Thanks for doing all this and sharing it with us!
I was trying to find the battery ID in Android LeafSpy, but the Beta does not appear to be available. I just updated to version 0.46.171 that was updated on Oct 3, 2021. When I go to Read ECU Versions it does not have the Battery ID next to the VIN. Has that been moved somewhere else or is there another app available now for pairing a battery?

Hi,
Pairing is available in the normal version of Leafspy Pro for android now. The option to pair only becomes visible if the fault code is active. Hope this helps, I've had maybe 20+ people try it out now :)

Oh that's awesome, thank you!
I hope you're enjoying the new day-job, I'm sure the EV world will benefit greatly once again having you work with charging stations.

Re: Battery Pairing - Testers wanted

This is for swapping batteries of the same capacity right?

Does an upgrade to a larger capacity battery still require a CANBUS box?

Re: Battery Pairing - Testers wanted

I successfully swapped and paired 24 kWh battery packs in my 2013 Leaf. I used Leaf Spy to do the pairing.

Battery Pairing - What's possible with LeafSpyPro and what's not

Glad to hear that :)

I think this forum needs a sticked wiki that explains what is possible with Leafspy and what's not. Example something like this?


Battery swap vs Battery upgrade
A direct swap is replacing the same size battery with an identical one for the same version of your vehicle. A battery upgrade is installing a newer generation battery. Take a look at these 4 examples to learn the differences.

A 2011 ZE0 LEAF gets its 24kWh pack replaced by another 24kWh pack from a 2012 ZE0 LEAF. This is a direct swap.

A 2011 ZE0 LEAF gets its 24kWh pack replaced by a 24kWh pack from a 2015 AZE0 LEAF. This is a battery upgrade.

A 2013 AZE0 LEAF gets its 24kWh pack replaced by another 24kWh pack from a 2015 ZE0 LEAF. This is a direct swap.

A 2015 AZE0 LEAF gets its 24kWh pack replaced by a 40kWh pack from a 2018 ZE1 LEAF. This is a battery upgrade.

Now that we have swap/upgrade terms explained, let's tackle the easiest one first, the direct swap. After a direct swap has been performed, the only thing preventing you from driving the vehicle is a check EV warning light along with turtle mode. The fault code P3102 will be triggered. To clear this code and remove turtle mode, simply perform a clear with the latest Leafspy Pro version (0.46.172 for Android). That's it, enjoy the newfound range!

The battery upgrade maybe the procedure more commonly performed. This requires either one or two things.

If you are upgrading your 2011-2012 ZE0 LEAF, you will require a B24 22-36pin adapter. You will also need a CAN-bridge. Etc. more info goes here
