Re: BMS software update

...This is the third time the BMS is updated/reset... I have never had a BMS update in 5 years on my blue car. The white car got a BMS upgrade when they changed the battery. I assume that these fixes are cumulative so that the latest update includes all the previous ones. Have you noticed many chan...

Re: BMS software update

Today I went to the garage for the recall of the Electronic Braking System software update in the Netherlands. After the software update was finished, I was told that also another update popped up (brand new?) for the BMS. They could not tell me what the update did, but apparently an improvement. No...

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 Nor...

Re: Vehicle-to-Grid Charging.

Here an article about V2H and some calculations if EV or Powerwall is more interesting . This article is of course very dependent on the electricity tariffs. The use of a V2H enabled charger can reduce the electricity bill by up to 85% with the Nissan Leaf 2018, compared to just charging the EV with...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- The Soul EV battery is made by SK Innovation. The I oniq Electric battery by LG Chem. Does this mean that before 2017 LG Chem had better battery tech than SK Innovation. We don't have enough data to compare the newer cars yet. - The I oniq Electric battery of the 28 kWh has more Cobalt percentage...

Re: 2016 vs 2017 differences worth considering?

The difference quick charge speed I mentioned came from the 2017 model year overview: https://www.kiamedia.com/us/en/models/soul-ev/2017 Specifically—"Also new for 2017, the fast charge now provides more energy (94% of charge)...". I think this is only at DC fast charge stations and previ...
