Re: Extension cord use for 2020 Bolt

I had an electrician build me an 100 foot extension cord from 6 gauge wire for my Clipper Creek L2 plug in charger.

It’s all about doing it right.

Re: Really Flaky USB connection

My Sandisk 16Gb flashdrive works perfectly with all 6Gb of mp3 files on it. I just added a high output dual USB to the cigarette lighter port for faster charging and more power for when I am using Waze with other apps: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08JX444KV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_3G2F4HP5KQ9FK42F5C2...

Re: Mileage/charge limitation after using Electrify America

What year is your model?

Re: Final eSpark adventure; time to move into a Bolt EV

Did you buy your Bolt EV? The SparkEV and the Volt 1.0 and 2.0 were both incredibly engineered for their day and their purpose. They made it possible for the Bolt EV to be what it is today and the Bolt EUV to be released at the end of this Summer. GM has finally redeemed itself from the EV1 debacle ...
