Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

- Have now installed the June 2021 software. (ST.PSEV.KR.E544.210511) Again it doesn't seem to add much. But it did cause 2 glitches. 1/ The Charge Timer lost the 80% setting. But did keep the time. https://abload.de/img/photo_2021-06-03_23-50tkzz.jpg 2/ The energy consumption reset to 99.9 https://...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- The BMS in cars with replacement batteries that have the updated cells is significantly altered. AFAIK the recent BMS update to cars with the original battery is not. (And yes I know I they messed up the heat pump with a badly written update.) Can you all check the value shown in Torque for the ba...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

From reading with Torque and Soul EV Spy, it shows 96*2 cells managed by BMS. Total voltage also indicate total of 96 groupss. My guess is my car will only use 96 out of available 100, with likely intermediate pack connection (4 not used at all). It would do the math since dealer service department...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

Got new battery this week (37510-E4250R) on my 2016... Great. Glad you got a new battery. Edit - Corrected my mistake - E4250R is 96 cells not 100. If your car is a 2016 originally sold in Canada then your previous pack was a 27kWh 96 cell pack with battery heater. (37510-E4050) Your recently insta...

Re: Setting up Torque to show BMS data

' I saw this disclaimer on a Tesla app. It seems appropriate for the Torque codes we use too. "Information shown in this app was not meant for the public and may be inaccurate, subject to change or disappear as the car gets software updates. This information is presented for entertainment purpo...

Re: Battery replacement woes

- Your car has a 27kWh battery not 30kWh. From the data you give from your tests that would be SOH = 80%. You will not get a replacement battery until SOH goes below 70%. It is more common than not that the Kia dealers reset the battery computer to give you a false reading. They have no idea that th...

Re: Comparison Of Fuel Economy for Battery Electric Vehicles

- In 2017 the incoming Republicans ended Advanced Vehicle Testing of Battery Electric Vehicles in the US. Am hoping the incoming Democrats will restore this program because it provided really useful data. - Looking back at the laboratory analysis of a 2015 Soul EV battery pack, There is so much grea...

Re: What is the total capacity of the MY2018 battery.

- I have just realised how easy it is to refute the silly claim that the 2018 Soul EV has total capacity of 31.8 kWh. One guess is 31.8 kWh by contributors to - Wikipedia: Kia Soul EV They make the guess that Kia 'improved' the usable window of cell capacity from 37,5 Ah to 40 Ah out of 42,36 Ah. Th...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- Here is a 28.8A charge from 7% SOC to 100% SOC. (The input to the OBC averaged 28.7A, 216.4V over 5 hours. Both stay fairly constant throughout.) (The output from the OBC varies as the battery voltage increases. Voltage goes up, current goes down.) (The ratio of input power / output power = effici...
