Clipper Creek Level 2 charger deal.

Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:06 pm

I know we've recently had a pretty large influx of new i-MiEV owners showing up, so I figured I'd share this bit of news. Looks like Clipper Creek is offering a "March Madness" sale

Question for iMiEV owners of the Clipper Creek EVSE: has the compatibility issue been fixed and does it work perfectly with the Remote?

Regarding the Clipper Creek Level 2 charger:

Received a notice from Mitsubishi today titled: Customer Satisfaction Campaign SC-13-001. Notice dated February, 2013.

It is for vehicles built from 10/28/2011 thru 9/20/2012

It specifically relates to "The current internal software programming for the EV-ECU is incompatible with the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment charger produced by Clipper Creek."

Hope this helps.

I certainly hope they will have an update to fix this.

The issue has been fix in the IMiEV to resolve the compatibility problem.
But you will probably need to visit your Mitsubishi dealer to have the vehicle software updated.

Just got the same note as Lithim, and further down on the page it states that you can go to your dealer and they can do a download to fix it. Should have checked my mail first...

Update should take about half an hour.

Most of us by now are aware of the Clipper Creek compatibility software update. My question specifically is for iMiEV owners of the Clipper Creek EVSE: does the L2 EVSE work perfectly (i.e., every time) with the Remote - both in setting the timers and climate controls without a single 'error'?

JoeS, I've received the same letter just 3 days ago. I had already had the update applied during my annual maintenance, so I assume they just sent it to everyone, regardless.

As for the update and it's effects, as of right now i'm plugged into a Clipper Creek. I tried operating the Remote while sitting in the car, and it SEEMS to work just fine. I can send multiple commands, basically just push as many buttons as I want, and no scary Yellow :!: over a car light on the dash.

I'll keep trying it throughout the day, just to get more data points, but so far so good. If only my Wattstation was working so well... :(

iDriver, thank you for your update. Good to know for those interested in the very good discount presently being offered by Clipper Creek. I don't suppose the Wattstation issue has been fixed with the Clipper Creek fix? With my L2 SPX Xpress, I randomly get errors using the Remote when setting charge times or pre-heat/pre-cool - sometimes they 'take' immediately, sometimes they 'take' on the second or third button-push, and sometimes no amount of button-pushing does any good. This is in contrast with the Mitsu L1 EVSE which works perfectly every time.

Joe,

I have the same issue with having to "send" my command more than once, usually. This has not changed with the Clipper Creek upgrade (I have an Avcon charger, fwiw).
