Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

Of course, each battery chemistry has different care practices, but only NiCD requires full cycles each time to avoid capacity loss. This is due to the physical crystal growth and dissolution that occurs when the battery is cycled. While detrimental to calendar life, a lithium ion battery won’t lose...

Re: What Other EV's Have You Driven?

Alex, look into OpenPilot. It’s a hardware kit you can add and enable some self-driving capabilities, somewhat on-par with Tesla Autopilot. It plugs into the camera behind the mirror. Don’t know if it counts, but I took a ride in a Model S P100D early this year, including a few attempted Ludicrous l...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

The longer we drive it the more impressed I am. In every respect including fine details such as windshield wipers that, unlike most, sweep close to 100% .. nary a missed square inch of glass. There are some engineers at GM justly proud … The battery fire issue risk… requiring us owners to err on th...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

If I buy new, I’d go for the Y. As it is right now, used are going $10,000 above new prices out this way. The Model 3 is going for new prices. I have a lead on a well-taken care of 3 that has a good service history (which is currently high on my priority list due to friends with the S and X having a...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

My local dealers actually have a fair number of EUVs on the lot, but can’t currently sell them because of the recall. Once batteries come in, they’ll be able to. The chip shortage affects Super Cruise vehicles (I’ve yet to see a Super Cruise EUV). Keep us posted on your experiences with the Outlande...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Let’s hope so. This is maybe also a good lesson on battery manufacturers to not cut corners. This recall is costing the joint venture almost $2 Billion, so there’s hoping that LG is doing it right this time.

Re: Hatched a Tesla

So, through a fun series of events, I have a Model X P100D sitting in the driveway tonight instead of the Bolt. 8-)

It’s actually a loaner while my friend has his Tesla worked on. We switched cars for the night on his offer.
