PM me for my phone number if you want this "insurance". :D Also there are 4 chargepoint free no card needed charging stations at the Calif. Science Center parking structure...if they're not ICEd...in Exposition Park near USC.

Thanks for the offer! I was looking for those actually at the science center that same infamous day. I was down there at the butterfly pavillion with my kids before we went to Santa Monica.

Where are they? I couldn't find them.

Doh - well that's not helpful.

Been getting a little more confident. I charged to 100% so I could go back and forth to work twice today. (had to go home for my lunch)

I'm back at work with 6 bars remaining. No problem. I did baby it the way here though both times... took Glendale Ave instead of the 2 and pretty much regened or coasted all the way to the 134 so getting to work maybe used 1 and a half bars.

No, Expo Park EVSEs are not paddle style. They are J connectors. They just switched them out. Here are their locations in the Science Center parking area.
One (1) on the West side of Level A of the parking structure down the same row as the other two (2) by the elevator
One (1) on the West side of Level B of the parking structure

If you find them ICEd, take a picture and email to Seana Campos, assistant general manager of Expo Park at scampos@cscmail.org
She sent me a very nice email stating that they had orders in for better signage and markings on the concrete for the spaces but that the state process moves slowly. Once clearly marked, she said the state officers would be vigilant in enforcement.

So check out their 4 charging stations! They are chargepoint, no card needed, no phone call needed...and they are free.

Good to know. They must have swapped them out right after I was there!

Nice to know about the Exposition chargers. Thanks for the heads up. I have also wondered about the LA Nissan dealer near the convention center, has any one used them and then gone over to the convention center? Seems like a cheap parking place to me, I called them a while back and they said they have 5, but are they available late night?

Anyone gone to Palmdale over the Crest yet? I am planning on doing it Sunday.

Thank you Ray for clearing up the bar issue - Eventually I will go get the upgrade, but since I have had no issues, I am not concerned about it.

I have found that drive is the best mode to have it in until you want to slow the car. If you are in ECO and going uphill, you are actually using energy trying to maintain speed - the regen is not worth the drag. I have also been experimenting with neutral, didn't know that was possible till I read about it on another thread - useful to maintain speed in many situations, especially freeway.

Back on topic a bit, I went from Altadena to LAX with almost a full charge and returned with almost half a charge, using the shortest distance option on the GPS, although on the way there it took me on the 110 freeway, but on the return took me through Downtown LA which I am sure cost me more juice. Without upgrade bar count was 3 to get there, 4 to get back, although I lost a 5th bar while parked in the garage listening to the radio. I did freeway speeds and kept with traffic the whole time.

wildcatzoo.org drive there on Sunday across a big mountain, sorry no public charging at this time.
Looking for grants to put in solar port so perhaps in the future...

I've heard of a few of these older paddle chargers being around -- such as at the Irvine Transit Center, I believe. Are there still any cars rolling that use those? Is it time to remove/replace them?
