Servicing Imiev (90K service) K Mart??

Hi,
has anyone used K-mart for servicing? If I use Mr Shitty, I have to take it to the Gold Coast, or about 3 charges each way!

The local K-mart car servicing says they can do it (& much cheaper too!) I feel it is my ONLY option.

regards, Doug

Re: Low Cost BMS for Home Storage Batteries

Hi, I am interested. I have my old Imiev battery, but I need to find a compatible Grid connect inverter/charger.

Thanks all for the info. It ended up that MMAL refused to sell me the battery to self-install. (Actually, they have given me an ex-gratia deal of a discount off the battery pack. It was conditional on my having the pack installed by a certified dealer. This also brings a word of caution: my first qu...

Went to get a quote on the battery today. Apparently, the local dealer cannot supply EV parts: he must order from an 'approved' dealer, then I pay freight from that dealer: Restrictive trade practise?? Anyway, apparently there is 2 style of covers (65974 plug) either old style oblong, or new round. ...

I received my new OBDLink LX adaptor, so was able to read the battery state. It appears cells 11, 19, 21, 64 & 72 are 0.015 lower than most of the other batteries.
