  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    We just installed a juicebox charger. When we plug it in the charging light does not come on and there is a message that says a "problem is detected with the charger." Does anyone have any ideas of how to trouble shoot this problem?
  2. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Recently bought a 2012 volt, and i noticed a Tesla Super Charger in Glenwood Springs here in Colorado. Can a Volt be charged there? Thanks for the help. I tried searching for a clear answer, but couldn't seem to find one without a lot of digging. so i figured id just ask someone who knows.
  3. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    A L2 charge station with two plugs has been installed at work. Currently free, the Volt was fully charged in two hours and made it home with no gas. This is a 60 mile round trip commute, so until now the Volt used some gas every day. Today was pure electric there and back and awesome. If the...
  4. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    I'm looking at the different chargers available. Some of them (such as the GM VOLTEC) are listed as 15 amperage units. Others (like the GE WATTSTATION) are listed as a 30 amperage unit. What's the different? Pardon my noob question, but what does having double the amperage get me?
  5. Accessories, Apps, Modifications - Gen 1 Volt
    I just contacted SPX to order the 240v charger. $490 + local sales tax. My rep (who was very nice) told me that during the month of November they're offering free shipping! Woo!
  6. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    I got this baby installed today from a friend who is a master electrician. He wired it up to a 40 amp (two 20's) so that I have some room to spare for future charger needs (next electric car that can use more amps!!). It will be a 30 min change to switch out the voltec with another more...
  7. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    As Volt owners, we pretty much agree we will not pay $1/hour for level 2 charging. Maybe level 2 owners or service providers (ChargePoint) don’t understand why. The Volt will get 35-40 miles per gallon in charge sustaining mode. For 1 gallon of gas, priced at $3.65, the Volt can travel 40...
  8. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    As I've settled into my Volt I find more and more that I am integrating public charging into my daily routine. The benefits of this are not only that most of these stations are currently free to use, but in many cases here in the Bay Area where parking can be difficult on an evening out, the EV...
  9. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    $4 for 90-minutes in a Walgreens parking lot is the expected rate according to Tim Mason, the president and co-founder of 350Green. Walgreens announced last month it was installing electric car charging stations at 800 stores nationwide. Assuming a level 2 charger, that's $4 for what we would...
  10. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    The owner of SemaConnect, Mr Mahi Reddy, called me this morning to tell me their charge stations were free to use and explain a little about the J1772 plug standard. I picked up my Volt this weekend and while staying in Baltimore, attempted to use one of the two SemaConnect Level 2 charge...
