Re: Coulumb vs. Blink?

I want to take advantage of the free Coulomb charger but SPX is quoting $2600 to install it. I don't even need a new panel.. They know I am getting $1200 from the Bay Area transt so they are taking advantage of it and gaming the install costs. At this point, I am sticking with 120V or looking for a...

Re: 120 v ext cord

Congratulations. As Patrick said, good quality. Look for a minimum of 14 gauge, preferably 12 gauge cord. (smaller number is thicker, more expensive cord). You'll want to buy one at a home improvement store, the kind that can be used for construction equipment. I use one all the time when I go to my...

Re: Prius vs Volt

'L' mode in the Volt is a great feature and in my totally unscientific study, extends range. It also makes the car more fun to drive. I wonder, however, if an inattentive driver behind me might not notice that I am decelerating, as no brake lights are activated by simply taking one's foot off the a...

Re: Condo Owner - Charging Question

All they required was a VIN number or a sales order number from me, but that was back in August. But they wouldn't come to me based on simply being in the market, I had to have purchased or leased a vehicle. I had to go through two of their electricians. One was extremely overpriced, and I called an...

Re: Do either of the 240V chargers make any noise?

If I stick my ear RIGHT up to my CT500, I can hear a very faint hum. You would have to have amazing ears to hear it through a wall. It's much quieter than fluorescent lights. You can hear a pin drop when standing right next to mine.

Re: Lease or Buy?

I did the lease. As it stands now, I am going over my miles, and I do regret leasing this car. I wish I had just bought it. Within the first year of ownership, (before next June) I am going to look at my options of buying it out at the end, or trading the car in on a purchase. I will have to wait un...

Re: 3883 WOO HOO! Level 2 anyone?

Installation went well, electrician was great. Unfortunately the CT-500 broke down in less than 24 hours. It won't get past a GFCI fault and is stuck in the red. Tried all the resets I could, and then just had to open a support ticket. :(
