Flat Tyre

This is something i'm worried about. more likely that i get a flat tyre than run out of charge... (i still can't believe i brought a car without a spare) would be interested in knowing how hard it will be to get a replacement tyre as they aren't a common size. and can you ask the tyre guy how much f...

If it's like everyone else's driving experiences, you might find the ICE sitting around a lot more than you first imagined http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley32.gif not until the car gets child seats waiting on some Australian approved ISOFIX seats.

has anyone replaced the 15A plug with a 10A one?

an extenstion cable with a IP56 female plug and a standard 15amp plug on the other end would be ideal. to solve water ingress.

Clipsal catalogue page 28
Cat no. 56CSC315

I'm not sure how to solve the passerby issue with disconnection, i assume since it's chargepoint it'll sms you.

has anyone replaced the 15A plug with a 10A one?

The mitsu all weather plug is too big. It is designed to be screwed into an all weather socket. And the cable is too short. I wouldn't cut it off better of to buy a small extenstion lead. 15amp lead shouldnt cost that much, If anyone findes one with the industrial female IEC socket tell me i only h...
