Re: Battery Checkup at Dealership

Sounds like you got the same service advisor as me... Beaverton Kia? Lol. Dude insisted, multiple times, there was "no test in the world" that could tell you the health of your battery.

Re: What should I know before a battery replacement?

Was I mistaken in understanding that 27 kWh = 100% SOH, and 110% comes from Kia unofficially installing overcapacity 30 kWh batteries in new models? Regarding the SOH test, I've heard experiences similar to yours from several members. Which is odd, since I brought multiple Soul EVs to my local Kia ...

Re: What should I know before a battery replacement?

I am a recent '15 battery recipient. I got a remanufactured pack, rated at 110% SOH, same as the original 27kWh pack. I don't expect it to degrade any worse than a new one, we don't know how many of the cells have been replaced, it could even be all of them! So far mine has not degraded at all (arou...

Re: Soul Spy?

Would you buy the Soul EV Spy android app, if it was priced at $15 at google play store? Is it worth it? Why or why not? What is the value of the app, if not $15? What are the currently existing need-to-have features of the app? What features are wanted, but missing from the app currently? What are...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

After forcing a calibration (run to <20% then charge to 100%) my reman battery is showing an estimated 100% SOH in SoulSpy. min and max det both read 1.

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

It updated last night... My SOH was steadily declining over the last month from 84 to 77%. SOH was 36.7% this morning, holy moly. I thought it was a glitch until I read your reply. But the math checks out, I typically go 30-35 miles on a charge. I chalked it up to some highway driving, and was wait...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

Not sure what "normal" is but I think .2 is quite significantly off of that, that's about how mine were looking as well before the replacement. Looks like you have at least 2 bad cells. Have you updated Soul Spy? The new version has a more accurate SOH estimator, what is it saying yours is...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

Any update on this? I'm looking at needing a battery replacement and am interested in the type of battery they use to replace it with. Also I'm doubtful they would actually replace the battery with one that has exactly 70% SOH since it would only have to drop 1% for it to be replaced again I just r...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

- I still have no proof that battery replacements for the 27kWh cars are now being doing with 30kWh packs. But there are certainly many stories about this now. There is a 2014 here in Jeju that just had its battery replaced after 110,000km. Kia told the owner that the new battery was 30kWh. I want ...

Re: Soul Spy?

I should have some data soon to help with refining the SOH estimate. Have recent logs and just had Kia tell me yesterday my SOH was 40%. You had mentioned logs from before and after a Kia SOH test, yes? I Will try to get access to the car to get a post-test datasaet as well. Coincidentally my SOC pr...
