Re: Electrify America complimentary sessions (set to free)

EA tweeted about it: https://twitter.com/ElectrifyAm/status/ ... 59200?s=20. Maybe it's across all stations now?

Today, when I was taking advantage, for some reason an ID.4 decided to use the only station w/CHAdeMO. It was off in the distance and it seemed like there was nobody in the car. All the other stations and spots at that site (a B of A near home) were open. Sigh...

I need to type up some pre-printed notes for cases like this, asking such drivers not to do that.

Re: Electrify America complimentary sessions (set to free)

Been enjoying the free juice via CCS. Planning to make a trip to Sacramento on 1/2 due to a museum being free for B of A account holders thanks to https://about.bankofamerica.com/en-us/w ... tners.html. Will drop by another museum there that isn't free.

It showed be at least 263 miles round trip.

The other day I went to a factory tour, museum and another town (never been to those places) and drove a bit over 200 miles in total, taking advantage of free EA juice.

Re: Electrify America complimentary sessions (set to free)

I took advantage of the free juice to see what my charge curve would look like in cold weather (10F). I got a pretty consistent 42kw from 12% SOH up to 60%, then a linear decrease to 21kw at 85% SOH.
May 2021 - 2021 SL+ , 10K miles, 92.6% SOH

Re: Electrify America complimentary sessions (set to free)

Free juice should be over now. I did go on that Sacramento trip.

DC FCed at multiple EA sites w/my 80% capped Bolt (due to "883" 80% limiter patch applied: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2021/R ... 0-5443.pdf, thread at https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/anybo ... ost-671094). I saw quite a variety of cars at EA sites. I recall at least these on Sunday using EA:
- 2 Volvo XC40
- 2 Bolts
- 1 ID.4
- 1 Rivian pickup - I saw him at 41% SoC pulling 150 kW. Chargers there are 150 kW max.
- 1 Mach-E
- 1 gen 1 Leaf using J1772 (the station with CHAdeMO at that site has been broken for many days, says unavailable on the screen for both plugs and shows up as unavailable in the EA app)

One EA site in Pleasanton was fairly busy even though it was night time. Rivian and ID.4 were charging so I got the last available DC FC. Eventually, the ID.4 and later the Rivian left. Mach-E pulled in.

I did really enjoy the free EA juice for all this time. I ate what resembled a lunch :( during 1 of my charges and dinner during another. Too bad I couldn't get another journey or two during the free period, due to other tasks and commitments I already had.

On the other day w/the factory tour (involved Fairfield and Napa), I recall a Polestar 2 (?) at one location and I think a Mach-E or ID.4 I'd also encountered ID.4's and Bolts numerous times during the free period. My memory is foggy on all the other BEVs I saw using the EA sites I used.
