But they are labelled as MY18 cells. The assumption I make is that the MY18 cells must have a different chemistry that is more energy...

Re: 2016 Soul EV Battery replacement - Out of Stock?

- They are not 'out-of-stock' anymore. I took my white car to the main Kia service center in the city today for a battery replacement. There were multiple stacks of crates containing new batteries. I counted 36. All for the Soul EV. https://abload.de/img/photo_2019-12-30_14-4b5kn4.jpg I asked about ...

Re: Charging Fault error.

- This thread is mostly about the charging errors caused by a broken OBC. This prevents slow charging. Fast charging using the Chademo plug is unaffected by a broken OBC.

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- There's a really interesting blog post with a lot of great analysis / data here - What can 6,000 electric vehicles tell us about EV battery health?

According to him the Kia dealer called him after he had picked up the car, saying that he had to come back for a software update (for the GOM to work properly). Interesting find. Thanks for posting. There is a thread...
