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.

I was doing work (and some play) on my cell phone. The time went by pretty fast actually. Then “clunk” and eveything goes dark except for the cell phone attached to USB kept charging. I know the radio and probably the USB stays on for 10 minutes after YOU turn the car off.... until you open the door, but this was different. The radio went off. I didn’t wait 10 minutes to see if the USB would “time out”.

New “feature”?

I can turn on the radio in my Bolt without pressing the Start button. At all. (Key Fob was in my pocket.)

Previously known:
To roll down windows or use climate control, you can press and hold the start button for 5 seconds WITHOUT FOOT ON BRAKE PEDAL. This will NOT start the car (allow car to shift and move) so a passenger or child in the car can do this.

That's a nice feature. Thanks for posting
