Re: Citroen C Zero v Renault Zoe.

There are two other chargers I could use on route, but if 30 minutes will give 80% capacity, the less remaining charge the better. Remember that they had very different fast charge systems. The C-Zero in DC (CHAdeMO) The Zoe in AC (the old 210, three-phase up to 43 kW... if you find that charger; t...

Re: Citroen C Zero v Renault Zoe.

For the C-Zero and public chargers, you will need (I think) a Mennekes/J1772 cable, like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Premium-Charging-EV-5meter-Mennekes/dp/B00YMZ99CY/ The Zoe has his own Mennekes/Mennekes cable, but (I think) don't has a EVSE for charge in a socket. Edit: don't know why, but my l...

Re: Citroen C Zero v Renault Zoe.

- The Zoe can do a 90-mile trip without recharge, i-MiEV/C-Zero/iOn no, at normal speeds. A charger five miles from your destination? OK if is a CHAdeMO quick charger, but with a normal charger you need probably 4 hours... - If your Citroën dealer do not cooperate, can you try a Mitsu or Peugeot? Ot...

Re: How many years / miles can we expect battery failure?

I have the same questions since we live in Phoenix. This summer has seen some very hot days, up to 114 over severals days, yesterday 112 or so. At the moment, we haven't seen any degradation, but we do wonder. Mitsubishi replaced our battery last December. I also wonder, but can't find anything to ...

Re: Replacing LEV50 modules with 18650s

When we push on the accelerator we have something like 3C in the LEV-50; 3C is very close to the limit of some 18650's. I wonder if, putting 24 or so in parallel, possible imbalances do work some cells at 4C and others at 2C, causing a rapid deterioration. Just thinking, I have none experience with ...

Re: Replacing LEV50 modules with 18650s

Sometimes I've thought, but to replace a single defective cell in a battery out of warranty, if the LEV-50 is difficult to find.

Re: Simple battery capacity calculation

We've discussed this before and decided that doing a capacity check by running the battery down by driving isn't as accurate as a steady load. For example, a discrepancy of the Wh Reg value has been discovered which will skew the results. I can't remember the topic title, though, if somebody wants ...
