Re: problem with original L1 EVSE

Agreed Don. The original EVSE trips a GFCI when I test it with a ground fault, but just shows a red error as it should, when plugged into a non-GFCI outlet. It charged an Outlander PHEV normally overnight at 8 amps, so I'm about ready to proclaim the EVSE good, will do another full recharge at 12 am...

problem with original L1 EVSE

I'm evaluating a friend's 2016 L1 EVSE, the version that has a button for adjustment from 12A to 8A. She claims it cuts out and the car barely takes any charge. the car charges normally from their L2 unit, a Duosida. So far, the L1 unit charges other vehicles fine in testing for an hour or two, but ...

Re: Replaced My Pack!

Thx Don, My OBC failed, so a dealer is replacing it with the updated design. They won't replace a functional OBC, and want to see the correct diagnostic code still being generated. A statement that I cleared the codes while trying to diagnose and restart the charger was sufficient to get the work ap...

Re: Replaced My Pack!

Indeed, Mandrake- Point Proven as Expected, but not something that bothered me enough to purchase an expensive tool that I might need only once.
My car is currently at the dealer getting a warranty replacement of the onboard charger.
I'll see about having them do the recalibration.

Re: Replaced My Pack!

Measured pack capacity continues to climb slowly with use. My MUT3 clone now recognizes 33.3 Ah of capacity on the 2012 salvaged pack. I’m doing a lot of driving, as much as 170 miles per day and 3 to 4 DCFC sessions on weekdays and plugged in on L2 the rest of the time... Cell #38 came back into li...

Re: Need to purchase obc unit for 2012 i-miev

The dealer will require that the correct error code be shown by OBDII, and that the 20 amp fuse be blown. I’m actually having to re-install the failed charger in order to get one of the new design, rather than roll the dice on my current junkyard unit with the original defect waiting to surface...

Re: Using a second pack in parallel

Thanks 1kaspars. Too bad that both the Croatian 10 kWH range extender and the RAV 4 battery trailer that’s now for sale https://www.ebay.com/itm/EV-Range-Extending-Trailer-Home-Solar-Energy-Storage-Battery-Pack-41kwh-/163196745088?nav=SEARCH are both significantly more costly than just staging a sec...

Re: USA i-MiEV Sales 2011-2017

The state of Washington just released data on current EV registration numbers. Out of over 50,000 EVs on Washington roads we appear to have 81 i-MiEV, Which is fewer than the 100+ BMW i8, but more than the 22 Fisher Karmas!

Re: Using a second pack in parallel

Here are examples of the sort of battery trailer I am proposing. First we have two RAV4 packs in parallel, so much more complex due to liquid cooling, etc. well done with lots of videos, just a bit verbose, so the first link is a succinct summary from Rich Rebuilds. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb7...
