Re: Charging Use Spike - 326 kw in one hour!

As others have pointed out, it's physically impossible for you to have consumed that amount of energy. Your ChargedEV charger is at most 7kW (32A) - possibly less, depending on your wiring. Assuming it's wired for the full 7kW, the most it could possibly deliver in an hour is 7kWh (although not to t...

Re: Upgrade to a 15 amp charger (Australia)

I own and use the charger you linked and it's been working well - although we've only had it for about 4 months so far. I'm in South Australia and had an electrician install two 15A outlets in the carport, one connected to my off-peak controlled load and one to the regular house load. The charger is...

Re: Heater question

As stated above, I believe that in some countries at least the basic 2014 models didn't have an electric heater, so the car relied on the ICE for heating - so the first thing is to confirm whether your car has an electric heater or not. In my case, when I bought mine (used), which *does* have the el...

Re: D-Method on really stubborn cars or the A-Method :)

Watching this thread with interest, although I'm not yet brave enough to try any of these methods on mine... Heydr's last post caught my attention - charging 9.6kWh sounds like a lot! It's 80% of the theoretical max capacity of the 12kWh battery when new. This suggests that the BMU reset is allowing...

Re: Odd charging behaviour

There's a guy who posts a lot on youtube with a channel called Unplugged EV and I recall in one of his videos he referred to charging being interrupted by some kind of battery cell balancing cycle.

Re: Retro fit or enable WiFi / app?

Thanks Richr - that's a little disappointing... guess I can live without it then.

Re: Heating problems

Just an update on mine - it took the dealer two days to diagnose the problem, which didn't turn out to be the filter after all - it was a loose electrical connection to the water pump. Nice to have a warm car at last!

Re: A/C auto mode and snowflake symbol...

But apart from lubricating the seals, and the de-fogging, and the reduced sweatiness in summer - what has the air conditioner ever done for us?

Re: A/C auto mode and snowflake symbol...

As above - it’s called air conditioning not air cooling for a reason. ...understood - although I have to say that if I was Mitsubishi and I wanted a symbol that meant "not cooling" I would probably not have gone with a snowflake :-) Joking aside, thanks richr and jaapv for the quick and very helpfu...
