Re: Range Remaining Lower at Full Charge

It's winter - I wouldn't worry about it. Seat heater has a negligible contribution to range decrease. What year is your i-MiEV? You say that RR=62 is normal... do you fully fully charge the car often in that NOLA heat? THAT I would worry about from the perspective of battery longevity... If you're c...

Re: Achieving ready light without BMS connected, a REX and some flood

drcat, congratulations on your purchase! Before you do anything to/with the car, DRIVE IT! Get a feel for what works and what doesn't, and especially note how simply driving gently and slowing down has a dramatic effect on how far you can go. We have a saying around here: "Range is whatever you...

Re: Lost a Bar Overnight First Time

Um, thomash85715, a few points, if I may - 1. Amount of time it takes the car to charge, irrespective of Level 1 or Level 2, has nothing to do with the end RR reading. 2. EXACTLY what Amp-hour reading did CaniOn give? 70% does not tell us which baseline you used. My guess is that your capacity is ar...

Re: DIY 220VAC outlet.

... It's real since 2012 :shock: The box can connect to chademo plug. This thing never came to fruition as far as I can tell. https://www.plugincars.com/mitsubishi-unveils-blackout-inspired-i-miev-power-box-114873.html Discussed on this forum, among other places, here: http://myimiev.com/forum/view...

Re: AC Compressor Mount Failure

Great! Adoepner, thank you for following up with this fix. I shudder to think what Mitsu charges for these things.

Re: 2016 iOn with 34k km / 21k miles

Yuri, thank you for the plot showing battery capacity vs. mileage for various years. Interesting that the newest ones show in-excess of 45Ah. The CaniOn app is very good for looking at cell voltages, but if I recall it does not work on the 2016 or 2017 cars to display battery capacity (Ah). I think ...

Re: 2016 iOn with 34k km / 21k miles

Hello Yuri, and welcome to the forum. The 2016 iOn has the improved LEV50N battery cells. When new, the car's battery capacity reading would have been around 45Ah, so this car has lost probably around 20% of its capacity, which is a bit much for this five-year-old car with such a low odometer readin...

Re: Aptera is Back?

I still have to crunch numbers. I have some doubts on the solar charging, but so far the rest of the numbers jive. I’d love to see how they can actually fit 100 kWh of battery in the car. For something this efficient, I can't see getting a battery that large, as they will have DCFC. The full solar ...

Re: Aptera is Back?

Ten years ago I had put down a deposit and would have settled for just about anything they produced. I did put down a deposit for this new one a week ago, but I'm afraid that I'll be very very picky. Of course, the Aptera's main attraction is the very low Cd, but if this is going to become our long-...

Re: Buying a 2011 iMiev in 2020 - battery check

is there anything decent for generic ELM327?
