Re: Is my battery dying ?

Strange. The image is hosted on google drive - same as all my other images. I just checked on a browser that was not logged into my google account and I was able to view the image. I also tried it in both Chrome and IE. So not sure why you can't see the image! Can anyone else see it ? Unfortunately ...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

An interesting thing happened yesterday, the Ah capacity rating reported by Canion went up! :shock: From 36.1Ah to 37.1Ah... I've added this to an updated graph below: https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=140EkxrSuwNB7rUnOv7fwtDKEyr56Gind Some explanation of the newly added figures. Th...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

In all seriousness, though. DBMandrake, per your signature, your car is a 2011. When most of us here in the States bought our cars, there was an addition to the owners manual after it was printed in the form of an orange paper, stating that a change in the car's software made it so that a balance c...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

Do you have any information on the temperature of the batteries? Despite our mild climate, heavy use and rapid charging can heat up the cells and on a few wintery days, I have rapid charged which has heated up the battery and increased the range. I've been keeping an eye on battery temperatures (es...

Re: Canion

The OBDLink LX is the only bluetooth device that has ever been paired to the tablet, and it has not been paired to any other devices. I haven't tried turning off Wifi however. I'm pretty sure the issue is with the adaptor firmware itself - if I only plug the adaptor into the car just before I'm abou...

Re: CHAdeMO flap release not working

Are you sure the bowden cable sleeve hasn't come out of the bracket at the lever end ? That seems to be a very common problem with these, at least on the RHD models. Mine didn't work when I first picked it up (second hand) and that's all it was, and a lot of people have had the same problem. I belie...

Re: Battery Balancing L1 vs L2

Here in the UK there is no such thing as Level 1 charging since all our supplies are 240v, (Level 2) and yes, balancing is performed. The car always top balances to 4.1 volts if left to charge on Level 1/2 until the charge light goes out, but also sometimes seems to bottom balance if you start charg...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

DBMandrake, thank you for posting those images and analyses, and thanks for stress-testing your battery in the interest of science. My impression is that your battery is just fine and does not exhibit the dramatic individual cell failure which some of us have experienced (and which was cause for ba...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

I dont disagree with the data, but seems unlikely that two cells would weaken at the same time... though I do understand your concerns. I would want to do the cell balancing procedure and repeat this test a couple more times and keep an eye on those two cells. What "cell balancing procedure&qu...
