Re: Inside an iMiEV's LEV50 cell

Interesting, thanks for posting.
Is this a failed cell, and are you pulling it apart just to discover what's inside, or do you intend to modify/fix it?

in 24 hours lost 15% SOC . What is wrong with my battery?
Could it be that your 12v battery is faulty so it is constantly being charged by the traction battery?

Re: 2012 Imiev 70K kms, battery u/s.

Has anybody ever taken a Manufacturer to Fair Trading? I will talk to them tomorrow about how to go about it. The goods supplied are not 'fit for purpose' when the range is now much less than 75% of the range when new. I have asked for the full testing results so I can get an independent expert to ...

Re: Dealer can tell you kWhs in iMiEV

I had the feeling the range remaining guess-o-meter has been telling me lower numbers lately in spite of warmer weather. Do you check your tyre pressure regularly? iMiEV tyres are notorious for slowly deflating. Here is my iMiEV data obtained via OBD from my EvBatMon Android & iPhone App - Date Odo...

Re: Outlander PHEV suddenly disabled

What it could mean is that the safety/ longevity margins are reduced but the energy available to the user is increased. I feel the only way the real range could be extended by around 20% (as is reported by rhills) would be as you say nuggetgalore - allowing deeper discharge and/or higher recharge. ...

I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Has anyone successfully claimed a battery warranty in Australia? I know of 2, #1 in WA which is documented on this forum, where the owner paid something like $6k from memory and got to keep the old battery. #2 was John in the Blue Mountains (Sydney) who had his replaced in 2015 at no cost, after a ...

I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Is it true that the battery pack only balances when it is charged to full. Balancing is triggered in the iMiEV ONLY when you run the iMiEV to <2 bars (ie flashing), and balancing only happens once the charge is completed, and needs to be via a Level 1 or 2 charge, ie not CHADEMO fastcharge. If you ...

Has anyone used the tyre goo aerosol can that comes with the iMiEV? I have a slow leak on my ride-on mower and wonder if I can use tiny bit of the can and still have the rest for the iMiEV, or can you only use the can only once? I think the can in the PHEV is the same as the iMiEV so it should be am...

Monday it dropped 5 bars in 17km with zero net climb That does not sound good. Are you definitely giving it enough time to do the balancing to completion after the drop to <2 bars? If you are running on a timer or offpeak period it may not be long enough. The battery warranty in Australia is pretty...
