Re: Regen question

Since the brake pedal ALSO causes regen,, how can it be less effective than one pedal mode or the regen paddles? If I slow down with regen, how can it matter which way the car is told to regen? I suppose that if I were to brake hard enough to actually engage the brake pads that would be a differenc...

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

My Honda Fit EV was plugged in to charge to 100% immediately after arriving home (the worst case scenario according to pundits). We did this for close to 5 years with no noticeable range loss. We did notice a couple of mile drop when new tires were put on after ~4 years, so we did maybe lose a few ...

Re: First Use of JDapter Stub for Tesla Destination Charger to Chevy Bolt

I'm still waiting for Tesla to open their supercharging network to all EVs, and sell adaptors for CCS and CHAdeMO :lol: I'm not holding my breath. Tesla SuperChargers have a tendency to be full, because so many Teslas have free (or free up to a limit) SuperCharging, so their owners tend to use them...

Re: California Lags in DC Fast-Charging Station Density for Electric Vehicles

As an aside, 24 kW "fast" DC chargers are not very desirable on road trip corridors, since that gives about a 1.5:1 ratio of highway driving to charging time. 50 kW would give about 3:1, while Tesla drivers may be able to get 120 kW from Tesla SuperChargers for up to a 7.5:1 ratio. But not...

Re: Aeroshutter

Perhaps those shutters only close at high speeds, so that it is difficult to see them closed unless you mount a camera to your car and aim it to see where the shutters are?
