Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

I started tracking my battery capacity (Torque Pro) on a monthly basis: Date Mileage Capacity (kWh) 5/5/2019 18601 16.1 6/1/2019 18905 15.9 7/3/2019 19259 15.9 7/13/2019 19425 16.2 8/1/2019 19669 16.3 9/1/2019 19878 16.4 I haven't succeeded in using BBCode to format this as a table. This is almost a...

Re: Charging 101

I have seen cooling come on during rate and departure mode charging while the car is plugged in and waiting to charge because it is not yet off-peak. This does not happen very often, but I have seen it on at least a couple of occasions. This is on a 2015 and could have been during partial peak rathe...

Re: Charging 101

The summer is also very warm (hot) in the Sierra Nevada foothills where I live, and I leave the car plugged in for this very reason. The cooling system seems to work pretty well. The cooling system doesn't come on very often when the car is plugged in and not actively charging, but I've seen it come...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

Is the car turned on? Some values won't display otherwise. I can't remember whether the battery capacity is one of those.

Edit: I just went out to the garage to check. The car doesn't have to be on for the battery capacity to be displayed. I'm using ((A*256)+B)/30.

Re: Questions and Data tracking

.... Has anyone ever experienced the battery capacity go back up? Is it because the temperatures are warmer? I've started tracking my battery capacity monthly. My battery capacity at the beginning of this month (7/3/2019, 14259 miles) was 15.9 kWh. Starting last night, it seemed that I was having a...

Re: Something odd with both displays

You can see this if you look at the pictures of the instrument cluster in the official GM "Getting to Know Your 2015 Spark EV", so yes, this is probably normal.

Re: Something odd with both displays

I don't know whether this is normal or not, but I see this too. I think it's been that way since I got the car in September.

Re: 2016 spark ev wifi for full time home internet connection?

I think I read something recently in a Bolt EV forum that the Bolt will shut off after two hours when you do the exit through the passenger door, but maybe not if it is in neutral rather than park. This was on a Bolt, not a Spark EV, and was in the context of using the Bolt (through an inverter) as ...

Re: Battery degredation

I found the following HV battery capacity information from Chevrolet Product Information documents for each model year: 2014 Spark EV - 21.0 kWh 2015 Spark EV - 18.4 kWh 2016 Spark EV - 19.0 kWh That's interesting. I had assumed that 2015 and 2016 were the same. Using data from the energy informati...
