Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

The only way i can see for smoothing to be effective is to turn on all the balancers except for the lowest cell and try to bleed them down to the target value. This could be done at any SOC while the car is stationary and not charging. If there were any charging currents greater than 0.1 Amps, then...

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

The i909 from icarsoft will do everything except programming also, and it is much less expensive--but i don't need another data-reader, i want all the functions so i can do cell smoothing on my own time... Cell smoothing may also include charging to a higher voltage. But certainly it's main functio...

As with most warranty replacements, or repairs you only get the remainder of your original warranty on the new traction battery.

Re: measuring capacity loss through CanIon

Another thing is, how to interpret those readings. Does 35Ah versus 48Ah actually mean 27% SOH loss in my case ? Could be subjective, but I do not see 27% less daily range on this car :-) I've actually read somewhere, that with degradation, Mitsu's BMS allows different/lower voltages of cells to be...

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...
