    Can't Charge Via Nissan EVSE (With Adapter)?

    Is the that dual voltage L1/L2 120/240 volt EVSE that ships with some '18+ Leafs? If so, it can plug into NEMA 14-50 or 5-15. If using 14-50, I guess you could bring your mobile connector with a 14-50 adapter, otherwise it's 5-15, which obviously super slow. As for failure to communicate. Is...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    Indeed. This is what I'd been railing about before Nissan decided to go with CCS for Europe and the US in the upcoming Ariya. EA was doing the bare minimum to "support" CHAdeMO and the way "supported" it wasn't exactly reassuring any CHAdeMO users. There are folks in the Pacific NW who've...

    I agree that it's unlikely Newsom will be recalled and replaced. If things were going to hell in CA and there was a viable replacement, ok, then the chances of a recall are higher.

    Indeed. https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/29/politics/cnn-poll-covid-vaccines/index.html The part I bolded and italicized is disturbing. I wish CNN had put up clips where they talked to some Republicans/Trump supporters who were unwilling to get vaccinated. One of them, of course blew it off...

    Yes. It blows my mind when I see people complain about or having problems using their credit cards at EA stations. I sometimes see it in Plugshare check-ins. Their CC readers are known problematic. Search Electrify America Talks Charging Network Problems, Has Solutions for credit card. It's...

    What is high mileage to you? Would you buy high mileage used?

    Teslas don't have a "powertrain" warranty. The only thing remaining would be the drive unit and battery pack warranty (Vehicle Warranty). Many people here at TMC have tried to talk about a "drivetrain" or "powertrain" warranty esp. in the context of trying to get certain things covered under...

    Sure. All of the early Blink CHAdeMO chargers were that. Examples: PlugShare - Find Electric Vehicle Charging Locations Near You https://www.plugshare.com/location/18023 https://www.plugshare.com/location/64181 These were deployed years before a single CCS car shipped in the US.

    Not really. CCS has probably pulled ahead now of CHAdeMO in the US but I wouldn't call it "far more prevalent". It might look that way with EA's minimum effort to "support" CHAdeMO of 1 CHAdeMO plug at a site vs. usually 5-7 CCS. The most eggregious I've heard of is an EA location w/1 CHAdeMO...

    Anyone have 30KW or more PV with PGE?

    40 inch LCD? Wasn't bad... maybe you mean 40-inch OLED? Heck, back in late 2008, 55 to 60ish inch LCD TVs for a decent brand were only a bit over $2K. At that time, I was looking at those instead of buying a 61" 3 LED-lit DLP RPTV, which was cheaper than the above. I ended up going w/the...

    Since Seattle was mentioned, there are now some in the Seattle area now: Tesla - Seattle. More accurately, I'd call them Western WA as it includes numerous cities outside Seattle and even outside the county that Seattle is in (King). Tacoma is in Pierce County. (I lived in King County for...

    Sadly, I have no SO. :( Definitely do check Plugshare for the EA stations or any non-Tesla stations before spending the time to go there. Some of the EA stations near me have inoperative CHAdeMO handles, per EA's own check-ins. This is especially important if one want to use EA's "generous"...

    If it's a big problem, rather than wait for Tesla to install Superchargers, just buy or rent/borrow a CHAdeMO adapter.
