  1. smart fortwo Electric Drive
    Hello, Newbie here, just bought a 2017 Smart ED with low mileage. I will be parking my Smart in the driveway - my wife uses the garage - and will be installing an outdoor (120V) outlet for charging. Two questions: Has anyone used a "smart" (WIFI-enabled) outlet for charging their ED so that...
  2. smart fortwo Electric Drive
    I am new to the EV scene and have recently gotten a 2016 smart fortwo ED. I made the mistake of leaving it overnight charging at a level 2 charger (J1772 plug based I believe). I got a message from my charging provider that the car is drawing very little power and may be fully charged. I...

    I just purchased a 2013 SmartCar electric and I love it! I want from golf cart to Bombadier (same size as smart and looks very similiar) to a GEM to this SmartCar. Oh btw I still have the GEM and it's for sale...another topic though. I was wondering when should I charge this? The other carts...

    I have read a few posts and I am still not 100% of what to expect when using the departure time setting (A/C On) in terms of when the charging will start. I expected the charging system to project the time needed to charge and delay charging until the remaining time was just greater than needed...
  7. smart fortwo Electric Drive
    I am new to the world of electric vehicles - just got a smart ED about 3 weeks ago. (Love the car by the way, but it's in the shop today to repair an oil leak at the right rear axle.) Before getting the car I was planning to install a 240V charging device in the garage to provide faster...
  8. smart Operation and Maintenance
    When my Dad leaves his Smartcar unrun in the driveway for a month, the battery is dead, requiring him to get AAA to jump it via the floor carpet removal. #1) How can I tell if his battery is one of the defective ones that should be replaced for free by the dealer? I think he had some...
