    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.
  3. Charging and Batteries
    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...
  6. Chargers / Components
    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...
  7. Charging and Batteries
    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...
  8. Charging and Batteries
    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...
