Re: Question: Ever been ICE'd?

I would think you could have talked to the mall security to have them towed. They should have a tow away signed to discourage people from parking there in the first place. 1) depends on state law (in the US) - and not all states HAVE a law 2) spot has to be *properly* signed - not just signed. For ...

Re: Test drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas

And EVgo just (in the past few weeks) added another CCS/Combo (dual CCS/CHAdeMO) charger in Victorville, making that drive a lot less stressful anyhow (although one of them seems to be limited to 100A).

Re: Using EVExtend on the Bolt EV for emergency 120V up to 1,500 watts

Oh, and personally, if I were *expecting* to use this at least once every 2 years (I've only had ONE power outage of about 45 mins in the past 10 years - I don't live in "storm country") then I would probably have a hefty 12V lead-acid (pickup truck) battery in the garage with the capabili...

Re: Using EVExtend on the Bolt EV for emergency 120V up to 1,500 watts

I am assuming the OP has no commercial relationship (except as a satisfied customer) with the company in question (based on previous posting history). That's always a good thing to point out when mentioning a product on a forum. The idea of (and discussions about) using a Bolt EV for emergency power...

Re: Bolt EV on Hawaii 5-0

Not the first time the Bolt has been featured in the show. Also, CBS seems to be an advertising vehicle (pun intended) for Chevrolet - their shows have lots and lots of Chevys.

Re: My bolt is completely dead

In my area, there are several places that will do a free "load test" on a battery. One of them is a parts store (AutoZone) and another is AAA - roadside service (but that's when you have a battery problem *right now*). Do you have a voltmeter available? If so, you might want to check the b...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

If you *bought* (but financed - i.e., took out a loan to buy) the vehicle, the "interest" isn't included in the "out the door" price. Above, "bolt2018" listed her/his Out of the door cost as $41,744 with NO INTEREST listed. If you add in your "$3,811 Interest"...

Re: My bolt is completely dead

Guess I've joined the my battery died club! Came out this morning, and it was at 0v! Called for a tow to dealer to have them swap it out, and threw it on a battery charger while waiting. Got it up to 12v and 10% capacity before they showed up. Getting it up to a "usable" voltage (12V? 11....
