  1. 2022+ Chevy Bolt EUV General Discussion
    Here is my experience with adding a level 2 EVSE after taking delivery of a 2022 Bolt EUV in July. It's a little long but hopefully there is something here that is helpful to others. TL; DR I have 48 Level 2 charging at home now, at off-peak rates. While the 2022 Bolt EUV comes with an EVSE, I...

    Has anyone else had an error on their dual level charge cord (chevy's dual level EVSE) I have been using my dual level charger (EVSE) for about two weeks now and since I haven't had my dedicated outlet installed yet, I've been using the outlet for my stove (NEMA 14-50 on a 50 amp breaker) and...

    I have a 2020 Bolt. The 120/240 EVSE that came with it just started giving me the "green LED plus five flashes red LED" treatment, which I believe means that it is dead. I have a Level 2 32A EVSE, so I'm not screwed at the moment, but I like having the 120V option. More to the point, I like...

    I installed a 240v 1 phase NEMA 14-50 receptacle feed thru a 50 GFCI breaker from my sub panel. I had purchased a 40amp Mustart EVSE on Amazon because we were originally thinking about purchasing a KIA EV6 and we wanted a portable EVSE. We changed our minds when our 2022 Bolt EUV became...

    OEM EVSE that came with my 2022 Bolt EV I never even took it out of the bag, so it's still brand new. I kept the one from my totaled 2017, so I don't need this one.

    Hi all, I just received my AmazingE Fast 32 Amp Level 2 EVSE with a NEMA 14-50 plug. It looks great and I was super excited to get it (after waiting a while). Unfortunately, when I got the installer here to install the NEMA 14-50 outlet he informed me that my circuit breaker can't handle another...

    Hi, I own a Bolt 2018 LT and a Spark 2016 2LT. I have a problem with the Spark, I am putting this thread here in the issues and troubleshooting section but please move if needed. It is a Spark EV 2016 with DCFC, car works great, no issues. Before I brought the car to Costa Rica, the car...

    Hey everyone! I just got a 2020 Bolt EV and am having trouble determining the correct charger to get for my apartment garage. The apartment garage is equipped with 3 NEMA 6-50R outlets that support level 2 charging. However, I am having difficulty trying to find a portable level 2 EVSE that has...

    I need 10 to 15 feet more cord on my stock evse, so I want to disassemble it remove the stock cord (j1772 side) and replace with longer and bigger, at least 1 size larger. Any pit falls in doing this, any tips, or advice.

    I helped my friend buy a level 2 outdoors EVSE for your Bolt, and after researching this blog, we decided on a Grizzl-e Classic. I liked the idea that they seemed to be a smart young company who seemed attentive to quality. My friend who happens to be a single woman with zero technical...

    I have an extra 120 volt Level 1 EVSE for my Chevy Bolt. I have an extra because I leased a Bolt before I bought one, and my insurance policy paid for it. These are 120 volts and 1440 watts, but if you make or buy a converter, you can run them as a Level 2 EVSE at 240 volts and 2880 watts. It...

    I am making a 14-30 pigtail adaptor for my stock EVSE as per the instructions on carcharging.us/adapt/bolt-240.php I have the ground wire connected, does it matter which hot goes on either post? I don't want to screw this up.

    I can get a $200 rebate on a charger that "must be capable of programming charging by time of day". I'm surprised how difficult it is to get details on EVSE capabilities. At least for EVSE's in my price range. The only one I've found is the JuiceBox at $600. I'm actually hoping to keep it...

    I am about to send a Duosida adjustable (8 to 32 Amps) EVSE back to the vendor (EVDoctor) for service. When I was shopping for a 240V EVSE I looked for the word "waterproof", because I wanted to use it outside. The Duosida had the word "waterproof" in the listing on Amazon with a graphic of an...

    There are a few posts that mention Mustart on this forum, but I couldn't really find a lot so here's another "what should I buy" thread from a new Bolt owner (going to pick it up this afternoon). I don't care about anything fancy. No WiFi needed, or scheduling, or anything like that (the Bolt...

    Hello, Have an AV charger that served me well for several years - then stopped working. Replaced it with a Clipper Creek, and all is well. If anyone wants the EVSE for parts (connector/wires are all good, etc.) then I have it for $45 in Los Angeles - shipping is definitely not worth it. It's...

    Hi all, I have to park in my driveway and have no garage or car port. The car is out in the weather, California, but we gets lots of rain here. I was looking for recommendations for how to install a level 2 "charger" EVSE in this scenario. Will I need a box of some sort to cover the charging...

    Hello, electrical engineers. I have a detached garage connected to my house by a buried NM 12/2 cable. I think this is rated for 20 amps. The house panel has standard hot+neutral+hot bus bars. Currently, the NM cable carries hot+neutral to the garage as 120V. Now, two questions: Can i...

    Would this work as a simple way to use the 14-50 outlet in my garage to connect to the Bolt EVSE and get a mild boost in charging? I will be mostly local commuting, so thought this would be an affordable way to charge without going for a more expensive second EVSE Thanks Gavin Oops, no links...
