Re: Aftermarket speakers?

Installed a compact / Low-profile subwoofer inside the EVSE storage area in trunk floor! My car did not come with the OEM EVSE charger, so I repurposed the space for this sub! A little cutting of the foam created a nice secure storage spot. Model is Sound Storm LOPRO8. It's about half the cost of th...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Still waiting for the Walmart Supercenter charging stations to go live. It's been over three months now. Once they do, we'll see if they work with the Spark. Yea honestly at this point, there's no need to "wait and see" if they'll work. If it's by ABB it will NOT, if it's by BTC Power it will! Also...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Thx MrDrMorgan I've been following this thread for a while! Also - Thanks for your feedback, there are a number of EvGo stations nearby so I may frequent them a little now that I've established my account. Mostly, I had been sticking to Chargepoint which I've found to be VERY reliable and can authen...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

I had another interesting experience that occurred last week. My usual DCFC was down so I tried a local EvGo station for the first time. After pulling in, I noticed the top of the machine said "ABB" on it and I had flashbacks to my terrible experience of two hours at the ABB Manufactured Electrify A...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

It has been almost 3 months since I first met with the ABB rep at the chargers in Livermore, CA and I still cannot charge there. Thank you for your Help MrDRMorgan! Also, I randomly came across this Spark/Bolt EV Post regarding charging issues even mentioning your post on Plugshare: https://www.tor...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

The best solution so far is for EV drivers to take photos of the chargers and, if not already posted, post them on PlugShare so we can determine whether the chargers are ABB which DO NOT work for Spark EVs or BTCPower chargers which DO work. Speaking of which - I know you've mentioned certain physi...

Re: 6.6kW charging

Chevy Spark EV and Chevy Bolt has a lot in common Do they?? I was unaware they shared ANY parts. From what I gather the two are totally unrelated except that I'm sure Chevy's R&D used information gained from their Spark EV and Volt to create the Bolt. I don't believe there are any shared parts......

There's actually a sticker on the motor/inverter (under the hood) showing emergency personal where to cut power for the battery system as well!

Re: Best way to charge for battery life

There have been literally thousands of posts with individuals producing long history and studies of battery data to support their conclusions on the battery degradation over time, use and charging. Honestly though? It's all pretty inconclusive. I haven't seen any hard evidence that charging to 100% ...

Re: Juicebox Pro 40

Just an FYI, although a Juicebox Pro pro brand may not offer smart charging features, the Spark EV has some built-in features that work similar to TOU. In charging settings in the MyLink center screen, you can set the charge to delay so that it won't start charging until middle of the night to save ...
