Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Another update! I'm happy to report that now the car does charge from zero to 16 bars non-stop. The original Panasonic 50Hz "16A" EVSE cable/charger, had issues or was interrupting the charge due the frequency difference (we are a 60Hz country). From 0 (no Turtle) to 16 bars, I managed to ...

I had to pay another 50 USD of taxes, but now this is done electronically with the "Correios" thru the web. From purchase to receiving it at my door, it took 15 days. Neat! Best rnlcarlov, USD 92 ! Nice price. But didn't you have trouble with customs? At least here stuff from China gets st...

The car is doing really great! What a joy! Check the traveled distance + range left, considering that did it all on São Paulo's chaotic and hilly stop n' go traffic (70%) and the rest of it on express lanes at ± 60km/h. http://cgauer.dyndns.org:4444/miev/RR01.jpg http://cgauer.dyndns.org:4444/miev/R...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Had no chance to do a full charge from empty yet. I had still 8 bars left when I started, still it pumped 6.8kW. The original EVSE had issues or simply was derated. It never went beyond 5-8A... Best Folks, I just came back from US and brought a nice JuiceBox Pro 40A... I must say that the original 2...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Guys, for the sake of the charger/DC-DC longevity, ideally how many amps should I pump out of my eMotorWerks JuiceBox L2 EVSE? 8A it barely gets hot... Maxed out, 16A it gets pretty hot... It can be set as low as 5A or perhaps even less. Efficiency shouldn't be as good on really low rates, right? Be...

Folks, I just came back from US and brought a nice JuiceBox Pro 40A... I must say that the original 240V 50Hz EVSE had some issues... Not only it never charged close to the stated 16A but it also sometimes interrupted the charging process well before the the battery was full. had to unplug and replu...

Indeed, 7 came, but 4 went back to Japan. I do know the owner of a 2012 North America Speck (bulky bumper). Best Hey! Yes we do! Three of them. Two between the city of São Paulo and Campinas and one at the university of São Paulo, broken, but I'll try to fix it. PlugShare indeed! Works best for us. ...
