Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

My point about the numbers and scientific method is that they are useless if you are trying to use them to prove something that does not match what you are actually observing with simple repeated observation. Especially when you also write in a way that sounds condescending. You asked how I calculat...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

I'll admit it - I'm super happy for you (and super envious too!) that your car can charge at 4.3Kw (3X the 1.44 Kw the stock EVSE does) Sure wish mine could do that. Empirical evidence is unbeatable . . . . when it's accurately documented Don Again with the numbers! I didn't state any of that! Just...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

It doesn't - You can't 'measure' how fast the car charges by attempting to judge how 'many bars per hour' you *think* you're getting Volts X amps = Watts. 120 volts @ 12 amps is exactly half of what 240 volts @ 12 amps is. The charger can draw a maximum of 3.3 Kw, which divided by 240 equals 13.75 ...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

At work on the Blink charger I get right around 3 bars per hour. At home on the Amazing-E I get about 3.2-3.3 bars an hour. Scientific measurements if ever I heard any! :lol: Don I don't get your deal Don. Why do you not think my measurements are accurate? Repeating the same charge every day and me...

Re: Admin: Posting Pictures on this Forum

I've been here for 6+ years and never posted a single photo - It's just incredibly more difficult than on any other site I frequent (where I do post photos). Just not worth the trouble here, sadly Maybe one day we'll join the 21st century here, but after waiting 6 years, I'm for sure not holding my...

Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

P.S. The guy who did 97 miles recommending B as the most efficient mode for Hypermilin. He simply doesn't know any better. B mode is only most efficient for "jack rabbit driving" because it reduces friction braking in the driving style. Hypermiling is the antithesis of "jack rabbit d...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

It boils down mostly to less overhead losses. The car's systems pulls around 600 watts when the high voltage circuit is active. This is near half the power input of a level 1 charge, the other half actually making it into the pack. During a level 2 charge, you still have the 600 watt overhead, but ...

I've plugged each one in and set the timer and come back and then saw that there were more bars than before and how many mo...
