Re: Request Battery Heating/conditioning To accelerate fast charge in cold climate

up north , USA & Canada , we cant get fast charge to reach 50kw without 30+minutes battery heating thus take more time and cost $ more : Any member here willing to suggest a software modification to GM so we can get a conditioning button ? I'm not sure this is going to save you any money. Won't...

Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

With the continued expansion in the number of of charging stations, I've found myself using PlugShare's filter to select the station providers of my liking. This will become more of a factor as time goes on and, at least around here in the SF Bay Area, gone are the days of being desperate for ANY c...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

I have recently experienced full charges mile Ranges of 261, and most recently 278. Should I be concerned that the battery may be "overcharging" thus impacting expected life of battery ? Nope. You are seeing increasing numbers because you are driving increasingly more efficiently. The car...

Re: "Free" heat in cabin

TIP: Turn off the “heat/cool” button 5 or 6 minutes before reaching your desrination to save energy. You might as well use up that “stored” hot water, and no use parking with a hot water tank, unless you will be parked for only a few minutes. Yes! I do this too. It's probably a minor savings, but i...

Re: Problems, Bugs, Weird Stuff, Glitches, Concerns Here

I cannot imagine sitting in the car at a QC for over two hours. I'm not surprised that Chevy didn't plan for this use case.

Was there really nothing nearby to do while you waited? I think that's the bigger problem. QCs need to be placed where you can do something while your car charges.

Re: DCFC's come to Interstate-5... finally!

Excellent news!CA is the epicenter of EV adoption in the US, and you are only just now connecting LA to SF. Actually I have been driving up to Northern California using Hiways 101 or 99 up to this point. But now we have access the the "diagonally" routed Interstate 5 that avoids slowdowns...

Re: DCFC's come to Interstate-5... finally!

Hopefully just teething issues. I am willing to give them a little time to sort it out and get better. But I feel you. Nothing is worse than expecting a QC to be ready for you only to find that it is out of order and you have to go somewhere else. Especially if that "somewhere else" is L2...

Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

I'm confused by this new pricing scheme. EVGo raised their rates just as EA is about to complete their first round of a massive QC network. Sure, EA is more expensive, but they are also 3X the charging rate. EVGo's pricing had been somewhat in line with EA's, but now they are less competitive. In sh...
