If nothing else,I am happy to be co sponsor of a 93Ah cell project.mark_hetho wrote: ↑Thu, 09 Apr 2020, 09:16 I agree that it is best to sell the car unmodified, unless it is sold directly to an owner who is taking it on as a project. Then I guess hope to find a good buyer for the cells as home energy storage. They'd be a lot easier to put together than thousands of 18650s.
If there was another test project car available I'd be willing to donate to fund the costs of 3 or 4 93Ah cells to see how the project goes (shame about the AUD/USD at the moment). I suspect if it were opened up to crowdfunding from international imiev owners it might get a bit of interest?
On a less happy subject, my iMiEV has contracted the virus (anyway that is whom I blame).
It has recently stopped charging about halfway, then fully charged at a second attempt.Thought it was my charge timer,as it charged ok since. But today it charged for a few minutes and then finito. Dashboard shows a few errors, the most disconcerting is the power unit warning light (Item 14 page 8-11/8-15).
Funnily enough I can still drive the car (I did one meter back and forward to test) but the auxiliary battery does not get charged when the car is in "ready".
I will soon have to ask the brains trust what could be the matter,one thing that crossed my mind was the faulty resister mentioned some where (have to try locating that thread again).
