    Pretty happy with what i got! my wife & kids love me!

    Antye Qi Charging case for my Iphone 7plus... Works fantastic! fits in the "slot" for the phone and charges flawlessly...

    Carista Bluetooth OBDII Programer... Also amazing! was able to customize a ton of things on the car including removing the annoying Reverse Beep... and changed the quick Lane change to 5 blinks... super easy to use!

    Also got a cool Wall Mount EVSE Holster and cable loop...

    did anyone else score?

    Does the Qi charger charge faster than 300-400mA? Even if it worked flawlessly, that charging rate, which has been reported, is totally useless to me.

    Way cool! I went to their site to find out more and discovered it can't do these type of operations on my old school gen 2; just basic CEL functions. :cry: That $39 yearly subscription is pretty steep but the $10 for one week should work for most folks who just want to make changes like you did. http://www.caristaapp.com/vehicle/Toyota/Prius%201st%20and%202nd%20gen

    I did get a couple of basic black license plate frames for the old girl. They will replace the still original and very faded dealer units.

    How would I know that? I know it went from 90% up to 100% charge in about a 35 -40 minute drive?

    Although if you buy the Carista Adapter you get a 30 day Free Trial... :) so i will only have to buy the subscription if i need to help Friends or change my car back, etc... ;)

    Well, I use an app that monitors charge current.

    If it took 35 minutes to finish a charge, I'd call that super slow. My 1A slow charger will do that in 15 minutes or so.

    If you know your battery capacity you can figure it out by timing how long it takes to increase charge percentage, preferably when below 80%, and just do the math.

    Remember, charge rate doesn't mean much when you are above somewhere in the 80% range.

    I got the Carista for Christmas. I was disappointed to find out you have to pay for the subscription. The month you get free only works if you buy the year subscription

    That is not true... I won't be charged for the year subscription until January 26th.... and I can cancel before then with no charge...

    I hear it in my Advanced model. I think it's part of the Intelligent Clearance Sonar feature, which is exclusive to Advanced.
