Re: Porsche Taycan

"The Taycan has charge ports in the two front side sections of the body. The vehicle can be charged on both sides using alternating current (in most markets), on the right-hand side it can also be charged using direct current." -- https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products/taycan/charging-18...

Re: Blink Charging Network

I got the "Pro" emails, but I didn't see any benefit to me (only a benefit to Blink), so I've ignored them. There's only one Blink station around here that I've ever used (the local Ikea). I also own a broken Blink EVSE that sits in my garage. :) (It was broken when I bought it. I hoped I ...

Re: Replacement windshield wiper fluid resevoir cap

So, I bought a 3D printer the other day, and I actually did print a wiper cap. Not that any of the existing models were compatible, but I took one and scaled down the diameter. It took a few iterations to get it right, but it's on now: https://cdn.thingiverse.com/assets/d8/bd/35/a5/83/wipercap.jpg U...

The thing about the rear headrests is, the back seats can't lay flat if they're in. That's probably why they were taken out of yours, although of course they should've been put back prior to sale.

Re: An I-MiEV in Parade Magazine

Of course the photo they used is of a Euro-spec triplet at a Euro charging station, with the slender license plate blurred out! I see that so often, I think the news outfits must have it filed under stock footage of EVs, ever since 2010 or so. I see it more than I ever saw i-MiEVs in real life in t...

Squishy shifter

A weird problem has hit my i-MiEV in the last few days -- the shifter makes a kind of "wet" sound. It still works, and the feel isn't really different. It's not consistent, and may even have cleared up today, but it still concerns me.

Re: CCS/SAE

I felt like I had an old fashioned car there. I wouldn't say that, but, it's true that CHAdeMO was the standard on two of the earliest of the "modern" (2011-) EVs in the U.S., and is unlikely to be seen on many more going forward. That's not because it's technically inferior, but CCS has ...

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

A single 14-50 socket near the garage door makes the most sense, if you're going to go to the trouble to have an electrician install anything. With a proper home made wye pigtail, you could easily plug two EVSE's, either L1 or L2 or one of each into that single socket. Maximum versatility, minimum ...
