  1. 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 since I practically stole the car considering the price I paid haha. So anyway, I am shopping for a new charger, I have a few 'hopes' for my...
  2. 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...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...

    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...
  8. Want To Buy
    In February my wife and I bought a used (hardly, 24k miles) 2017 Bolt LT with a DCFC and we LOVE it. Super fun to drive and cheap to power up at home. I thought I would immediately install a level 2 charger in the shop, where it lives at night, but found through this forum that just getting a...

  10. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I have a 2017 Bolt, just purchased used. No manual but did download it from Chevy. LONG document and not all that enlightening for much of it, but I haven't waded through the whole thing yet... :) Pardon my ignorance, hoping these aren't silly questions I should have answered myself, so...

    EVmatch has created a platform for hosts and users to connect private charging stations. Hosts can list their charger on EVmatch and sell access/electricity to users. EVmatch takes a small fee. On the other hand, users search and request access to private chargers and pay all within the app. It...
  12. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    When I set up my Bolt preferences to charge at a specific time, I find the actual performance of the electronics sloppy and not dependable. For my area, it is always midnight to 3pm 7 days a week. What normally happens is that I plug in the car at say 6 pm, my dumb level 2 charger kicks in, and...
  13. Charging Stations Discussion
    I have seen two items on the internet that I would like to understand better. 1. A company (electrek) has produced a Tesla Supercharger DC type to CCS 1 adapter. Does this work with a 2020 Bolt? And available in the US? 2. Tesla announced for S. Korea an adapter for CCS 1 will the be in USA as...

    I have to pick up my son in Greeley, CO, a trip of about 320 miles over the Continental Divide. Bought my Bolt this past summer, but haven't travelled in the cold yet. After reading about performance issues in the cold (both range and charging speed) I figure I'd have to stop twice on the way...
  15. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I have my 2020 Bolt setup to rate and departure charging. In other words, I plug the car in at night and the car will be ready to go by 7 AM the next day. However, when I am out and about and have the option to charge the car during the day is there a way to start the charge without changing...
  16. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    So I plugged in to charge at a public level 2. Come back 8 hours later to find another bolt there! So awesome. I finish my charge and am so excited to plug them in. Like a good samaritan, I hook up their car to the level 2 charger. I notice three flashes and exclaim “wow they are already 75%...
  17. Road Trip Report And Long Trip Discussions
    Went to a state park and back in a day. It was around 5 hours total of driving (includes driving around the park) Total trip was estimated at 260 miles but came in around 250. based on past usage (4.0 mi/kWh) I thought I was definitely going to have the charge. So I stopped at a restaurant for...

    Do folks use the My Chevy App Energy Assist for planning road trips? Or trusty plugshare, or some combination. Or ABRP? Also, I prefer EVgo Chargers because I have a charging credit with them. Would that mean the 101? And, once in Big Sur, it's hard to find charging and the chargers they do...
  19. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    My 2020 Bolt was delivered today after a week in the shop to replace the charging port. Apparently the "check engine" light went on and the dealership said replacing the port was the fix. Today, after they kindly delivered to my house, I loaded up the kids, hopping in and started driving...
  20. Charging Stations Discussion
    Got a 2020 Bolt in July 2020. I typically drive maybe 20 to 40 miles per day, so I have been charging exclusively with the 120 volt outlet in my home garage & it suffices for our needs. I don’t have access to level 2 or 3 at home. Question: is it harmful to the Bolt battery to charge exclusively...
