Re: 120v Charger Ground Loss problem

another thought: the outlet could have some internal corrosion and/or loose blades which cause loss of contact with the ground receptacle. fix is the same: change the outlet.

Re: 120v Charger Ground Loss problem

your outlet at work may have a bad GFCI. try it from a different outlet or change the GFCI and see how it goes.

Re: 120 v ext cord

12 gauge cord minimum. 14 gauge cord should not be used for full power (12 amp--4 lights lit) charge rate. if you drop back to 8 amp (two lights) you can use a 14 gauge cord safely but it will take almost 16 hours to charge from a depleted battery.

Re: Trailer Hitch for the Volt. Ready to go.

for those wishing to tow a small trailer (like a motorcycle trailer) the wiring modifications are not yet determined by the manufacturer (per Matt Lynch at Torklift)

Re: Prius vs Volt

I have shifted into L while coasting, and have noticed that it appears to be a "soft" transition, resulting in a gradual imposition of the regenerative braking. Theoretically this should not be detrimental to the health of the vehicle.
