Re: The aftermarket cell replacement saga

Capacity increase considerations: From what I understand about batteries, the monitoring board will track voltage to determine if each cell is charged enough or not. Since the cells are connected in series, the same current flows through each of them. The only way to charge one cell slower than ano...

Re: The aftermarket cell replacement saga

Does anyone have the dimensions of the LEV50 cell? I have the dimensions of the exterior casing (171mm x 44mm x 115mm) but I could not find the distance between the terminals (center to center). The terminals are M8 but does anyone know the thread pitch? (That is the distance between two adjacent th...

Re: Need to purchase obc unit for 2012 i-miev

Following instructions on this forum, I have just installed a 2013 OBC in my 2012 Miev to reduce the chances of having the same failure again. Has been working fine for 3 weeks (2000km). Behaves exactly as it should. As you mention, I don’t know if the dealer would have replaced my obc because the f...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

In the newer 2013 OBC, the wires (in fact, those are small busbars once you are in the OBC box) are labeled CHGP and CHGN on the motherboard. Would I be right to assume CHGP is the positive and CHGN is the negative? I will make sure the positive of the OBC connects to the fuse in the MCU...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

Those videos were very useful. I am trying to connect the 2012 high voltage connector to a 2013 OBC. The odd are 50-50 that I get it right (or wrong)... I don't think the videos mention how the wiring was finalized. From what I found, the wires going to the high voltage power connector of the 2012 O...
