Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

Hi PBUI19, Can this battery be charged at below freezing temperatures? Does it freeze where you are? Lithium Titanate batteries can be charged below freezing, will likely be on the market before the end of the year. Thanks and good health, Weogo [quote="pbui19"]I am so tempted to try out t...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

I would love to see a big jump in battery life, capacity per pound/weight, use of easily available materials, faster charge times. An EV driving friend just retired last year from a career as an automotive engineer. He thinks we are approaching the limits of the laws of physics with currently availa...

Re: New Honda EV . Similar IMIEV idea!! It’ll work???!!!

Hi Folks, From the pictures it appears to be smaller inside than the I-MiEV. For me, the bigger volume is important. Any idea how much it weighs? The relatively light weight of the I-MiEV gives it a bit of a lower power draw going up and down the mountains that surround my house. (A LEAF weighs abou...

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Hi JoeS, "even though it could provide much more power, I personally wouldn't want to draw more than about 100W out of an inverter hooked up to our i-MiEV 12v battery (the car in READY), especially nowadays as our OBC/dc-dc is proving to be iffy." Ah, I see the light. For the EV expo I'm g...

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

PV1, Good point about the watts pulled by the car in READY for four hours. Across the street from the event there's a free 240V charger at the Ingles grocery store that will be getting me home! Or I could spend the big bucks on Chademo. Nice to have options. Pbui19, How long is that jumper cable? Fo...

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Hi Folks, Next month in Asheville there will be a Drive EV Day, in a parking lot with no AC power. I'm providing a small mixer, microphone, two-track interface and a couple self-powered speakers. The audio system will run off my 300W sine-wave inverter, connected to Maeve's 12V battery. At modest le...

Re: "New" 2018 IMIEV. Paddle shifters on it. Cheers

On the shifter, past B, is C .
What's C for?
Ok, I found it online:
"the C-position for comfortable driving in the suburbs"

OpenEVSE

Hi Folks, I got an OpenEVSE Advanced Kit, assembled and installed it. Now, if needed, we can charge at better than three times the factory 120V charger speed. ) Went with this model because it can use 120V/240V. ) Can be set to 6A at 120V up to 40A at 240V. ) Small enough that it can go in the car f...

Re: Headlights

Hi Folks,

Zombie thread revival...

Our low beams are pretty low.

Has anybody in the US modified their headlights for remote control?

I found the manual adjustment instructions in this thread.
Is there a service bulletin online about this?

Thanks and good health, Weogo

Re: Options for repairs when service is now sparce and distant?

Hi Folks, Our 2014 has six months left on the original warranty. Nearest authorized service center is about 75 miles, which I could do with a stop on the way. Another Mitsubishi dealer is about 25 miles away, though they are not electric-certified. But they can get parts. We have a really good local...
