Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Thanks. I wouldn't want to block the air moving between the cells (especially when the aircon fires up during DC charging)

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Excellent news. Two questions:
- What kind of jury-rigging?
- Do the posts line up with the original cells, or did you need to fabricate new busbars?

Re: Nuggetgalore's iMiEV charger failure

So the trouble with your OBC started while you had the old battery? Have we yet found a car with a fresh 12V aux battery where the fuse&caps have released the magic smoke?

@nuggetgalore how old is your 12V aux battery?

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Max voltage 4.2, and the imiev charges to just under 4.1 The lev50's out of the imiev are 4.2V fully charged as well but mitsubishi stop at 4.1V for longer life. Which makes sense because there is basically no extra capacity in the last 0.1V anyway. In typical NMC cells, the top 0.1 V is very rough...

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Nice. Same terminal style as the LEV series, or is it solder as with the cells you were looking at before?

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Ohhh, so not the SDI 94 Ah cell? I'm going to hazard a guess that the BMS will track down to zero blobs for the top 50 or 60 Ah, but the car will continue to drive until the worst cell reaches a critical Voltage, lighting Mister Turtle. GOM might be similarly weird.
