Re: Flipper Zero remote?

I've kind of wondered that no one (?) has tried to duplicate the remote, since 1) it doesn't seem that sophisticated, but 2) it's crazy expensive to replace.

I don't recall hearing of this type of problem before. Does this mean it's going into turtle mode at 50% charge?!

Re: Aptera Petition to adopt Tesla Charging Standard

Hey, that's an interesting initiative! 👏🔌 Adopting the Tesla charging standard could simplify things for EV owners. It's like how a well-designed interior makes driving a pleasure. Hope the petition gains traction for a smoother charging experience! I didn't sign it and I don't support it, but it's...

In the Washington Post

An anonymous i-MiEV seen in passing, in an article about Joe Manchin: https://wapo.st/3OMJguu Captioned "An electric car charges in May at an Electrify America charging station in Waco, Tex." Third picture from the top. Direct link, in case it works: https://arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-wa...

Re: Can we get the NACS?

Just yesterday, I found the start of a series of YouTube videos by a guy who was going to attempt to do a CCS conversion on a Leaf. I should follow this up -- this is a different guy, with an external CCS to CHAdeMO adapter. Apparently, it works, but it's kind of at the proof-of-concept stage: http...

Re: Can we get the NACS?

... but since we're looking to retrofit NACS to the I-MiEV, the easiest way (if even possible) is to have a pair of NACS connectors on the car, one for AC, and one for DC. Yuck. I hope not. For my taste, I think first choice would be to have a fully-functioning (AC/DC) NACS port on one side, and ke...

Re: Can we get the NACS?

As for the protocol of DC charging, that's a whole different matter. But presumably, that's all part of the Tesla specification, which is presumably more open than CHAdeMO or CCS (as in, you presumably don't need to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy the NACS specifications). I dunno why y...

Doug DeMuro's YouTube i-MiEV review

I hesitate to post this, with its clickbait title, and much of the content. It's not as bad as the title, and he does say some true things, along with quite a few I take issue with. But, it's out there, so it belongs here.

Re: Can we get the NACS?

Just yesterday, I found the start of a series of YouTube videos by a guy who was going to attempt to do a CCS conversion on a Leaf. (That would get you most of the way to NACS, assuming the solution could be ported to an i-MiEV.) However, it seems he only got through part 0 and part 1, and that was ...

Re: researching best charging cables for 2012

The term you're looking for is "EVSE", although many people will (incorrectly) call them chargers. The i-MiEV will only charge at a maximum rate of 13.75 amps, so you can get away with a lower-end EVSE. I'm currently using this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W6YLRYN , $200 when I bo...
