Wow, a brand new pack shows 45.8kWh capacity!


Ah! 45kwh would be nice! of course we are talking about Ah not KWh... ;-)

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

I received my car back last week. So, how does my new battery-pack look like? https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2nh4ZMDv45eLTI3STVzWEJJaDQ https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2nh4ZMDv45eR1JZM2NKSEZaMG8 It is better than I thought: 2 days ago I drove 78 kms using 50% of charge (driving easily trough ...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

Kiev, 3 readings with canion with 3 different soc, 1 with evbatmon. I took these readings before taking the car for the "cure". Oddly enough those readings seems quite good to me. How is it possible that I started with 80 kms RR with just 12 bars and I end up 4 months later with 16 bars, 1...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

Hi Jumpjack, Well, I still have the old pack. It seems Citroen had issues in receiving the new pack from Japan. Now it seems it has finally arrived in Italy last week, so they should call me in the next days... maybe... Meanwhile my battery pack is always better, now it shows 120 kms on the RR gauge...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

Surprise surprise! after discharging the car completely (to a complete stop), I fully recharged. To my surprise I now have all the bars on the "tank" gauge, this is the first time it ever happens :shock: . When I first had my car in December it showed just 12 bars when fully charged. CanIo...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

thank you Joes, I am enjoying it, and even having fun experimenting with it, knowing in some days I will have a new pack. Cells won't rejuvenate, even the technician at Citroen told me that. He told me cycling the battery with deep discharges / full recharges will probably give me some range gain bu...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

I made a new experiment. I ran the car with full charge (91.5% SOC in my case) till it stopped completely (0% SOC). Thanks to CanIon I managed to calculate when I needed to approach home (driving very slowly). SOC history: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2nh4ZMDv45eampFa2lnZ1lnMG8/view?usp=sharing...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

JoeS, that was quite a special car, they displayed it in some cities, and just for 1 year. In Milan I know they used a ChaDemo charger (somebody told me at Citroen), in the other cities they had a Mennekes to Yazaki cable (I received that too with the car). then it has been left alone between 2 and ...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

Gyver, that's great information! Now, let her slowly charge up fully, and what happens? My slowest charge is with my stock evse at 10 amps, 220v (standard here). this is the battery status after a full charge this morning: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2nh4ZMDv45eOHNFcWJSRWlDQnc/view?usp=sharin...

Re: Battery cell failing at just 2900 km (1800 miles)

The OBDlink has arrived!

CanIon is wonderful!

here it is the first data (at 58% SOC)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2nh4ZMDv45eT3Z4VzlUU3JuZjA/view?usp=sharing

it is clear that cells 10 and 15 behave differently than the others..
