Re: Possible Cooling System Problem??

My theories are a weak cell or a battery pack that’s been sitting a long time.

As for discharging without driving, running the heater would be the quickest way. It should automatically turn off when the turtle appears. Or, if you have a garage that needs dehumidified, park it inside and run the A/C.

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

Sadly, CO2 concentration is still climbing and is currently at 415.43 ppm, so a 2-month long 10-15% reduction in global emissions didn't make a measurable difference on the curve. Combine that with the fact that most environmental progress made hasn't kept up with total emissions, ever feel like you...

Re: Cost to replace an i-miev battery?

Anyone got first hand experience of a decent spot welder to put batteries together with Yes. I have a KWeld unit. Made in Germany and works really well. I bought it to build an eBike battery. Two pieces of advice: make sure the charge/discharge rates on the cells are compatible with the car (125 am...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

So, with all the fanfare over COVID-19, what hasn't been making the news, for good or bad reasons, is the environmental benefit of shutting down much of China's manufacturing. While it's still too early to get a clear signal, CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has mostly leveled off at 414 ppm. The...

Re: The Magnet Hack?

I have my doubts given that amperage draw is driven by a PWM signal, which wouldn't change in the presence of a magnet.

Re: Add another OBC Failure

Just got Koorz back from the dealer. It tested good for them (which I was expecting) and fully charged without issue at home last night. I have it plugged into the same station at work to see if it stops before full charge again.

Re: FYI brake vacuum pump recall for early 2020

Just got this done on Koorz. Sounds the same, but it is a new pump.

Re: using a Lev50 pack for solar

If the inverter and charge controller can handle pack voltage, that’s awesome. As for keeping the stock BMS, that would depend on information others on this forum may have. I don’t know how functional the BMS is with the pack separate from the car.

Re: using a Lev50 pack for solar

As long as you have a functioning battery management system and the solar system either has a lithium ion charge profile or you can manually set max and minimum voltages, this should work. For your voltage range, take 3.5 volts and 4.1 volts for each cell and multiply for the number of cells wired i...
