the BT just disconnected. I'm thinking I might have an old firmware on my OBD LX but how do you upgrade the firmware? The Android app connects but since (I'm guessing) the imiev isn't OBD compliant it fails. Most of the time it just lights up a bunch of wa...

Re: Public Charging Station Customers

When charging is free people “top up” just because they can. I think L2 charging should be inexpensive. It’s a convenience when you’re shopping for example. I think someday they will have a system where if you spend $10 or more at an establishment they can validate 1-2 hours of charging or something...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

I think I have too much of a lead foot for D/B mode, in Eco Mode I can keep the needle more to the left much easier. I haven't had a chance to measure this in Cani0n but I seem to drive more efficiently in Eco Mode. I switch to B mode occasionally when I need to decelerate faster. When I see traffic...

Re: Charging Nit Pick

It's a better benefit for other drivers to know if they can unplug you if the car is charged. Real easy to tell if there's a nice light on the dashboard.

Although every public L2 I've ever used can tell you if it's actively charging, people don't seem to check.

Re: Pretty Good Level 2 EVSE for Less Than $200

I think I recall you bought a used 2012, correct? Probably your biggest bang for the buck would be to ship your EVSE to the folks at EVSE Upgrade and have them convert it. You will get back an L1/L2 unit capable of 12 amps on either 120 or 240 *and* it will have adjustable current. If you're chargi...

Re: Pretty Good Level 2 EVSE for Less Than $200

I thought I shouldn’t continuously run more than 12A on 14 gauge wire. If you're looking to buy the EVSE that is the subject of this thread, you can set it to draw 10 or 11 or 12 amps, whatever number you're comfortable with on your 14 gauge wire. If you set it for only 8 amps, it would still charg...

Re: Pretty Good Level 2 EVSE for Less Than $200

I thought I shouldn’t continuously run more than 12A on 14 gauge wire. I’ll have a look. Not sure how comfy I am messing around with the circuit breaker panel yet. I figured running a new 240V line would be pricey as they’d have to cut the drywall to run a new wire. Plus I’d need an emergency cut of...
