Re: Decyphering iMiEV and iON CAR-CAN message data

Hi kiev I did a search and found your posts on the battery replacement. Luckily I don't need a new battery but I did asked about the price at the dealer. They quoted 100,000 Dkr. which is about $15,000 US. There are still low mileage iMiev/CZero/iOns around for much less.

yep, ridiculous that Mitsu hasn't budged on the price of replacement batteries during a period in which the global cost of EV packs has fallen from around $500/kWh (2010-2012) to approx. $140/kWh nowadays. This is getting serious as our 2012 batteries fall off warranty and begin to finally show greater than 20% depreciation. Mitsu actually dropped the I-MiEV price by 35% in the early JDM versions due to the "rapidly falling cost of batteries", and that had to be one factor in the 20% price drop on the 2014 model versus the 2012 premium edition, given that it had most of the same features...
c'mon Mitsubishi, we got excited with the OBC warranty extension, in recognition of the only significant design flaw on this vehicle. How's about stepping up with some better battery options for extending the lives (or EVen the range) of our beloved bubble cars?

Well... Here we are in 2020

And here I am with a 2010 I-Miev, with only 27000 miles on it, that can only just cover 25 miles on a full charge!
So this thread is more relevant now that it was when it was first posted but there is still no good news regarding official replacement costs I see.

I have an OBDII dongle and a metered plug on their way to me so I can gather some data and figure out what's going on with the pack I have but, regardless of mileage, at 10 years old it could just be regular degradation. We'll see...

So I'm looking at 18650 3.7v 5000mAh Li-ion cells. Using these would of course mean assembling my own battery packs from scratch BUT... To purchase just over the required replacement capacity for the standard I-miev, the batteries I have found so far would only cost £660 in this format. That sounds too good to be true.
Am I calculating the capacity correctly? Is 5000mAh = 5Ah? Is there another factor I'm not considering?

EDIT: Never mind, I'm likely looking at FAKE cells... smh.

5000mAh (5Ah) 18650 doesn`t exists.

But. cappacity isn`t everithing.
Odher parametters is important too. Maximum charger and discharge current.

I find only one 18650 cells whot can yous in ION because have hign charge/discharge current is Molicel.
