Re: Ultra fast charging for 2015 i3 REX

However, the difference in power is considerable (350 kW vs 50 kW) and I am not sure if the car's battery will take it. BMW simply say that adapters should not be used, and an It's the car that determines max charging power so plugging into 350kw chargers won't make it go any higher and the adaptor...

Umm. Not sure you have a lot of options. But considering the pricing for S & X headlights it ain't going to be cheap.

Re: After sales paint protection and window film

For tint go to your local tint shops. As the Kona has privacy glass in the rear 2 different tints will be used to keep it legal.

Paint protection is a personal choice and it depends if the car is garaged etc. The paint quality on my 2019 is very good and holding up well.

2020 Kona Electric 3 phase

The 2020 Kona Electric has a 3 phase (11kw) charging option in Europe and the UK. Not for Australia. Pity. They have done what others have (looking at you BMW) and installed 3 x 3.6kw chargers on board. Sweet. To charge at 32A single phase they bridge L1 and L2 and energise 2 of the charger modules....

Re: OpenEVSE charging Zoe

I am running an Iotawatt energy meter at home now to replace a flaky 10 year old Current Cost ENVIR. This works seamlessly with EmonCMS what @doggy uses above and also uploads to PVOutput.

Once everything is talking it sends an accurate voltage reference to the OpenEVSE and PV divert is a cinch.

Well, I have to admit that if you forget the range difference* (311km vs 449km WLTP), the Ionic is ...

I don't want to be a party pooper but AUD713 + tax... It's incorrect to compare the type2/type2 cable to our product because chRget includes in its price also an adapter. Our EVSE with the Type2 automatically becomes a smart cable. Meanwhile, having just a type2/type2 cable you still need to purcha...

Re: We developed a charger. Please advice

For the AU/NZ market plug 18 isn't required as they are very uncommon. Much more important for us is 10A and 15A versions of plug 32 type I and plug 19 (32A 3 phase 5 pin).

Ah thanks for the photos. Yes agreed. With my 2010 I-Miev it didn't have pilot signal pin fitted. So I did it myself a bit sneakily. I purchased the J1772 to 15A adaptor from Gelco and used the spare pin in the connector and added into my J1772 car harness with a 1N4148 diode and 882 Ohm resistor. ...

2011 onwards I-Miev have a separate control box mounted on top of the AC charger. I suspect that does the PWM charge current control and in turn sends commands to the AC charger below it.
