Re: Battery Ageing Model

Totally 370 $$ Each cell is sold for 57$, Labor charge is 142$ The cells are used ones, but of excellent SOH, the shop got them from a wrecked Soul EV with less than 15,000 Km ODO meter. I know a guy who did the same 8 months ago, and his car is still fine, it travels around 175 km's on a full charge.

I still do not know the results of this repair as the BMS needs a few trips to recalculate the correct range and battery health. Before the replacement, the car was showing 58 miles on full charge on the dash. However,...
