Portable RCD with 15A to 10A Mains Plug Conversion

Simon wrote:Been meaning to try charging the iMiEV on the 15A to 10A outlet again and gradually add more load and see how many Amps it actually trips at.



Tested it today and it took 15.7A before it tripped the circuit breaker! Only left it on 13A a minute or so and kept increasing by 1A at a time.

Portable RCD with 15A to 10A Mains Plug Conversion

It should work fine to charge the Leaf on a 10A outlet. Although the unit we have doesn't trip charging a 2010 iMiEV which draws 12A continuously but g4qber's trips after a few minutes.

Would be a j1772 EVSE and clueless salesmen. Although if it was a 6.6kw leaf then 2hours would be all it would take to recharge from 50%..

Initially I thought the older i's were not fully j1772 compliant (it comes with just a j1772 handle direct to a 15A plug) but amongst the paper work is a small slip which seems to suggest it may have been modified in 2011 for the comms. Will have to try charging from a proper j1772 charge station a...

Imiev uses more of the 16kwh pack than volt

http://email.holden.com.au/2012/septemb ... age-2.aspx


According to this it's fixed price $185 (cheaper than an iMiEV Image ) for the first 3years/60,000km and service intervals are every 9months/15,000km.

I don't think servicing costs should be too much on the Volt? If you use the average of 60% miles done on EV then the average Australian would only do 6000km a year on petrol. That's only 60,000km over 10 years. So should be no major servicing costs just oil and filter changes and coolant. 2014 Chev...
