Re: Battery degredation

I've supercharged my eSpark over 300 times now and I still get 75 miles of hard highway cruising. The batteries are pretty bullet proof- if it can survive my lifestyle, considering I've put 40k miles on it in 22 months then it's going to work fine for someone who is softer to it for decades. GM if y...

Re: "Camper conversion on my 2015 eSpark"

The Spark can truly take a beating. I've run it through rivers. Hooned it in the mud, driven it on slickrock, high centered the vehicle on multiple occasions, fit three people and a 14 diameter dobsonian telescope in the back seat. Yea. . . I am surprised i haven't had to take it in yet. https://www...

Re: "Camper conversion on my 2015 eSpark"

Those are awesome pics !! You sir, truly live up to your handle! Is the orange tarp one of those light weight tarps? Can you show the floor mod? I need ideas for car camping in my Element. I don't have a floor plan anymore- my SD card with all the photo and video of me doing the conversion died. Wh...

"Camper conversion on my 2015 eSpark"

I thought I'd share this picture here. My friend took this on an astronomy trip last June. I had converted the rear space of the car to accommodate a custom raised floor I could sleep out the back of it without the lip of the trunk getting in the way. I could store a weeks worth of food, two ropes a...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

I believe that the "fix" was : "support the charging handle while the initial handshake occurs, so that the locking pin falls in to place". That hasn't worked for me (or many others) at the Efacec stations (these are the prevalent type installed in the Southeastern US). Lord knows I've tried everyt...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

I actually jumped on plugshare and started surfing some of their upcoming chargers - seems like they are rolling out this new design- frankly I don't mind. Doesn't give me flashbacks to the early days of supercharging when I would stare at stark white ABB units in crowded dealer parking lots. (Remem...

Re: Which charger is which?

Actually only one was a BTC unit. I checked every single one of them. Actually there are only two Signet / non ABB EA units in the state of Utah. Cedar City and Spanish Fork UT. Firstly, I was definitely wrong. I apologize for my accidental ignorance, it is not my intent to spread misinformation or...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Completed a six hundred and sixty one mile drive from Santaquin UT to St. George (with lots of side explorations) in an eSpark. It went without a hitch, the chargers didn't fail to activate Impressive trip! Looks like your stops were at stations with btc chargers, which to my knowledge aren't anywh...
