Re: Portable Charger?

You might be misunderstanding what the product is offering. There is no battery contained in this charging cord. You must plug into an existing 5-15 outlet to gain power for the charge. It is only "portable" in the sense that it packs up into a case for easy transportation in the trunk whi...

Re: Newbie. Waiting on my 2020 Bolt EV LT

Don't know your electrical rates; they are somewhat higher here in LA. When I first leased my 2017 Bolt EV, I was retired, had stopped driving Uber and would drive up to see a friend in Santa Cruz once every couple of months. My electric bill went up about $40 per month. When I started driving Uber ...

Re: Need help I cannot charge it at home with my 120-volt portable charge cord

As I recall, our Chevy EVSE's cannot be plugged into an outlet on. CFGI.

It's been a ghost town on this Forum for me; try asking your question at:

I'm curious. What specifically do you do to hypermile? Please share as many details as possible. I do some, but would love to add to my bag of tricks.
Please share your tricks, too!

Re: Used 2017 Bolt with 115,000 miles-need advice

I know your original post was a while ago, but I just thought I'd mention, as I understand it, after the recall replacement, your battery warranty is reset to the original 8 year, 100k miles. So, if you got a good deal, you just got a "new" Bolt for the price of a worn out used one:) You ...

Re: Battery Degradation with high mile usage

I drive Uber and last week I got a rider from LAX to DTLA to San Diego. I started the drive to San Diego with 10 extra miles on the GOM vs. the destination mileage listed on Waze (on my Apple CarPlay). These are the important variables to watch during the drive plus the amount of KwHs used on the ma...

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

Even your Niro EV comes with a non-optional DCFC. The Era of abusing new to EV owners with new EVs without a built-in DCFC charger is over! No manufacturer is making that mistake any more; not even GM: https://www.chevrolet.com/electric/blazer-ev?ppc=MICROSOFT_700000001814294_71700000097953783_5870...
