Re: Home charging on a generator

The 120V charger included with the Spark can only charge at 8 amps or 12 amps if you set it in the car to charge at 12 amps. At the 12 amps setting (1.44 kw), an 8 hour charge will net you a theoretical charge of 11.52 kwh. That is a little more than half the capacity in the Spark. To answer your qu...

Re: Bosch home charging station

The only thing they ask for is the car's registration. I got a quote to have it installed in my garage. It was pretty outrageous (<$2400). I'll just purchase the unit and hire a less expensive electrician (which shouldn't be hard to do).

Re: 120 Charging time

When I got my EV, I thought I was going to have to run out ASAP and get a 240 charger. I'm finding my 120 charger is taking care of me just fine. I have a short commute, 12 miles round trip. Add a few errands and I probably drive 30 miles a day average. With this little car giving me a consistent r...

Re: ChargePoint experiences?

I've tried a few of them out. Just make sure you have your card because you can't really use it without it. 3 of the ones I used were free so it was pretty awesome. The display said it was charging at about 3.2 kw. One them at a mall was like $2/hour. You can get a max of 3.3wkh so it would cost abo...

Re: Suggestions: Dear Chevrolet

Some of these are repeats but that just means they're critical. 1. Repeat of drivefast - Provide an option to charge up to a certain level - I am also at the top of a hill, when I leave from home, it is regenerating 0kw 2. Repeat of drivefast/scotte - Update your apps. The OnStar app is incredibly s...

Re: Bosch home charging station

Yea I ordered a bosch 240v charger last week. It was only around $450 plus tax and shipping so it only cost me $12 i think. Cant wait to get it and install it. I will post up when i have it all done. So since you didn't have Bosch install it, does that mean you only get 1 year warranty? Also, did y...

Re: Spark EV Braking Issue

I may have experienced a similar issue yesterday. I was coming to a stop coming out of a parking lot. The road was clear so I did not come to a complete stop and felt a thump and heard a kind of bang noise. It did seem like the motor was disengaging and then re-engaging when I hit the accelerator pe...
