Re: Battery usage time calculation

Gencis, Before answering the question, let's have a look at your loads. If I understand you correctly, you would like to use a 12v battery to power a 220vac inverter which will drive a 1800W steady-state load. Your inverter is rated for 1500W but provides a 3000W short-term peak power which, for exa...

Re: iMiEV in 2021!

I had misread the year of your car and just erased a post, and have edited the following a number of times in succession. Sadly, the 29.9Ah is probably accurate, as Ah is independent of State of Charge %. While this i-MiEV will be perfectly usable for short daily runs for a radius of ~25km from home...

Re: Dealer sez I need "rear motor fluid service"

tedcloak, welcome to the forum. I'm going to try to avoid commenting on the dealership model and their profit centers. If you took the car in for a 'checkup' then presumably they looked under it and performed at least a cursory inspection. Looking at the 2012 Mitsubishi Motors i-MiEV Warranty and Ma...

Re: Power loss after charging Peugeot Ion

So, theferdies, if I understand you correctly you have ONLY used CHAdeMO (dcfc) for charging your car. Presumably, the car stops charging when the level reached 13-14 bars and never reaches 100% charge? If I were the battery, I would say OUCH! Charging using CHAdeMO is very hard on the batteries. Co...

Re: iMiEV in 2021!

Looking good to me. This car contains the improved LEV50N cells and the CHAdeMO quick-charge port with associated battery cooling/heating system. I *think* the exterior mirrors are heated and it may also contained the redesigned OBC/dc-dc.

Re: factory looking clock on the dasboard - DIY

Here's how you make it show up:... wmcbrine, thank you for that. So, using imgur , to make an image show up we not only need to encase it with the Img brackets but prefix the imgur site URL with "i." after the two forward slashes, and provide a ".jpeg" suffix. I *think*, in foll...

Re: factory looking clock on the dasboard - DIY

Tiborx8, that's a very attractive modification!

I don't know why the picture doesn't show up using the Img brackets, so I added the URL for the picture itself to your post.

Re: VW ID.4 EV

Charging port on the right-rear like our i-MiEV (best location IMO). How do you figure?... wmcbrine, I agree that the front port location is good and am primarily dismayed by it becoming prevalent on the left side of the car. Thought I'd start a separate topic about this here and welcome further co...
