Shouldn’t make any difference at all.

Re: Community Question

Bought a Schneider online from Home Depot in 2012, still works great.

Re: Bolt EV Service Manual Is Here

One way to simulate the afterblow function is to simply shut off the a/c switch a few minutes before you leave the car and let airflow dry it out.

Re: WARNING: Recall firmware update can break your Bolt!

Could be the update. Could be the module. Could be your dealership.
Whatever, it sucks that you can’t drive it.
They should have Bolt loaners.

I’ve had all three updates done. No issues.

Re: What do they want to know?

My company got a free ChargePoint L2 using a DOE grant, and the deal was, they paid for install and any repairs (none so far, L2 is more reliable than QC), but also had to agree to a one year contract with ChargePoint at $300/month for monitoring, fee collection and remittances, and data reporting t...

Re: What do they want to know?

The trouble with ChargePoint is that they need to make money, and their model is a hard sell. Hosts might get a free DCFC because ChargePoint can arrange for grant money, but installation is on the host, and pricey, with a need for 480 volts. (Although there are 24 kW units that can run on 240 volts...

Re: What do they want to know?

Except they only install when they have a host. They’ll broker the equipment, but they don’t want to own any. They just want their exorbitant fees. So that leaves us EVgo mostly and a few Greenlots around here, maybe Blink in the West? It’s disappointing because ChargePoint has developed some good h...

Re: What do they want to know?

My favorite is always, “you mean it doesn’t take any gas at all?” Six years, and 3 BEVs and I still get this? On the plus side, the lack of demand makes negotiating easier. But c’mon ChargePoint, alter your business model a bit and install your own multiple unit super high powered stations like Tesl...
