Re: Charging two i-Mievs

I've been looking at Clipper Creek's website, and I'm intrigued by the new HCS-D40P Plug-in Dual Charger: https://store.clippercreek.com/new/dual-ev-charging-station-nema-6-50-plug I'm not impressed by the price, since it's more expensive than two chargers that do pretty much the same thing. But it'...

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

Hi Don,

That's an interesting idea. Alas, their website is down--and it's not clear when they'll be back up again.

Cheers,
Toby

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

Hi Toby, IF that is the ONLY outlet on that breaker, AND it has 12ga wiring, an electrician could easily convert it to 240V, 20A(derated to 16A) using the existing 12ga wiring. The white neutral wire would be marked at each end with red tape and labeled HOT. At max charge rate our Maeve pulls about...

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

Thanks Don! I think that I'm going to add a Clipper Creek L2 charger. It'll make it possible to pre-heat one of the cars in the morning, as well as getting a faster charge when needed. I was hoping that I didn't need to call an electrician, but I think that this will be the most flexible and best ap...

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

Thanks kiev! Seems like the best solution is just to add other circuit.

Charging two i-Mievs

After a couple of years of enjoying our first i-Miev, we just bought our second one. So, now we need to charge them, hopefully at the same time. I've mostly been using the 8-amp option on the charger, which works great overnight. With a second car, the easiest option seems to be to just plug both of...

Re: new owner question

I didn’t notice that my iMiev handled any differently than other cars I have driven. Might be worth having it checked.

Re: Remote & Heater

Yep, charging while at work. Lots of power for the heater, but no way to access it! I wish that I had a closer place to park.

Remote & Heater

I really wish that my iMiev's remote could be used to set a timer for the heater. I park too far away from my office for to use the remote, so I can't pre-heat the car before driving home. If anyone has any ideas on how to make this work, I'd love to hear them!

Cheers,
Toby

Re: new program for monitoring charge readings

I've been a little busy lately, but I'm going to test this again ASAP. Thanks for the reminder!
