  1. Problems charging on timer

    General EV Discussion
    My Leaf charges normally on all charge points, chademo, granny and my home 16A Rolec chargepoint. However when the timer is set and I plug into my Rolec charger and the Li-on battery is low, the charger connects with a small thump as normal and then disconnects as normal (because the timer is...
  2. Every imaginable error code...

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hello good people, I've had my '16 GTE for 9 months now and really enjoying the driving experience, and charging, compared to my old Porsche Cayman! I cycle all over London and can't stand breathing in muck so decided to move on up and do my best for an electric that I can drive as normal if I...
  3. Recharging flat truck batteries

    Planes, Trains and Automobiles
    A quick query for those with more experience of automotive electrics... I have a horsebox ( 7.5T DAF LF) which wouldn't start today after having been unused for about three weeks - it seems I forgot to switch off the battery isolator last time I used it and with tacho, etc. there's enough...
  4. Red battery light. Service battery charging system.

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Anybody had this light and message? I'm guessing it's the 12v battery it's referring to not the traction battery. Is this one of those random faults caused by 12v battery failing? It's a 2013 and still on the original 12v battery as far as I know. Torque lite reports 12.0v-12.2v.
  5. Recommendations for a 12v Kettle for charging stops.

    Off Topic and Banter
    Looking into buying a kettle that can plug into the 12v cigarrete lighter for charging stops in the cold for my Leaf, and more so for my I-Miev which I don't use heating for. As well as a hot cuppa, I might even have the occasional Pot Noodle. What are others using? There seems to be some iffy...
  6. 12v Battery clarification

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi Sorry a couple of daft questions as I am not sure I fully understand some of this yet! In the manual for the 2014 Leaf it mentions that the 12v battery gets charged by the Li-Ion battery. Is this definitely the case and so does it cause a reduction in range if the 12v battery is weak? Also...
  7. ALDI Smart 12V charger

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Picked up a smart 4-stage charger for my 12 volt yesterday. Nice LCD display of voltage, only £13. Now to find a way of permanently mounting it under the bonnet!
  8. Car Vacuum

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    It occurs to me that the time I spend sitting in my car while it charges could be usefully emplyed, and one thing I could do with that it is to vacuum the inside if the car. To do this I suppose I need a mini vacuum cleaner that: 1) can run off the 12v socket. 2) fit comfortably in the glove...
