Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

Looks like the least-worst way to resurect this car and my dignity is to build a non-cooled battery using the 63 Ah LG pouch cells. I'l put them inside sealed polycarbonate enclosures and maybe pack them out with grease to ensure a long service life. I can fit 8 stacks of 12 cells each inside the ma...

Re: WA Branch meetings for 2020

Hi everyone! We're meeting again at UWA, but NOT in the Billings room. We'll meet at the DC fast charger in the carpark outside the UWA club. This will be an informal meeting as we're still unable to meet at UWA due to COV-19 policy. We're on track for next meeting though. Bring yourself and an EV a...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

No idea, but it's clear that the leak in module 3 started right underneath cell group 6. Once the base plates dry out I might see some evidence of corrosion, but it's most likely it was slowly leaking through the screw holes and up to the walls of the enclosures. But the killer was the condensation ...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

I've had the Prelude in the shed for about a week now, and it seems the offending cell is slowly dropping. I also noticed that the 12 V auxiliary battery was consistently flat, but this could be mainly due to how little Francess was driving. I charged it up with a power supply and left it overnight,...

Re: 2020 Ioniq

Yeah it sure seems like you'd be better off spending your time charging in the lower end of the battery's range. But that doesn't change the fact that it's still got ~260 km to a charge. Sure, charging above 50% SOC is slower, but you've already got more range than would have if you'd started chargi...

Re: 2020 Ioniq

It's also a function of the voltage of the battery. It's only 86 cells in series, so 360 V max. A DC fast charger is limited at 120 A, so that's a peak of 43 kW. But since 360 V is the maximum, the charge will be tapering at the 3.9 V per cell stage. So I think there's room to charge faster, but not...

Re: 2020 Ioniq

We just got back from our trip to Albany this WA day long weekend. Last year's EV long weekend was off to Esperance in a Zoe, but this was something a little more manageable at short notice. The Ioniq is very comfortable, and all the cruise control features are pretty good. Dealing with a car slowin...

335 km is the best we've seen around town. But on the highway I reckon 250 kmis dependable.

Re: 2020 Ioniq Wh/km

Curious to see what sort of range estimates folks are getting with their 2020 Ioniqs. My wife hopped in today after charging to full overnight and it read 499 km! At the bottom of the hill we had 516 km. I presume this is based on the last 5 km of driving, which was no doubt very light - around 80 W...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

It's still possible for coolant to work it's way up through a screw hole and into the base of a module. I won't know until it all comes out though.

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

Yeah I did think about installing something like this, but I really need to determine if the coolant is leaking or not first. If it's leaking, there's really little I can do about it since the cells are effectively potted in place. The battery has been showing a low current leakage path (~11 mA) to ...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

It can be drawn up by capillary action, and it can travel a long way through narrow seams. It would be just my luck that it's able to pond right where I least expected it to. So for example it might be possible for it to work it's way up a screw hole and into the bottom of the module.

Responses in bold If the cell goes up together with the rest I would expect the cell may be ok. I didn't fully charge the battery - juse enough to get the car to my workshop. It is still sitting 100 mV lower than the rest, which could be as much as 20 or 30 Ah out. Any chance it was discharged at a ...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

I reckon the cell has been in contact with leaking coolant 😟. Reservoir is low and there's an accumulation of crud around some of the boltholes under the battery pack. Might need to abandon the cooling system to save the pack.
