Re: Neutrik Powercon True 1 connectors

Hi Folks, A portable cord with a 300V rating is usually labeled SJ for Service Junior. SO cord carries a 600V rating and has a thicker overall jacket, and maybe thicker insulation on the conductors as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_cord One thing I look for when buying wire to build ca...

Re: Neutrik Powercon True 1 connectors

Hi Joe and Don, Joe, thanks for the link! I knew somebody would wonder about the Powercons! As Don noted, the no-exposed-pins part is a notable plus for me. In the audio world I work with everything from Edisons to camloks to installing breakers and tying in. Safety is the first priority. While futu...

Neutrik Powercon True 1 connectors

Hi Folks, I just got an advanced OpenEVSE kit. Chose this one because it is dual voltage, amp rate can be set as needed, has timer or killowatts selection. It will be dialed down to 16A for Maeve. I have a 20A, 240V outlet out where the car is parked, with about 50' of 10ga buried wire feeding it. T...

Re: XS Power 12V battery

Hi Folks, I've been doing some 12V battery research. Safety first: Current Lithium batteries really do not do well when charged below freezing. Imagine it is 5 degrees below freezing. With our I-MiEVs, the 12V battery turns on some systems, and brings the main battery online. Pretty quickly circuitr...

Re: Fuse location for parking lights in 2012 ES

Hi Steve, I got your message. I'm sure I saw the parking light fuse listed somewhere, but cannot find it! The fuse information has the following note: "The table above shows the main equipment corresponding to each fuse." This makes me think that the parking lights may be doubled up with s...

Re: Fuse location for parking lights in 2012 ES

Hi Lithim, If you are sitting in the driver's seat, the fuse box you need to access is under the dash, just forward of your left knee. Press the tab and pull the cover. There's a fuse puller clipped inside the cover. There's one fuse for both the left and right bulbs. The fuses are color-coded, and ...

Re: XS Power 12V battery

Hi Joe, Thanks for the link sfn all the info! We don't sit in the car with the radio on, and it doesn't sit for more than a day or two. My wife named our I-MiEV Maeve. Last night when starting and going to READY, the RBS and MOTOR icons lit up and stayed on. Turning off, shifting out of Park and bac...

XS Power 12V battery

Hi Folks, Has anybody found a 12V AGM 151R battery for the I-MiEV? Like the I-MiEV, our 2008 Honda Fit specifies a 151R and I was easily able to fit this battery in it's place: https://4xspower.com/shop/12v-agm/s-series/s975 It is only rated for 215CCA while the 151R spec calls for 370CCA. It is 7.8...

Re: 2014 i-miev with quick charge

Hi WMC,

Thanks for the link!

I was hoping it would tell me how to get USB audio from my phone out the speakers, but there's no mention of this.
But now I do know how to set the clock!

Thanks and good health, Weogo

Re: 2014 i-miev with quick charge

Hi Folks, We had Carmax deliver the car from Atlanta to Greenville, SC, and we went and bought it yesterday. Pretty much looks new. The original owner's manual is missing, and Carmax said they will reimburse us for buying one. ) Anybody know of a good source? Carmax sold it with 'all original equipm...
