  1. General Charging Discussion
    Just an impression: When I use Instavolt or Polar rapid chargers it seems that my battery temperature indicator collects an extra bar compared to a similar charge on an EH charger. Anyone else notice this?
  2. General Charging Discussion
    I am in the process of getting ChargedEV to install me a chargemaster unit, but before they come to do the site survey I thought i would ask on here one big question, which affects where I site the charger. I will of course ask the engineer when he is here, but thought I would get others...
  3. Second Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF40 & LEAF62)
    The question which bothers me for some time is the following: at higher speeds the dissipated power (heat) inside the battery (Pb with units in e.g. kW), due to the internal resistance of the battery, is, according to my calculations, proportional to the sixth power of the EV speed (v), so...
  4. General Nissan EV Discussion
    I tried finding other discussions on this subject but couldn't locate anything. For background info, I purchased a used Nissan Leaf 2014. I paid for the upgrade to be able to use remote climate control ($200 US). I also wound up having to pay to have the heater replaced (~$360 US discounted by...
  5. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Most cars have a water temperature gauge. But not the GTE it would seem. Or am I mistaken?
  6. General EV Discussion
    Hi all, I've read up a bit about decreased range and slow charging in cold weather. Does anyone know if there are manufacturers guidelines on what the optimum temperature range for the batteries are? Or what temperatures the battery warmers kick in? Thanks
  7. Renault ZOE
    My Zoe's thermometer seems to have gone a bit bonkers. On Monday morning it started off at -31 degrees (actual temp was around 12) and eventually settled on the right temperature after about 15 minutes driving. Today it started at 22, went down into minus figures then up again and settled on 23...
  8. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    2016 model year Nissan Leaf Acenta 30 kWh, 6.6 charger. How do you set the temperature that will be used when you turn on the climate control remotely via the Nissan EV app? (not via the climate timer). I have seen on these forums suggestions that this setting is under the zero emissions menu...
  9. BMW i3
    Does anyone know if the motor in an EV would suffer any damage it was driven hard from a cold standing start? (this is not a question about the battery). If you parked over-night at a motorway service station, got up on a cold morning (1 or 2ºC ) and drove immediately out on the slip road and...
  10. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    Recently I've noticed a huge increase in range when my Gen1 Leaf battery temp is elevated. After work I travel 39 miles from a nearby rapid (m40 Warwick services) to home. LeafSpy tells me it's used 140 Gids if I 'press on' and as low as 110 Gids if I drive like I'm driving Miss Daisy with an...
