Re: Turtle at Half Charge Under Load?!?!?!

Disturbing news about Mitsubishi's responses, not boding well for the future. Corporate change? Graveaxis, do you have some screenshots or photos of your most extreme cell voltage disparity readouts? Interested in knowing what those voltages are at what overall SoC? Does your tool provide a battery ...

Re: Do you have a charger remote control you DON'T use much??

Aerowhatt, I sent you a Private Message, and add my sincerest condolences to you. In answer to your question, keep the Remote with the car, as it adds value to the car itself.

Acensor, I may have a lead on a Remote and I'm trying to contact him. Will let you know if anything develops.

Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

Kenny, thank you for running those simulations. Interesting to me is how design tools have evolved over the years. Yes, count me in for a group buy (two plus one spare), although I'll probably hold off installing until after my warranty runs out as I'd like a new-design OBC from Mitsu. Re: clipped-i...

Re: Electrify America CHAdeMO Possible Issue

So, after a longer trip down the coast today in the i-MiEV, on the way home I decided to stop at the brand-new EA group of charging stations at the Bank of America in downtown Los Gatos. https://www.plugshare.com/location/193052 One J1772 station and three dual-port DCFC stations, only one of which ...

Re: Electrify America CHAdeMO Possible Issue

Before I took my car in to get repaired I had used the EA system for DCQC about about 20 times without issue. After getting it repaired it kept trying to initiate charging, but never succeeded and also would not release the holster taking about an hour each time before it released. Ben, were you on...

Re: 14" Wheels

... and be sure to experiment with tire pressures, recognizing that 'stock' is 36psi (248kPa). It's my subjective belief that higher pressures are conducive to better i-MiEV handling and range improvement, at the expense of some teeth falling out :roll:

Re: Electrify America CHAdeMO

Hi Ben,
I split your post away from the OBC thread, as you've presented a new possible issue for us. I've only used EVgo and ChargePoint and a few no-name CHAdeMO chargers, but have not yet tried EA with my i-MiEV (but I have successfully charged my Tesla on EA using the CHAdeMO adapter). Anyone?

Hey, a $5K i-MiEV matches your cost-effective Bolt metric! ($5K/62=~$80/mile) :geek:

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Simon and Kenny, thank you both for such wonderfully detailed information about fixing the OBC and thus making it easier for those of us who will have to face this in the future. :ugeek: Wishing you all the best as the moment of truth arrives today when you fire up the car :!: ....

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Anecdotally, in the last couple of years I've talked six friends into purchasing Bolts instead of PHEVs (one bought a Bolt after his i-MiEV was totaled), and none have experienced any issues. They all love the car! Even though the Hyundai Kona EV would be my "today's" vehicle of choice, I'...
