  1. Charging and Batteries
    In the CCS SAE V1.2.1 standard, connectors and inlets are required to interlock to prevent removal while current is flowing. You can press a button to turn off the charger, but it should not have any mechanical effect until the charger is certain that no current is flowing. This is an extremely...
  2. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I have quit using the EA app (pick location, pick charger, swipe or double click to activate charger routine), and instead use the EA "card" in my Apple Wallet. Just pull up and plug in, wait for the charger to communicate with the car. When the "charging cost" screen is displayed on the...
  3. Charging and Batteries
    I can't find anything about being limited to the 30-32kw charging rate so has anyone here ever had this problem? I posted this in r/boltev but I think I'll get better answers from this forum. Took a weekend trip with a full Bolt a few weeks ago now from Tampa to Atlanta in my '20 with less...
  4. Charging Stations Discussion
    I had parked my 2019 bolt in Mesa for about ten days while I was traveling. Got to the car around midnight, 102 degrees still. High for the day was around 117. Drove 4 miles to the ea charger and spent about twenty minutes trying to start a charge. Initially the app wasn’t recognizing that my...

    Looks like my area is going to move to the 2020 NEC and I'm planning a big garage remodel... Anybody got a chance to look at it? Any big changes from 2016?
  6. Road Trip Report And Long Trip Discussions
    This weekend I am taking my first long haul, multiple charging stop road trip and I'm excited! Trip is 650 miles -1300 miles round trip- from Ohio to the East Coast, and back. Staying overnight halfway through on the drive out, but will be doing it all in one shot on the return trip a week...
  7. Charging Stations Discussion
    It's an EV driver's nightmare. We were stuck in the middle of nowhere with an Electrify America charging station that wouldn't charge our car. It could have been worse. It was only 100 °F (38 °C) and not 120 °F (49 °C). The wind was only blowing at 15-20 mph (7-9 m/s) and not 20-40 mph (9-18...
  8. Charging and Batteries
    Did a 2700+ mile road trip a few weeks ago, and a LOT of DC charging. On my way back to LA, I had the pleasure of getting an informal tour of an Electrify America charging station at WalMart in some hot, awful town near Fresno (where somebody stole my wife's $5 hat that was on top of the car...
  9. Charging and Batteries
    I’m going to record this next time I charge at an EA charging station, for proof. So, I began the charge with about 68 miles left and ended with 237. The session took just under 50 minutes. I was really impressed. Percentage wise, it went from 19% to 80%. I wanted to post this because I always...
  10. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    Hello all. I'm hoping someone here can help me. I’ve owned a 2020 Bolt EV for about two weeks now, and until yesterday, was charging via the L1 charger that came with the car while I waited for a 240v outlet to be installed in my garage for an L2 charger. Over the weekend that outlet was...
  11. Charging Stations Discussion
    This week a friend on an EV road trip became stranded at the Herkimer NY EA DCFC when all four units failed to work. How can we all help each other to try to prevent this from happening again? What can we do? EA can’t fix what they do not know is broken, unlike a gas station the EA host...
