[Oeva-list] Think City EV

Remember that not all DCQC's are created equal.  I just called AAA.  Their
truck will give you "10 miles" of charge.  What means, according to Rob
Porter at AAA, is 10 minutes of 600 volts at 25 amps.  I quizzed him hard
about the 600 volts but he says that's what it is.  I'm still dubious about
600 volts.  That seems way too high.

I've noticed that the Kanematsu, Eaton and AV all charge at different
rates.  The AV seems the fastest and the Kanematsu the slowest.  This
extends to the "taper off" times.  They all seem to start slowing down at
different levels of charge.  There seems to be a lack of standardization.
This seems really odd because I thought the car (in my case a LEAF)
controlled the rate of charge.

For the city of Portland, this is a no-brainer for AAA.  I can't imagine
needing more than 1/2 hour of juice to  get to a station---but what if the
client has only a Chargepoint card and didn't bring a level 1 portable EVSE?

 From AAA Sept/Oct mag:   “Portland now has a AAA Roadside Assistance
vehicle that can charge electric cars’ batteries with enough power to reach
a plug-in station.  Don’t know where the closest station is?  Locate it
with the AAA Mobile app.  The EV program is being rolled out in Portland
and five other cities with plans for more in the future.  Say goodbye to EV
range anxiety.  Call 800-222-4357.”

Pretty cool!

As of 10 hours ago, there are only 15 Think City EVs left (8 black and 7
blue) of the 60 coming to Oregon. They are less than $9k after tax
incentive. This is your last chance to get this bargain priced EV.
