Re: Any consumer implementations of vehicle-to-grid with the Kia Soul EV?

Wallbox Quasar If you Google that you will find the product I was talking about in my previous post. As of writing this, there doesn't seem to be any further update or purchase option available. I just remembered that a lot of YouTube channels I watch covered it at the time and I was quite impressed...

Re: Any consumer implementations of vehicle-to-grid with the Kia Soul EV?

IIRC - You're limited to around 1kW from the 12v battery. Surge might be a bit higher, but beyond that it's too demanding. A possible good source of information would be from the Prius forums as this is something I've looked at doing myself with my Prius at the time. Now for the OP question: in Nort...

Re: 2015-16 MY Recall

Yeah, this was a known issue awhile back but they're finally getting around to "fixing" it. I had the work done last week, so far the only thing I've noticed is that the car now applies the emergency brake every time you shift into Park. The only reason why this new behavior bothers me is ...

Re: Kia Navigation Updater is available in US and Canada

While all of this is nice, I'm actually just hoping this update fixes the issue I had in the winter where my car would randomly fail to pre-heat in the morning. It seems like this was a known issue with a certain version of software and would affect both pre-conditioning and charge timers. There wa...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

Not trying to push back on what you've said, but if you rarely (if ever) run your battery down low and then charging it back to full - your BMS isn't calibrating itself therefor I suspect your 110% SoH isn't an actual number to be trusted. Everything you'll listed suggests this. Run the battery belo...

Re: Kia Navigation Updater is available in US and Canada

Changing the country was the ticket to getting the software, so thank you for that tip! :D Between the download, the transfer to the SD card and the install - it took quite awhile. So far I've noticed: - The car now automatically switches over to the paired Bluetooth device upon connection. I'm not ...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

Hopefully in the next while I'll get to join the club of getting a new battery replacement. So far the ordeal has been quite the test of my patience, but hopefully today is the final step before getting approved. It took 3 days to get a hold of the dealership and had I not known what others have sha...
