Re: new program for monitoring charge readings

After getting this set up and running, I am disappointed to report that it doesn't display individual battery status or capacity on my newer 2016 iMiev. EVBatMon and CanIon have the same problem. Seems that nobody can figure out how to do this with newer models. Maybe it's just not possible? That's...

Re: Portable CHAdeMO

I found there's a facebook group for SETEC charger owners. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2285672388324912/?ref=group_header It's a nice way of learning how well they perform. It seems user Mark is talking to Setec in order to get a charger that accepts both single and three-phase input.

https://www.evseadapters.com/products/portable-chademo-ccs-combo-dc-quick-charger (Too bad the forum messes up the link -- have to copy and paste.) This thing is so tempting. I see the price has come down... but also, they now offer it as a dual-standard model, so it'd be somewhat future-proof. But...

Re: Strange things with quick charging

Anyway pertinent to this thread at the lower charge rate the AC does not run at all even though battery cell temps are on par with previous summers. :roll: Thinking there must be some charge rate cut off for incorporating the AC like PV1 has postulated. Aerowhatt Only on some cars, probably. If I s...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Hey! Yes we do! Three of them. Two between the city of São Paulo and Campinas and one at the university of São Paulo, broken, but I'll try to fix it. PlugShare indeed! Works best for us. Where are you? Portugal? As you probably noticed, my car is one of three i-MiEVs in Brazil... Scary! Best Clemen...

Re: Strange things with quick charging

My AC system never shuts down during QC. It runs all the way to 90-95%, when the car charges no more on Chademo. The highest temperature I observed on a single cell was around 47º, and a pack average of 38ºC. This was after multiple QC and highway speeds of 95-100km/h. Since I made the trick to dire...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

That's why I measure charging speeds using Canion and SOC. Some bars represent more SOC than others, so they're not that reliable. At 240V 14Amps, I charge 20% SOC per hour, except when I reach above 90%.

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Best of luck with your car. Didn't know you had Chademo chargers in São Paulo, but that's probably because I use electromaps. What's the best site to find charging stations in Brazil? Plugshare?

Re: i-MiEV (and clones) in non-supported (?) markets

I don't think triplets are that cheap in Europe. Like I said, the best deals for these cars are usually found buying in countries like France, and to find one at 5k€, it usually means it has a signifcantly degraded battery. And that's if you actually find one. Most of the offers are >7000€... Not ex...

Re: A/C sticker shock

I'm not sure about a non-working compressor. But when I had a faulty A/C fan motor, the cooling would stop after some seconds of starting a QC. But I still managed to make two Chademo chargers until I reached home, without the A/C running. Things got quite hot in the battery, but otherwise charged f...
