Re: Strange things with quick charging

What is the treshold value of max allowed battery temperature? I had longer journey and used fast chargers. Max temperature I got was 41,7 C (107 F). The cooling system turned off when car reached 71 percent of charge.

Re: Strange things with quick charging

As I got OBD reader now I try to analize data and make the best of it. May be someone could say what is the critical temperature for the battery, i. e. what temperature has to be reached that it would be wise to stop and let battery to cool for few hours?

Re: Strange things with quick charging

My milage is around 26 K.
I-miev I am driving was produced in May 2012. So I think it did not have LEV50N batteries.
They were introduced in summer 2012.

Please check the Ah for the new I-miev. In this forum were debates about Ah for new batteries. Would it be 48 Ah or 50 Ah.

Re: Range extender !

Thank you for the information. Now I get better idea about batteries. I saw some videos in youtube, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlZ6BOzn41g&t=1s so thought this idea could work. But with your, JoeS, calculation I can see that carrying additional 130 kg plus it would cost around 1....

Re: Strange things with quick charging

As I bought the car, I also bought Carfax report. It shows that it had 2 manufacture recalls:
1. SRS impact sensor replacement
2. Passenger side airbag inflator replacement.

Battery was never changed.
Car was used in Minnesota. So this could be the case that battery is good shape

Re: Strange things with quick charging

To: 1kaspars nice to read that there are I-miev entusiasts in Latvia. I am from Lithuania. I hope next week I will have OBD reader so will try to check and calculate mine battery capacity. My Imiev is 6 years old, 25000 k. Also thank you for the relationship between bars and battery capacity percent...
