Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- Here's the latest charging profile of my replacement battery. I don't charge to 100% very often. Compare this with Previous charging profile. https://abload.de/img/curvesokqh.png This is a 28.8A charge from 19.5% SOC to 100% SOC. It took 4 hours 13 minutes to fully charge. Note the energy added is...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

- There is one outlier to all the battery failures talked about in this thread my blue car is still doing fine. My blue car is now 7 years old, has driven about 94,000km, and still has the original battery. The official KIA estimate of SOH is 94.9%. Here's the latest Torque reading. This is from ori...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- It is now 2 1/2 years since I had the battery replaced on my white 27kWh 2015 Soul EV. On December 30th 2019 the car had driven 86,993km before getting a new battery. On June 18th 2022 the odometer reads 126,379km. That's 39,386km on the new battery. Here's the latest Torque reading https://abload...

Re: Reported battery SOH improving over time, rather than the reverse?

...Wondering if Kia has started adjusting the SOH calculations?... Yes. The calculation of the SOH made by the BMS varies depending on which version of the BMS you have had installed. The only accurate way to measure your SOH is to take it to KIA and have them measure it. I have two 2015 Soul EVs. ...

Re: Reported battery SOH improving over time, rather than the reverse?

-
The only relevant measurement of SOH for battery replacement is the one done by KIA.
Just take your car to them and have them measure it.

Re: Do I have a chance?

- Don't drive the car any more than you have to. You want to have enough km left on the odometer so that you can make two round trips to the Kia Service. To get an accurate reading of the SOH you need the battery to recalibrate. Take the car to a heated garage. Charge it to 100% After charging has f...

Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

- Added the latest update - ST.PSEV.KR.E546.211206 Again not much new. (Which is why I skipped the Fall Update.) Got an error first time I updated. https://abload.de/img/photo_2022-01-09_12-1s8kcs.jpg I re-downloaded the entire update, re-transferred it to the SD Card, and re-installed it to the car...

Re: Emergency use of EPB

I just tested this on my 2015. Driving on a dry, quiet, straight, road at 50km/h. I pulled the EPB lever up. The car braked suddenly. At the same time there were warning beeps from the dash. I don't think there was any 'pulsing' of the brakes. Just hard deceleration. The dash showed strong regenerat...
