i-miev vs tesla s pack dcqc contactors

From reviewing schematics to compare and contrast: Both packs have two main contactors inside the pack for the B+ and B- buss lines. The 'i' uses two dcqc contactors inside the pack to route to both the B+ and B- sides of the pack directly and independently of the main contactors. The main contactor...

Re: What is it like to run out of juice?

Howdy Malm, if i look at your canion screens, it appears that 14.5% SOC at 50,784 km had cells at H:3.290 L:2.755, but later at 63,461 km it showed 0.0% SOC with cells at H:3.505 L:3.250. i'm puzzled that the lower voltage cells indicated a higher SOC, and the higher voltage cells indicated lower SO...

Re: What is it like to run out of juice?

Those cell voltages are all over the place--i would have thought or expected a more level draw-down where all the cells were about the same.

What do you suppose causes the cell voltage variation?

Remotely related to Blink Level 2 at home

i have a Blink wired in to 240vac, and it is on my home wifi network. i have discovered that when charging from the Blink, if i power up my Remote Climate Control and Charge Checker, the Blink immediately opens the contactor and stops the charging...? Or maybe it is the car telling it to stop, but i...

Re: CHAdeMO Questions

Sounds like it. Does it charge at all or does it trip immediately after the safety checks? I'm wondering if the port's polarity is backwards on the car side. From within 10 seconds or less after the safety check. The battery symbol comes up on the display and fills it in green up to the level that ...

Re: CHAdeMO Questions

i have tried at least a dozen times at the local Eaton dcqc with no luck, the main breaker kicks inside the charger box and requires a maintenance call to reset. My local miev racing buddy went down there this past week to give it a go-- and it worked fine for him with no problems. Hmm...looking lik...

Re: Map of Cell numbers and locations and temp sensors

edit: i think the cell layout shown on page 2 is not correct, the picture should be removed or deleted.

a correct version can be found here:

Any success for Miev at an Eaton Chademo?

There is a local DC fast charger available downtown, Fountain Circle Eaton Chademo . It seems to work for the nissan leaves, but always trips out the internal breaker whenever i have tried to charge. i think it was donated by the nissan dealer--but do the Eaton chargers maybe not like little meves? ...

Re: Battery only charging halfway

Did you get a canion reading of cell 10 voltage compared to the rest? Is cell 10 just really very low or is the whole pack now lower overall? It's all very curious that cell 10 can't be charged...? Sure will be interesting to someday get the source code to see what the controller is doing, or thinks...
