Re: How good is the car's range prediction

So if the car often stops moving at 4.5%, then the RR is actually showing range 'til 5.5% and not 10% :roll: (..) Don RR shows range till 10%! I have constantly monitored that with Hobdrive app + ELM327. 10,5% charge - RR shows ~ 1km left. Maybe there is difference between EU and USA models. I usua...

Re: How good is the car's range prediction

RR shows range till 10% remainig capacity!!! when RR shows --- km, then there is 10% left.
Turtle light comes on at 8,5%.
Sometimes car stops @ 4,5%.

Re: Strange things with quick charging

As 1 bar is 1kWh Although we have 16 kWh, and 16 bars, I don't think the mapping is linear. NO! 1 bar isn't 1kWh. It represents charge percentage of capacity. 7 bars = 50-54% cahrge. 8 bars - 55-59% . In QC station I've calculated mine capacity from percantage and charged kWh. It's about 13,9 kWh (...

Re: Strange things with quick charging

Hi Gencis! My 2012 North Amercan version i-MiEV always stops charging at exactly 80% SoC. I have never tried plugging back in to see if it would go higher on CHAdeMO, but I believe others have done so successfully although by then the charge rate has really tapered off. Mine not exactly at 80% stop...

The premature shutoff of the fan during quick charging is befuddling, but normal. Yes, it ocurs around 70%. No idea why that happens.
(..)

Around 70% QC rate is 12- 5 kW, so at that rates battery isn't heating so much?

Re: Strange things with quick charging

While charging at the quick charging station I noticed thar air cooling turns off when I reach around 70% charge. Is it normal? Also for example yesterday I had long journey (540 km / 337 miles) and had 8 quick charges. Two times the charging was turned off by i-miev when I reached 58% and second t...
