Re: Duosida EVSE

11pm


9 bars charged in 5 hours. Sure it could really be 8.5 bars. maybe its 9.5 bars.

Not if you're charging an iMiEV - Our cars won't trip a 15 amp breaker on either 120 or 240 volts

So then you know how many amps its drawing?

Re: Duosida EVSE

This helps a lot. Just to repeat and rephrase so I know I got this: The people who affix the AC plug be it a 15a or 20a are required by code agreement to set the square wave duty cycle down 20% from the max for that type of plug. Thus a 15A plug dictates a 12A duty cycle wave and a EVSE with a 20A ...

Re: Duosida EVSE

That's still within normal expectations. We may see that bars/hour will increase as the packs degrade. For example, my 2nd car (Koorz) can recover bars faster than Bear (my primary car), although it isn't actually charging any faster. It's just that each bar represents less energy. Bear got a new b...

Re: Duosida EVSE

The i-MiEV tends to stay about .5 amps below the pilot signal (if EVSE signals 12 amps, the car pulls 11.5). Even with that, the car maxes out at 14 amps, so it wouldn't trip the breaker immediately (although it should after about an hour as that is higher than the 80% de-rate). 5 bars in 4 hours s...

Re: Duosida EVSE

Yes I totally agree with your conclusion that you are charging at around 13A. A killawatt box is under $30. It is useful all around your house to chase problems or control consumption, not just to measure your car charging. What we don't know is how or why your new EVSE has set itself to 13A. The d...

Re: Duosida EVSE

Your EVSE is telling the car it's OK for the car to draw 16 amps! - If you plug it into an outlet which cannot supply 16 amps, when the car sets it's charger to draw 16 amps, something bad is about to happen . . . . Don Since I am charging on a circuit that has a 15 amp breaker and I am not blowing...
