Re: My experience with the Grizzl-e EVSE that we bought

I seems to recall that several years ago Enel bought the very small eMotorWerks, (maker of JuiceBox). The experience might not be the same these days, since a multi-national and a small local business just don't run the same way.

Re: First successful charge for new 2020 Bolt Please read

I would say that is true for most charging networks - use their app. While with EA it is almost required (their CC kiosk issues are notorious), it is useful to have the app for ChargePoint and EVgo (for example). At a minimum you can see which fast chargers are in use and which are available for you.

Re: Should i be concerned with battery degradation?

Using nitrogen is a gimmick. Yes, it leaks out slightly more slowly, but if you check your tires once every 2-3 months, why pay $30-$50 for it? Air is already almost 80% nitrogen.

Re: Towing behind RV/ regenerative charging

You might want to do some web searches - I seem to recall at least one person saying that the emergency brake auto-turned-on while towing his Bolt, and that it is recommended to disconnect the Bolt's 12V battery when towing to prevent this.

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...
