  1. Voltec charger ceased working! Please read and help.

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    So my Voltec charger mysteriously stopped working. Very minimal wear and tear. I took care of this quite well. The indicator lights are reading green which confirms that it's indeed on. It's simply not charging. The dealership tested the car and concluded that it was the charger. They said it...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    The purchase of a new to us commuter car for my wife put us into a scramble to educate ourselves about the Chevy Volt. I went out to purchase a 2016 or newer 2nd generation used vehicle. Found more of the first generation at really good prices. Got one coming off a lease with 25k miles for 15K...

    Hi, I'm WalterC from a very cold windy place in Mass looking at switching from a Fit to a Volt. I've just become aware of Volts and my next car will likely be a volt instead of a Prius. I'll either buy ASAP or wait till spring or summer. Is the included 120 VAC charger OK plugged into outdoor...
  5. Electricians: New Volt owner home charging setup

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    Just drove home a new '15 Volt and am deciding on how to best set up my home charging station. I could really use some knowledgable advice, preferably from electricians or others who've fully researched this.

  7. Post pics of your charger installs (aka show off your poles!)

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    If I can install a charger at all at my home, I won't be able to do a standard wall mount. It'll be outside in a carport. http://www.coulombtech.com/pdfs/CT2100%20Installation%20Guide.pdf The bollard/pole mounts for the Chargepoint look nice. I know I've seen similar bollard mounts for...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The chargers at the garage across from my office have gotten very crowded during the last three months. We've needed to find ways to share the chargers between us. So we revived the Courtesy Charging Protocol that was used by the Rav4 and EV1 folks back during the first wave of electric...
  10. My SPX "experience".

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I purchased my Volt on Nov. 3 of 2011. On Nov. 4 I contacted SPX and filled out the application for a 220 volt charger. Now it is January 6th of 2012 and my charger is still not installed. In my opinion SPX has grossly mis-managed my charger installation. SPX has grossly over charged for the...
  11. Home Depot Selling Car Chargers

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I am not a big fan of Home Depot.. but I came across this while look for something else EV related. BY getting major player outside the “EV” or “Car” industry involved can only help cut costs here.. I do not think they are cheap…. But still it opens it up to Wal-Mart’s and Lowes, etc...
