Re: I want my 281!

Sun Oct 02, 2011 10:45 am

I just found this thread and spent the last 2 hours slogging through all the history. Very interested in the subject since I cannot seem to come even close to 281. 80% charge takes me to ~195 and 100% charge takes me to ~240. At least the ratio 100/80 is within error bars but the high value is disturbing to me. Particularly since I only get ~46 mile from 80% to LBW (no freeway). I am in PHX and up until mwalsh's last post was thinking temp could be my culprit (I start the charge at 6pm when the garage is still ~100F). However, last night I plugged in at 11pm (garage was considerably cooler) and still hit only 197 gids and 386V on an 80% charge.

I would take the car to the dealer to have the battery checked--195 gids is awfully low for 80% charge.

Started charging at 11pm with 61 gids and 2 bars remaining
Ended 80% charge at 2am with 197 gids, 9 bars, 386V having drawn 11kWh from the wall
Started charging again at 10:20am with 197 and 9 bars
Ended 100% charge at 11:30am with 238 gids, 12 bars, 394V having drawn 4.3kWh from the wall

I guess I should mention my capacity guage still indicates 12 bars.

Was suggested earlier in this thread. I like it - easier the say than S.O.C. and makes it clear exactly what we are talking about.

I hereby proclaim that I shall heretofore refer to the 281 units of battery charge as "gids".

You humanoids crack me out! :lol:

TickTock,
Your charge results are certainly strange.
Your 11 PM to 2 AM is too short to finish charging, right?
Are you sure that you are finishing charging in the morning session?
Try no timers, and let it charge until it is complete.
What EVSE are you using.
Have you tried a different plug or charging location?

Is the CAN-Selector switch of the GID-Meter in the position to select the EV-CAN bus?

For an 80% charge your raw was 197, but what was your SOC%? For a 100% charge your raw was 238 and your SOC was what %?

The % is merely a factor of 238/281, or:

84.69% (his 100% charge)

197/281 is:

70.10% (his 80% charge)

Oh, I know that, but I don't have 'raw' data yet, just the SOC% so now I understand that he definitely has a problem. When I charge to 80%, the SOC always shows close to 77% (10 bars). I only charge to 100% once a month to balance the pak, but I'm going to doubt it will read 100% SOC...prob high 90's.
