Re: measuring capacity loss through CanIon

So I had another deep discharge and full recharge but no new Ah value was added to the vehicle log. Perhaps it is just periodic in nature when the system records a value??

I wish there were more info available from Mitsu on this subject. I don't have any faith in EvBatMon or the accuracy, origin, or viability any parameters it sets.

Re: Anyone tried wrapping iMiev with glossy vinyl?

I think the iMiev Blue is really nice! Wish I had one. M wife and I run the park/marker lights during the day on ours. It really makes the cars far more noticeable to other traffic. Doesn't use enough power to be noticeable either.

Re: Remote fob range extension?

Opening the remote for the iMiEV, I see that it uses (2) 3V CR2032 batteries. So, it is already powered with 6V. If you replaced the (2) CR2032 batteries in the iMiEV's remote with (4) CR2016 batteries, it would effectively double the power to 12V. Two questions: 1). Would this be safe to do in the...

Re: 2nd Gen Tesla Roadster

I'm surprised that road tyres are even produced that can handle that amount of acceleration and speed. That's the one noise it makes in the videos -- squealing tires. They may not hold up long. Yes a car like this, driven like it's hard not to drive it, will go through tires fast. For one thing, to...

Re: Tesla Truck

Heres what I would do with mine: Custom trailer roof of all solar panels. Trailer converted into a really nice and practical RV. All electric , no propane, no generator, none of the impractical nonsense found on current RV's. Composting toilet(s) leaving far more stored water for relaxing showers (e...

Re: 2nd Gen Tesla Roadster

I'd be willing to bet that that car will never make it to production with those specs... but happy to be proven wrong. Great design, i'll say that though. I'm surprised that road tyres are even produced that can handle that amount of acceleration and speed. Much, much nicer to look at than the curr...

Re: measuring capacity loss through CanIon

Does anyone know how to re-initiate reading of Ah in cani0n ? So this is interesting. I had set my iMiev to charge in the early morning hours of Saturday on Friday evening. Apparently I got some food poisoning and spent most of Saturday down for the count :( . As a result the car charged as schedul...

Re: 2nd Gen Tesla Roadster

Really nice looking car! Not much practical about it. But hey to get performance like that you have to check practical at the door upon entry. In spite of all that and the steep price tag. If I could drop $200K and pay $12K in insurance per year without blinking. I would be tempted. 620 miles of ran...
