  1. Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    Couldn't find much info on recharging the Gen 2 battery with the onboard generator beyond Mountain Mode, so here's my limited experience: With the car on you can pop the hood to turn the engine on, and furthermore you can depress the accelerator to rev the engine, charging even faster! (With...
  2. Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hello all - I'd be interested in people's recommendations for a charger for my 2018 Volt that displays the amount of energy used after the charging is complete. I've got a US 240 outlet in place with a NEMA 6-20 outlet. I've been using a charger for some time that works fine, but doesn't have...

    How do I maintain long term battery life the best by 1-charging every night or 2- Letting battery discharge and getting a full charge? Please don't guess
  4. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2011 Volt. Started the day with a full battery of 28 miles. Went to work, parked with 22 miles. Hours later, I went to leave. The engine turned on and message saying "Propulsion Power is Reduced". The battery was now at 0. Worse yet, get home on the gas engine, but when I plug it in...

On the other hand, users search and request access to private chargers and pay all within the app. It...
  6. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Here in Houston we've rolling blackouts for 2 days. I have a 1500 watt Cobra power inverter permanently installed in the rear of my '16 Volt. I powered on the car and started the inverter, which is receiving a steady 13.1 volts from the DC-DC inverter supporting the 12v battery. But here's...
  7. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    In Phoenix, it doesn't get below freezing often in the winter, but will hover between 30 and 40 at night. My electric plan is extremely cheap during super off peak (10am to 3pm). Only $0.03 per kwh vs $0.10 in normal off peak. I'd like to set the car to "Latest Possible" within that SUPER OFF...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hey all, My 2014 Volt won’t charge. A few months ago, I plugged it in and the fuse blew in the outlet, but I am sure I’ve plugged it in (to other sockets) since then with no issues. Tonight when I plugged it in with the standard portable charger, the box on the charger lit up green and is good...
  9. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello, I've owned my 2015 Volt for about 3 years now. Yesterday I experienced my first problem. When I plug in at home on the supplied 120v charger I get no amber dash light, no green dash light and no horn chirp. After some research I had decided that I probably needed a new charging...
  10. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    The City of San Luis Obispo, California adopted an ordinance that required EV charging stations at every new development. CA code requires just the infrastructure for future stations. The city took it a step further and required the actual charging station. As a result, in just one year there...
  11. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hi guys, Sorry for my english, I dont really know the technical terms in this case. I just bought an Ampera, a new charging point have been planted into my garage. My ampera hits off the Residual-current circuit breaker (the left on the picture) every first time when I plug it in. Then I...
  12. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi all - new member and a new Volt owner (2013). Been eyeing them for a while and finally bit the bullet. Love the car so far, but have a few things to figure out yet! What I want: ability to see battery charge/charging progress on my phone (Android) when away from vehicle, but maybe within...
  13. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I've only started using this functionality recently because I need to keep track of my charging a little more than I used to. In case you are wondering, the shared garage in my condo has us sharing the electricity for the garage and I want to be fair about paying for my EV charging. I...
  14. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hey everyone! new chevy volt owner here. I have a 2017 Chevy Volt LT. I have the OEM Charger (EVSE). I am in the process of using my 30amp dryer outlet to charge my Chevy volt. the part where it gets tricky (at least to me) is that i still need to use my dryer outlet for my dryer. So then i...
  15. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm installing a ham radio in my 2017 Volt and purchased a low voltage disconnect box which will start a timer below 12.8 volts and either disconnect the radio after 2 mins or when voltage hits 12.4 volts, whichever comes first. Thinking into this prior to installation, I realized this system is...
  16. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I fly drones for commercial work. I need to charge batteries from the cigarette port. Is this possible or do I have to leave the car on to charge the drone batteries? In other words, is there "ACC/ACCESSORY position"? Thanks in advance.
  17. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I'm a bit confused. I have a 2018 Volt Premier and I'm looking to install level 2 charging at my house. I have a couple of questions because I read that I should have a 40amp breaker in the panel and I thought I could use a 30amp for the Volt. I'm also...
  18. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    My 2018 Volt plug-in to the car has always been a chore. After 10 months, I had hoped it would loosen up, but no dice. Any solutions to this issue? TIA
  19. Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Seems like a basic question but I am getting conflicting answers. Bought a 2018 Volt LT about 3 weeks ago and want to make sure the main battery lasts as long as possible. I didn't see anywhere in the manual if it is okay to charge the battery at any time or only when completely dead. I...
