Re: Battery Capacity Testing

Coulomb, thank you for your ongoing efforts. I'll throw in another data point. I'm planning to replace MR BEAN's battery with a junkyard salvage unit shortly after 100k miles, currently at 99,220 on the odometer. Current stats according to my MUT3 clone: Battery current capacity: 27.3 Ah Battery max...

Re: would anybody be interested in parts ? like the HV battery?

Whoa Bobby- we're neighbors! I'm in Graham, so I drive thru Puyallup at least twice a day!
I'm out of work right now so would be happy to help in either the rebuild or the parting out. I'm PM'ing my phone number.

Re: A New Tire For Us!

While I had the Achilles ATR Sport tires off the car during Seattle's recent "snowmageddon", I had them siped at Les Schwab tires for about $18 each (Razor cuts across the tread). Traction is definitely improved. I've been unable to break them loose by applying full throttle on cold, wet t...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Yes, this victim had an original 12V battery, and it's weakness was not apparent until the owner tried to drive in 'total loss mode'- overnight 12V recharging and DCFC traction battery recharging. He replaced the 12V battery before we replaced the OBC. This car had been subjected to 'hard shutdowns'...

Re: Weird Charging Curve

Thanks Kevin1956Murray, I have this same issue with ChargePoint public EVSE, whether the unit is new or old, weather is warm or cold.
It's meant that I now only use ChargePoint L2 if I have several hours to stop there, otherwise I'll hit a DCFC.

Another successful transplant: was Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

I replaced another OBC today, transplanted a 11k mile 2011 manufacture date charger from Texas into a 2012 Premium Edition with 44k miles. 90 minutes from start to finish, including a lot of BS time with the crew of EV club members. I could probably do the next one by myself within 45 minutes (IMHO)...

Re: would anybody be interested in parts ? like the HV battery?

Sorry to hear of the loss, there is definitely a lot of interest in parts. Shipping adds a lot of cost, so please post your location. At least picking up another I-MiEV is cheap right now.

A university near Houston TX purchased a salvaged pack

I just purchased a low mileage onboard chargerr from a Texas salvage yard, and in friendly negotiations with the counter man, he mentioned he had sold the battery pack to a college near Houston. Probably for cells to use in a Formula E project or such, but that could be a source of interesting resea...

Re: Will not preheat when fully charged.

The car will absolutely preheat from the remote when fully charged. I do this EVery morning in winter. L1 doesn't provide enough power for adequate preheat. I've done it successfully on an SPX (Bosch) Power XPress, Clipper Creek, and Duosida EVSE. Even on our recent 15 degree mornings, the remote de...
