Re: How do I take advantage of a 480v outlet at work?

If I was a co-worker who was buying gasoline to get to work and you were driving on free electricty from our employer, I would be a little annoyed too. Free fuel is quite a perk! He drives to work on free fuel in his brand new, nearly every option, f250 super duty company truck that gets about 10mp...

Re: How do I take advantage of a 480v outlet at work?

120vac * 12amp = a max of 1440W. Most people average about 250W/mile or so. There's overhead, it's not perfectly efficient converting 120vac to around 400vdc, but still, you should see at least 3 miles/hour recharge rate, and probably more. If that 480vac is three-phase, you might be able to make i...

Re: How do I take advantage of a 480v outlet at work?

I was really hoping there would be a smallish EVSE already out there that could handle this, one that could possibly be used with both 220v and 480v. Darn. I had previously thought it was just a standard 220v. I've parked next to it in my e46 for the past 9 years and never realized it was 480v. When...

How do I take advantage of a 480v outlet at work?

I've been searching but not really finding much info. there is a 480v plug at work that I would like the ability to charge my i3, hasn't come in yet, from. Is this feasible? I thought it was just a 240v, but turns out its 480v.

Re: Newbie Question about $7,500 Credit and Tax liability

^ I plan to artificially increase my income as well, transfer monies from a traditional IRA to a ROTH IRA. Its the only way for me to take full advantage of the $7500 too. I just got educated about this yesterday, I did not realize your traditional IRA would be taxed when you retire, I just didn't k...

Re: Newbie Question about $7,500 Credit and Tax liability

I'm no math wiz, but I do believe as long as you typically pay in more than $7500, you will get to use the full amount. So I gather that you typically pay in $20k net and should be able to claim the full amount. This will increase your refund next year handsomely, or, since there are still 8 months ...

Re: Home Charger - Get it from BMW or ?

If you want the fancy BMW charger check eBay, I recently saw one sell for $620 shipped. Some i3/i8 buyers get them built into their deal and might already have a charger so they sell them.

I'll probably go that Blink Route.
