Which SPX charger do you have? The only curly cord we saw was the ginormous Voltec, and that was one of the reasons we went with the SPX Power Xpress. (We also liked the increased amperage for potential future vehicle requirements, as well as its portability to take to our cottage on weekends.)
Unfortunatley, we are now starting to get the SES light on due to a charging fault, but only experienced a no-charge one time. Luckily, I saw the text come in regarding the fault, and I went out to unplug and re-plug, which "fixed" it. The Volt has been to the dealership twice to clear the code with no real assurance that it won't happen again. We are on a time-of-day electric rate, so it really helps the electric bill to use the delay. Does anyone know if there is a known issue with either the Power Xpress charger and/or the delay based on rate and departure time? Any fixes other than not using the delay setting?
