Any update on your voltage testing? For my pack, I have identified the individual bad cell in the module. I am trying to find where I can buy a 10 cell module. With the batteries in older KIA Souls coming to the end of their usable lives, there must be some uded batteries out there.
Does anyone know if there were ANY changes to the main battery pack between 2015 and 2016? I have found a battery pack from a wrecked 2016 KIA Soul EV and want to see if there were any wiring changes, hardware, software, firmware, etc?
I found a replacement battery pack in the USA and am trying to ship it to Canada. Since Lithium Ion batteries are considered a dangerous good in both the USA and Canada, the carrier needs a copy of the battery cell test report to show to customs that the battery is from a reputable manufacturer and not a knock-off. Since the batteries are made in South Korea and imported into the USA, all imported batteries must have this report. Normally it would be wit the car when it is imported. This requirement is called the UN 38.3 Test Summary Report from the manufacturer and is part of the US Department of Transportation 49 CFR. I have contacted KIA USA but I am not hopeful they will assist with this. One person on this thread mentioned they got a new KIA battery pack in a wooden box. Did you receive a battery cell test report? The test has 8 categories - T.1 to T.8. If anyone has a copy of their test report, pleas forward to me. (Apparently the test report dosn't have to be on that specific battery, just that type of battery.) Mine battery is for a 2015 or 2106 KIA Soul EV. Any thoughts or assistance would be appreciated.
