Malm, 2011 i-MiEV, Portugal

Yes, accurately measure degradation by bars that come and go, percentage of useful turtle,... is impossible. But can give us some ideas about what is happening. I assume, instead of the majority of i-Miev owners, loss of capacity over 5% a year. I understand that i-MiEV from Canada or Russia will sh...

"So driving about 120km with one charge/cycle this means after 120.000km you have 90% of the capacity from a new one (at 25°C)." Yes, if you do the 120.000 km in less then a year. Not true if you do the same 120.000 km in 5 years. If you do the same 120.000 km in 5 years, degradation will be a lot m...

When an i-MiEV only charges to 96,5% (not always, but many times), that is a result of a loss of 3,5% capacity. Another part of degradation can be hidden in turtle, and maybe it will stop at 8% SoC. So, there could be 10% degradation almost unnoticeable for us.

You mean figure 8? In my understanding this is the capacity loss for a fully loaded cell sitting there without using it. Figure 9 ist the interesting one, i think. After 1.000 cycles there is 90% of capacity available. So driving about 120km with one charge/cycle this means after 120.000km you have...

Yes, Martin, I know that document, but I only understand the things in english (the most importante, I think). 65% capacity after 10 years at 25º C - the most importante information for me ever about the i-MiEV. The degradation will go faster in the first years, so 20/25% should be expected at the e...

Yes. A glitch. Only for a second, then all becames normal. But happens to me many times, when starting the car, and I feel that it means something.

I think this will be intersting for you. How temperature change in a fast charge. Well, two fast charges. One after other.

Before I had canion, it is possible that I reached more then 40º C several times. Since I have it, I think this was the highest value, after a quick charge. With a second quick charge, temperatures rapidly went down.

"In my idea how BMS save the battery at low SOC is, that BMS do not observe the system voltage (300 - 360V). It observes the cell voltage (3,4 - 4,1V). If this drop down after a dedicated lowest value it will shutdown the car." It observes the cell voltage, when a single cell reaches 2,75V (not 3,4 ...

Canion dongle

I have a STN1170 OBD-II and Canion running on a Samsung Note 3. Works fine. I use it all the time (driving, at charge). Never take the dougle out, always in the can-bus. Never had problems with that.

One thing I didn't give much attention to is cold weather. I live in a warm climate (subtropical qld Australia) so winter tempretures are very mild. But I do feel there is a slight reduction in range when its cold 15C vs 25-30c. Perhaps only 2-3%. Kurt Yes, not as hot as in Brisbane here, but I agr...

This time, BMS cut off at 298 V. Other times, depending of the medium speed or other factors, can be at 280 V or even 320 V

My point was while the RR high score might be a fun number to play with it has little value in the real world. Yes I'm sure running the battery down to BMS cut off won't kill it . though if you want to baby your battery for longest life its best avoided. Kurt Yes, just played with the RR high score...

mRR - maximum range remaining OffgridQLD, yes you can get a very large RR number if you could run down a 25km hill, but 175 km will be possible only for a limited number of us. You can try to do that, get 175 km mRR, but probably it will be impossible for you. I drive mode turtle to 0,0% with my wor...

Malm, 2011 i-MiEV, Portugal

From my experience, I think that the 2% SoC are not correctly evaluated by the car. With that voltage, SoC should be higher, maybe 7%. I think the car, when we drive at high speed, will give us a SoC that is less then the real SoC. But when we drive at very low speeds, it will do the opposite, and w...

Red bars means energy consumed by the heater. The amout of Wh spent in heating the interior of the car. Don't use it and you will never see red in the Canion.

201,4 km with 3 bars left. That's better then doing 220 km and ending with no energy.

Searching for someone who has made more then 200 km with one charge, made 175 km of mRR, saw frequently one 5% bar going away at middle charge last year, believes that lost a little more then 15% of the original capacity, now with 66666 km in the i-MiEV odometer. Do you know someone that matches wit...
