  2. Charger noise?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I am planning my 240V charger installation for my new Volt. The ideal outside location is on the exterior wall of the master bedroom. I can get the Coulomb CT500 for free under a DOE program. Big question: Does this unit produce any noise when in operation? 60 cycle hum, clicking from...
  3. Quick way to bypass delayed charge?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I know that to bypass a delayed charge setting and start immediately you can just insert, pull and reinsert the J plug. I realized today that doesn't work in some cases so is there another quick way around it? Heres what happened: I have enough range to get to work and back but I can fully...
  4. Coulomb CT500 EVSE Fault: "Relay Stuck Closed"

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Volt had been charging in the garage for a couple hours when it started chirping. It turned out the Coulomb CT500 level-2 EVSE was displaying this error message: FAULT: RELAY STUCK CLOSED It seems Coulomb will replace the unit though SPX, but it will take some days. Evidently this is a known...
  5. Coulomb Gets Patent for LAN-Connected EV Charger

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging Looks like Coulomb is quickly racking up the issued patents. This one gives them protection for EVSEs that have local area network interfaces, such as WiFi. The EVSEs communicate with a local gateway device which ultimately connects to Coulomb's servers. The...
  6. Coulomb Gets Patent For Street Light Mounted Charger

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging No, this isn't just hyperbole or exaggeration. Coulomb has somehow convinced the patent office to give them a patent for putting an EVSE on a street light. It's very broad protection considering how obvious this concept seems.
