Re: ClipperCreek support is awesome

I also have the -40 CC EVSE; it had a problem after 2 years. Like you guys, CC replaced my unit after ascertaining that the unit was broken. Great company, great product, great service!

Re: Garage Door Opener Recommendations?

The outfit that built my garage (30' X 30' pole barn) installed a pair of Chamberlin operators on the 2, 10' wide doors back in 2014. These are no doubt the low-end model, they have no WiFi, but did come with 2 fobs each. They have been flawless in operation. They're chain drive, I wouldn't necessar...

Gauging battery health

For someone wanting to buy a used Bolt, is there a way to guage battery health? Mileage alone wouldn't necessarily be a good indication; i recently watched a U-Tube video of a fella with a Bolt that has 100,000 miles on it. He claimed that his battery had lost only 9% of its original capacity. Simpl...

Re: Charge time finish

My 2017 has an HTR setting of either 'off' or 'on'. If it's 'on', the car charges to only 90%, when 'off', it goes to 100%.

I don't think it makes much difference in the failure to finish by the time set in the configuration.

Charge time finish

I've noticed that the car often takes longer to charge than it's supposed to: The other day, I set the HTR to "off', and the charge completion time to 7:30 AM. It wasn't done yet at 8:15. Today, with HTR 'on', charge completion time set to 10:00 AM, it wasn't finished at 10:15. Yet, it does fin...

first speeding citation in history

was for an electric car. It was a taxi in NYC. He was going 12 MPH in his electric car, where the speed limit was 8 MPH. The police officer was riding a bicycle.

Another first for electric vehicles!

This is according to the Today in History column in today's (May20) Monroe MI News.

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

FWIW: I did an inventory search for both the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Bolt. Turns out that the Toledo-area dealers seem to have some in stock: At least 3 Toledo Chevy dealers show a Bolt, all of the LT trim level, and the Leaf is available in Toledo and Ann Arbor. The AA dealer has always had sever...

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

Even the Bolt has availability issues. One guy in Frackville, PA on another forum says the Chevy dealer he'd been going to for over 32 years doesn't have any Bolts. When he asked a few years ago, he was apparently the 1st to ask. I asked him in Sept 2018 about whether there's been any change at tha...

What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

The question is in the title. A friend (who is convinced that EVs are absolutely not for him) seems to think that BEVs are available from the major auto manufacturers "anywhere". I'm thinking that compliance cars are sold in California and a few other places, but not in Flyover Country. I ...

Re: DCQC charging rates

Thanks for the info!

FWIW: I didn't notice the brand of charger, but it looked about the size of your first picture, but was horizontal oriented; IE: long dimension horizontal. It has a small window with a readout that tells you what is going on during the handshake phase, etc.

Nice pics!!
