Re: Battery Ageing Model

- Thanks ZuinigeRijder. That's great data. Your car is doing really well. You have the best battery efficiency figures for any car in this thread - 17.7 kWh/100km. I am assuming that is because you drive on flat terrain - no hills in NL - , and your commute has few traffic lights / speed cameras. T...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

My Kia Soul EV from September 2014 has now driven 108251km and the SOH is now 93.55%. Note that the previous owner already got a SOH of approx. 102% after the first year. Seems that it pays off to mainly charge till 80% SOC (yes, my model has still the option to charge till 80%) and try to keep it a...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

The screenshot on the previous post made me check some statistics from my old 2015 Soul. The interesting numbers are the Max and Min Deterioration Cell numbers. They show Max det #2 and Min det #8. My car had a change in deterioration numbers at 148 occations. The Min det was #8 in 76%, the Max det...

Re: Battery suddenly only charging to 90%

Are you charging with slow charger? 110 Volt? 220 Volt?

My battery was also not 100% when pre-heating, because pre-heating used more than 2000 Watt, which my trickle charger delivers at 220 Volt.

Re: Firmware update to DC fast charge to 94%?

...I did ask for a BMS update and after the update in August, I now can fast charge to 94% directly instead of 84%... ZuinigeRijde thanks for the latest info. Previously you had a BMS firmware update in June 2017 for a 12V battery charging issue - Battery Ageing Model Do you remember if the fast ch...

Re: Firmware update to DC fast charge to 94%?

- On the Internet there are numerous reports of all kinds of magic behavior by this upgrade. It magically restores your battery to new! The claim that it allows charging on Chademo straight through to 94% has plenty of non-reliable sources. The only reliable poster to discuss this was Elmil in Swed...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

My Kia Soul EV is almost 4 years old (26 August 2014) and had a check at the garage (85.000 km) here in the Netherlands. I asked for a KDS State of Heath readout. The SOH% was reported as 94.2%. With Torque i measured 5 days ago a value of 96.45 (Avg Det 13.6, Max Det 14.6, Min Det. 12.5). My BMS wa...
