Re: Any tips to damaging the main battery?

I don't feel bad about it in the absolute slightest. Warranty work keeps my fellow technicans employed. I am certain our dealership generates as much revenue in warranty work as retail work.

Re: Supplemental cooling for the charger.

I was shocked, I tell you, I was shocked, as up until now I had considered the engineering on our i-MiEV to be excellent.

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger, DC-DC Converter

In case anyone is interested, an expensive portable CHAdeMO unit may well be cheaper than a new charger from Mitsubishi, and at least offer the option of charging at home (or having along on long trips) while troubleshooting the broken charger or looking for a used replacement.
