Re: All Folder Shuffle

... I’ll check

In the meantime, erase all the other folders?!? :D :mrgreen: :)

Have you tried pulling it out for 10 minutes and then plugging it back in?

Re: Driving in L uses More Energy?

Your battery was fully charged and hence it would not activate regenerative breaking

To avoid this problem, I set my maximum charge at home to 93%

I always drive in L (sometimes use the paddle as well) and the extra regeneration gives me more capacity/miles per charge.

Re: Extension cord use for 2020 Bolt

Does the Granny setting increase charging time? Yes. The 5 amp setting will increase charging time by a factor of 2.4 vs the 12 amp setting. Where does the term "granny" come from and what is its significance? Both my 2017 and now my 2019 Bolt EVs had a choice of 12A or 8A at 120v; I do n...

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?

Why do you do so much DCFC charging instead of L2 at home?
