Re: Battery Capacity Testing

...There are other reasons to believe that a natural log model best describes battery aging so with a bit of luck I will have a useable battery for some years to come. CZeroOwner, thank you for your graphs and analysis. Agree that the log line is perhaps a better approximation, which bodes well for...

Onboard Charger / DC-DC Interchangeability

I unsuccessfully looked through our recent Onboard Charger (OBC) threads for a discussion of OBC evolution over the years, especially as it affects interchangeability. Does anyone know if the 2016 US i-MiEV OBC is directly interchangeable with a 2012 i-MiEV's OBC?

Re: What's inside a cell?

kiev, thank you for posting. Interesting that the "cell" is actually two paralleled cells. Looking at the opened package I don't see a fusible link between the two cells. My impression is that individual cell short-circuit failures are rare(?), although Tesla's configuration has such a fus...

Re: Need a longer range ev

So, DougC, what did you finally settle on? We're up in Medford (came up a few days ago for Thanksgiving to get away from that choking smoke in the SF Bay Area) and I was talking with my brother-in-law who loves his Bolt and recounted how he now despises going to gas stations... :roll: As a sidenote ...

In case anyone is interested in further beating this topic to death, I came across these two applicable threads over on the Tesla TMC forum - https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/does-the-way-you-regen-make-any-difference-to-the-amount-of-charging-done.133056/ https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/thre...

Re: Bay Area to Lake Tahoe Excursion

Spurred on by Aerowhatt's great graphics, I'm slowly trying to integrate both the GPS track data and the various consumption numbers (many missing due to both Android power loss and Bluetooth dropout issues). In the meantime, I did manage to salvage and extract my GPS track off the Garmin, the orang...
