Re: Wireless CarPlay adapter

This is not for wireless charging. This device allows my iPhone to connect to Apple Carplay wirelessly, so I can keep the phone in my pocket. I was asking about this part of your previous post: " I also upgraded the wireless charging module in my 2017 so that my phone charges while it is conne...

Re: EV Battery Degradation Comparison Tool

But looking at the line for 2012 and 2013 LEAFs, that degradation looks like complete bullshit. Not necessarily... We know some Leafs in hot climates had really bad degradation. But that wasn't the case in other areas with cooler climates and places that were L2 heavy without a lot of Chademo. If t...

Re: EVGo announces a new partnership with GM for 5 year tripling of stations

Also, rentals don't preclude charging at home. Many rentals are single-family homes or duplexes around here. They aren't in NYC, or Chicago, or San Francisco. But my point was that you may not have access to 240V at a rental. Charging at 12A/120V is about 1.2W an hour into the battery (assuming aro...

Re: EVGo announces a new partnership with GM for 5 year tripling of stations

I feel like EVGo is pretty clueless as to EV drivers' actual needs. Today, 115 million Americans live within a 15-minute drive of an EVgo fast charger. This fact is practically useless. Unless you cannot charge at home, practically noone charges at a DCFC within 15 minutes of where they live! And i...

Re: Precipitous drop in fully charged range before 90% update

Relying on the "estimated range" is not a very good way to determine your battery capacity. The best way is to buy an "OBD2" dongle to plug into your car, and an app for your smart phone to read and interpret it. 2nd best is to calculate your capacity by doing a FULL charge, then...

Re: Need tips on traveling from Los Angeles to SF

Nice! TY for answering my dumb question that I should've asked myself a long time ago. Does anyone have any preference re: charging services? Personally, I prefer the reliability of ChargePoint , but the real answer is "all the companies with fast chargers along the roads you plan on using&quo...
