  1. My gripe about the rear-view mirror

    Chevy Bolt EV: Likes And Dislikes
    I'm an old as well (the 6x I mentioned in my post), and I understand what you're saying, but the post I was responding to claimed the use of reading glasses when not driving. If you don't have near field correction on at all, then the mirror and the DIC should be similar problem areas.

  3. My gripe about the rear-view mirror

    Chevy Bolt EV: Likes And Dislikes
    If you can't focus on the mirror because of compromised near field vision, how can you see the dashboard display, which is even closer? I wear glasses all the time, for distance vision (6x), and the only issue I had was training my eyes to hit the closer plane of focus.
  4. Lobby for free or discounted charging at Costco and Sams Club

    How To Lower Energy And Operating Costs On EVs
    I'm not sure I see that. Most lots that I'm familiar with that provide validation have controlled ingress/egress (either through human attendants or otherwise) and every vehicle has to pass through that portal has to be checked. Costco lots are already miserable to get in and out of, and many...
  5. Lobby for free or discounted charging at Costco and Sams Club

    How To Lower Energy And Operating Costs On EVs
    I'm a Costco member, and I go there much less often than I did when I had an ICE to fill up. Since I was there anyway to get gas, I really would go inside and shop. Now I only go to Costco when I have a specific need that I know Costco will serve best. Would that be true for charging? For...
  6. Phone mount for iPhone 11 Pro Max?

    Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    I have a proclip (the one that goes on the right side of the console), and attached a cheap magnetic mount (SCOSCHE MAGDMB MagicMount Universal Magnetic Mount Holder for Mobile Devices In Frustration Free Packaging, Black:Amazon:Car Electronics) to it. A metal disc is adhered to the back of...
  7. CA. requires units on chargers, not time.

    Charging Stations Discussion
    It would appear that the state of California isn't having that idea. The industry pushed back, but DMS said California law has already settled this issue:
  8. EV reserved parking and mild hybrids

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I thought this was interesting: https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-supercharger-iced-ford-mustang-towed-by-police/ Was hoping for a less biased source, but it'll probably be on jalopnik soon. The spots in question don't seem particularly attractive, appearing to be on the upper level of a parking...

  10. "The Expanse" on Amazon... who's watching?

    The EV Lounge
    I watched BSG, but it never hooked me like it did the others around our water cooler. Starbuck always managed to annoy me. I enjoyed SCC a lot. I also wound up liking Fringe quite a bit, after it got past the "Freak of the Week" phase and was more mythology/arc oriented. The abbreviated last...
  11. "The Expanse" on Amazon... who's watching?

    The EV Lounge
    You should be happy, they elided the whole "Elvi crushes on James" thread from the book. That was truly cringeworthy.

    Mi sasa. Im gut, keyá?
  13. Work Trip

    Charging and Batteries
    I left our Bolt in a carport in Woodside, CA for 15 days early last November, and I noticed no drop in the charge while we were away.
  14. I have had issues with DCFC, but not like this

    Charging Stations Discussion
    This was indeed on Thanksgiving in San Luis Obispo, CA, as reported here: https://jalopnik.com/heres-the-main-problem-with-teslas-supercharger-network-1840110802. Since there were as many chargers (plugshare reports 20x120KW, although the checkins reported slower charge rates) as there were...
  15. Wow, Jalopnik sure messed this up.

    The EV Lounge
    Being as I'm in California, my interest here is academic, but how do you vent exhaust gases from the heater? I found a number of articles detailing installs of parking heaters in EVs, and in most cases the installations looked a bit "Junkyard Wars".
  16. JuiceBox Pro 40 - $499.99 for Black Friday at Costco Online

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    While it's rare for me, I do appreciate the ability to adjust the TOU for the Juicebox from my phone easily. I travel a lot, and get a charge at the airport parking lot (included in the parking). I still need to make sure that I'll arrive at the airport with enough charge to get home in case...
  17. Liking The Chevy Bolt; Not Liking Chevy (at the moment)

    Chevy Bolt EV: Likes And Dislikes
    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I can't think of a single time when a Chevrolet (or even another auto manufacturer's) dealership would have been at all convenient to a trip that required a DCFC. If they want to spend money, they should leverage/subsidize an exiting network. And Harley. They're...
  18. charger reservations?

    Charging Stations Discussion
    You might look for hotels that have valet parking service. I fly out of SFO, and the garage I use offers charging, if you do valet parking. It costs a few bucks more, but they also have the ability to move the cars in and out of chargers efficiently, and no worries about ICEing. They ask for...
  19. Locking the J1772 plug

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    You're worried about someone stealing your portable charger? You can always drive over a loop of charger cable, pinning it to the ground.
  20. Pushed it. Tales from the interstate

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I wasn't saying it's not necessary somtimes. I was saying that your assertion that nobody will get upset if you run 8-10 under in the slow lane is incorrect in California, and likely other states.
