hi, I cannot seem to find any way to see what amps my car is charging at. Where is it in the menus? Mines a 2012 volt.

Hi @(redacted) you may want to update your profile as it says you drive a Tesla Roadster! If you are lucky enough to have both, you can add the Volt to your profile. :)

If I remember correctly you think yours is a pre 2013, so the charge rate is selected on the charging lead 'brick' as it is known. The later ones have it in the on screen menu.

I'm still waiting for the handbook to be posted by the dealer along with a spare key lol. Yes we have both cars btw. Profile updated.

The charging lead (usually stored under the boot floor) should have 2 buttons on it, one for 6 amp I think this shows 2 leds on the brick, the other for 10 amp and shows 4 leds. This is the lead with the 13 amp domestic plug in case you have 2 leads.

Does OVMS show the charging rate on the older 2012 ampera?
