Patience is a virtue

Good to see demand for them

The I has sharp brakes Powering down the volt also causes the foot brakes to stop gripping quite quickly. This is quite different from the norm. I us...

Car insurance

Shannons insure a 200k tesla roadster for around 2k
On a case by case basis

I had to ring them back
As initially they wouldn't insure the roadster
Only after mentioning that 2 had already been insured with them did they reconsider.

Buying a I-miev

Chelsea sexton likes how analogue it is. That was one of the reasons I went with the I. Simplicity. Also didn't have to go for the nissan "interview" Seems that one has to sign a waiver that 15amp circuit will be installed in one's home before Nissan will sell the leaf.

cable curling

Thanks guys. I can't wait for next version of Swedish evse hopefully with lock hole

A cool feature of the Swedish evse is the builtin LED albeit dim

This may match my future leaf's LED lit socket
Future leaf also locks the j1772 trigger

Buying a I-miev

as mentioned by acmotor previously, cheapest option is the holden EVSE AUD350
max charge 240V 10A

which also has the benefit of coming with a 10A plug.

only thing is that it feels cheap, but it is lightweight.

i can't wait to test out antiscab's openevse on the volt
