Re: Charge: As soon as possible, or as late as possible?

I've sseen reports (by anal-retentive Bolt owners) who are tracking their battery capacity, and battery loss is 5-10% over a 18-month to 2-year period (over 40K miles - one was 70K miles).

Re: Did your dealership try to sell an extended warranty?

The other trick is to never, ever rent (or pick up) at the airport. First, the airport agencies pay the company for the privilege of being an exclusive provider at the airport so they can charge what they want, and often (usually) municipalities tack on extra taxes for airport rentals. I got in the ...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

{...} were expecting the discount to be up to 6K but dealer said through tears 2K was all they could manage. Yeah, well, many dealers are lying scumbags. One should always start by seeing what is available (prices, discount) on the internet, find the best deals within 200 miles, print them out, and...

Re: EV CHarging at home

Oh, do EVSEs have a fuse? Or are they required to actually limit current? I thought that they didn't limit the current they provide at all, that they are a cable that can be improperly used just as an extension cable can be misused.
