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...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

Some piece of bad news. To quote you from before: According to the lab data 45C (113F) is the threshold when major deterioration starts to occur. Take a look at this: https://i.lensdump.com/i/8qioMc.md.png https://i.lensdump.com/i/8qiNCZ.md.png My SOH % has dropped down from 110% (29.7 kWh) to 109....

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

- I am uncertain about the way to separate these codes though. Am looking for suggestions on which of these 3 options is preferred. I prefer option 2, because you are not confused with codes with will not work for your model year. And you can more easy compare what has been changed for your model. ...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

3 years and 3 months old the Kia Soul EV reached 70.000 km. Bought 1 year old with 10.000 km on the ODO meter. No idea what was the deterioration at that time, but I suspect already 8% or so. Latest readout: km: 70239 Avg Det: 13.8 Max Det: 15.4 Min Det: 12.1 Cumulative CED: 12473 kW However, lookin...

Re: Soul Spy?

Thanks! I will add the 5 new values to the SoulEVSpy App "battery" page, and go through the log data you provided, to see if anything looks odd (like the 2019 model year). I hope I will have the time for looking into this during the coming weekend. For now, the model year is derived from ...
