Re: got one yesterday

I have the 8A /12A OEM , charged last night using 8A (14h), I was thinking the next time to do a charge using 12a and see how long will take But I need a 240v so I can charge at my job (I only have a 240v outlet in the job / garage) Charging rates are, roughly, 120vac 8A, four bars for five hours o...

Re: Always take an opportunity charge....

Jay, your writeup had me rolling on the floor! :lol: :lol: Excellent example, and all should heed the title. Yes, PlugShare is our best friend and I routinely post there just to provide feedback about a station's availability. Just last night I sipped at 6A 120vac at a motel in the middle-of-nowhere...

Re: got one yesterday

jafcorrea, congratulations for snagging a rare 2016! Did your car come with the 8A/12A Mitsubishi EVSE? Are you going to be installing 240vac? If so, do try to make it a NEMA 14-50 socket. Some more discussion, re-done since I saw jray3's post - Nice to see EVSEs continuing to drop in price, and I s...

Re: Dead Charger Repair, How To (Summary and Discussion)

kiev, thank you and skylogger and electronpusher and coulomb and jray3 and Quixotix and all the rest for the wonderful collaborative reverse-engineering investigations. Really appreciated! As far as the causes, especially power interruption - I think I may be in trouble, as for the last six years al...

Re: after a full charge how many miles supposed to show on the miev display?

Totally agree with Don.

jafcorrea, you're evidently in the SF Bay Area. I'll be back home in a week or so and if you still haven't bought your i-MiEV I'll be happy to let you borrow my CaniOn setup to measure the battery capacity of prospective cars.

Re: Hatched a Tesla

On the road again... exploring and visiting friends. From San Francisco Peninsula, up the coast to avoid the Interstate 5 road closure (fire) into Medford Oregon to retrieve wife, then back up the coast to Astoria, in Washington missed connecting with jray3 by one day, then over to Vancouver Island ...

Re: happy new owner

paxfamilia, congratulations! The seat heater switch was partially pushed in on my friend's i-MiEV when he bought it a few weeks ago. On your car, I'd be willing to bet that someone had simply jabbed the switch and it popped back out of its snaps and simply fell down behind the panel, with the wires ...

Re: Charging from 48V DC

dracekvo, similarly to you, I also have a 48v battery --> 4kW inverter to produce 240vac --> J1772 EVSE --> onboard charger --> i-MiEV battery pack. Haven't measured the 48v power draw to compare to CaniOn charging current&voltage readings, but I'm sure it's not very efficient. In my case, I alr...

Re: Any tips to damaging the main battery?

Hey guys (and gals), sorry, don't mean to offend anyone - I have an ethical problem with this thread. From the perspective of the manufacturer, their engineers did their best to design a battery management system to protect the battery so that Mitsubishi management could stick their necks out and co...
