iMiEV has a "black box" recorder

The figures are accurate. Don't assume there is a direct relation to pedal position vs. throttle position especially on cars with servo controlled throttle.

Police not so much....unless it involves fatalities.

Insurance companies on the other hand, are a lot more ruthless.

I want an EV, but what?

For a hands on car I think a first or second gen Prius would be a good fit, either with a faulty original pack or good pack and adding the PHEV kits that are available. Dead blade EV another option if there is any around. There might also be a converted focus on sale over here in WA from the REV tri...

I want an EV, but what?

One of the limiting factors with the I-Miev is the 3.3kw on board charging. That's actually exactly opposite to my requirement. I'd prefer 10A maximum charging so it can be used with any power point. I know the iMiev has a 15A plug, but does it actually draw 15A, or just 10A I recall that one of th...

Thanks. That's the plan, although I'm not sure how much I could feature it? Any hacks available? One of the limiting factors with the I-Miev is the 3.3kw on board charging. One chap has tapped into the DC input and added a 50A charger. CAN-BUS can be snooped now with software called CANion. Once th...

EVSE Miev cords

Yes the 2010 by default does not come with pilot signal for J1772 compliance. You can check this by looking at the J1772 connector on the car. It has 4 pins not 5. Essentially it doesn't need the box on the cable. You plug into a 15A point and you get full 13A charging. Some of the cars have had 5th...

The AC and battery box fan do come on straight away when charging via DCFC as per the manual. Might have to dig into the service manual to see if there is any mention of turtle mode in high temps. I don't think it's an issue at all more a safeguard that I managed to find by circumstance. I can't say...

DC Fast charger roundup

In Perth we had a scorcher on Monday (44.4c) and to top it off I was at UWA for a fast charge on the Veefil at about the same time. So say it sounded like a 747 was a bit of an understatement with coolant pumps and fan running on high. My I-Miev cracked a little sad though with turtle coming up afte...

The software used for the diagnostic screens is Canion

So you need an android device either a phone or tablet.

While I understand some of the feedback already I think the gist is being lost, a little. The clothing is not meant to AEVA sell directly to punters. If it was the design isn't right.
