  5. Voltec EVSE useless for delayed charging?

    Friendly greetings everyone, I purchased what may have been the last "new" (ex demo) Volt in Perth a few months back, and I've been very happy with it save for one small thing. The portable Voltec EVSE rarely activates correctly when first turned on. It usually requires turning the power point...

    Hey everyone! So I went to drive my Volt (2012, 47,000 miles) this morning around 10am and all was fine.
