Re: Electrify America rolls out new app and prices

Let's hope they can get the bugs worked out of their chargers. I have tried about 15 different EA chargers and only 3 worked! I think it would be useful for Spark EV and Bolt EV drivers to post their experiences on this forum so we all can see if EA is making progress or not. When the chargers work...

Re: DCQC charging rates

I said about 15 miles, not 15 minutes. That included a brief stint on the Mass Pike. I have been driving EVs for about 5 years, and over 50K miles. The battery pack wasn't too cold to take 50kW. The problem is the wimpy EVgo unit. Oops, sorry about misreading that. But, that implies that your 15 mi...

Re: DCQC charging rates

I used an EVgo unit (eastbound on Mass Pike, near Exit 13) and only got around 22kW, which is pretty disappointing. Very likely due to a cold battery. And remember, the battery temperature changes slowly so it might be 45F outside when you charge but the pack itself may be colder from spending the ...

Re: DCFC Stations Bakersfield to the Sierra Nevada East Side Coming

Thanks Jeff. I saw that on your web site. I can't seem to find the map on EA's own site. Where do they hide it? It’s linked as a resource on the January 28, 2019 press release at: https://www.electrifyamerica.com/news-updates When it was first posted it on January 28 it had multiple errors. I point...
