Re: Flat battery on a new car with Yuasa battery

Sounds like something in the car needs to wake up for the car to check the 12v battery and start charging. Locking/unlocking, probably, triggers this wakeup. I wonder if it can be triggered automatically with a preconditioning or something. I assume you can unlock/lock the car via the app, but many ...

Re: Compact Type2-Type2 Charging Cable

For some reason Amazon doesn't stock it. Basically it is this but coiled: www.amazon.de/-/en/dp/B087QHRLYS They do list one phase 32A coiled one: www.amazon.de/-/en/EV-Electric-Vehicle-Charging-Cable/dp/B08NKBH4QM The 16A weights 1,5 kg, while the 32A weights almost 3 kg, so it is twice as bulky. An...

Re: Compact Type2-Type2 Charging Cable

I jumped into the rabbit hole of reaearching the available options of the coiled cables (ended up ordering one myself :D ) It seems that there are a couple of things to keep in mind. 1. 1 or 3 phase. To my understanding the E supports only 1 phase, so there is no point to get a thicker 3 phase cable...

Re: Compact Type2-Type2 Charging Cable

Have you considered a coiled option? In a way it takes less space and should be easier to take out and put away. I don't have one, but I've seen it in use and considering it myself. The only issue I can see with this option is that it might put an additional stress on the charging port if stretched ...

Re: Outside temperature not changing

Does it not change at all or it takes a lot of time to start changing? I park mine in an underground garage daily. It takes at least 10 minutes of driving outside for the temperature to start updating. It has been like this since the beginning.

Re: New buyer advice

Since my landscape is mostly flat, I don't use the handbrake that much and my sequence is the same as you have described. I didn't notice the car doing anything automatically with it.

As for the socket, mine has the limit stated on its cover. It is 230V 1500W for the European version.

Re: 12v Battery Best Practices

I am still on my factory battery (the car is 3 years old), zero issues so far (knocking on the wood). I haven't seen any evidence so far that leaving the car plugged in will affect the 12v battery in any way. There are several reports on this forum with 12v batteries dying when the car is plugged in...

Re: Charge to 80% or 100%?

You have to trust the Honda engineers know what they are doing for the advertsied lifetime of the battery. After all they installed an expenive heating/cooling system when some other manufacturers don't even bother. They put the limiter there for a reason, we know li-ion can last longer under certa...

Re: Michelin Pilot Sport 4 vs e-Primacy Tyres (20% better efficiency?)

Out of curiosity, why did you pick the e-Primacy over the standard Primacy tyre? I am considering replacing my Pilot Sport that came with the car with Primacy tyres, but I am leaning more towards the non e version. It seems that the e version has better rolling resistance values but at a cost of wor...
