    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    First of all, I'd like to whole-heartedly thank and recognize all of you running and contributing to this site. I have been following the Volt since very early in its inception, and a lot of my information throughout the years has come from this site (even though I didn't join the forum until...
  2. 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...

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    OK. Got the volt Love it so far. Got the estimate for the charger though. Wow. Even after all the incentives, they're trying to charge me over $1200 . I just don't get it. It seems like they're keeping a lot of the money provided as an incentive by the government / not really the purpose or...

I live in LA and my configuration is as follows: - Electric meter and pull box at the rear corner of our 16-unit building with room for additional EV meters (DWP came out to survey) - Assigned parking spot is one level underground...
  10. Problem with SPX Power Xpress

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I have had my SPX Power Xpress for approximately 1 1/2 weeks. I had it professionally installed on its own 30 amp breaker. Up to today, it worked flawlessly. When I plugged in tonight, the charge light in the car turned yellow then went out completely. When I looked at the charger, the power...

  12. Got my 240V charger installed today

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I know many have horror stories about SPX, but it was painless and quick for me. Ordered their $495 Voltec, they came back to me with an installation cost. They were going to install it last week, but I was in Bogota for business, so we scheduled it for this morning. They gave me a window of...
  13. Buzzing Coulomb Technology CT-500 L2 EVSE replaced by SPX under warranty

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    From day one my CT-500 made a slight hum when under load. About six weeks ago it began to intermittently hum/buzz more loudly during charging. The buzz sounds very much like a loose transformer lamination. I contacted SPX who, in turn, contacted Coulomb. Coulomb policy is to replace...
  14. Brand new Volt owners take note...(car charging options video)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)

  15. Anyone else make their SPX charger "portable"? Or WANT to?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I built this arrangement for myself, and when I showed it to my brother, he asked me to make a "travel kit" for him as well since he's on the road a lot. I'm curious how many others would be interested in obtaining a "Plug-N-Play" Plug kit for their Level 2 chargers. I built them...

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    Looking at the fine print on the SPX/Chargepoint deal: For a charger installed at your home, what would you be willing to pay for their services? What services do you get, other than some stats on your usage? (If someone can post some screen captures of the website, that would be...
  19. Dead SPX charger

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Recently all the lights went out on our Voltec SPX charger -- the one that sells for about $490-500. The portable charger wouldn't charge the car either. The dealer had to replace what they called "the charger" in the car, but our electrican found that both hard wired fuses in the SPX were...
  20. Ideal Charger Set-Up....

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I had a 60Amp sub-panel put in to handle 2 SPX chargers and one dedicated 120v. (see attached video) http://youtu.be/cytL4UthasQ I bought the SPX separately and just paid $500 for an electrician to install everything. At work they had my donated SPX installed for $300 by an electrician...
