You might also look into having EV Connect. I ran into one of these at Costco in Goleta. You use it via the cellphone app. It was fast for a 50kW charger. Added like 50kW in an hour. ChargePoints get me about 43-44 in an hour.
OH!! If you are an I-Phone user, and your phone is plugged in, hold down the Voice button on the left side of wheel and say "Siri, find me an EV charger". I have figured out how to make it more discerning though. I want to say "EVgo Charger" or something, but it doesn't discern.
Whole foods use them - you just need to make sure you have an account set up even though its free to charge. Slow though.... I also used them while I parked o/n in a parking garage in DC. Again free and speed not an issue as I was charging o/n.
Thanks, good tips. I've scoured the web sites for CCS chargers that do at least 50kW and it seems I can get to the desert in a day. I want to see the bloom ... this year has got to be incredible given all the rain even for you guys in SoCal.
My favorite DC Fast Charger (until something better is found) had a "Fault: Emergency Stop (188)" message when I drove up today. Customer (driver) support says the owner must contact owner support. Owner support can walk the owner through a reset (if possible). There was nothing Driver Support or I could do about it.
Just thought I'd let you know in case you come across a Chargepoint charger with this message.
Sorry for digging this old one up. On the charger mentioned above, I was able to reset it myself a few days later than the post after doing an internet search. This model of charger has a red emergency shut off button on the front of it. You can reboot the charger by pushing in on the red button a little bit, then turning it clockwise about 1/4 turn and releasing it. The charger may work after that or show the fault again. I tried this on two chargers last week at a sight. One reset and one did not.
Speaking of Chargepoint chargers, I got an email from EVgo a couple of days ago stating the EVgo app can be used at Chargepoint chargers now. Your EVgo account will get billed at the Chargepoint rate for that charger. The agreements announced several months ago seem to be coming to reality. Thank you EVgo and Chargepoint.
since a cooling liquid level warning light popped out (apparently there was no leak, just a sensor malfunction) the charging rate overnight has fallen to 4% (3.87 kw per hour), a bit more than half the potential rate. charging the car from 0-100% can take over 24 hours. Is anyone experimenting...
After getting the H280 update from the dealer, my battery health looks normal. Maybe the API is giving better data?
Before I was getting only 77.8 kWh with 100% health and 100% Full on Wattcat
Here is what I'm getting now after 100% charge and some rebalancing
I just received the TeslaTap I ordered from here. I haven't been able to try it out yet, but I wanted to see what kind of experiences anyone else here has had with one. I plan to update this post after trying it myself.
To clarify for those wondering, the TeslaTap is an adapter that allows...
ABRP: Has anyone used the app recently? Just tried for the first time in months and the updated app seems to insist on using commercial charging sites such as EA over other (free) sites even when the alternatives are selected as preferred.
I normally have to set a departure time on my I-Pace to get my ChargePoint Home Charger to wake up my I-Pace so that it can initiate a scheduled charge. However, thanks to sheltering-in-place and not driving much theses days, I forgot to follow this routine and simply scheduled a charge using...
