Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

So the weather has warmed up enough (plus an endless amount of free time) that I had the range to go try the next closest EA station in Fredonia, NY. They are also Efacec units like the location closer to me. I tried all four with no success (and then doused myself with sanitizer and went home). Di...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Since California "shut down", I haven't had to drive to Oakland and, therefore, have not needed to use the ABB chargers along my route that were installed by Electrify America. But.... in every case where I did charge at an EA location populated with ABB chargers, I had to lift (support) the handle ...

Re: 12 volt battery life ?

Okay? You are talking about a car 2 years newer and you replaced a battery on your own as a precaution and? I only stated a fact that in my case, the battery was OEM, 5 years old and unable to hold a proper charge. The owner before me rarely used the car and let it sit for months at a time (probabl...

Re: 12 volt battery life ?

2014 Spark EV OEM 12V battery replaced with OEM original AGM when the car was 5 years old due to too many incidents of idiot lights and battery unable to keep charge above 12.4 consistently. New battery meant no more problems and no more fast draining down to 11.2 to 11.9 Everytime I charge either ...

Re: 12 volt battery life ?

Here are some values I found for estimating the level of charge for a 12 volt AGM battery. Be sure to remove the negative battery cable from the post on the battery and let the battery sit for an hour or two before measuring the voltage. AGM battery status - Open Circuit testing: 100% - 12.8 volts o...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

Back in January, I reported that the battery kWh was 11.5, according to Torque Pro. This last charge, I started with 53 miles on the GOM and I drove 66.3 miles, with 9 miles left on the GOM. According to the energy screen, I used 87% of the battery at 13.3 kWh. This would tell me that the battery w...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

.... Even then, there is no guarantee I will get a NEW battery. The 2016 Limited Warranty booklet states on page 14: "If warranty repair requires replacement, the high voltage battery may be replaced with either a new or factory refurbished high voltage battery with and energy capacity (kWh storage...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

It was interesting to see the capacity dropped even though it was not charged to 100%. We shall see what it does as it warms up. I usually see a 0.3 to 0.4 kWh rise as we go into summer and, as we head for winter, it drops again and goes lower. The linear trendline on my graph projects I will be at...
