Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

15 July 2019 update: Good meeting today at the EA chargers in Livermore, CA. I met with a representative from EA and a technical representative from ABB, the manufacturer of the chargers. The ABB rep took a lot of charger data as I demonstrated multiple times on two chargers that my 2016 Spark EV c...

Re: Vehicle history

Thank you for the information. I looked at several that were for sale and they all included a Carfax report. In one case the car had been in a accident and another the car had less than 3000 miles but there were several componets replaced near the time that the lease was ended which is good to know...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

WOW! Great work all!
Hopefully we can see some progress here because using the ABB machines will allow me to travel farther out northeast! Plus as EA gains popularity and market share, we don't want to be excluded from the network access!

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

I just returned from my trip to test the new EA phone APP. I drove to the Laguna Village Shopping Center located in South Sacramento, CA. They have four 150 kw EA chargers there. Using the EA phone APP, I was able to initialize and charge at each of the four chargers. Only two of the four worked be...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Agreed! Also, yes I started downloading the app to give that a try as well but they wanted $10 account setup balance, and then automatically top off once it drops below $5 so my stop would have been a minimum $15+ since I didn't have an account yet and I just wasn't ready to go all-in on this malfun...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

With your permission, I will share your post with the EA customer service representative with whom I have been working. Oh absolutely you can! You can even involve me personally if you want, PM me if we need to get something set up to get on the phone with them. Unfortunately, so few Spark EV's in ...

Re: Trailer hitch with lighting cable installed for 350$ can

I also had the same idea. There’s a small aluminum trailer for sale that’s 170 lbs, plus the battery pack (approximately 450-500 lbs). So, call it 650-700 lbs total, the car is designed for that much weight in passengers and cargo alone. If you put the batteries in parallel, I don’t expect the batt...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

What fortuitous timing with this post. I purchased a 2015 with DCFC on 6/1/2019 and was just looking for an excuse to sign up and post (guess I'll do a formal Welcome post later). So, I planned this trip with a bud to visit a shooting range 50 miles away. And took a separate way home passing a brand...
