I have just purchased a 2017 Bolt and will be picking it up on Saturday.

 

They are adding a $1,000 charger to the invoice since I told them I would be having the electrical work done on my house.

 

Is this the best charger or have other Bolt buyers gone elsewhere?

 

I'm hoping the other owners in Victoria and area would share their thoughts on this.

 

Thanks

Steve

I recommend the FLO Home X5. A great Canadian product with smart phone app and software updates to the unit.

We bought a new 2017 Bolt two weeks ago, and have been charging at home so far. The dealer gave us a ChargePoint card. When we read the so-called Privacy Policy, we hesitated to join. It appears that they can use our personal information as they wish, which may leave us vulnerable to unwanted intrusion. Has anyone using ChargePoint run into problems in respect to privacy? This could include regular marketing contacts that we can't unsubscribe from.

We have also read about Flo, a Canadian company, with fewer charging stations on the Island than ChargePoint, but perhaps Flo would be a better choice. Any advice would be welcome.

I have both Chargepoint and Flo. Never had a problem with Chargepoint and I've used it often on the island. The Flow app I've never used. You'll also need Greenlots if you want to use a level 3 charger.

Does anyone know if "phantom power" is used if the charge cord is left plugged in, even if the battery is fully charged? There is phantom power almost everywhere--TVs, microwaves, clock radios, desk top computer...
