Re: Duosida EVSE

So I was using my Duosida at home In my garage and also outside at my work. We had some excessive rain here in the Chicago area and my water proof (resistant) unit got under water apparently. When I got home the unit was faulting. I opened the ends with the o ring seals and shook a few drops of wate...

Re: Free Charging

I have a ChargePoint account. I have it filtered for free stations. I have three along my commute to work. One two miles away from my house. One exactly in the middle of my 29 mile trip and one 5 miles away from my work. I have hit all three station to make sure they are working. The one close to my...

Re: Duosida EVSE

I have been studying my 15A circuit situation today and realize there is more on the circuit than just the one outlet. I would need to pull a whole lot of wire to make the entire circuit comply with a new 20A breaker. Now I am thinking I need to run a totally new line. Ouch! When the i-MiEV first c...

Re: Duosida EVSE

The only thing Joe, is it can't really be drawing only 12A though right? Not at the rate my car is charging. Let's summarize - We know that the i-MiEV draws around 13A on 240vac. That is not the topic for this discussion, as there is no problem feeding the i-MiEV with the Duosida off either a 20A o...

Its not. I isolated it down to the single 15A breaker.

Re: Duosida EVSE

To summarize this so far: Justoneman is plugging a duosida rigged for level 1 120V into a 20A outlet which is downstream from a 15A breaker which is only barely warm after several hours. The extrapolated current draw based on how fast the car's gauge fills up could be 16A in fact? Why is breaker no...

Re: Duosida EVSE

9 bars charged in 5 hours. Sure it could really be 8.5 bars. maybe its 9.5 bars. OK, let's consider this - My rule of thumb (very coarse) is - 4 Bars/5hrs @ 8A 6 Bars/5hrs @ 12A Using this progression, 9 Bars/5hrs ==> 18A :o :shock: So, maybe 16A may not be too far off the mark as the max the car c...
