Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

If it charges, then I’d say it’s not a problem. Just do not pull out the J1772 plug while charging or you may get a spark.

Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

There are discussion about the J1772 vehicle inlet locking pin on this forum. You might want to try silicone oil to lubricate the pin.

Are you able to charge your e-Golf?

Re: rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

Yes, VW programmed delayed charging with a location. Glad you were able to find a solution.

Re: rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

Each location setting has a minimum charge SoC. It is described in the owners manual.

Re: Crazy to attempt 910 mile road Trip in 2019 eGolf SE ?

The e-Golf pack has no way to actively cool itself, which is why the owner’s manual says avoid repeated and consecutive DCFC sessions. Battery pack will get hotter with each DCFC session and high speed driving stint. Car will warn you by limiting power available for DCFC and for driving. While theor...

Re: rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

1. I do something similar but only once or twice a year on my return trip from the mountains. Anything mechanical will eventually break, so if you are constantly adjusting modes, the selector is likely to wear out sooner than otherwise. I have not advice on screen displays. 2. In the e-manager set m...

Re: Changing Charging Port

Parts are probably very expensive. How are you also going to ensure software communication is correct for CCS if you manage to swap DCFC port?

Re: Id3

I get closer to 5 mi/kWh for much of my driving in the e-Golf. I would still take the larger pack even if it only got 4 mi/kWh, because of the much longer range, the pack cooling - there will be very little cell degradation even on long high speed trips in hot ambient temperatures - and over 100 kW ...

Re: Max amps at 120 volts?

Thanks for explanation. I have a Clipper Creek HCS-40 on a 50 amp circuit. While I could replace it with a power sharing EVSE, having the Neocharge would let me pull a total of 54 amps simultaneously (assuming 24 amps pulling off the 30 amp dryer circuit) as opposed to only 40 amps on the single cir...

Re: Max amps at 120 volts?

Yes, smart move getting the Neocharge. I am planning to get one myself one of these days...when my wife ditches the ICE car for a BEV. FYI, even if your panel is full, chances are you are not using the entire ampacity of the 200 amp service. You can replace full size breakers with mini breakers for ...
