Peter, thank you for this link. Good discussion on charging in the blog, but I haven't yet taken the time to sit through that EVTV video. Was happy to see them praising the PowerLab8 (I have two which I use extensively for all my Lithium charging and experiments). The blog provided some explanation of the 80% SOC usually associated with QC. I especially liked the discussion of possibly using the PulsaR
for converting solar into direct traction battery charging or for taking stored energy from a large standby battery bank and dumping it into the car's traction pack. This has certainly given me some ideas for my other EVs (or the iMiEV, after the warranty runs out).
Regarding the supposed damage to the LiFePO4 cell during low current charging it was unclear what the conditions were for this to have happened; in any case, the message was clear: shut off charging when the current input drops to 0.05C and do not continue stuffing current into the cell even though the voltage is held constant.
To stay on-topic, I appreciate the various bits of information everyone is providing about adding CHAdeMO to the iMiEV.
