You'd also need a BMW jack that fits into an i3's plastic jack points.

Re: i3 with 57kWh battery

According to a company that did a complete component-by-component tear-down of an i3, the battery pack, though an integral part of the car's structure - is designed for easy removal for maintenance. It is also designed so that individual cells can be removed and replaced. I believe that individual ...

Re: New Owner from Denver!

reason is because I will be trading my X5 for a Tesla hopefully next year. My electrician will be installing a dedicated 220V 60A circuit. Your charging circuit would provide a maximum of 48 A of continuous current. A JuiceBox Pro 40 would provide a maximum of 40 A of continuous current. Assuming y...

Re: New Owner from Denver!

Also, I am thinking of getting a Tesla Wall connector using TeslaTap adapter J1772. What do you see as the advantage of a Tesla Wall connector? It requires an adapter unlike all other EVSE's. It doesn't charge any faster than any EVSE capable of outputting 32 A. It doesn't have WiFi connectivity an...

Even though the coding parameter can be set to 5 blinks, i3 system software available for several years has not responded to this change.

Re: Precondition with key fob

I don't know what's possible, but if you have Bimmercode, look in the Body Domain Controller module in expert mode for possibilities. I found this information: BDC Body Module: Change Behavior of 3rd Button on Keyfob (short, med, long press of button) 30D0->RC_DEFAULT_IDG_3RD_BUTTON_SHORT set to opt...

Re: New i3 owner from TX

That if the "appliance" didn't have an on/off switch, then it was designed to be kept powered up in a wait-state. He said it is actually harder on solid-state circuitry to be powered up and shut off repeatedly, than to be left on in a wait-state, unless specifically designed for the repea...

Re: New i3 owner from TX

If eMotorworks still made the classic model, without the wifi and voice control, which I don't need or want, and adds to the cost, I might have been tempted - but 6% translates into 1 out of every 17 shipped getting knocked on Amazon, usually for total failure after a few months, or on-going issues...

Re: New i3 owner from TX

I looked at several, including Juice Box, but was a little leery of the raft of negative reviews on Amazon. "Raft" might be a bit strong with only 6% of 500 reviews either 1 or 2 stars. JuiceBox has been available for many years (ours is 4 years old and has never had a problem) and is one...

Re: New i3 owner from TX

If you want another reason, the JuiceBox is Energy Star rated and the CC isn't. :D I didn't realize that EVSE's were included in the Energy Star program . An Energy Star EVSE consumes ~40% less energy in standby mode in which EVSE's remain ~85% of the time. Our old JuiceBox kit EVSE is on a switche...
