Charging at 240 in US using Occasional Use

Anybody knows if it is possible to connect the "occasional use cable" of a US i3 to a 240v outlet, using an adapter?

Precondition with key fob

Is it possible to precondition with key fob? I'd like to warm up the i3 in the winter if I am sitting in a coffee shop and planning to leave. I know this can be done using the phone app, but can it be programmed into the key fob buttons?

Re: Bimmercode hold state of charge.

I find that, except for cold nights in the winter or a long uphill drive, the REX is more than capable of charging the battery to a higher level than it is but it is set to not do that. I did however read someone saying that it is possible to put the car in emission test mode and that would cause th...

Why wait, even 20 minutes, when you can just let the REX charge the battery? But definitely code the car so that you ...

Re: Emergency fuel can for frunk

I just finished a 500 miles trip with my i3 REX without an emergency gas container. I would say unless if the gas stations are very far from each other (more than 30 miles or so) there really isn't any need for an emergency container. But I did have my car coded to allow "Hold State of Charge" and I...

Re: Bimmercode hold state of charge.

Is it possible to actually "raise" the state of charge? For example, if I am at 50% battery charge, could I somehow make the extender to keep charging the battery, say up to 75%?
