  1. Ground Faults only on Level 2 Charging

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hey everyone, I've developed a ground issue with my Volt that only appears on level 2 stations. The other day when I arrived at work, I plugged in my Volt to the Chargepoint station as I have been doing for over a year, and after a quick click of the relay, charging stopped and I got a Ground...
  2. Level 2 Chargers

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I've wired a 220v/240v outlet at home and ready to buy a Level 2 charger. What the difference between them? There seems to be quite a few options. I'm planning to mount the charger on the inside wall of my garage and just run the cord under the garage door....maybe get one of those docks...
  3. GE Durastation Level 2 charger

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I have now had two of these (GE replaced the first one free of charge when I could not get it to work). In both of them, although it is set at 20AMPs, my new Volt tells me that it cannot charge with it. Does anyone have a similar problem? Is there something on the Volt that I need to set? I have...
  4. Anyone buy a Chargepoint Home charger?

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hey guys, anyone buy and use a chargepoint home charger? I'm looking at getting one for my Volt when it comes in. It looks like it has a nice combo of smart features and good power for the price. Any experience out there with this unit they care to share?
  5. Battery charges to 53 miles on 240V charger

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    My 2014 Volt has 1000 miles on it and I just installed a 240V Clipper Creek LCS-25P charger. It seems to be working too well. On 110V I was getting about 42 miles indicated when fully charged. My first charge last night on 240V gave me 53 indicated miles. I like the fact that I have more...
  6. Did Anyone Else Get Hit with Belated $25 Charge from Service Solutions LLC (Bosch)?

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    On October 31st I noticed a $25 charge from "Service Solutions LLC" on my credit card. It turns out that this company is owned by Bosch, which bought SPX. I purchased my Level 2 charging station from SPX over 18 months ago. I paid for the device with my credit card and it was shipped to me. The...

  8. Which is better for battery life? Level 1 or Level 2 charging

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2012 Chevy Volt with about 8,000 miles on it. I have an installed Voltec L2 charger which I use as my main method for charging my car. I have read many posts but not found any that talk about the battery life being charged by a L2 charger vs. doing the slower L1 charging? My question...
  9. Just my SPX Voltec installed.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Just thought I'd share this. I received my SPX Voltec charger over the weekend and got it installed yesterday. My brother's coworker is a electrician on the side so he hooked me up. He charged $30 and another $12 for 20 amp breaker. I sometime would go out and come home a little late and would...
  10. Better EV mileage with Level 2 charges versus Level 1?

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    (Sorry if this is a FAQ, but I am new.) I've had my 2012 Volt for 4 months and a month ago I got a Level 2 SPX charger installed at home. Although I have no data to back this up, it just seems to me that I am getting better EV milegae now even though my driving is about the same. (Yes I...
  11. Level 2 Charger makes a BIG difference!

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    We had our Volt (#C8623) for over two weeks before the Level 2 charger we ordered through Duke Energy's Charge Carolinas program was installed. During those early weeks we found that we were limited to a single trip per day if we wanted to run on battery power alone due to the 10+ hours it took...
  12. Rant: FUD campaign re level 2 chargers

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    It seems like the electric utilities and especially the "charger" manufacturers are going out of their way to portray level 2 charging stations as exotic rocket science. Exorbitant installation charges, paid site surveys, certified installers traveling from afar, etc. This isn't the case...
