Re: Black Screens following charging

I've had this once this CY. To me it was like the system was restarting itself. Five minutes and it was all back to normal. I guess as we are all using our cars a lot less at the moment, anything out of the ordinary stands out a mile/kilometre. I have to go out today to get some milk and stuff. I'm ...

Just the use of the phrase “Chinese virus” pretty much tells me all I need to know about you.
Out of interest, where did the virus start?
My American friends have been calling this the Trump Virus for over a month. Who really knows eh?

Re: EV Myth Busted (Again)

In addition, it is nice to know when you are driving I-Pace your contribution to Co2 emissions is Zero! It doesn’t matter whatever country you buy electricity from under the EU Emission Trade Scheme (ETS). When people increasingly swap from ICEs to EVs the demand for electricity will increase, but ...

We have a holiday booked in October and received advice that it may not happen. It is likely to drag on for longer the more people think it’s clever to go out and ignore the rules.
Same here. Late September to Sweden (Kiruna). Getting back the deposits might become an issue.

Mine was booked in for today, unfortunately it's been cancelled.
I found out today that my next trip to the Dentists has been canceled. It was due at the end of August. Is that how long this thing is expected to go on?
I'll be going stir crazy well before then.

Re: WattCat - InControl remote app for Android

I was taking advantage of the bright sun today and charging the car with the granny charger. It consumes very close to the output of my solar panels. Anyway, I moved slider to stop at 60% charge. But, I noticed that the time to 'Full' didn't change. Would it be better or more accurate to show the ti...

EV Myth Busted (Again)

This is all about the amount of emissions an EV actually has over its useful life. " The new research from the universities of Exeter, Nijmegen - in Th...

Re: WattCat - InControl remote app for Android

Thanks for bearing with me through all the updates :) no, thank you for all your excellent work. I know just how hard it can be to get software effectively 'bullet proof'. You have a willing set of testers out there who give lots of quality feedback which from I know from personal experience really...
