Re: Battery only charging halfway

That's the spirit--adventure and the quest for knowledge.

You've got the tools to monitor the cell and ensure it doesn't get driven too low, so if you can drive it for a couple of weeks to get some data before swapping out, well then, press on regardless, and endeavor to persevere.

That's a great idea--i had a car honk at me and give me the finger even though i had my turn signal on, but was using regen for braking. Maybe i'll use the emergency flashers next time to get their at...

Any hi-res pics of Miev battery module control boards?

Has anyone dismantled a battery pack and opened a module to determine the details of the circuit boards used for monitoring and balancing? Or even better determined the schematic for these?

Always Kurious,
