  1. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I charged my car a 100%. For instance the car says that the mileage is 372 range... That 372 number does not get reduced after many miles of driving. Also there is a charging port problem in many 2019 Chevy bolts which has yet to be resolved by gm. The charging port actuator actually stays in...
  2. 2022+ Chevy Bolt EUV General Discussion
    I'm getting ready to install a charging station in my garage and I have several questions: 1. What is the maximum amperage the car can take using the supplied level 2 cable if I just install an outlet? 2. If I go with a charging station instead of an outlet, does it need to be smart? It seems to...
  3. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Before you know it, summer will be here and what better time to drive up the Maine coast? Plan your trip very carefully. Hunt down places to charge and check the kW of the available chargers (woefully few are truly fast chargers). Earlier this week, I hunted for a hotel or inn or B&B...
  4. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Hello All, Chevy replaced my battery and I got it back today. They charged the car to 100% and all seemed good. However, after going on a little trip I plugged into an L2 charger and tried to set a delayed charge. However, the car just wouldn't do it. It wanted to immediately charge no matter...

  6. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    So I had the battery swapped on my 2017 earlier this week. Everything seemed to be going fine but I needed to charge this morning. Based on other people's reports I knew that I had to re-enable Hill Top Reserve and that was literally the first thing I did before I even left the dealership...
  7. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    My '21 Bolt is a year old this month. What's it been like? I love the car, but I hate public charging. It's a pleasure to drive - it's quick, smooth and quiet. In winter the heat is good, in summer the AC is great. Its size is small but just right for my needs. Winter driving is good if...
  8. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    My 2017 is in Virginia where we get temps periodically below 20F/-7C, sometimes briefly much colder. In the past we would just leave the vehicle plugged in all the time when at home in really cold or hot weather, per the manual. Now we're trying to follow the recall guidance. So interim...

    1) If you have hilltop reserve on to limit your max charge to 90%, how does cold weather change the equation? For instance San Francisco is having some cold weather, and the mileage estimate is going down from around 212 to 180. If my charging session is complete in the morning, is the battery...
  10. Charging Stations Discussion
    Hi all, thank you for letting me join this community. Have you heard of EVCS? They operate here in LA but have locations in Oregon, Washington, and the Bay Area. I just recently got one of their ads and signed up for their unlimited subscription plan and I've been pleasantly surprised by it. I...

  12. Charging Stations Discussion
    Hey all - I drive a leaf in Hawaii where everything is pretty close to each other. Also have an L2 at home. But for you all on the mainland, what are your thoughts on charging subscriptions? I know there are a few subscription services around but what makes them worth it or not worth it...
  13. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Hi guys! I just bought my 18' bolt and I love it! I bought it from a private party and unfortunately, it is missing the OEM charger which I am okay with. So anyway, I am shopping for a new charger, I have a few 'hopes' for my new charger and I'm not really sure if what I am looking for even...
  14. Charging and Batteries
    Whether I'm using Electrify America, ChargePoint or EVgo, I'm getting ~32kw or slightly less using a level 3 fast charger. I'm using level 3 chargers rated to 150kw, and I'm not charging next to other plugged in cars. I'm aware that level 2 chargers are toggled to around 32kw for the 2018...

  16. Charging and Batteries
    I'm driving to a lodge that offers complimentary TT-30 charging for guests, or you can rent a campsite with a 14-50 outlet. Rather than rent the campsite, I'm hoping to use a hardware store RV TT-30 to 14-50 adapter with my smart EVSE. My smart EVSE is the Mustart Travelmaster, and I have the...
  17. Charging and Batteries
    Apologies if this has already been answered somewhere (if so, please share the link). I recently purchased a used 2017 Bolt, which only has the J1772 port (does not have the two additional sockets below, which I believe enable CCS1 DC charging). From the layman’s perspective, it appears that the...
  18. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Recalls
    So I got my recall today and thought everything went well… except when I plugged in my car to a local level 2 charger and the car was still on the fan started going crazy. Like so crazy I watched the charge rate go from +6kW to -1kW while still plugged in!! Only after I turned the car off did...
  19. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Hi I'm a new Chevy Bolt owner, and I'm trying to plan out charging stops on an upcoming trip. I have a 2020 model Bolt. Given my destination and the availability of chargers, I'm might be stopping at a DC fast charger to get from about 60% up to 80% charge level. Can anyone estimate how...
