Re: I only get 50 km, 2015 Soul estimates 130.

Yesterday the new battery pack was installed under warranty. The range shown is now 169 km and Soul EV Spy app shows a SOH of 111.5% :shock: :D

Thanks again everyone!

Re: No Proof of Maintenance

Here in the Netherlands, KIA did make a point about having full maintenance history when I claimed warranty on my battery. My car was imported from Germany, so Kia Netherlands did not have any maintenance records. It took them a while and they needed to contact Kia in Germany several times before th...

Re: The Internet Turned on the Kia Soul Today and Things Got Mean

I thought it was kinda funny. I did not know that the Kia Soul is so common, I thought not many had been sold. But apparently enough to annoy a lot of people :)

Re: I only get 50 km, 2015 Soul estimates 130.

So, I claimed a bad battery under warranty. It took some time and some convincing, but Kia Netherlands has approved a battery replacement. The dealership measured a SOH of 57%. Because the car is imported, they needed to check with Kia Germany. But everything’s fine now and the battery pack has been...

Re: Help wanted analyzing Soul Spy EV Battery results

After a few more charge cycles, the SOH is now increased to 50.9%. The GOM now guesses 86 km on a full charge. Tomorrow I’ll contact the dealership again to claim a new battery :D

Re: Help wanted analyzing Soul Spy EV Battery results

Thank you both, this is very helpful! After each charge cycle (< 20% to 100%) the range starts to decrease. It went from 140, 130 and now at 120 km (while weather is getting warmer). At 100% charge the SOH is still 42,8%, battery cell map looks the same but with higher values around 4.00. I will mak...

Re: Help wanted analyzing Soul Spy EV Battery results

Thanks for your replies! To make my case against Kia here, I am going to write them a report and letter. They are in terrible denial and tell me this car is normal. Sorry for asking so many questions, but here we go: - From the cell map, is there anything I can say or conclude? For instance, shouldn...

Help wanted analyzing Soul Spy EV Battery results

So, I got myself an Android phone (Nokia 1 Plus) and Soul Spy EV Lite, Konnwei dongle, and today I did the first readings. Please note: • Battery management was reset in december and I haven't made enough discharge/charge cycles with outside temp > 10° yet. Is this necessary to get a good measuremen...
