Having three i-MiEVs that all respond seemingly identically, my curiosity drove me to pick up a ScanTool LX and install EvBatMon. Here are the results:Mitsi
, our original 2012 SE, now with 43,102miles (69366km)
on it, 38.2Ah
, condition = 79.58. This battery has been babied since birth (except for the two months it sat fully charged in the dealer's showroom
), only occasionally charged to 100% and then driven immediately, and never ever seen turtle. My wife is a featherfoot.Mitti
, our used 2012 SE Premium purchased at 24,652miles (39674km) but with battery replaced at 27,942miles (44968km), now with 36,349miles (58948km) and thus 8,407miles (13530km)
on the battery, 40.3Ah
, condition = 83.96. This new battery has has never seen turtle nor left at 100%SoC and has barely been exposed to high temperatures for long. I'm the primary driver and nowadays am normally a leadfoot and also run at very high speeds on the Interstate, except when hypermiling.Moto
, our used 2012 SE Premium purchased at 16,701miles (26878km), now with 20,766miles (34420km)
on it, 39Ah
, condition = 81.25. Been babied and featherfooted since we purchased it.
I'll let you'all comment about the above readings. For myself -
a) I wonder how valid it is to assume that a 'new' battery pack is at 48Ah, as reflected by the "condition" parameter?
b) I would have expected a higher capacity from Mitti
if the replacement battery had been new.
For me and having become very comfortable using CaniOn, the most useful feature of EvBatMon is its ability to provide the battery pack state of health - invaluable when buying a used car. For daily use I'm sticking with CaniOn as the MyTrip is now configurable and Wh/km and battery temperature are my most-used trip interval parameters.
Um, zzcoopej, how does your database deal with more than one i-MiEV owner?
