30k km Service

be warned apparently they need to empty the battery for this service. I wasn't informed of this so I picked up the car with 17km range to empty and 3ish bars. When the women who organises the bus rang me didn't tell me by coming early they would take my car off charge. So the afternoon ended up bein...

Outlander PHEV-should I get one?

1/2 hr later I'd got 1.55kWh and we were on our way.
that's good it means there is a ~3kW charger on the outlander so 15amps maximum.

I'll check with the wife (who'll ring her mother who is office manger), last time fees was a couple dollars per car (so we could justify putting in a EVSE) . the main thing is because your recharging on powered sites it needs to not be very busy at the park.

Betterplace started in Australia with type 2 with $500 for the cable and access to the network. chargepoint Australia only do type 1 because they only use a subset of chargepoint USA. this is already causing them issues with fast chargers as the fuji units require 200V 3 phase which means they have ...

Just to be clear, the fast charger will have two bays allocated to it - in the event that a Fast AC car AND a Fast DC car are charging at the same time. The level 2 charger will be available as a third parking bay. It's use will not interfere with the operation of the fast charger. The decision to ...

True, you would have to wait. You could have a second charger if the demand was there. Or, while you waited you could be getting a 3-7 kW charge from an adjacent level 2 point, and swap vehicles once the first car was done. not sure why you've gone back to type 1 considering all the sites will have...

tesla isn't free it's ~$3000 upfront cost.

USA it's not free.....
blink charge money

so does http://www.nrgevgo.com/ and chargepoint it depends on the site owner to select the price.

the UK is free on 1 network only. and Europe i can't read enough German or french to work it out.

If you get a 5kw inverter, it would be worthwhile putting in 3kw north, 2kw east, 2kw west. that will keep the inverter maxed out all day, assuming you have the roof space most inverters only have at most 2 MPPT and you have at least 3 panel string inputs with 3 panel directions... so it's unlikely...

Sydney (ausgrid) is 5kW per phase limit so if you have 3 phase you can go higher. we have 3.27kW of sunpower. http://www.pvoutput.org/intraday.jsp?id=20008&sid=18568 and using the mobile cable on a 2012 we charge at ~2400W so if we are home and not using much else we can get most of the power into t...
