Re: Battery Ageing Model

That document is the best discussion and analysis of battery ageing I have seen. The two important topics - 1/ Never let...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

The AVT data is from the Intertek site in downtown Phoenix. Summer in Phoenix is very hot and sunny. You can look at in Google Earth. The cars sit on the tarmac and charge during the day without any shade. This is the worst possible way to treat a Lithium Ion Battery without dropping it into a volc...

Re: Battery Calibration

I also did an experiment, because my battery deterioration values were rather constant the last month. And I suspected this was the case, because I always charged to 100%.

Re: Soul Spy?

This is page 31 and over 300 posts I am looking at, but I can not find any informations about a running version of the KIASoulApp. Did I miss the URL to download it? Indeed, as JejuSoul replied, see this thread for the Torque Pro app to show e.g. battery Deterioration and tire pressure. https://dl....

Re: Battery Ageing Model

On this forum the SOH is measured as being 96.2 % after driving 34000 km and also using CHADEMO regularly. Unfortunately no information about the minimum and maximum battery degradation numbers which can be measured by OBDII dongle. http://www.goingelectric.de/forum/resources/image/25505 http://www...

Re: Fear of Fast Charging

I've been reading the Soul EV manual. Numerous times it warns that using a fast-charger (CHAdeMO), especially in hot weather, can severely shorten the battery's life. So, I've completely avoided fast-chargers, even though some nearby shopping centers have free ones. Am I being paranoid? I am not su...

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without

Hi guys, I've been busy with my new baby daughter (will be two weeks old tomorrow), so there haven't been much work on OVMS lately. Also I've had problems with my CAN-reader, so I haven't been able to do any analyzing. I'm missing the door lock/unlock-status, so I need to find that before I make a ...
