Re: Ah Rate And Full Charge

Not sure what you mean by "Ah rate" - the Ah figure shown on the first screen is the battery management system's estimation of the usable Ah capacity of the battery. This figure doesn't depend on the current state of charge, but is an estimate of the usable full charge capacity. As for wha...

Re: Battery charging: Full versus Partial

Different cells: 18650 cylinder versus the LEV50 prismatic, and they use a different chemistry. Yuasa datasheet for our cells shows cycle life data of 5500 cycles at 100% DOD depth of discharge from 4.1 down to 2.75 with a loss of only 20% over that period (i.e 80% remaining). The design life is 10...

Nice picture. :)

Re: Charging Interruption

Just thought I'd reopen this topic, in case anyone is recording CaniOn during this Timeout to confirm DBMandrake's hypothesis that the cells are being balanced during this interval. As far as I know, Canion can't report the state of the cell balancers ? In which case you could only infer that balan...

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...
