BTW, how did you become aware of the cost to Kia? Do you mean dealer invoiced parts (on the work order), or do you mean what Kia actually pays for the OBC from their vendor/sub?
Strangely, I found this. The OBC is part no. 364000E040:

The OBC there is listed for $2,792.58 USD. Looks pretty darn easy to swap out, form the schematic and just looking at my own vehicle.
I saw the price on the work order that was sitting on the counter as i signed my copy.
Btw, since they changed the OBC my car is now drawing 25 to 26.2 amps whereas before it was drawing 29-30 amps.
I have a Suncountry EV40P EV Charger.
I'm sorry for you. Apparently, this is what they changed from MY2015 to MY2016 Kia SOUL EV. MY2015 charges at full speed at every amp number the EVSE tells the car to charge and MY2016 does it at 10-15% slower - at every speed. If it's set to 10A, it will charge at 8.5 Amps and so on.
Either you got a different charger than what you had before or the new charger has a different firmware, the same as MY2016 Souls, which charges more slowly, than it should.
