Re: new ev owner

Must have apps for EV driving using Carplay (I do not have android): Plugshare Chargepoint ABRP (need to pay to get carplay to work, I believe) To understand more detail about car: OBDEleven (needs OBDEleven OBDII dongle) CarScanner (uses any cheapo OBDII dongle) Non-Carplay apps: EVgo Electrify Ame...

Re: Max amps at 120 volts?

Great to hear the dealer said the e-Golf can accept 16 amps at 120 V. I was looking at my car's on board charger live data the other day, using OBDEleven, and saw that when charging at 30 amps at 240 V, about 15 amps was being delivered on the L1 line and 15 amps on the L2 line. So it makes sense th...

Re: Max amps at 120 volts?

Ok. Maybe try to find a L1 16 amp station in your local area to test?

Re: Battery degradation

Good to know it is a CPO - battery health is then responsibility of VW (which it is anyway, with warranty). You are taking good care of the pack. Definitely agree about mileage, but if you need to drive that much, then driving an EV is the smart way to go as energy costs are so much lower per mile t...

Re: Max amps at 120 volts?

If you are going to pay an electrician, why not just have her install a 240 V circuit?

As far as 16 amps at 120V, I believe the e-Golf will take it since this is the J1772 standard, but why not ask Clipper Creek if it works? Do you like in CA and are able to drive to Auburn and test it in person?

Re: Recurrent wins NSF Grant to Study Battery Degradation in EVs

Well then I think it's partially useful information. Highway range is far different than local range, so does recurrent provide both or just 1 number?

Re: Recurrent wins NSF Grant to Study Battery Degradation in EVs

Do the recurrent reports say you pack is at 69% net capacity?

Re: Battery degradation

Interesting. It is much cooler in CT than in Arizona. Maybe the previous did a lot of DCFC charging? Assuming 50 weeks a year, 5 days a week driving, I get an average commute of 80 miles a day - it could be done purely with AC charging, but would certainly require charging to 100% every work day. No...

Re: Car won't charge with charging timer enabled

The car-net schedules and in-car schedules should match, I believe - this could be an issue. Maybe try logging out of car-net and then back in again? Or call VW to re-synchronize the account (if that is possible). I had the free three years of car-net but hardly ever paid attention to timers since i...

Re: Car won't charge with charging timer enabled

I don’t know what happened. Have you tried rebooting the infotainment system? (Press and hold power button for about 10 seconds or until screen restarts, and then release button).
