Re: Hello from Hampshire UK

Hi all, Horndean Portsmouth here... Met-Blue E-Advanced on 17's all the internal extras (cloth) but only mud flaps on the exterior. Had it now since end of Sept last year, had to rebuild the garage before she could get put away at night. As an Electrician/Electronics Engineer I'm in process of buil...

Re: AC Fast Charging

Update. I've used the same charging location again twice now, and both times the charge rate went straight up to 7.2 kW. There are a total of three double socket charge points (so up to 6 vehicles can charge simultaneously. On the first occasion I was plugged in to one point, and there was one other...

Re: Winter range test

Recharging overnight took 29,42kWh or 30,65kWh battery capacity. What does that even mean? All as expected, but: Route acc Google maps is only 132,5 km. So distance measurement is 6% off? Any experience on this from other users. It does increase apparent range quite significantly. After the first f...

Resurrecting this thread to post Tim Pollard's experiences with a flat battery after not using it for a week or so in cold weather.
"We took it for a long drive to charge up the battery..." :lol: Does he think it's charged using an alternator driven off the main traction motor?! :lol:

Re: AC Fast Charging

Can anyone of you that has their own 7.2 kW home charger confirm how much power the car can take (for charging only, not charging AND heating)? I regularly see a 'flat-top' when we're charging overnight using a Zappi 2 of over 7kW. It tapers off at about 97-98% and trickles in the last bit. I can't...

Re: AC Fast Charging

However, by the time I'd exited the car park, that reading was already down to 56%, and as I pulled onto the drive at home (a 2.5 mile journey), it hit 62%. So 6% to drive just 2.5 miles averaging probably around 26 MPH?! This car never ceases to disappoint me with it's naff battery capacity AND na...

Re: Window washer system - odd place to go cheap

Ah hang on, I was about to post a rant on why would the washer jets still be frozen after pre-heating the car for half an hour, driving for 10 minutes, and sitting with the car can heating on for an hour while it charged. What the hell did Honda put in there at the factory that can't even handle -2 ...
