  1. NEMA 14-50 extension cord for OEM Charger

    DIY And How To
    Browsing through Amazon and seeing a few 50A extension cords with cut wire (so you can attach a female NEMA 5-15 adapter). https://www.amazon.com/Conntek-14302-Generator-Power-30-Foot/dp/B00268VSJ6/ https://www.amazon.com/Mophorn-Generator-Extension-N14-50P-Portable/dp/B07WF2TKKD/...

  6. DCFC, 80%, and Finalizing

    Charging and Batteries
    I used a 24KW Chargepoint DCFC today and noticed the Bolt had the time est for getting to 80% and once it reaches 80%, it goes into Finaizing mode. I then stopped the charge on the Chevy app, disconnected, and left. Question: Is this the default behavior on all DCFC? Or will leaving it...

    Charging and Batteries
    If the electronics are in place and some have used it fine for years, then it's probably certifiable. Not been (evaluated and) certified is definitely different than failing certification. ... for legal reasons, YMMV. ;)
  8. Trying to understand the max charge setting

    Charging and Batteries
    Because while you are adding air, the pressure is higher. You have to take the measurement when you stop pumping. Real life case, I have a air pump that can stop at set mark. Had it set for 38 psi and it stops when the reading hits 38 psi but then drops to 36 psi. So, I had to set it to 40...

    As far as know, the Bolt never had a car fire while the Tesla and Hyundai/Kia both had fires.
  10. Battery degradation......a chemist who’s confused.

    Charging and Batteries
    In other posts, there was a mention of charging being about 85% efficient on either L1 and just a tad better in L2. So it would take about 70KWh to charge 60KWh.

    The EV Lounge
    For long trips, some people with gas cars rent another gas car for the trip. Reasoning include that they can 1) rent a bigger vehicle, 2) reduce wear/tear in their personal vehicle, and 3) ensure they have a late model car that'd be less likely to have problems on the road. 1) Speaks to the...
  12. DCFC tapering at 125 amp station

    Chevy Bolt EV Videos
    Adding the charge rate picture... this definitely does not match my experience charging at a 24KW station. I started charging at around 35% SOC and it charged at 22KW then it dropped to 20KW for most of the charge and finally bumped up to 22KW again when around 70% or 75%. I ended the charge...

    Thanks all for the tip on ensuring the 12v battery is charged. Just checked my car and it was kind of low. Got it on my charger now. Good thing I bought the charger with a AGM/Standard switch! I guess I'll be charging the 12v once a month as a good habit. Given that low 12v could cause so...

    I do miss Adaptive Cruise Control that is missing on the Bolt. No idea why, all the electronics needed is in place. Hoping Chevy will provide ACC as a free update in future.
