Re: Dealer can tell you kWhs in iMiEV

Previously it was 12.9kWh. Now 12.7kWh. The little change is reassuring because I had the feeling the range remaining guess-o-meter has been telling me lower numbers lately in spite of warmer weather. I lost a fair bit over winter but recovered all but maybe 10 km since it warmed up.Bummer. 12.5 kW...

Re: Outlander PHEV suddenly disabled

. I suspect that, notwithstanding the dealer's denial, this is what has happened. I understand the 2017 PHEV has better battery range compared with previous models and that this was achieved with better BMS software so in the absence of any other explanation, I'm going with this one. I wonder if th...

Re: 10 Amp charging

My 2010 iMiev charges with an Amphibian all the time and only pops the circuit breaker on days when the outdoor temp is in the high 30s or above - or if I leave it in direct sunlight. On cooler days it never triggers. It's rated for a temperature of up to 40C so I figured there was no mystery to thi...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

I think it was showing no bars (one bar flashing) and the charger icon (if you look carefully it is not a fuel bowser) was flashing. Thanks for the answer. I never looked closely enough to see what my" bowser" was. Of course it was silly to interpret it as a dino juice hose! But it was fun watching...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Not particularly unhappy with ours because it went about 90km before doing that, which was about expected. Know not to trust the range meter now though. I always knew it wasn't precise, but I expected it to be more accurate as it ran out. Yes the RR distance is to be taken with some caution. I thin...

Re: 10 Amp charging

Hi all iMiEV wizzards. I'm not an iMiEV wizard at all, but none seem to have answered so far. Bottom line: there will be some sort of pre-charge circuit inside the charger, and the details vary widely. So it's difficult to put an exact time on how long to wait before re-applying power. However, it ...

The charge cable that comes with the 2010 i MiEVs does not have any electronics. The charging port is also missing the pins to communicate with other EVSE cables.

Re: 2010 Imiev charging question

Well why can my 2010 iMiev charge from everything I can plug it into? It'll charge at 30-35 amps at CHAdeMO, 15 amps at the J1772 and 10 amps at home from the wall socket (via Ampfibian adapter).
