The key difference for you and me is that LFP batteries can be charged to 100% each day, whereas lithium-ion batteries are recommended to be set to between 80% and 90% to avoid faster degradation of your battery.
Tesla has now updated it's recommendations that it's LFP can be safely...
I was trying to charge the car at a public charger last week, and it wouldn't connect to start charging. I noticed the driver display was showing a red battery indicator. Looking at the manual, it said it was a Low-voltage Battery Charging System Malfunction Warning Lamp.
I locked the car...
I want another battery in standby, but do I have to order it original? Unlike old cars, there are no avaliable third party batteries when I check other stores. And if no third party avaliable, how much will a new, original cost?
I’m new to the forum and the proud owner of a 3 year old MG ZS EV exclusive (2020 model 44.5 KWh), which I’m very happy with overall, despite a few niggles. I’ve owned the vehicle for 3 months and it's my first EV. I’ve had a couple of holiday trips to North Wales and it performed well...
After a 7day holiday, return to Gatwick Long Stay South car park to pick up our MG4. Eventually find car which isn't responding to the fob to show me where she is.
Doors - don't open!
Call to the AA - 2hrs atleast!
I can't open the drivers door with the emergency key so go and guard our luggage...
Is anyone else getting this error?
Sometimes when I turn the vehicle on the car appears to go through the start up process but when I go to put the car in to reverse the gear selector on the dash changed to N and nothing happens on the gear knob (it stays in park).
If I go to turn the vehicle...

Hi I wish to get a 12 amp feed direct from the 12 volt battery into the cab to run a ham radio transceiver. How do I get through the engine compartment without boring holes as its a leased car. Any thoughts. Brian MM0GLX
Has anybody found a solution for a portable 12v charger?
I’m looking for something to keep in the boot should a 12v battery failure occur while away from home.
Standard chargers all require 240v supply and im not sure if any portable boosters can be used to trickle charge.
Car is a ZS Trophy LR, just under a year old.
We have started seeing messages that the "Low voltage battery needs charging, do not leave car more than 3 days unused." Or words to that effect.
Yesterday evening we parked up with the battery registering 13.8V. Later in the evening it was down to...
The Warranty given by mg, what exactly does that cover if the car goes up in flames because the battery has got a fault do they replace the car, the insurance companies have gone very expensive because of claims through battery fires I can't see that, that is applicable when the manufacturers...
Slightly weird behaviour from my car this morning.
We got back from a fortnight in France yesterday eve (almost entirely successful and lots of free vending! But that's another story) showing 10% SOC. It had been fast charged only on the continent, approx 5 or 6 times over the last...
The 12v battery seems to be the Achilles heal in many EVs as they are smaller than those typically found in ICE vehicles. Is it possible/economical to replace the 12v battery with a higher capacity offering? Has anyone here done this.
Thanks in advance.
