This appears to be another case of an author or editor who decides in advance what outcome he (or the corporate sponsor) desires, and then tailors the data and analysis to reach that conclusion. The tl;dr: money talks. David Roden - Akron, Ohio, USA EVDL Administrator = = = = = = = = = = = =

Should have bought a Volt!  The 2013-2014 can be purchased for 11-13K$  My 2014 had 51k miles and I bought it for 11.8K.I'm not trying to be a jerk for mentioning this and understand your technical issues, I still own 2 2000 Honda Insight's that I needto figure out what I should do, sell or

For $60, I'd just replace it. I don't know anything about the "Plug-In Supply" conversion system, or how a lower voltage will affect anything else in the car. The replacement cell will (presumably) have more capacity than your original ones, but assuming that the current loop cuts out the

It's very easy to test a battery. Take it out of the pack and try to charge it. It will rise in voltage or not. You BMS boards probably have a minimum voltage to operate and cell fell below that voltage and does not imply the cells is bad. After you charge it then hook up to a know load and

I'm new to this discussion list, so I ask your patience: my understanding of EV systems and Li-ion batteries is limited. The question is: replace a bad battery in a pack of 19, or make the pack 2 batteries smaller and suffer an unknown loss of voltage and range? Background: I think I have a

3.00V is considered dead. 2.67V is really dead. Your pack is only as good as the weakest (lowest capacity) cell. Unfortunately we don't know anything about the BMS system. I would guess that the electronics consists of a DC to DC converter. Either the converter (or the BMS) may not work
